At the Darshan Center you can find pilates-barre and yoga-pilates-barre classes to improve control, strength and body flexibility. Designed to increase agility and strength, classes are also good to relieve stress, addressing the body and mind as a whole. Darshan also offers a range of therapies such as osteopathy and acupuncture, and courses for those who wish to train as yoga and pilates teachers, or to be a practitioner of alternative therapies.


Ditoflow offers classes in pilates and yoga as well as offering alternative therapies. Located in the Plaça de Lesseps, Ditoflow has customised programmes for resolving ailments, injuries or simply to help people to get fit and live a more balanced life. On top of the individual and small group sessions, Ditoflow offers pregnancy pilates and machine pilates.

Having gathered specialists from around the world, Studio Australia offers a high-class service across many practices. The studio has a range of  pilates classes – regular, barre, pregnancy, face and body shaping – which are tailored to individual needs. The classes at Studio Australia are at the pricier end of the spectrum but they are well worth the investment.

If you are a fan of pilates and are looking for an informal way to practice, why not head to MeetUp to check out the many pilates groups operating across the city. Taking a MeetUp class is a great way to meet people while you practice your poses.
