Mat Pilates in Park Orchard

Increase Your Core, Body
Strength and Overall Well-Being

Weds & Fridays, 9:15 am for 50 minutes

Strong Core

Eliminate Stiff Muscles



All Levels

As a big advocate of Pilates,
I want to make Pilates accessible to Everyone!

In Mat Pilates, we use your body weight to increase your core and body strength- improve flexibility, coordination, mobility and overall well-being. You can also expect to work on balance, breathing, and your pelvic floor. Mat Pilates targets the deep muscles surrounding your joints for a well-aligned body.

I will explain how to activate your deep core structures and pelvic floor correctly. You can safely strengthen your back and progress as your strength builds weekly. It’s never dull as I take pride in offering different movements to keep you motivated, but at the same time, I won’t have you doing the splits or backbends.

Don’t worry about keeping up, as the pace is adaptable to all. I work hard to make you feel welcome and comfortable in a larger group setting. You are not just a number; I am here to help you work towards your health goals. I guide all participants with verbal cues and will make adjustments or recommendations for individuals to make the most out of their session!

So Why Mat Pilates?

Join Our Growing Community

Join a growing community of like-minded people of all different ages who enjoy the benefits of exercising, socialising, and developing friendships. I find that once people start, they often stay for life as they know that if they don’t, the aches and pains creep in, and poor posture can develop!

Your Personal Trainer Mary Van Orsouw

Hi, I’m Mary Van Orsouw and I have a passion for working with individuals like you and building up your strength and feelings of wellbeing. It is important to me that your individual needs are being heard with regular feedback.

The Pilates that I offer is based on Traditional Pilates developed by Joseph Pilates. Joseph and I share the belief that the person who uses their intelligence with respect to their diet, sleeping and who exercises properly is taking the very best preventative medicines provided so freely & abundantly by nature.
