Mindful matwork for every workplace
Established in 2017, Suzanne Pilates seeks to offer high quality and engaging mindful mat Pilates, Yoga and Barre classes in workplaces across Melbourne.
“Mindful Matwork” is our motto. Our classes focus on creating mindfulness through movement, breath work, progression and the enjoyment of physical activity. The practice of Pilates and other forms of mindful matwork can enhance employees’ mental health and wellbeing, concentration, focus and enhanced physical strength, resulting in enhanced workplace productivity and retention. Additionally, the practice of Pilates at work in group settings also improves staff members’ sense of community and belonging as this often fosters positive engagement between staff members who do not often interact.
Our classes are delivered in an interactive and welcoming environment and are suitable for all fitness levels, ages and genders. We welcome people who are completely new to Pilates, Yoga and Barre, right through to most experienced person. This makes our approach ideal for corporate clients, who often have staff members who have varying fitness levels and abilities. We see our clients progress from individuals who suffer from chronic workplace issues to individuals who feel stronger than ever.
With the ever-changing work environment due to the COVID 19 pandemic, Suzanne Pilates offers virtual and in person classes, with the ability to switch between both options. We are flexible and work with your schedule to offer classes before, during or after work hours with yourself as a client being able to select the time of day that best suits you to attend classes.
Our classes are run by qualified and experienced instructors who are passionate about supporting your staff to progress throughout each class. We limit our virtual classes up to 20 participants and 15 participants in a physical setting with the ability to provide a hybrid solution.

Having fallen in love with the Pilates method after years of practicing it and the many physical and mental health benefits that Pilates brought to my life, I undertook training to become a Qualified Pilates Instructor with The National Pilates Training Program.
When I’m not instructing classes I wear the hat of a Social Work Practitioner, utilising a strengths based, holistic approach to
address peoples support needs, working to improve their overall health and wellbeing.
Being very passionate about holistic health and wellbeing both personally and professionally, I definitely acknowledge the strong link that one’s wellbeing has on their physical health and vice versa.
By being fortunate to have the opportunity to wear both hats, I have a strong interest in working towards empowering people through teaching them tools to improve their health and wellbeing and reach their specific fitness goals in a fun and comfortable environment.
