A Balanced Life Studio

Your body is where you ultimately live, let us help you make it function with ease and sophistication

 ABL Studio is founded on authenticity and innovation.

Our classes are small and personal and we offer individual adaptations for everyone that needs that exclusive adjustment.

We marry our unique teaching techniques with the latest equipment to deliver sessions that will enhance your body’s strength, agility and overall performance. We use resistance equipment to strengthen and stretch the body to keep all of the exercises dynamic and unpredictable.

We are a lifestyle choice. If you want to enhance your wellbeing then we would love to help

From athlete and office worker, full time mum or housewife, sports enthusiasts, golfers, pre or post pregnant mums to those growing old gracefully, the ABL method is suitable for all.

ABL Studio will take your body further than you ever thought it could go. Our approach will challenge the strongest of men and support those seeking gentle recovery from an injury or surgery. We aim to stabilise the flexible, stretch the inflexible and tone all…

ABL welcomes anyone who wants to create a healthier and happier body to live in and love.

We are very proud of all our teachers, their commitment to learn and understand their chosen technique and how the body works has no boundaries. We all treat every client as an individual and give a personal approach to all our classes.

We understand that variety is the spice of life and that one glove doesn’t fit all. So we offer a personalised service, with support and challenges to get you where you want to be.

We have kept the traditional Pilates & Yoga techniques alive using all the equipment and mat work but we have also introduced the new more modern equipment and techniques such as Barre, Zen*Ga, Aerial and the new exciting balanced body MOTR’s which incorporates cardio to your Pilates workout

General Fitness

Pilates is for everyone

Attending a class at ABL we will work muscles you didn’t know you had. You will notice improved posture and alignment, firmer buttocks, a flatter stomach, long lean arms and legs. And this is just for starters.

Our Monthly variety pack entitles you to  6 classes a month which will include cardio, strengthening, flexibility, core conditioning and a lot of fun!

Before you make your choice, contact us for a free postural assessment and consultation and we can help you choose the right class for you.

Pre & Post Pregnancy


Pilates and Yoga is the go to exercise technique for Pre & Post natal

A completely unique and special time in a woman’s life, where she nurtures, births and bonds with her baby. It is only right that there is a special program for each of these stages.

We offer Pregnancy classes that prepare, strengthen and relax.

Post natal Mum and baby classes to restore, rebuild and bond

Healthy and nutritious diet plans to help you return back to your pre baby weight


No longer invincible… Let us help you restore the balance.

99% of the time injuries are caused by muscular imbalances and repetitive strain. The ABL method will strengthen your muscles the way nature intended, improving core strength, flexibility and mobility. At the end of the day you are only as young as your spine is flexible.

Phyiso’s/Osteo’s/Chiro’s and doctors all recommend Pilates for pain patients.

We have experience with a wide range of conditions so please contact us for your free consultation to find out more.

Sports Enhancement

From dancing to boxing to horse riding to golf, football to netball, running and swimming. The techniques ABL uses will release muscular limitations, stiffness, create greater power and make you perform with more endurance and agility.

We work with professional sports individuals and also those who enjoy their preferred sport at their leisure.

Our nutritionist is also on hand to provide you with the correct dietary needs you require.


Pilates is suitable and adaptable for any age

Our oldest client is currently 82. We adapt classes for those who might not be able to get up and down from the floor or just want to focus on specific areas that will keep them feeling mobile and active.

If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30 you are old. If it is completely flexible at 60 you are young! Joseph Pilates 1939

Movement for Children

As children grow, their bodies are in a constant state of change and development.

Correctly or incorrectly it is here where they will formulate the physical attributes that will carry them through life. Posture, the way they walk, the way they bend over,  

Pilates and Yoga can help establish correct principles of movement that children will use for their entire lives. It will also create a balanced musculature that can alleviate pain and reduce the potential for injury now and as they continue to grow into adulthood.

A strong trunk or core conserves their energy and allows them to be more attentive and grounded.
