Encompass 1

The Encompass Power Tower assists with pure body resistance to strengthen the entire body. It mechanically adjusts the incline to the tastes of the individual to gain the best outcomes.


The Gyrotonic® Tower is an unusual piece of equipment that allows a diverse set of movements to mobilise, rotate and strengthen all muscles groups individually. First introduced to Australia by Allan Menezes in 1999.

We also help with:

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

Our Goal

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 your 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!
