About Dynamic Stability, our history and why we are the best in the business

At Dynamic Stability, our philosophy is to provide the highest quality personalised services in Pilates, physiotherapy and rehabilitation. We can treat musculoskeletal and general injuries, as well as to assist in improving core and trunk stability and improve sporting performance and posture. We take an active approach to injury prevention and rehabilitation, and in the development and maintenance of your health and well-being.

Since Dynamic Stability started in 2001, we have grown from a single studio to a large centre in Richmond, with two studios and a group fitness room for mat and Allegro (reformer) classes and treatment rooms for physiotherapy, myotherapy, Chinese medicine and skin therapy. More recently we have expanded our small Elwood studio into a much larger venue in Ripponlea.

Dynamic Stability is the Melbourne host site and training centre for Polestar Pilates International, for which Darren is the principal educator. Each year twenty participants undertake a one-year certification course, an intensive training program that is recognised throughout more than thirty countries. The course is available to Pilates instructors and other rehabilitation professionals, including physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and physicians (sports medicine, orthopaedic, general practice, obstetrics and gynaecology).

We provide Pilates with the highest level of supervision, offering one-on-one, one-on-two, one-on-four, and one-on-eight sessions and allowing our clients to choose exactly how much supervision they require.
At the Richmond studio we have seventeen reformers, four trapeze tables, five Wunda chairs, two barrels, step barrels, baby arcs, foam rollers, rotator disks and many other props spaced out over three Pilates beautiful rooms as well as five separate consulting rooms. Our Ripponlea studio has four reformers, two trapeze tables, a Wunda chair, barrel and Power Plate machine and two private consulting rooms. Both studios offer real-time diagnostic ultrasound, which is a valuable tool in assessing abdominal and pelvic muscle control.

As well as caring for physical health, our goal at Dynamic Stability is to provide our clients with the best opportunity to achieve an overall sense of well-being. Many persistent muscle and joint pains can be traced back to an internal imbalance and we can provide a coordinated and integrated approach to helping you achieve a feeling of wellness you have probably forgotten it was possible to feel. Our Chinese medicine therapist is on hand to assess your inner health and treat any imbalances in your body’s systems with acupuncture and herbal medicine. Our physiotherapists, Pilates instructors, myotherapists, lomi lomi (Hawaiian massage) practitioners and Chinese medicine therapists can provide a coordinated response to all of your concerns and are committed to helping you achieve your desired results.

What is Pilates?

Pilates is a low impact, high intensity exercise system developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century. Pilates called his method Contrology because it uses the mind to control the muscles. The method focuses on the uniform, even development of the body using smooth, controlled, precise movements.

The Pilates method comprises well over 500 exercises that target different parts of the body and focus on developing muscle strength and movement control. With such a vast variety of movements, one of the key advantages is that clients are constantly challenged in new ways and rarely find their exercise regime repetitive or boring. Focused attention and precise action mean that most exercises require fewer repetitions than other forms of exercise. Exercises can be progressed to make them more challenging or regressed to make them easier, making Pilates the ideal fitness regime for everyone.

The exercises can be done on the floor (mat) alone or with props, or they can be done with various pieces of unique equipment (reformer, trapeze table, combo or Wunda chair, ladder barrel, spine corrector, foam rolls, magic circles and more) in the studio.

Some of the benefits (and goals) of Pilates are:

  • Coordination
  • Strength
  • Mobility (flexibility)
  • Efficient movement
  • Flowing movement
  • Proper posture
  • Mental and spiritual rejuvenation
  • Self-awareness
  • Good balance
  • Injury prevention
  • Self-confidence
  • Restoration of natural animal movement
  • Integration of body, mind and spirit
  • Sense of well being
  • Enhanced quality of life

Pilates can be used to enhance performance for dancers, athletes and sports players, both professional and amateur. Pilates is especially good for improving core control, balance, co-ordination and flexibility, all of which are integral to achieving sporting goals without risking injury.

Pilates is also an ideal rehabilitative exercise system for people with injuries or physical limitations and has consequently become popular with many rehabilitation professionals, including physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and physicians. It is also one of the safest ways to maintain and improve fitness during pregnancy. It is a wonderful choice for people who want to maintain strength and flexibility without undue bulking-up of the muscles.
