Mat Pilates

An exercise system synthesised primarily from gymnastics mat training, mat pilates (or Contrology, as it was originally known) was designed almost 100 years ago by Joseph Pilates to help the general population live healthier, longer, and more enriching lives.


We’re big fans of Joe’s original mission statement here at White Dog, so we teach our mat classes the way Joseph intended. From start to finish, you’ll be guided through the contrology repertoire by an experienced and deeply knowledgeable instructor. Joseph was a man of few words and clear, concise action. We honour his legacy.


White Dog currently offer one mat class style:


The Original Mat Pilates – ‘Is it worth it? Let me work it. I put my thing down, flip it, and reverse it’. In the immortal words of the Queen of Hip Hop Missy Elliot, get down on the mat and work it as you unleash the intensity and sweat your worries away. Taught exactly as Joseph intended from start to finish, hop into this class and let us find out how hard we’ve gotta work ya’. Think reformer is hard? Try those plank to pike sequences on mat and think again!
