Joseph Pilates, born in Germany, started developing a training system in the early twentieth century which would later bear his name.
The basics of the Pilates Method lies in the development, control and support of all movement possibilities in the human body.
Awareness and training go hand in hand in the Pilates Method, in addition to a careful construction of muscle control and a strong emphasis on the development of a centralized and integrated awareness in the control of all human movements.
The method can serve as an extension of each exercise or therapy, as well as a stand-alone ‘workout' and therefore ideal in creating a personalized, customized training form.
The Franklin Method®
This method combines the mental and motor elements of movement in the human body through the use of:
The Franklin Method® is recognized by the health providers in Switzerland and is regularly seen at Dance, Pilates, Yoga and Physiotherapy conferences. One of the greatest discoveries of the 21st century is the plasticity of the brain; that the lives we live shape the brain we develop. The Franklin Method® is at the forefront of practical neuro-plasticity; showing you how to use your brain to improve your body’s function.
This method, based on fundamental scientific research, brings efficiency to all physical treatments, trainings and/or rehabilitation.

Studio Zuid works with a ten week Pilates mat block card. The block is based on the above holidays. If you miss your class you can make this up in any of the other classes offered. This system is designed to create progression, which cannot occur if you are not coming regularly to class. All new clients are required to attend one private intake session to determine the best class for your specific needs. Please contact us for more information.
An equipment class can be arranged in consultation with Studio Zuid. The choice for the type of class is a very personal one.
Experience shows that clients with physical complaints are best served by a Private class, simply because a targeted re-education works best in a one on one situation.
The first Private class has an exploratory character in which expectations and physical symptoms and/or limitations are discussed. This 'intake' class lasts an hour. After this the trainer and client decide together on how to continue.
The Duet and Trio classes focus more on the 'Workout' aspect of the Pilates Method and are often chosen by clients without physical complaints.
Studio Zuid equipment classes work with a medium or large 'package' which can easily be used for all the equipment trainings. Please contact us for more information.
The classic wall unit is a variation on the oldest piece of Pilates equipment, the so-called Cadillac.
Studio Zuid is unique in having eight customized wall units to assist the small group classes as well as the mat classes in connecting with movement from their 'deep core'.
Unique to Studio Zuid is the band and barre associated with this piece of equipment.
Specific to each client's needs, please only utilize a video under Matthew's direct advisement.
