Elevating Safety Standards in Pilates: A Commitment to Client Well-being

In an era where wellness pursuits are increasingly prevalent, Pilates stands out as a holistic exercise regimen celebrated for its ability to strengthen the body and promote healing. However, recent reports have cast a shadow on the industry, highlighting safety concerns stemming from underqualified Instructors and unregulated practices. Against this background, Sense of Power Pilates is taking this opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to prioritising client safety and upholding the highest standards of professionalism.

A recent investigative report by 7 News Australia on Feb 20, 2024, titled “Pilates experts with the warning on their own industry across Victoria,” sheds light on the challenges facing the Pilates industry. Instances of equipment failures, inadequate training, and unqualified instructors underscore the pressing need for greater regulation and accountability. Amidst these concerns, Sense of Power Pilates stands firm in its commitment to setting a new standard of safety and expertise.

At Sense of Power Pilates, safety is not just a priority; it’s a non-negotiable cornerstone of our studio. Each of our instructors holds a Diploma of Professional Pilates Instruction or equivalent qualification from esteemed Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) such as Pilates ITC. This rigorous training ensures that our Instructors possess the expertise and competence to guide clients safely through their Pilates journey, mitigating the risk of injury and promoting optimal outcomes.

Our dedication to excellence extends beyond initial qualification. We believe in the importance of continuous learning and professional development to stay at the forefront of industry advancements. Through regular workshops, seminars, and conferences, our Instructors remain abreast of the latest techniques, best practices, and injury prevention strategies. We invite readers to explore Our Team bios, where they’ll find a comprehensive list of continuing education courses each Instructor has attended to enhance their skills, knowledge, and specialisation with different client populations.

Central to our philosophy is the empowerment of our clients through education. We believe that informed clients are empowered clients, capable of making confident choices about their health and well-being. During each session, our Instructors take the time to educate clients on proper technique, equipment usage, and injury prevention strategies, fostering a culture of mindfulness and self-awareness.

Sense of Power Pilates proudly maintains active memberships with reputable industry associations such as the Pilates Association Australia (PAA) and AusActive. These affiliations underscore our commitment to upholding the highest standards of professionalism, ethics, and client care. By aligning with industry standards and best practices, we ensure that our clients receive safe, effective, and evidence-based Pilates instruction at all times.

As the Pilates industry grapples with safety concerns and calls for greater regulation, Sense of Power Pilates remains steadfast in its mission to prioritise client safety and deliver excellence in Pilates instruction. Through rigorous training, continuous learning, and a commitment to empowering our clients, we strive to set a new standard of safety and professionalism in the industry.
