|Established in 1996, the Pilates Body Studio is the first Pilates studio to open its doors in New Zealand.
Maree Seerden, founder of the Studio, has been a devotee to the technique for 28 years; she started teaching Pilates based exercises in 1992 in London at the famous Body Control studios in South Kensington under the auspices of Gordon Thomson.
As Pilates has grown in popularity, the Pilates Body Studio now receives referrals from health and medical professionals from around New Zealand . Maree also lectures and presents workshops on the Pilates method to various medical and health organisations on an ongoing basis, and has presented classes at international conferences.
Maree Seerden makes multiple overseas trips annually to further increase her knowledge of Pilates and trains with masters from all around the world. She always comes back inspired and motivated and shares her new ideas with staff and clients.
