Pilates Canberra has qualified and passionate instructors who will tailor a program to suit each individual and help them achieve their goals.

Whether you are an athlete aiming for peak performance, a grandparent who wants to be able to get down on the floor to play with your grandchildren or an employee who wants to be comfortable sitting at a desk for extended hours, Pilates can help you achieve your goals.

Pilates uses specially designed equipment and breathing strategies along with a specific regime of exercises that have been developed over almost the last one hundred years.

There are thousands of Pilates exercises, and with a Pilates specialist like Pilates Canberra these exercises are used in a wholistic and structured way that challenges the entire body in every workout.

Director of Pilates Canberra, Lanette Gavran said, "We live Pilates, we love Pilates and we are passionate about the Pilates method.

"All 11 of our instructors are PilatesITC qualified and have or are studying the Advanced Diploma of the Pilates Method which is the highest government recognised Pilates specialist qualification in the world."

Lanette is one of the top Pilates instructors in Australia and was invited to teach at the international Pilates conference in the USA. In 2011 she became a director of PilatesITC which is the leading Australian based Pilates specialist training organisation in Australia and has run Pilates Canberra for 24 years. She is in demand nationally for instructor sessions, mat classes and workshops.

"We teach Pilates in a Pilates specialist environment; we are not fitness people who have done a short add on Pilates course, we have studied the full Pilates approach which uses a structured program for each individual," Lanette said.

"Pure Pilates changes the way you move. The focus on awareness of your body and what is working as you move gives you a greater ability to recruit muscle fibres for efficient muscle sequencing that translates to more power, more energy and better performance.

"The Pilates studio sessions can provide strength and conditioning for all people of all ages and with varying conditions. The wonderful thing is that this sort of Pilates is suitable for a 91-year-old woman, a professional footballer in his early 20s, a prenatal woman as well as a person who sits at a desk for 10 hours a day and has never exercised.

"We teach and openly share our knowledge of Pilates to help improve the physical lives of our clients."

Pilates Canberra offer 60 minute private (one on one) sessions, duet (one on two) sessions and semi-private (one on four) sessions as well as 45 minute Reformer classes that are limited to six participants.
