Although this Morningside spot looks like other pilates studios, what makes it special is the owner. Alex may have ditched her nursing studies to become a pilates instructor, but she retained that special, super-friendly personality all nurses have, and she lavishes that attention and care on her students. We weren’t that confident when we showed up one Saturday morning, but Alex was supportive and very understanding of injuries and health issues, and assisted students in a way that didn’t embarrass anyone. She even recommended a post-practice brunch spot. On the go? There’s an online program for travellers (or those that just can’t haul their butt into class).

After having my son I really struggled to get rid of my Mum bod… I couldn’t get into the swing of an exercise regime or felt part of an inclusive exercise community. I found Duo Pilate and have never looked back. After almost a year I am literally a new person. I feel great, have got my body back and most importantly feel like I’m part of a fun, friendly and supportive family. I love every class I do at Duo Pilates and cant say anough positive things about Alex, she takes care of every person and takes into account everyone’s weaknesses and needs. I do personal sessions and classes and have found a new lease on life. Best studio ever.
Duo Pilates is a cool little studio with a great community feel. It really does feel like a little family when you attend these classes.
The instructors Alex and Leila are both super friendly with challenging classes. They are both super supportive and encouraging for participants of every experience level.
All round amazing experience!!
About 6 months ago a friend recommended Duo Pilates and I’m hooked! I’m so excited I’ve found something that has helped me get stronger and tone my body but I love as well! Alex is extremely focused on helping clients learn correct alignment to strengthen, improve flexibility and posture. Her classes are very effective but fun as well, you will look and feel great! Amazing atmosphere with a really friendly, supportive crowd. Highly recommended…absolutely love this place!
I’ve been a lover of Pilates for over 10 years & after having had a break for a few years I was recommended to give Alex & Duo a try. So glad I did! Alex’s passion for Pilates is evident through her professional & supportive nature & her knowledge & expertise is second to none.
My teenage son started Pilates with Alex less than a year ago after a rowing injury left him in a great deal of pain. He is now enjoying living an energetic & pain free life & he looks forward to his weekly sessions with Alex. Check out Duo Pilates! You won’t be disappointed!!
Great little studio and really quality workouts! Instructors are very good, positive and encouraging in group classes. Private classes are brilliant and tailored to your needs in a very considered way. Highly recommend!
I was looking for something different to do rather than the never ending grind of going to the gym. I had never done Pilates before but found Duo’s start up offer of $79 for a month unlimited and thought I would give it a try, nothing ventured nothing gained yeah? Alex was very patient with me and thoroughly explained everything as we did it, so now like everyone else I am hooked! Leila the other instructor is also fantastic and they work together to give the most amazing classes. There is also yoga with the incredible Lenell which I have also started doing much to my surprise. Can’t rave enough about this studio.
The Duo Pilates studio is a warm and friendly space and the perfect escape from our busy schedules! Alex is a fantastic instructor who takes the time to get to know everyone individually and caters to everyone’s needs. She will personalise classes to suit the feel of the day and makes sure that everyone gets equal attention so that you always leave feeling accomplished and proud of your progression. Couldn’t recommend highly enough! If you’re a beginner or an expert – get on board! You won’t reget it (until you’re doing the 100’s abs workout ). X
My husband and I, both 60 somethings, found Alex and Duo Pilates through a family member. It was the best things we have ever done for our health by going to sessions twice a week with Alex. I have surprised even myself, by looking forward to every session. The benefits have been huge and we are now compete converts to Pilates. Can’t thank Alex enough.
