Next level Pilates at Turning Tide

When you think of Pilates, you probably picture people bending and stretching on a floor mat. While that is definitely a form of Pilates, at Turning Tide we take it to the next level.

We are the only studio in the area that uses high quality Pilates Reformer machines and Pilates Studio equipment during our sessions.

That means you can build muscle and tone faster, all while receiving the nourishing benefits of breathing well, mental focus and exercise induced endorphins.

At Turning Tide Pilates we offer both small group classes and private one to one sessions.

All new clients need to take an initial Introduction and Assessment session so we can design your programme according to your goals and needs. We also discuss a plan and give you feedback on your likely timeline for progress.

What is Pilates?

The Pilates method is recognised worldwide as a life changing wellness and fitness method. If you regularly attend classes, you will see lots of positive changes in yourself - both physically and mentally.

Here at the beautiful Turning Tide Studio, we use the principles taught by Joe and Clara Pilates.

We teach specific rebalancing exercises and Pilates Mat sequences, utilising specialist Pilates Studio equipment to condition your entire body. We also teach healthy breathing practices used in the Pilates method to integrate your mind and body powerfully.

There are many benefits to practising Pilates:

  • Better posture and increased strength via correct spinal alignment and core stability
  • A stronger body with increased muscle strength and tone
  • Improved flexibility
  • Reduced risk of injury
  • Improved coordination and balance
  • Increased lung capacity and circulation
  • Feeling relaxed and invigorated
  • Improved concentration
  • A new sense of well-being
  • Stress management
  • A stronger connection between your body and your mind

What are Pilates Reformer and Studio Equipment Classes?

Pilates Reformer and studio equipment classes involve the use of exercise machines that incorporate Pilates exercise techniques and unique approach.

Basically, it means that we use modern, state of the art equipment to ensure you are achieving your fitness and wellbeing goals.

Reformer Pilates can help you to build muscle tone faster and feel stronger in less time than a standard mat class and accurately addresses your personal postural traits, weaknesses and imbalances. 

Who is Pilates For?

The great thing about Pilates is that it can be for anyone at any stage of life. So, it doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or an advanced student. It also doesn’t matter what your fitness level is or your body type.

We work with each of our students to ensure we are providing a health and wellbeing programme that is suited to your individual fitness goals.

Pilates is a powerful and yet low joint impact activity that challenges your body to be stronger through a combination of individually modified exercises and stretches to challenge everybody uniquely.

We offer classes in a number of different disciplines, including Pilates, Pregnancy Pilates, The Gyrokinesis® Method, and Yamuna Body Rolling. Classes are offered in person at our Titirangi studio or online via a live link with one of our teachers or pre-recorded sessions.

So, if you are ready to rebalance your mind, feel fitter, stronger and happier, then come on down and try us out.
