“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.”
