At this moment in time, my life is so full with busyness and it is not ideal to continue on at this pace. I know there are weak links in my body and have been amazed at how you work with those areas. I can feel the strength building and supporting my framework and at 62, I am now hopeful that I can delay the effects of osteoporosis, curved spine (dowagers hump), knee & foot problems, chest pain, elbow pain……… Oh goodness I have a list of things that have already all improved over the last 18 months.
I find it miraculous after all of my sessions that you have been able to pinpoint and provide particular movements to counteract any twinges that occur. I know you have a program for me but when I come in each week after gardening, weeding & shovelling mulch and lifting heavy things you are instantly flexible to work with the immediate situation. I look forward to my weekly sessions and will continue to try and do exercises in between times. Thank you!
Liz has a beautiful way of both supporting and pushing you. She has a deep understanding of healthy movement and structural function, combined with a patient and grounded manner. The studio is calm and professional. After having two kids, I feel grateful to have her help in starting to get my body back and rebuilding my strength. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

I am a horse riding coach, and I went to see Liz after one of my clients showed amazing improvements in her posture and ability on the horse. She had been having sessions from Liz. I wanted help with stiffness in my shoulders and arms in horse riding. Not just a standard exercise programme: Liz creates a personalised programme for your individual needs. After the first session I could already see a massive improvement in the riding problems I have been struggling with for over 20 years. I could feel freedom in my shoulders and was able to maintain the improvement. I’m seeing Liz every week and the improvements in all aspects of my riding are continuing, not just the arms and shoulders, but in areas where I didn’t even realise I had problems. Liz’s skill is wonderful and I recommend her to all my clients.
Liz is all about awareness, precision and humour 🙂 Liz has an exceptional ability to observe bodies in motion and give precise, targeted instructions that create alignment and awareness. She has both the humour and energy to keep the workout fun while pushing you to new limits. Liz is incredibly friendly, patient and approachable – she always asks me how I am feeling the moment I walk in and concentrates, after listening to the answer to tailor my session around my feedback.
“To have a world-class Pilates teacher living in Narara is quite something.
Liz Stride has great knowledge of the workings of our bodies and is able to gently coach us to reprogram our movements to better serve us through life.
She walks her talk and is patient, attentive, generous and passionate. Both my body and I are so grateful and look forward to seeing her weekly.”

I’ve done Pilates on and off for years, but Liz is hands down the best. Her understanding of the body and the way it works takes my Pilates sessions to a whole new level. She’s lovely to work with and tailors each session to what is required that day. I’m a horse rider and I’m riding straighter and stronger than I ever have before.
I am lucky to have a private session with Liz due to my particular health needs. Liz has been so generous taking the time to understand my condition & tailoring the sessions to ensure I benefit. It has been a great journey – my health has improved both physically and emotionally thanks to Liz! Highly recommend Silencito.

Starting Pilates at your studio has been a game changer for me. Not only have I recovered from my initial injury but I have been able to return to my sports stronger than before. It is a grounding, gentle yet strengthening practice.
I cannot imagine life without Pilates now. Thank your for teaching it.
I’ve been a student at Liz’s studio now for over 3 months and I look forward to our weekly Pilates session. Liz is caring, structured, precise and has a profound understanding of the body, which makes her a great teacher. I’ve noticed a large difference in my core and pelvic floor strength being now 12 months postpartum since starting with Liz. I’d highly recommend her studio and currently online Zoom class (in the current times of covid) to enhance your strength, stability and overall wellbeing.

Me, Raju (alias Nagarajan Swaminathan) and my wife, Indira (Indira Nagarajan) have had the privilege of undergoing Pilates under your inimitable guidance from year 2014. Aged as we are (me in the early 70s and my wife in mid 60s), Pilates training introduced by our well wishing son, would not have been our cup of tea, we would have taken life easy and ended up in gossiping and whiling away our time.
But, association with you transformed us. We were transfixed by your Pilates training, to say the least. You took us through the system of exercises so elegantly, introduced us to the various apparatuses and made us physically stronger with improved poise, better flexibility & agility and mentally more serene and peaceful.
We look forward to every session of your Pilates so eagerly. We love your training.God bless.
Raju and Indira
Liz is the best Pilates instructor I have ever had . If it wasn’t for liz I wouldn’t have had baby no.2. .. We are forever grateful. Liz has patience and understanding of women’s health
I cannot recommend Liz highly enough. I have known her for over 10 years and have followed her throughout Sydney to be part of her pilates classes. Liz is sincerely good, hardworking, and passionate about pilates. I have genuinely benefitted physically, emotionally and mentally from my pilates classes with her. She has strengthened my body pre and post me bearing four children (including twins in that mix!). Her classes are challenging and enjoyable. Liz is simply brilliant.
Liz is beyond fantastic. I’d had what i thought were flexibility issues for over 2 decades, but within 2-3 sessions she’d found out my stabilising muscles were being underused, and the pain i felt were my ‘main’ muscles being overworked.
Not only are her knowledge and skills first rate, she’s always cheerful and ready to assist, and has no problem staying back with you to help you with the program she’s expertly put together. I literally cannot recommend her and her studio highly enough.
Liz is an excellent pilates instructor, I’ve loved her method and appreciated her way of stimulating people to work with their bodies.
