Studio Sessions

Private sessions

This mode of training is our most versatile offering because it is centred around you and your needs. Completely customisable, scheduled seven days a week and available online through ZOOM or at our studio in Nicholson Street, Fitzroy North.

Semi-private sessions

To help you get the most from your practice and life we offer training in a shared private mode, with a maximum of three clients per class. Whether you are looking to gain a better understanding in certain movements, are recovering from an injury, living with a health condition or are pre/post-natal, the small group format allows for the personalised approach, without the price tag.

Group classes / Joe’s Gym

Client + authentic Pilates + TMRPILATES = success!
Greatness, like exercise is individual. Want to wake up without stiffness, beat a PB or just tone up and be healthy… greatness looks different in everyone but inspires confidence in us all. Choose from daily classes including a guided practice in our starter classes, specialised apparatus classes or our independent seasonal programmes like Joe’s Gym or the Purist Club.

New Clients

Check out our first steps package to get started at the studio. We ask all new clients to complete these initial private sessions so that we can not only meet your needs but prepare you for our unique programmes.

Group classes are not available for rehabilitation, injury management or during pregnancy beyond 16 weeks (Joe’s Gym excepted).

Private Sessions

All eyes are on you. Private sessions are a collaborative approach to find comfort, agility and excitement in your body using the traditional Pilates method. We’ll also use current concepts in exercise-science and movement education to boost your body and mind.

Depending on who you are and what you like, sessions can flow, be more programme oriented or mix it up based on your mood and daily goal.

In these sessions, there is no one else to compare yourself with. We challenge you to build on each session and grow with your teacher.

Private sessions are equally as beneficial for rehabilitation and sports performance enhancement and are often the best way to train if you have unique goals or are preparing for a Pilates teacher training programme.

Whatever the reason, we are here for you.


Semi-Private Sessions

Semi-private sessions are multi-purpose and available after you have completed your first steps package. Some clients will require additional private sessions to prepare them for the shared environment. Don’t be caught off guard if your teacher suggests this, we want the best for you. As experienced professionals, we know what happens when clients enter a semi-private class without all of the tools and we want to minimise any bumps in the road while under our care.

You’ll have access to a fully-equipped Pilates studio as well as a variety of teachers who are qualified comprehensively in the Pilates method (and beyond) who will act as you advocate and coach. You will share your time with up to three other clients and it’s your job to get the most out of your teacher, not the other way around.

This programme is ideal if you are post-rehabilitation, not quite ready for a group class or need a bit more time with each movement and like to move at your pace.

While Semi-private sessions are wonderful, they aren’t the final place for you in your movement journey. When you are ready, we may suggest additional or different forms of training with us. Our goal is to utilise the semi-private mode to equip you with information and exercises for strength and independence at home and at The Movement Refinery.

Where required the Pilates teacher can act as a case manager and liaise with your medical professionals to ensure you reach your short and long-term goals.

Group Classes

Please note our schedules are seasonal and subject to change

Join this programme once you have completed the first steps package and you are ready for a group class environment as indicated by your teacher.


A great place to start group training and also ideal for regular clients looking for a slower-paced class or a refresher of technical elements of the work, especially after an absence from the studio.

Get a work-out, get the detail of the Classical approach and learn to be responsible for how you use the authentic apparatus. This is a full-body work-out using the fundamental exercises of the Reformer that TMRPILATES clients love and love to hate.


A great place to start group training and also ideal for regular clients looking for a slower-paced class or a refresher of technical elements of the work, especially after an absence from the studio.

You’ll get to work on the Tower, the Mat and the Wunda Chair with an instructor who is there to guide your first steps into the world of Pilates, without cracking a whip. This will set you up to work in our classes that are faster-paced and eventually our Joe’s Gym (autonomous format).


Experience the Classical Reformer, it’s like nothing else! Join this class only when you’re ready and can recall the traditional movements.

The Reformer offers adaptable resistance, challenges your strength and balance and when done authentically, it is transformative. Our classes have no more than six clients per class so we can teach you the true work with care and precision.

In this class you’ll be taken through the signature series of Joe’s list (aka real Pilates) at a moderate pace. You’ll be guided as to how to operate the Reformer as part of your workout, learn the traditional movements and as you become more experienced, the linking exercises from one series to the next, we call them transitions!

Depending on the needs of the group, this class may be tailored to individual postural and movement concerns with the aim of a full-body work-out.


Once you’ve nailed the basics, diversify your training experience and feel better in your skin as the strength and mobility focus of this class will keep you on your toes in the Pilates playground.

A combination of Wunda chair, Barrels and Tower tailored to individual needs and is suitable for the experienced beginner through to the Pilates professional.

Add some spice to your Pilates schedule and enjoy the curved challenges of the barrel, the unforgiving yet rewarding Wunda and some spring time with the tower.

Depending on the needs of the group, this class may be tailored to individual postural and movement concerns with the aim of a full-body work-out.

Joe’s Gym

This group class is scheduled seasonally in honour of how the creator of the Pilates method (Joseph Pilates 1883– 1967) operated his gymnasiums in New York City. This style of training is ideal for those with a solid base at TMRPILATES or are experienced classical Pilates practitioners. 

In a specialised private session or two we will co-design a programme for you to work through in your sessions that will utilise multiple apparatus and offer variations for the days you feel a bit off, or when your super-powers have activated.

Your teacher will support you throughout your session, offer enhancements, modifications as needed but always plenty of encouragement and sass. 

Work at your pace and vibe. We guarantee that you’ll feel better when you leave.

The Purist Club

Join us for an authentic and powerful series of the 100% purist work of Joseph Pilates on most Saturdays in 2021. Invite only, this is an exciting opportunity to consolidate your work and punch up to the next level of your Pilates training. You’ll need to be up to the challenge, injury-free and have a solid base of Pilates sessions with TMR.

Purist Club Mat (55 mins) and Purist Club Reformer (75 mins), enquire within.
