Monday 14 January is when we re-open for the year.  Until then, enjoy your summer break!

Performance Pilates is a private, boutique studio located in the heart of Wellington's CBD, at 150 Featherston St. It is an airy space with bright, natural lighting and a secluded and relaxed atmosphere. The studio runs one class at a time, with limited numbers, to maximize client attention and feedback, making your lessons personal and comfortable. Our highly trained teachers provide individual pilates workouts to suit your needs, whether it is goal specific or for general health.

New to pilates?  Why not join our Beginner's Mat class, which starts on Wednesday Feb 13 at 5.15pm, and runs for seven weeks until Mar 27.  At $154 for the block, it's a great way to get acquainted with the basic technique of pilates in a safe and fun environment.  This class is also suitable for people who are older in age, with arthritis or back conditions.

  • Improved muscle tone, length and strength
  • A stronger centre and lower back stability
  • Greater flexibility, especially of the spine
  • Improved body awareness and postural alignment
  • Improved quality of movement and fine motor control

Client Testimonials

"I have been at Performance Pilates for several years and like the professional way the studio is run. Performance Pilates has made a huge difference to my physical well being, my posture has improved significantly and I have become more body aware. The classes are up to four people so the attention is very personal and friendly." - Rosemary, September 2016

“My relationship with Ellena Conland and Performance Pilates goes back over 10 years.  I've tried pilates in other settings and with a variety of instructors over the years but I've always found Ellena and her team to be the best.  They take great care to identify what my needs are and ensure that the exercises and equipment I use are tailored to meet those needs.  Whether it's in a mat class or a studio session I know I'll be guaranteed individual attention as I improve my strength, flexibility and body tone.  I always feel lighter and taller after a session there and I enjoy the company of the smaller groups and classes compared with larger providers.” Karen, August 2015
