As somebody who sits in front of a computer most of the day, I really value my Pilates sessions because they help me with core strength and flexibility. The location makes it possible to squeeze in lunch-time sessions and go back to work feeling refreshed and invigorated.

Studio Cirq is a state-of-the-art studio for Pilates, Yoga plus, plus. It is exceptionally well run (by the incomparable Lindsay van Niekerk ), catering to individual needs while remaining structured and organised. The premises are well designed and improvements are made continually; even the reception area music is well chosen! Most importantly, however, the professionalism and talent of the staff are top of the line. Pilates classes (my focus) are well paced and creative and there are lots of them to choose from. The dynamic yoga classes are also outstanding.

There are a lot of pretenders and wanna-bes out there, but few, if any, can match the standard set by Studio Cirq. I know that this sounds like a marketing brochure, but it's 100% true

I have had a few false starts with Pilates over the years but the Studio Cirq classes have been very effective for me. I have been going now for several years on a weekly basis. Class sizes are good and tuition great, both from the technical perspective and also for the fun factor.

I started pilates at Studio Cirq because they offered courses and lunchtime classes at better prices than anywhere else I could find. I keep coming back because the atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing, and the teachers are fantastic. It doesn't matter what class I turn up to, the teachers are all friendly, helpful, instructive and knowledgeable and always prepared to help and answer any question. It's a great place to be and it keeps me sane

The Pilates method of body conditioning is a system of stretching and strengthening exercises to strengthen muscles, improve posture and provide flexibility and balance.

The centre of the torso - stomach, hips, lower back and buttocks - is known as the powerhouse, and is the centre of energy for all Pilates exercises. The workout is designed to stabilise the torso and develop core stabilisation. All movements are initiated from two primary control centres: the lower abdominals and the mid-back muscles, strengthening the support muscles deep within the body. Benefits of practice include improved posture, greater flexibility, improved circulation, reduced stress and endurance.

We teach Mat Pilates using a variety of small props including the bolster, magic circle, theraband, pilates ball, thera-tubing and fitball. Joseph Pilates devised his method originally called Contrology to be performed lying on the floor (mat), this means the exercises can be done very effectively anywhere and without expensive equipment.
