Room For Movement is a friendly Pilates studio in the heart of Sydney’s Inner West. We are proud to welcome people of all ages, sizes, backgrounds and fitness levels into our studio, and into our community where we’re passionate about good movement, and feeling strong and able. For you, that might mean being able to climb the stairs with ease, finally being able to touch your toes, moving your body pre and post-nataly, or rebuilding strength after an injury. There are many other ways in which Pilates can help people to move and feel better so give us a bell and find out if we’re the right fit for you.

What our clients have to say...

  • Rach has restored my confidence in my body and my abilities.  I was a nervous client as I had a long standing back issue and she has patiently worked with me and gently encouraged me whilst supporting my recovery. I can't believe what has been possible in six short months.

  • My husband and I go to Rachael at Room For Movement as a duet together. It is great for us to be able to exercise together as well as accelerate our Pilates ability with the extra attention a duet class brings. We both love Rachael’s sessions because of the way she gets our bodies to move, stretch and strengthen but also the unique way i which her teaching encourages the mind body connection. She can get my body into challenging positions but does it in such a way that the hard work is over before I know it. I have held strength I did not think I would be able to, especially coming to the studio as a postnatal client. I would (and have) recommend Rachael and her team to anyone that is serious about getting rid of aches and pains, and strengthening the body in its entirety.

  • I'd never really 'got' Pilates before coming to this studio through a friend's recommendation. Rachael is a fantastic teacher - intuitive, warm, adaptable and creative. The studio space is friendly and non-intimidating. Highly recommend Room For Movement - your body (and soul) will thank you!

  • Rachael and her pilates studio are like a breath of fresh air that I look forward to every week. I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking for a pilates instructor with a love of pilates, care for patient wellbeing and a genuine interest in getting the most out of your body! Of all the pilates studios and instructors I have tried over the years, there is no one quite like Rachael.

  • I go weekly to a class with Pamela. Classes at Rook for Movement are by far the best Pilates classes I have ever been to. Previously I had classes with Rachael but after I took a long break, on my return, her classes were full. Pamela has not disappointed! I am really noticing the difference in myself, and even enjoy the classes.

  • Thank you beautiful Rachael, for your introduction to me of Pilates. Your patience, friendliness and kindness has been an added bonus. From the start with no experience and a lot of pain, I feel like I really have moved forward. Now I enjoy my time in the studio with you!

  • I can't speak highly enough about Room For Movement. I've attended many studios over the years but none compare to the quality of the instruction and the insights you learn about your body. The vibe is relaxed and the small classes ensure you get the most out of the hour.

  • Don’t think twice about doing Pilates at Room For Movement; Rachael really knows her stuff. Apart from being such a lovely and engaging human being, she is extremely knowledgeable, takes time to know my body, and knows exactly just how far to push me. Regardless of how I feel when I walk into the studio, I walk away on air and that’s priceless. I can’t wait for my Pilates session every week!
