Why did you join the fitness industry?

As a Pilates enthusiast for over 20 years, I am and always have been passionate about movement and daily exercise as a way of life.

After moving to Melbourne 10 years ago, I decided to retrain as a Pilates instructor, and left my corporate world behind. I ran a beautiful boutique home studio, as well as working with some amazing teachers and studios in the St Kilda area: including Louise from Taube Pilates– with whom I did my training and Arnel from Classical Studio Daily Pilates

Now back in my hometown of Sydney, it’s been amazing reconnecting with the Pilates community – and meeting many new faces too- while covering and teaching at local studios in the Eastern Suburbs.

What is your level of experience?

Although my original training is in Contemporary Pilates, my true love lies in Classical.  I am currently undertaking bridging training with Olga Tamara at APEI.I completed my training in Melbourne with Taube Pilates including: full studio and mat courses, contemporary reformer courses, anatomy, pre and post natal training.

How do you give your clients the results they desire?

I strongly believe in incorporating the Pilates principles into daily life and activities, whilst infusing those around me with a love of movement. What will follow will be a real appreciation of what the body is able to and can do, whilst feeling strong and long!

I am constantly growing and developing my skills, looking to further my knowledge and learning in anything and everything Pilates related.

I aim to provide you with the ultimate Pilates experience. I believe Pilates can and will change your life
