I had a significant back injury in March this year – disc protrusion and numbness from lower back to toes inclusive of the outer side of my leg the whole way down. This led to months of Physio, hydro & remedial massage….after the initial ambulance ride and lots of meds, more than I have ever had! After clearance from my Physio and lots of emails back and forth I ventured to Gemma’s pilates class. In hindsight I was quite scared, as it had been a long road. Gemma was very patient with me and made modifications as I needed. The class has varied each week which has helped different parts of the body and kept me interested. I have not been sore after the classes and found I have had less aches and pains. I was still getting a lot of generalised back ache after being on my feet all day which has diminished almost completely. Thanks Gemma, I am loving your classes and feeling so much better for them!

I’d never felt comfortable enough to stick at anything prior to Sense of Space - I always felt intimidated by the ‘cool’ people and the austere vibe of places, or alienated by the teaching style, so after a class or two, I’d never go back. Sense of Space is the first place that I’ve been able to go where I feel that the teachers are genuine and kind, and even the clients are friendly and open. There’s nothing worse than feeling like you’re being judged (particularly when you are sweaty and gross and twisted into an unflattering pretzel shape!), but I’ve never ever felt uncomfortable or judged at Sense of Space and that’s one of the reasons that I love coming. You guys have done a beautiful job in maintaining an open, welcoming environment - coming to class really has become one of the highlights of my week :)

It has been fantastic for me! I used to have trouble with back & shoulder pain spending quite a lot of money on remedial massage to help relieve the pain, since I started I have had no troubles with my back & am looking fitter for the change! The teachers varied in their style and professional. Anytime I have had any troubles with admin a quick email & all is resolved. Sense of Space creates a lovely atmosphere anywhere, in which you can learn at your own pace.
I love walking into class, the feeling is warm and welcoming. I am greeted warmly by staff and other clients.
This is probably the first time I’ve actually stuck with a new class for longer than about 2 weeks - I’m really loving it. Your team of instructors are gorgeous and I’m noticing results already.
You’ll be stuck with me for a while i think :)
— Sally Adams
The classes have really improved my awareness of my body so I no longer hunch my shoulders! All of the instructors are very friendly and very good.
Friendly atmosphere which is void of competitiveness.
Clear professional directions from people who know what and how to direct a class.
Quality and depth of understanding of the body and all the extra options that the instructors give for when a person needs it.
I love Sense of Space!

Ill be definitely be back.

Expert tuition. I’ve been coming over for more than a year and I still learn something new every class. The team are very nurturing and encouraging and I’m inspired by their ongoing enthusiasm and commitment to making every class brilliant! My body and mind (and family) are benefiting from my time spent at SoS - thanks team!

Loved my first class! I felt very stretched and relaxed on my return to work afterwards. The instructor was gorgeous and her passion for her job shines through. I also liked that she didn’t make the ‘newbies’ feel out of place.

Really looking forward to the next class tomorrow.

I am still thoroughly wrapped in the classes and they have been an enormous benefit to me and my long suffering lower back issues . My flexibility has improved considerably .
Before Pilates I would attend a Chiro about once a week just to help with the lower back .I have not attended the Chiro for months now despite living a full on active lifestyle with a lot of active sport ,boating etc .

I’ve been to lots of Pilates classes here and while we were living overseas and my favourite teachers have always been from Sense of Space. Since moving home to Perth recently I have been living in Southern River and drive 30+ mins to get to classes. I think my family thinks I’m nuts since there’s a Pilates studio around the corner from home! It’s worth it though.

I am really loving our Corporate Yoga classes from Sense of Space. They are some of the best yoga classes I have done and I come away feeling relaxed and peaceful but also like I have really worked. I can definitely feel myself gaining strength and more flexibility.
I am loving the classes and have been more times in the last week than I had been to my gym in the last two months :)

If you have a customer service survey please let me know - you’ve been so helpful and great dealing with all my emails over the last 2 weeks! I’ve spread the good word of your studio to my friends and should have a friend coming with me Thursday morning!

I am now relocating to Melbourne in late January. I would like to let you know though that I absolutely love the studio and I’m disappointed I didn’t find you sooner! I have had the best experience so far and you have done such a great job with the set up, I love how clean and organised everything is (I am on o.c.d freak) the classes always run so smoothly and the teachers are so experienced and friendly. I have recommended you to a few of my clients so I hope they come and try you out as I’ve tried a lot of studios in Perth and your is by far one of my favourites.

Thanks again

Staff are able to cater for different ability levels, and having recently had an operation, coming back the staff are able to direct me to be kind to my post op body ability.
I have been meaning to write to the manager and let them know how truly wonderful your staff are. Special mention to Martina and Leonie - I am always thoroughly impressed with how much effort they put in to making each class so different from the last. Each and every week is carefully structured which keeps it fresh and exciting to come along each week. The attention they put into monitoring how every member is performing in the class, and correcting technique where needed, is so impressive and much appreciated also. Whilst there can be a mix of ability in each class, I always feel each person is given the chance to maximise their ability on their own level. Aside from the class structure, these two ladies make such a positive environment to come to. I look forward to attending their classes not only because of the physical benefits but the positive vibe I am guaranteed to experience whilst I’m there. It is truly both a physical and mental health experience, and has helped be greatly to balance my heavy study load with looking after myself, thank you all!

I am very much enjoying the classes and easing into it. The classes are great and staff are lovely.

I’ve tried many pilates and yoga studios but Sense of Space is outstanding. All the teachers are highly professional, inspiring and friendly. I’ve found what I was looking for at last!
— Anu B
I was coming to you guys for a few years before I moved over to Como. After trying several Pilates studios and eventually not going to formal classes anymore, I injured my back cycling too far up hills last week...I started back with you guys again last week, and you are even more organised than ever. So good and so professional.
I had my first class back with the lovely Leonie. Brilliant class. I felt so much better already.
Looking forward to feeling great again.
Thank you.
— Lisa Kleidon
I started pilates with Sense of Space 5 years ago when I was recovering from a serious accident and in pain most days. Since then I have grown stronger, more aware of my body and free of pain thanks to what I have learnt there. I love that each week I still see the same teachers I’ve had from the beginning (Martina and Leonie) and that they know my strengths and weaknesses. I love the friendly family atmosphere that Gemma has created so that people genuinely care about each other... Good for mind and body.
— Nicole Barbarich
Fantastic instructors, really good quality teachings, flowing classes. it’s a class above the rest.
Really like the friendly attitude you guys have, very client focused and it is obvious you care about the business and your clients.
2014 - Just to let you know that our first week has been great and we’ve managed five classes, so feeling very happy! All the teachers have been great and we’re really enjoying ourselves. Starting to feel the benefits already which is a surprise.

2015 - Happy that we’re all set to go for another year. Thanks so much and to Sense of Space for creating such a wonderful and great teachers – we are loving it!
— Melanie Bettenay
I have loved the classes so far!
— Ella Burke
Since I started coming to Sense of Space I have grown much stronger and my back pain, which was constant, now hardly bothers me. I love Sense of Space and Pilates and I tell everyone that it is wonderful...!
I love sense of space, not only great classes with brilliant instructors but a very good personal service too.
