How We Work

Central Pilates

Central Pilates Studio is a fully equipped boutique studio in Ultimo. Incorporating the six principles of Pilates – breath, centre, flow, concentration, control and precision – into each session, the focus is on injury prevention and functional movement. Our instructors come from diverse backgrounds catering to everyone of any age and fitness level. We specialise in rehabilitation, muscular and joint disfunction, chronic pain management, sport specific conditioning and general health and fitness. 

At Central Pilates, we aim to educate and empower through specific exercises by drawing awareness to the physical body and channelling that knowledge into everyday life and other forms of physical activity. 

We run group sessions with a maximum of four clients, privates, semi-privates and lunchtime mat classes.

When coming to the studio leave shoes at the door, wear comfortable clothing and for hygiene reasons, we ask that you wear fresh socks and bring a towel.

I started my Pilates practise at Central Pilates Studio after a back injury in 2016. Following an initial assessment, I commenced with very gentle exercises. My exercise program was continuously altered in line with training progress and increasing strength. There is rarely a time when I do the same exercise twice. This keeps things interesting and challenging for mind and body.I greatly appreciate the friendly and personal atmosphere in the studio with small class sizes compared to other studios. There is always something to laugh about or new to learn. As a result, time flies and the training doesn’t appear to be a chore. I strongly recommend Central Pilates Studio to everyone who wants to establish a Pilates practise or is on the lookout for a new studio. Dorothea, the owner, as well as the other instructors, are very knowledgeable and experienced. Also, the studio appears to be very well equipped and is conveniently located in close proximity to Central station.
Dorothea is a wonderful instructor and my fellow students are excellent company. I go every Thursday and I feel rejuvenated for the weekend. She has gradually ramped up my exercise, starting with recovery from a bike accident into building my strength and flexibility. Truly a transformative experience. Thank you
Going to this studio each week is more like going to de-stress with friends. The vibe is so welcoming and the instructors are all amazing
Great attention to detail and teaching that focuses clearly on your body and its strengths and capabilities. Very highly recommended.
Love my Thursday pilates classes, Dorothea is awesome and attentive!
Excellent instructors, equipment and vibe.
After visiting a number of Sydney Pilates studios I joined this studio about ten years ago. The group classes are a perfect balance of personalised attention (usually four to a class) and focussed individual programmes. The studio is very pleasant, location great, choice of times very good too. The clientele is a great mix of age and fitness; the instructors are excellent.
