Pilates is a movement system developed over 70 years ago. Originally referred to as ‘the art of control’, it emphasises precise, concentrated and flowing body movements all designed to improve toning and flexibility – but not to add bulk.
Dynamic Pilates is one of New Zealand’s largest equipped pilates studios.
Based in city-end Karori, Wellington, Dynamic Pilates is led by Chantal O’Connor, a fully accredited Master of pilates with over 17 years’ classical pilates instruction experience.
At Dynamic Pilates, we practice classical pilates. Movements are fluid and at a pace, giving you a real workout as you transition from movement to movement.
The benefits of pilates are: strengthening, lengthening, toning, flexibility, posture and balance, injury prevention, rehabilitation, and post natal recovery.
Starting at Dynamic Pilates
Dynamic Pilates offers a broad range of group, semi-private and one-on-one classes in:
• Classical pilates (mat, reformer, tower and chair)
• Core, strength and stretch
• Cross training (including TRX)
• Personal training
We have dedicated mat and stretch classes for seniors (over age 60 years).
We can recommend classes to achieve your goals. We will work with you individually to suit your lifestyle and needs - regardless of your level of fitness, age, lifestyle, and existing or aged injury status.
Chantal is also an experienced teacher for those wanting to become pilates teachers. Refer to our "Teacher Training" page for more information.

The Powerhouse Café
The partner business, The Powerhouse Café, is attached to the studio and is led by Simon Mitchell, a personal trainer and qualified chef – the perfect combination for ensuring the food and drinks are delicious and healthy.
The café offers eat in and take-out food, coffee and drinks, and is a place for studio users to congregate before and after class, creating a sense of community and energy around the studio.
