What Kia Kaha is truly about

A Māori phrase that means “Be Strong”. Our team believes strength comes from within and covers spiritual (heart), mental (mind) and physical (body) states. Kia Kaha Studios aims to assist people through the journey of finding their strength in order to continuously develop self-confidence, well-being and a healthy body. We provide exercise programs that focus on activating a variety of muscle groups and work to strengthen and lengthen the spine so that you can stand taller and improve your flexibility, balance and body awareness. We understand that everybody is different and we believe that we should aim to be the best we can. With that in mind, we will always encourage you to challenge your limits but also understand your body, keep focused on technique and go at your own pace.

Pilates is about learning to use your body better. By using a Reformer you can strengthen, stabilise, and address all those niggly issues that we just end up assuming are our normal. Feel stronger, taller and more physically capable with every class.


Burn calories, increase your agility and general fitness. Suitable for any fitness level and focussing on bursts of activity followed by rest. You get to choose your pace and level.


Rest and flexibility are integral parts of your physical training. You get this and more. If pilates is about knowing your body better, then yoga is about knowing yourself better.

Mindful Yoga is a relaxing practise to balance the nervous system and re-energise the whole body.

A brilliant Pilates studio with friendly and very knowledgeable staff who know how to personally motivate and guide... each student. The results find you with gradually and significantly increased physical and mental balance and strength. As a student, you emerge motivated to keep the practice up from here on out. On top of it all you feel part of a community, which is priceless. Kia Kaha!read more

I started pilates at Kia Kaha 3 weeks ago. I have to say that it has literally changed my life. I have so many... injuries, yet they are healing and I have not picked up any more thanks to the amazing instructors at Kia Kaha. It has changed me mentally and physically, I admit that I do not have a six pack after 3 weeks, but Rome wasn't built that quickly! Thank you Kia more

Whether you are a first timer or experienced this will be the best studio everrrr!!! Karl and Sally are AMAZING. I... started my first ever pilates classes here, trainers are super familylike and always gives us full charge of power and motivation!Each class runs about 50mins and has variety of levels that can be adjusted to your own pace. Within 2-3 months later I could clearly see my ab lines forming (such a great core strengthening!) which was surprising as I have never seen that before.One of the greatest thing is that you get to learn a lot about your postures and muscle engagement with those muscles that we wont usually use .I genuinely really love coming to the classes, thanks to the great team I really look forward to comimg to the studoi class after a tiring day of work, it is such a great way to end the day with heals and heals of positive energy! 🙂read more
