One-on-one core strengthening sessions utilising pilates equipment are available with our physiotherapy team at Morphett Vale to develop personalised programs and ensure appropriate technique. Patients can then advance to unsupervised sessions that can be booked at any time during our opening hours.
Core strengthening improves flexibility, builds strength and develops control and endurance in the entire body, placing emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core, and improving coordination and balance. Our physiotherapists can modify different exercises as the body adapts to meet specific goals and needs.
Our core strengthening experts are offering group pilates classes via telehealth. These classes will flow through a series of dynamic floor exercises, aiming to improve:
- postural strength
- core control
- organisation of head, neck and shoulders
- hip stability and strength
- spinal alignment and mobility.
This can be tailored to the abilities and experience of each group.
Telehealth classes are $10 per person per session.
In-person group pilates will be offered upon the reopening of our Stepney Gym.
Please note: this service is not claimable under private health insurance.

Monday – Friday: 8:30am – 7:00pm
