Pilates in Victoria

At Aria Health and Wellness, we believe in a multidisciplinary approach to health care, offering chiropractic care, massage, and Pilates, a systematic form of movement developed by Joseph H. Pilates over 60 years ago. Designed to stretch, strengthen, and uniformly develop the body, it helps prevent future injury while reducing or alleviating chronic pain.

How We Help

Whether you’re a complete beginner or advanced in the world of Pilates, if you have a set of objectives and goals you want to achieve, we can help you get there. Our instructors are trained in the authentic method as originally designed by Joseph Pilates.

Pilates is a corrective exercise system created by Joseph Pilates using specifically designed
apparatus; these exercises focus on developing the core muscle groups, teaching us to move our limbs from a strong middle also known as our powerhouse or center. Aria is equipped with classical Pilates apparatus including Reformers, Mats, Cadillac, Chairs, Barrels and other smaller pieces. The equipment offers resistance to the body with springs and provides support while challenging the body’s control of movement. Pilates offers a full body workout and when practiced regularly will balance the body ‘s posture using concentration and coordination of the body’s muscles.

Joseph Pilates intended for his system of exercises to be called Contrology, today we call it
Pilates after the creator himself. He believed physical fitness was a prerequisite to happiness and with time you will learn how to acquire control of your own body. Classes and private lessons are taught in our movement studio.

Our Studio

Our street front studio is inclusive of all people, no matter what your level of physical ability might be. The movement studio is private and separate from our main clinic to provide privacy and an enhanced workout experience. We use Gratz and Contrology apparatus to be as authentic to the classical method as possible.

Benefits for All

Pilates is an excellent form of movement for all bodies of all ages and fitness levels. With consistent practice of the method, and learning proper breathing techniques, your work helps decompress the spine, increase circulation, promote new neuromuscular patterns, heighten body awareness, and increase coordination and endurance in the body.

There are many reasons why Pilates is a popular form of low-impact movement:

  • Improves balance, posture, strength and flexibility, and core strength
  • Helps those with mobility issues (walkers, wheelchairs)
  • Promotes lifestyle changes (poor posture, too much sitting)
  • Pre- and postnatal care
  • Rehab after injury or post-surgery, and helps with conditions like scoliosis
  • Complements cross-training with other sports
  • And more
