Taube Pilates Testimonials

“Louise is an amazing teacher who combines being very knowledgeable and disciplined with lots of encouragement and support. She makes Pilates very accessible – I was a Pilates novice when I first came – and is so attuned to your progress to ensure you continue to be challenged. Every minute of a session is put to good use – and Louise makes your sessions count beyond the studio with help and support on exercises at home, posture, how to sit at work etc. My sessions are always so welcome – this is the best and nicest place to do Pilates in Melbourne!”

“Dear Louise, A big thank-you for being my pelvic floor conscience during my pregnancy. I have to say I think the Pilates I did really helped in labour, mentally and physically. I imagined opening up my pelvic floor like you had me working on, and I was able, although on an epidural, to push really effectively with awareness of my pelvic floor muscles. A big plus was no tearing!! The Pilates has also I think really helped with recovery.

Abbie Sherwood


“I participated in Louise Taube Studio Pilates course between July 2 and 24 Sept 2010 in which time the course covered a wide range of subject matters pertaining to structure, physiology, cueing and teaching in a studio environment. I have learned so much and gained a lot of deeper knowledge that will assist me greatly in my Pilates teaching. The course was well planned and put together. I also participated in Louise’s Ring and Roller workshop which was fantastic and where I met a future employer – so anything is possible! I would recommend Louise’s courses to anyone who wanted amore through and deeper understanding of teaching Pilates in a Studio environment.”

“I enjoy that the program is custom made to my needs. My neck, when working long hours at the computer is less sore, and I slouch less in the chair. I feel taller and have less pain. I can recommend it to other people with chronic pains. It makes a big difference.”

Simone Pakin

“During this pregnancy I have not experienced painful ‘growth pains’ or pain in the groin area. I will certainly keep this up and continue to enjoy Pilates after having my next child. The physical feeling is not one of ‘extreme exhaustion’ but rather one of quality muscle strengthening and improved flexibility. Highly recommended.”

Lauren Boale

“Creates harmony in the body. Pilates aids in strengthening and lengthening the muscles, helps understanding physical imbalances and the ways to correct them. I like the idea of Pilates because it involves both strengthening and stretching the body. I like the idea of having a lean and long body. At the same time Pilates allows you to have nice tone and flexibilit.”
