    Try out Anhao:

    Should be within your price range.

    Sassy review here:

    As you will note lots of these places offer a trial session at a reasonable price. Good chance to check out a few before committing to buy a package.

    If you buy a package it just is in your price bracket, and gives a very tough workout.
    H Kore is great. It's actually Lagree Fitness which is a faster more cardio version of Pilates Reformer. Good workout but it may not suit you if you're looking for something relaxing.

    Anhao Wellness is now offering a Twangoo deal on Reformer class. Check it out!

    H Kore uses the Megaformer machine that was built based on the Pilates Reformer. But the class at H Kore does not emphasise the basic principles of Pilates and hence cannot be considered a Pilates class. Just because they use a similar equipment does not make it Pilates. It's all about basics (breathing, pelvic placement, stabilisation etc etc).

    Is there an echo in here?!! As I posted immediately prior to the above post, H Kore is Lagree Fitness.

    OP, just as a fyi, Khema seems to have a particular dislike for H Kore for some reason so don't expect to get any positive feedback on this particular subject. If it's something that interests you, pop in and visit H Kore. All the staff are very friendly (and very experienced) and will be more than happy to show you round and answer any questions. I can give you specific names of who to ask for if you want that (just PM me).

    Options Studio on Stanley St do some small group Reformer classes as well as 1:1 sessions (not sure if they do any mat classes, probably). They're very good and have an excellent reputation. I know the owner and one of the instructors and they're good guys and very qualified.
