Pilates Hornsby Services 

Mindful Movement is a fully equipped Pilates studio located in Hornsby. Our goal is to help you move and feel better. We can tailor a program to suit your needs whether you are recovering from an injury, want to enhance your sports performance or just want to connect with your body, tone up and strengthen your core.

Modern life is so frantic that we can get caught up in our headspace and disconnect from our bodies. The only way we experience life is from within our body and this amazing structure is designed to move and interact with the world.  If we disconnect from our body, we diminish our experience of the world around us and lose our capacity to be `present’.

Pilates has been described as `mindfulness in movement’. It is a means to help bridge the gap between body and mind, and to enhance self-awareness. Pilates uses movement to allow the body to heal itself.  In the hands of an experienced and intuitive practitioner, it can facilitate a movement experience beyond expectation no matter what shape you are in.

If you have an injury or illness, a tailored Pilates program can help you move without pain and to overcome the fear of pain associated with movement.  This is an incredibly powerful experience as it restores your trust in your own body, and in yourself.

If you are just looking to strengthen your core and tone up, whether you are a novice or really fit, we have a Pilates class to suit you.

We specialise in programs for:

  • rehabilitation after injury (lower back pain, neck, shoulder, hip and knee issues)
  • medical problems (diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, arthritis, musculoskeletal conditions, MS, Parkinson’s disease, fibromyalgia)
  • women’s health issues (pelvic floor problems, pre- and post-natal health)
  • recovery and rehabilitation post surgery

At Mindful Movement we offer safe, effective and personalised Pilates which is closely supervised and guided by our highly qualified and accredited practitioners.

Why Choose Pilates?

Pilates leaves you feeling refreshed, energised and engaged. Pilates will help you to develop and enhance your:

  • abdominal and pelvic floor tone
  • core stability
  • spinal and joint mobility and stability
  • muscle strength and definition
  • posture and balance

Over time you will develop better body awareness and an enhanced connection between body and mind. It can even improve your sleep quality, mood and energy levels.
