Our mission at Inspired Pilates is to help our clients live their best lives by guiding them toward a healthier, stronger version of themselves.

Inspired Pilates was founded in 2020 by owner and Pilates Instructor, Emma Betson, out of a desire to provide a safe place to move, restore and feel good. After experiencing the benefits of Pilates herself, she made it a priority to bring the benefits of Pilates to others. 

Emma comes from a background in Classical Ballet, Psychology and Social Work.  She left her full time Social Worker role in 2017 to pursue her passion for Pilates completing her Diploma in Professional Pilates Instruction.  Always wanting to learn more, Emma is completing her Advanced Diploma currently.  This gives the studio the ability to meet a wide variety of needs and goals. Emma has a serious passion for helping you reach your goals, a passion for teaching and a passion for continuing to learn. 

As we continue to grow and set our sights on bringing more Pilates classes to more students we hope you’ll join us!



I’ve been doing reformer pilates for 6 years now and thought I’d give Inspired Pilates a go for some one on one training. I’ve just had my first session with Emma and I’ve learnt so much in just one session. Emma’s knowledge for anatomy is amazing. I love that Emma personalizes your sessions to suit your needs. Her studio is equipped with many exciting pilates apparatus I haven't used before and I can’t wait to do my next session

Inspired Pilates Collective has changed my life. I use to go to a group pilates class and because I'm overweight and in my 50's I felt insecure about my body and embarrassed. Emma is so kind and calm and tailors the class around my needs and ability level.  The results are amazing and I'm getting stronger everyday!
I feel so comfortable and at home with Emma!
I've finally found something that works for me and an exercise I look forward to.

Emma is a brilliant Pilates instructor and introduced me to reformer - her classes are fun and while she looks sweet she will make you work and at times sweat. All this and more while encouraging you and getting to know your strengths and what you need moving forward. You won’t be disappointed with her classes.
