We care about what we do and how we do it. We go above and beyond to deliver tangible health solutions because we genuinely care about our clients. That means we observe; we listen; we understand; we help. For us, it’s about people before processes, being empathetic to deliver personalised care.
1st November 2021, as Melbournians were navigating their way out of almost 3 months of lockdown, Return Pilates opened its doors. Founders Kat and Mark saw the need for a place where people of all fitness levels could come and safely start their wellness journey, particularly after spending the better part of 9 months in lockdown over the 18 months prior. We set out to create a premium Pilates studio experience with an approach grounded by evidence-based practice, welcoming vibes, and a vibrant community ready to support and uplift each other.
Return was born from their combined professional backgrounds and individual experiences with Pilates. Wanting to create a service that bridged the gap between Clinical and Group Reformer Pilates and truly cater for everyone throughout their Pilates journey, right from the beginning.
If there's anyone who understands the challenges of juggling a fast-paced life, it's them. Married with three young children, they bring 30+ years of combined experience in the healthcare industry to create a dynamic edge to Return. Mark's background as Principal Physiotherapist and founder of Malvern Physiotherapy Clinic led him to adopt Pilates as a cornerstone of his practice. While Kat's background as a Neonatal Intensive Care and Retrieval Nurse led to her love of Pilates after sustaining a back injury early in her career. Their unique blend of skills, passion, commitment and care fuels the spirit of Return Pilates, creating a sanctuary for growth, transformation and achievement.
At Return, we weave innovative thinking into the very fabric of our culture. Along with our exceptional team, we prioritise the critical trifecta of care, movement, and connection to bring about lasting change. Through our carefully crafted classes and knowledge sharing, we empower our clients to tune into their bodies, build strength, and enhance their lives. Return Pilates is a transformative community that prioritises regenerative strength and meaningful connections, empowering everyone who steps through our door.
