Strength and agility are about more than just looking good. A strong body that moves well will help you squeeze every last drop out of life.  At Bodyneed we bring our expertise in massage therapy and physiotherapy into our pilates classes, shaping, molding and transforming bodies to move better than they ever have before.

"Bodyneed is where every Auckland athlete needs to be. The Pilates, recovery and movement classes should be an essential part of all training programs." Pip Meo; NZ Rep. Triathlete


Pilates is a low impact exercise form, perfect for every age, shape, and fitness level. Working alongside physios and massage therapists means many of our clients are coming through or dealing with injuries and our smaller classes mean we can provide more individual attention for specific needs.
Pilates exercises focus on improving core stability, strengthening your full body especially hips and abdominal muscles, improving breathing and flexibility while lengthening and releasing tension. This makes it the perfect exercise for men and women, expectant and new mothers, serious athletes, office workers and more.

Pilates for Runners


We have a range of classes designed to challenge you no matter what level you are at. From beginner level to advanced our expert trainers will modify the exercises to suit your ability or injury history. Smaller classes mean we can give you the attention required. Private Pilates appointments for injury recovery and targeted support are also available.

A pilates class with athletes in mind (open to all abilities); prevent injury, boost performance; strengthen, condition, stretch and build balance and coordination.

"I’ve been doing Pilates on an off for many years and for me the Bodyneed Total Athlete class offers the perfect balance between ‘strength’ and ‘stretch’. It is also great being with a bunch of like minded individuals who, along with the great teachers keep you motivated and inspired.  I’m not a serious competitor but do a lot of recreational activities including mountain biking, snowboarding and off-road running. This class really helps to develop balance and strength tip to toe.  I have also found that I’m not getting as many injuries which is great."
Leanne P. Mum, snowboarder, mountain biker, busy corporate
