“Connecting and understanding my body has always been so important to me and this aligns with my professional beliefs in Occupational Therapy as well. Pilates has allowed me that mind-body connection and allowed me to honour my body and push myself to my limits and reach my fitness goals.
There is no better team I would rather be on this journey with than the Stretch Pilates team, they are knowledgeable, positive, vibey, enthusiastic, motivational, thoughtful, passionate, and encouraging instructors. I am always left with a feeling of wanting more! I have a beautiful, more holistic feeling in my body which allows me to stop and breathe as well as have control over my body in the most comfortable, supportive, fitting and happy Pilates studio.
I am definitely achieving that deeper relationship with myself on a mind-body connection level, a healing/therapeutic level as well as reaching my physical fitness goals.”

Occupational Therapist

I started at Stretch Pilates in Hillcrest to ease the chronic lower back ache I had after a slipped disc injury . My primary goal was to strengthen my core and flexibility so that I could do ” normal” things like bending down to dry my dog’s paws without hurting myself!
I confess to being very apprehensive and impressed upon Stefan that I was unfit from not exercising  enough and was frankly worried about aggravating  the backache.
Stefan was patient and encouraging, starting slowly and gradually helping me to build my confidence  and strength.  I grew to love my sessions and the ultimate proof that I had made the right decision was my orthopaedic’s comment last month  that my hip mobility and flexibility was greatly improved.
I have had the pleasure  of working with Jenna, (Stefan’s exceptionally knowledgeable  wife) , Rachelle – an equally experienced and hands on biokineticist) and Nicole ( a bubbly, energetic instructress) and all have contributed greatly to my progress.
Over and above being excellent  at his job as a Pilates instructor, Stefan’s ability to empathise and listen was a double win for me- fitness and therapy  in one! I couldn’t have asked for more.
Thank you to the Stretch Pilates Team.

I have been regularly attending stretch pilates since January 2022. I thoroughly enjoy all sessions .The team are great ( Jenna/Kate/ Bhavna). Recently I found myself struggling with back and neck pain . Jenna kindly interacted with my chiropractor and formulated a rehab program. She made me feel totally at ease, explaining every exercise expertly as well as liaising with Kate (who is my regular instructor),on all interventions. After every session with Kate my pain eases a lot .My core strength has improved along with balance & posture. I would thoroughly recommend Stretch Pilates . What an awesome team. Shout out to Kate on the back massage at end of each session. What a treat ❤️

Crisp & sunny today.

Do you struggle to find the motivation to get to gym?

Do you hate beating yourself up for not exercising?

Are you sick of spending time doing mind-numbing repetitions of the same boring exercises with little results?

Are you looking for exercise that is inspiring, fun and that actually works?

Then get excited because at Stretch Pilates you can quiet your inner critic, be kind to your body & get the results you are after.

Hi, my name is Stefan and I am the co-owner of Stretch Pilates. My wife (Jenna – the inspirer) & I opened Stretch Pilates a little over 5 years ago.

Over his time we have been fortunate to welcome thousands of people through our doors.

Changing many lives along the way.

Our unique approach to Pilates allows people like you to achieve amazing results.

This low-impact exercise engages your entire body for a stronger core, a leaner body & more flexibility in less time than you thought possible.

Nourish your body while achieving strength and flexibility without punishing your body in the process

bThere’s nothing worse than working out 4-5 times a week…and barely seeing ANY results at all.

Instead of being in less pain, losing weight, feeling mobile and better about yourself you just loose motivation each passing week.

This is why so many people go through life without getting the body they desire or worse…decide to live with their painful back, neck, knees & muscles “because that is just part of getting older”.

But all of this can be avoided by using a simple exercise regime developed by a German man (Joseph Pilates) while he was in a war camp during WW1.

Joseph Pilates created Contrology (now know as Pilates) & made his fellow inmates do his wild exercises daily. To everyones amazement at the time, the inmates were fitter and healthier after the war than before it started.

Now this revolutionary style of exercise has been adapted and packaged to suit a modern lifestyle and can be found just around the corner from you at a Stretch Pilates studio.

Consistent Pilates creates longer leaner muscles, more flexibility & a clearer mind.
