About the Owner

Emma Hayes

Owner, Clinical Myotherapist, Mat Pilates Instructor, Studio Pilates Instructor

Emma has been working as a Myotherapist on the Mornington Peninsula since 2009. During this time she came to realise that the amazing results of Myotherapy were only enhanced by regular, controlled, exercise programs that helped her clients understand their own body. Emma found that Pilates was the missing link in her client care. After completing both Mat and Studio Pilates instruction qualifications, Emma has been teaching Pilates since 2014 and loves combining her Myotherapy care and Pilates knowledge to give her clients a complete solution to their soft tissue complaints.

As a mum of 3, Emma has a strong interest in all areas of women’s health and women’s rehabilitation, although she maintains a strong sports care background working in the past with the University Games and Victorian Touch Rugby, and in more recent times local football/netball clubs, runners, cyclists, and gym goers.

Emma has a friendly, personable approach and very much believes in open communication with her clients.

“Understanding your own body can be very tricky, I like to help my clients understand their pain or problem, why they have it, where it came from, what I can do to help, and what they can do to help themselves. The combination of Myotherapy and Pilates is such a life-changer because the Myotherapy treatments start the healing process by reducing pain, and increasing range of movement. The Pilates classes complete the repair by training inactive muscles and weak postures away from a life time of bad habits with no risk of injury. It’s the perfect combination for better health. I love my job!”

Amazing place!! Amazing team!! The best and most welcoming atmosphere, will never go anywhere else!


Such a family friendly place which really caters for me as a working mum with a toddler. I really enjoy the Pilates classes they offer and love the small class sizes too.


Professional, knowledgeable and just good people who genuinely care, want to help and have the skills to help. It’s just a great place!


Great place to get all your sports injuries sorted. I wouldn’t go anywhere else and I cannot speak highly enough of the SMAPS squad.


Pilates and massage helped me so much throughout my pregnancy. It is now helping me to strengthen and tone my body. Love SMAPS.
