Advice / Culture

TMRPILATES is dedicated to the craft of the method and to the wellbeing of our clients.

Studio Culture

We opened our doors in 2017 to showcase the Classical (original) Pilates method and offer brilliant training opportunities to every day people as well as train the next generation of Pilates teachers. The TMR client is interested in learning about their body, how to move it intelligently, to be healthy at any age. 

Studio cancellation policy : 24 hours for all sessions

Observe studio etiquette: Shoes off, socks on, phones off, no zippers on activewear, clean up after every session

Chewing gum and body odour are not welcome!

We ask you to arrive at least five minutes prior to the class to ensure you are set up and ready. The front door will be locked five minutes after your class commences and latecomers will not be admitted.

We are a tiny studio and only have room for clients who are able to train within our community guidelines. Twice a week (minimum) and attend 80% of regular bookings. We have a late cancellation policy and a latecomers policy. We may appear strict, but we are just quality-oriented and love old-school manners in shared space. We will work diligently to support your wellbeing and offer you the best original Pilates experience in Melbourne. Oh, one last thing…. Zippers are evil and damage our equipment, please check your clothing before entering the studio.

Please think carefully before signing up to our courses and classes, it’s important to us that you come to the studio when the time is right and you have a clear run at dedicated training.

“Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness. Our interpretation of physical fitness is the attainment and maintenance of a uniformly developed body with a sound mind fully capable of naturally, easily, and satisfactorily performing our many and varied daily tasks with spontaneous zest and pleasure.”
