Beyond Movements Studio



What is Hara? 

Often, people ask this question when they visit this unique studio in Coffs Harbour at 2/105-107 West High Street. The name, HARA is a Japanese term that refers to a place in the body where the elixir of life is created. This is located in the belly region, a few inches below the navel, so HARA is ’the centre of your being’.


But, why beyond movement? What can I do at Hara?

Owner of HARA Studio Suzanne McCarty, has created something more than a Pilates and Yoga studio. Her vision is a studio that offers a broad range of movement techniques to ensure each student receives the full benefits that freedom of movement can bring.  Each of us has a unique body and mind, and we need different methods to find balance, strength and flexibility to develop and remain healthy in body, mind and soul. 


To meet your unique needs, HARA Studio offers a community of well trained and experienced teachers for Pilates, the GYROTONIC® method, GYROKINESIS® exercise and Yoga practice, as well as Meditation to assist you in finding your unique way to wellbeing! 


The HARA Studio principles are simple: build strength from the inside out - a strong Hara and a flexible spine combined with a balanced, positive mind. This is a magic formula for a healthy, happy and long life!
