“I had an issue with breathing for around 18 months, finding it hard to draw a deep breath; I had been to see 2 high-level sports physicians, countless physios and a breathing specialist at the hospital. My wife booked into see Allan for a pregnancy Pilates session and I thought I would give it a shot….nothing else had worked. Within 6 months, Allan had managed to assess, diagnose and treat the issue, which was a postural and muscular tightness problem. I see Allan once-to-twice a week and now I can not only breathe more freely but am back playing soccer and living a happy life again!!! The man is a genius!!

We are also specialists in assisting in the rehabilitation of back, knee, shoulder, hip and other problems and have been doing this since 1986.

  • joint problems
  • neck strain
  • scoliosis for youths and adults
  • rehabilitation before and after surgery
  • workers compensation cases (separate program, not the one listed below. Call for more information)

The MENEZES METHOD is vastly different to regular pilates in many respects –
e.g. We use the B-Line(R) not ‘navel to spine’, Stable Spine(TM) (as opposed to Neutral Spine), The Performer(R) – a new concept in rotational movement using the Pilates reformer, with movements based on the Art of Contrology(R).

Our Goal – is to combine our expertise and vast experience to produce RESULTS, giving you and effective ‘whole body’ for better quality of life. We believe that every exercise must have a functional purpose. If it doesn’t – we don’t teach it! Based on Joseph Pilates concepts of Contrology, we aim to improve you movement and , thereby, your mental control over what you are capable of achieving.

How long should you attend?

After your initial consultation, we recommend that you attend 2 to 3 times a week for 2-3 months in order to gain the most benefit and see, and feel, the changes!  If we can get you 20% better in 6 months, this is usually more than others have achieved. We usually exceed this target!
