Small group ( equipment classes)

Rehab clients ( 1-1)

Mums and bubs classes

And soon to be added will be our new pregnancy Pilates classes and children’s Pilates


2. What are some customer questions that you get?

What is Pilates?

Pilates, pioneered by the late Joseph Pilates, is a mind-body exercise system designed to strengthen the weak and challenge the strong.  Pilates has many benefits from strengthening and lengthening the spine to toning and strengthening the complete body. The best core workout you will ever get.  You will be sure to feel amazing after our Pilates sessions, leaving you feeling completely  refreshed and energised for your day.  Pilates is a low impact exercise programme where we can use springs to both challenge and help with the exercises.  No matter what your Pilates history is, age or ability you will find that you will fall in Love with the Pilates method from the very first session.


3. What do you love about your local community?

My family and I moved to Aura 2 years ago and fell in love with the community feel straight away.  We love the kids being able to cycle to the school and local parks, we feel very safe within the community.  Being a health cautious business, we love that Stockland try hard to promote this lifestyle to everyone.


4. With regards to your store, what new trends are you seeing?

With regards to COVID 19 hitting the community hard I am loving the fact that our community are really go out of their way to help the local retailers.  We really value their community spirit in choosing a local business over another similar one in a different town.  Keep up the good work Aura.


5. What motivates you?

I love seeing the changes that we can make to a client's life.  It is truly unbelievable what Pilates can do for your body.  We have had people come into the studio in severe pain and after only a few lessons watch them skip out.  It’s a magical experience.


6. What three words describe your store?

Community spirit, friendly, caring
