The Body Refinery - 10 years of expertise

Originally named “Pilates Studio New Farm”, the business was established in 2003, earning a reputation for teaching high-quality, pure Pilates. In 2007, physiotherapist, Susan Cottrell, purchased the business, adding: physiotherapy, remedial massage and cutting-edge equipment. The Brisbane studio expanded into two larger premises to accommodate its growth and additional services.

In 2009 the Pilates studio was re-named to “The Body Refinery” to reflect its range of rehabilitation and exercise programs, including:

  • Physiotherapy
  • Pilates Classes
  • Remedial Massage

The Body Refinery is committed to being a centre of excellence in the areas of movement instruction and treatment. Our services complement one another to improve clients’ vitality, performance and overall wellbeing.

All of the staff at The Body Refinery share a passion for healthy movement. Our fully-accredited instructors undergo regular training to keep pace with the latest trends.

On your first visit, one of our physiotherapists will conduct an initial consultation and ultrasound assessment, to identify your physical needs, discuss your goals and aspirations.

We will then design an appropriate program that suits your requirements. All Pilates classes are taught by qualified instructors, who will ensure you follow your individual program whether in a one-on-one or group Pilates class. This ensures you perform all exercises correctly, safely and achieve the best results. Healthcare rebates are available, with conditions.

All the Body Refinery team are making ourselves accessible and flexible, so you can incorporate effective movement into your busy life.

We structured our Pilates classes to provide you with flexibility and accessibility, whilst keeping class sizes small to ensure we provide personalised movements and maintain the highest quality standards.

For every class, we recommend that you:

  • Wear comfortable clothing that allows freedom of movement
  • For your own comfort, do not eat heavily at least two hours before your session
  • Bring a towel, a pair of socks and a drink bottle

We encourage open and honest feedback so we can keep improving our service to clients. Please provide us with your valued feedback.

Please note that the Initial Consultation is compulsory for all new clients, regardless of experience.
