About The Perth Pilates Studio

The Perth Pilates Studio opened in April 2001 and is a fully equipped studio offering private & semi-private Pilates, group Pilates mat & reformer, Power Plate and barre classes.

Studio founder Elizabeth Wilson began practising Pilates since 1993 and is one of Perth's most highly trained and experienced Pilates practitioners. In addition to teaching at the studio, she is a senior educator for Polestar Pilates, an internationally recognized Pilates teacher training organisation, and a master trainer for Barre 2.0, one of the most comprehensive barre teacher training programs available worldwide. The Perth Pilates Studio is also the host site for Polestar Pilates & Barre 2.0 teacher training in Western Australia.

In 2019 Elizabeth passed ownership of The Perth Pilates Studio to current Studio Director, Duilia van der Merwe. The studio continues to grow rapidly under Duilia's expert direction while Elizabeth has been freed up to focus on her teacher training commitments. Today, Duilia and Elizabeth work closely together to ensure the studio continues to set the highest possible standards for Pilates instruction in Perth. 

We pride ourselves on the fact that most Pilates instructors in Perth have, at some time, come to train at The Perth Pilates Studio.

Studio teachers are all internationally certified through Polestar Pilates, one of the top Pilates teacher training organizations in the world. They are members of the Pilates Alliance of Australasia and actively pursue continuing education both within Australia and overseas.

For many years, our teachers have presented at workshops and conferences internationally and have taught continuing education programs for organizations such as the Australian Physiotherapy Association, Australian Pilates Method Association and the Pilates Alliance of Australasia.

Our studio was the pioneer behind most specialty Pilates classes now available in Perth including Pregnancy Pilates, Mums N Bubs Pilates, Pilates for Kids and Pilates for Cancer Rehabilitation. We also pioneered Barre classesin Perth.

Finally, the studio is better equipped than any other facility in WA, offering the complete range of Pilates apparatus available from Balanced Body. We are the true specialists in Pilates in WA...and, best of all, our instructors truly care about you and your progress! We pride ourselves on creating a positive, relaxed and motivating studio atmosphere.
