Articulate specialises in mat work pilates and therapeutic massage.

Ever done pilates? Possibly not like this! Pilates is a justly famous world-wide exercise system, but it is not only a set of exercises, it can be a way of thinking about and experiencing your own body. It will then become a path to recognising unhelpful habits, looking for efficient ways to move, and strengthening deep structural muscles to support vulnerable or overused areas.

The owner, Mia, began training in massage in 1995 and then later, working from within a pilates studio and experiencing first hand just how good the combination of massage and pilates can be, trained in the early 2000s as a mat work instructor and has offered both modalities since.

Mia specialises in small mat classes that enable every individual to receive all the attention they require. Each class follows a different plan, so you get to put aside everything but what is happening right there and then and concentrate on the directions. Your instructor will articulate all you need to do while you isolate different muscle groups to strengthen them, discover movement patterns you have fallen into and create new ones while you articulate all your joints after supplying support from core structures.

If you would like the complete attention of your instructor, individual pilates sessions are available.

Articulate is based in Room11, Level 1, The Trades Hall, 126 Vivian Street, Wellington 6011 where massage and individual pilates sessions are available along with classes of up to 9 people. This is a pleasant, open space with a seperate treatment room.

Feldenkraise classes are also run from within this space, but are seperate from Articulate. Just ask if you'd like more information.

You can hire the open studio space, a 7x6m carpeted area, for other use when available.
