For some funny reason, everyone’s a yoga-lover OR a Pilates-preacher. Or worst case, neither. Gasp!
We’ve already taken a spin at rounding up some of the best yoga studios on the Sunshine Coast but we think it’s time to cross the divide and hunt down where you can experience the best Pilates classes.
If you’ve shunned Pilates because your posture is perfect, you’ve no aches and pains, like ever, and you don’t need to look any more toned, then aren’t you lucky. But if like us, you’re already hopelessly addicted to Pilates core-strengthening prowess OR you’re yet to experience it, then it could be the time to hit one of our picks for the best Pilates studios on the Sunshine Coast.
Here at The Urban List HQ we know a good thing when we see, eat, drink, try it.
Kinected Pilates Studio
And Kinected Pilates Studio in Peregian Beach is no exception. Run by Amanda Erlank, this boutique studio is our pick for small (capped at six people), personalised mat classes where constant support and explanations on each movement throughout the lesson is a given. If reformer Pilates is your thang, Kinected offers private, duet or trip sessions on state-of-the-art equipment, so grab a buddy and be prepared to be stretched.
This Nambour studio is the kingpin among Pilates circles. You want Pilates reformer? They’ve got it. A mat class? That too. Extend Barre? Tick! Point taken? Basically, Oxygen Pilates dishes up different class after different class, so you can find your perfect Pilates fit. Doesn’t that sound nice? First-timers to the studio get a special intro one-on-one session for free, so you don’t gotta spend up big to see if this Pilates will become a weekly mainstay in your (cough, non-existent) exercise routine.
One of the best Pilates studios on the Sunshine Coast, SS Pilates in Maroochydore is a firm fave. With a super friendly team at the ready to guide you through unfamiliar movements, you’ll be pushed not to notice a difference within five to 10 classes. Before long you’ll be touchin’ them toes and holding a plank way past your usual 10-second limit. Already a reformer whizz or a mat guru, and wanna shake things up? We might be able to help you out with that. And by “we”, we mean, SS Pilates, with their Barre Attack classes. It sounds tough, ‘cause it is!
When it comes to the best Pilates studios on the Sunshine Coast, you really can’t go past Pure Pilates. This Sunshine Beach studio boasts expert instructors that will hit you with a body-toning workout for all those hard to reach places. Coupled with an Osteopathy clinic, if an old injury is something you’ve suffered with since, forever, then this is your one-stop shop.
First thing’s first—if you’re an interiors nerd and wish your life only comprised of moments spent in beautiful spaces, then keep reading. Secondly, and probably more importantly, if you’re on the hunt for a killer yoga and Pilates studio at the northern end of the Sunshine Coast, one step inside Noosa Flow and you’ll go straight to wellness heaven. Split into two wings, this Insta-worthy Pilates studio offers reformer classes on Balanced Body’s fancy schmancy Allegro machines in one room, and mat and yoga classes in the other.
Opening earlier in 2017, the gorgeous CGM Pilates in Maroochydore offers handfuls of classes daily, for all skill levels. From reformer to mat and Barre, private and group, we totally recommend nabbing an introductory pass which will give you five classes for as little as $55.
