Pilates on Fourth was created out of a desire to offer patients a full range of treatment. I wanted to provide a comfortable pleasant facility where patients who had come for physiotherapy could work on their strength and flexibility to enable them to be “work fit”; to enable them to be the best they could be. Never one to do things by halves, Pilates on Fourth is a fully equipped, air conditioned studio with an outlook rarely seen from a Pilates studio – we have the most amazing view from our deck across the pool to a mosaic inspired wall, lovingly created by a beautiful friend and artist. My vision was to create a space where each client felt safe, comfortable and fully supported whilst striving to accomplish their goals. Our classes are small – max of 4 clients per studio session. This ensures personalised attention from our instructors, enabling you to maximise the benefits from your time spent doing Pilates.
