I’m a beginner. Where do I start?
Welcome! If you would like to try all our classes, especially our pilates, the best way is with our Total Pilates Pack ($149) which includes 1 x 45 minute private and 4 x any group classes. A private session is required before attending our reformer classes if you don’t have prior experience. Even if you’ve done some pilates before, this pack is really recommended as you can learn a lot in the private session and it is great value!
New comers who have done Pilates before may also like our 10 Days Consecutive Unlimited All Classes offer ($59). View all our pricing and purchase here.
What should I wear and bring?
Please wear comfortable exercise clothing. For hygiene reasons, socks are compulsory for hygiene in all classes except TRX and Boxilates where you must wear sneakers. We recommend grippy socks which we sell at reception for $20. If you are taking a Boxilates class, we also require you to purchase and wear either inner gloves for hygiene ($10) or wraps ($20) which also support weak wrists. All other equipment is supplied including mats.
How do I find the studio?
We are located in the Cottesloe Central Shopping Centre, corner Leake St and Stirling Hwy. It’s the big shopping centre across the highway from Napoleon Street. We’re upstairs from Woolworths and next to Goodlife Gym and have ample free parking on site.
I’m pregnant. Is it okay to attend classes at Pure Moves?
Definitely! It is essential that you complete a one-on-one session prior to attending our classes, even if you have been coming before and then 1 private each trimester after that (our Pregnancy Private Special is the best way to do this – 3 x 45 min privates for $199). This is to be assessed as safe to attend our group classes as well as learn essential modifications for your body. The general group classes you’ll be suitable to attend are pilates reformer as well as Barre if you’re feeling more energetic. You’ll also need to complete a prenatal waiver and remind our instructors you are pregnant prior to class. Our classes are a fantastic way to prepare for labour and keep you strong and toned throughout your pregnancy, making it easier for you to regain your shape once bub is born.
When you’re ready to come back to classes (we recommend a minimum of 10 weeks postpartum), book in a private so that we can assess how your body is recovering and recommend the most suitable classes to get back into it.

How many times a week should I come?
Three is the magic number, (and four or more is even better!) to get good results from our classes, but if you are doing other exercise then one or two should be fine to complement your existing routine.
How do I book a class?
Bookings are required for all classes and can be made via our free iPhone app, or online here. If you are not tech savvy you can always phone the studio to book on 61617591.
What happens if I book a class and can no longer attend?
We have a 4 hour cancellation policy for group classes and 24 hour policy for private lessons. If you ‘no-show’ or cancel within this time, you will be charged for the session as it often means another client could have attended. Clients on an unlimited membership who ‘no-show’ or late cancel more than twice per month will be charged a $10 penalty fee as a deterrent.
I have/had a past injury, niggles, aches and pains
Please always let the instructor know at the beginning of class if there are any issues, even if they know about your injury, if it is not feeling good that day. Let the instructor know if you have a past injury, have had surgery or if there is an area or exercise you need to avoid. They will make sure to give you alternatives during the class. If you have had an acute injury or have had surgery we recommend booking a private session before attending group classes.
Is there studio etiquette?
We do not accept clients who arrive more than 10 minutes late. If you need to leave a class early, please notify your instructor prior to class. No glass water bottles in the classes as broken glass is a hazard. Please wipe down mats, reformers and all equipment at the end of class. Socks are a must for hygiene. Please turn your phone on silent (not vibrate) and do not bring any valuables into the studio as we cannot take responsibility for lost items.
