What makes matworks different?
Our combined services.
We are YOUR one stop shop. We offer an incredible combined treatment of either Massage and Pilates or Massage and Yoga. You choose the order of treatments.
For Yoga most people choose to do their Yoga one on one first then Massage.
For Pilates we encourage the Massage first to release tight holding patterns, and then workout after. This enables us to find the muscles that never normally work due to the dominant muscles holding tension.
Massage + Yoga
On Eridani’s Class
Eridani’s classes integrate classical yoga teachings relevant to one’s life on and off the mat. Classes include chanting, breath awareness, vinyasa, alignment exploration, hands on assistance, relaxation and meditation. Sequences are designed following Jivamukti guidelines – they are safe and enjoyable to practice. Sound plays an integral role, exuberant and eclectic soundtracks always feature.
I grew up part time in a radio station and part time in a yoga studio. My parents named me after a navigational star system and said it was so I would “think big, but never get lost”. I spent 10 years working in media before switching to yoga. I teach because that’s how yoga works. The teacher gives the teachings to the student, and the student’s job is to then become the teacher. I am grateful to all of my teachers and teach in honour of them.
Massage + Pilates
On Pilates One to One
Pilates is most effective when done one to one. Your instructors full attention will be on you, helping to see from the outside what habits you have and how we can train you out of them.
You will see better results from 1 one to one session per week than 3 group classes, as every exercise is specifically tailored to your body.
Our instructors are all trained dancers. They have an innate intuition when it comes to the body, and you will notice a huge difference with the added massage treatment first.
During a regular one to one, we spend half the time trying to loosen you up, and only get to work on strengthening for 30mins. This way we can dive straight into the work and start to see results faster.

This is to make sure we can arrange both therapist and instructor to be available for you at the same time.
We add 15minutes to the end of your massage to allow our therapists time to reset the room for our next valued customer. This gives you a chance also to get dressed, have a cup of tea and do a few stretches in our stretch area before you leave.
What you wear to your appointment doesn’t matter unless you are staying for Pilates or Yoga too. We will use grape seed oil during your massage therefore it’s best to be only in your underwear. You will of course be suitably covered at all times. For Pilates or Yoga we ask that you wear loose and comfortable clothing that you can move in.
Absolutely. Just talk to your therapist about it before the treatment begins. If only a 45min Massage then another area will have less time spent on it to cater for your request.
what do others say about massageworks?
I’ve been having massages with Kate regularly throughout 2017. She is highly skilled and her warmth and generous spirit make her an excellent massage therapist. I would certainly recommend her services.
“Eridani has a beautiful caring energy which makes her the perfect yoga teacher. Funny, intelligent, incredibly fit and encouraging, she puts you at ease and makes you want to go back for more. Her knowledge of positions and history and stories connected with the positions give you deeper understanding of why we are doing what we are doing and she treats each person according to their individual needs and remembers small details about each person which shows how much she invests in her students and the practice of yoga. Eridani is born to teach yoga.”
“Eridani is a beautiful, quirky, authentic yoga teacher. Her classes are challenging to the mind and body. They are fun, inspiring, attentive and held with so much support and love. She has a loving devotion to the practice of yoga that I feel in her classes. At the end of a class I feel centred, connected to myself, inspired, accomplished and safe. She gives insightful adjustments and teaches a class with precision and creativity. She has helped me to deepen my practice, she inspires me to practice with respect.

“Eridani is one of the best teachers I have ever had the pleasure of being taught by. She genuinely cares about her students and that really shows in her classes. Her knowledge of yoga is extensive and she shares that with her students through stories and assists which helps to keep the class interactive and engaging”
