Change happens through movement and movement heals – Joseph Pilates
After discovering Pilates over 10 years ago I still to this today enjoy the challenge of mastering the technique and continually evolving on my journey of having a healthy mind and body in our fast paced life. After years of running and being a ‘gym junkie’ plus having two children, Pilates offered me that time to ‘destress’ as well as reconditioning my body.
My experience of teaching over the last 10 years only fuels my passion for supporting others for a happy and healthy life. Qualified with Diploma in Pilates Instruction for Studio and Mat repertoire with Polestar Pilates who offer training with physiotherapists and a comprehensive learning environment.
Having worked in numerous Adelaide studios and elite gyms has given me an opportunity to expand my knowledge further from others who share the love of Pilates both on a fitness and remedial level.
