Group Classes


Balance & Control Pilates group classes are designed to provide an effective general workout. Our experienced instructors will lead the group through a sequence of exercises and show you modifications for any exercise to address your needs. Whether you are brand new to Pilates or a keen enthusiast, these classes will challenge you.

If you currently do Studio/Rehab Pilates with us, group classes can be a great way to manage your progress and fit in that extra session a week to keep you on track with your health and wellbeing goals.

With a range of class formats running at our Prahran location, Balance and Control Pilates are ready to help you take your Pilates practise to the next level.

Mat Pilates is a full body workout on the mat! This class is suitable for all levels as it challenges the individual to work within their own body. Based on the key principles of traditional Pilates exercises – Alignment, Breathing and Centring – the class is progressive and will often include the use of small apparatus such as balls, therabands and magic circles. Class size is limited to a maximum of 10 to allow for personal attention.

Form & Flow is a dynamic class that is driven by the power of movement. Derived from principles of Pilates, yoga, barre and dance, Form & Flow is a fusion class that interchanges between moments of finding form in the body and then translating that into flowing movement sequences. By challenging the brain and body in this fluid yet functional setting, Form & Flow strikes an ideal balance between strength, coordination and endurance. [more info…]

The Form & Flow Gold class is specifically designed for our over 50’s clientele. Based on the principles of a Form & Flow class, Gold focuses on empowering movement at any age and offers modifications for those who perhaps need added support in their practice. Envisioned by one of our most experienced movement educators, Gold is an exciting class addition at Balance and Control.

Circuit Pilates combines your favourite exercises from each of our class formats to give you a full-bodied balanced workout. The 50 min circuit rotates between mat based Pilates, standing/balance work and reformer training. It challenges your body to work on different planes and in multiple directions. This full-bodied and faster paced approach will leave you feeling like you have done a workout! Classes are capped at 8 people.

Group classes are only held at our Prahran studios. Find all the classes in the timetables below.
