First Steps

Our programmes are designed to support your individual needs. We’re here to guide you through the true Pilates method.

New Clients

Thank you for your interest in joining The Movement Refinery. We know our work will help you feel comfortable in your skin, strong in your body and clear your mind and mood. Our services are unique and expectations of our clients, to be honest, are high. We aren’t for everyone so we would like to get to know more about you see if we can support your goals and wellbeing.

Starting Pilates as a new client with us is an individualised process depending on where you’ve been, what you’ve been through and where you want to go. You won’t automatically be ready for our group class programme and we prepare all new clients in the following way:

Start …

Complete the new client form below to register your interest in our ‘first steps package’ (two 55 minute private sessions – $200). We will return contact and discuss our availability and if our schedule has the availability you are after.


Be prepared for the fact that you may need extra private sessions (see pricing page for options) before joining our semi-private or group class programme. If you have clinical requirements or need additional coaching, this could be in the form of ongoing semi-private sessions.

We also offer ‘starter’ small group classes a couple of times per week for clients without postural conditions or injury. Your instructor will discuss this with you if it is an option for your best wellbeing.


Once you know the foundation classical exercises and sequences and how to be independent in class confidently, small group classes may be the cherry on top.

“I felt a bit lost in the Melbourne Pilates offering until I connected with classical Pilates through Nic and his teachers. At TMR I found real Pilates and real community. “

“Nic has created an inspiring, friendly environment at TMR; he’s a highly skilled teacher full of knowledge and encouragement.  It’s a joy to practice classical pilates there and I’m so much stronger and fitter for it. Highly recommend. “

“I can’t rave highly enough about you as a human, community builder, business person, pet-parent, friend and pilates guru.”
