About


Pilates in Guelph South, a movement and wellness centre.

We strive to create a peaceful sanctuary to facilitate movement and wellness.   Through classes, workshop and wellness practitioners, our space at 17 Goodwin will inspire people to harness their personal power to achieve their wellness goals.  Guelph has a rich community of healing, mostly downtown.  Though in the south end, this community is small.  Our Goodwin studio will facilitate and expand that community to the south end providing a hub for continued growth. 

We strive to create a place for community to come together, have a tea, chat with a neighbor, do a class or attend a workshop.  Our clients at our downtown studio often tell us how much they love the community at our studio. We aspire to create a similar feeling in the South end.   

We will offer Pilates, Yoga, Barre and other movement modalities as well as health services and collaborations to expand our program.   We strive to help new business owners build and create, by offering pop up opportunities at our Goodwin space.   We will strongly encourage collaborations between practitioners to produce new and meaningful information for our clients.  

Who we are as a company.

Pilates in Guelph changes lives through movement. We help people find freedom and joy in their movement to improve performance, posture and eliminating pain.  For the last 19 years, Pilates in Guelph, has created a safe, supportive atmosphere for its clients and staff to grow. Most of our staff began as clients and fell in love with the community and business, then choose to do training with the owner, Caitlin Bovee and work for the company. 

One of our specialties is helping clients who don’t fit the typical exercise paradigm. We specialized in creating movements for the client rather than making the client fit the exercises. Our ability to observe someone’s movement mechanics, is the reason for our success. We focus on optimal joint mobility which creates balanced musculature and connects bodies with their inherent strength and stability. Our owner, Caitlin Bovee, travels around North America to train with the leaders in movement mechanics and bring the latest research on movement back to Guelph. 

Over the last couple of years, owner, Caitlin Bovee, has worked to create a vibrant and supportive workplace for its staff. Working on the business side of Pilates in Guelph, has allowed the company it hire more staff, create more jobs and help more people.  The smiles on our clients faces make it all worthwhile. 

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge is getting the word out to South Guelph so they can partake in our offerings. In our first studio, word of mouth was our greatest referral so we are working on connecting with community groups around the South end studio to garner their support and backing.
We are seeking artists, musicians and new businesses as I would like to highlight them in our space to create an eclectic feel.
