Ask us about our private classes
Many people who are just getting started or have specific goals don’t want to join an exercise group. Instead, they want a personalised Pilates experience.
Tiaki private classes are the perfect way to benefit from the personal attention of a Pilates expert, allowing you to work with a range of additional Pilates equipment and focusing on your individual needs.
Private classes can be arranged for individuals, couples or small groups of up to three people (get the girls together to exercise!). Many of our clients book private clients to help them achieve personal goals, such as focusing on improving muscle control and strength after pregnancy and childbirth, increasing general fitness and mobility after retirement or as a social exercise event with friends.
In the private classes, you can experience the full range of Pilates equipment:
- Reformer machines
- Wunda chair
- Ladder barrel
- Mat and small props
Get moving safely and effectively
At Tiaki we know that you want to get moving (it might have been awhile). To get moving, you need to find an effective and safe form of exercise. And going to the gym is just not your thing. It can be frustrating not knowing where to begin if you’ve been away from exercise for too long or need a more effective way to get your fitness back.
Tiaki Pilates Classes
A strong foundation
Tiaki Pilates is a low-impact but effective form of weight-bearing exercise that involves strengthening and lengthening muscles.
Done in the manner taught by our instructors, our Pilates classes will allow you to achieve remarkable results without risking injury.
The exercises that you perform as part of the Tiaki Pilates classes help you strengthen both small and large muscles.
Many of the exercises you’ll enjoy in our sessions allow you to strengthen and control core muscles that are responsible for protecting against back pain, getting tummy muscles back and improving posture and breathing.
Pilates can be done on a mat, using a reformer machine or using other equipment. Using a reformer machine or other equipment helps support your body as you learn to coordinate how you move, build strength and improve mobility.
Helping reduce back pain, enhance tummy muscles and get you back to enjoying life.

Frequently Asked Questions
It’s much better to have control than strength. Many people have heard of Pilates in the context of back pain or improving core strength.
Our ‘core’ is the abdominal (tummy), pelvis, hip and lower back muscles that support our spine. Rather than building core strength, Pilates actually helps you use the correct muscles to have better control over how you hold yourself. And this control can help protect your back, reduce back pain, improve posture and help tummy muscles.
Better control and strength can help improve sports performance as well as daily activities.
Pilates is a low-impact exercise perfect for getting back into exercise again, recovering from injury or childbirth, or when you’re trying to keep active as you get older. Rather than building strength, Pilates focuses on how you move and coordinate your muscles to move, and teaches you how to do it right.
The exercises we teach at Tiaki Pilates help you use big and small muscles to give you complete control over your movement. The equipment and reformer machines we use in some of our Pilates classes make learning Pilates easier.
The equipment can seem overwhelming at first, but with the guidance of our expert instructors, you’ll soon experience how easy Pilates exercises can be to learn and enjoy.
Regular Pilates classes will help you increase muscular strength, endurance and mobility, improve posture and breathing, and reduce injury risk. Making it the perfect form of exercise if you’ve been slowing down, not exercised for a while or want to get tummy muscles back after pregnancy and childbirth.
Everyone who is new to the studio has an introductory session where we find out about you, your movement or body concerns, previous injuries, level of experience and what your goals are.
We then take you through a Pilates session so you can see what it’s like.
We don’t focus on weight loss. We focus on sustainable regular exercise with the aim to strengthen your whole body, improve mobility and improve how you move.
We encourage you to create long term habits and enjoy your time at Tiaki so that you are more likely to make it a lifetime habit. If you exercise regularly you’re less likely to suffer pain and dysfunction.
