I have always been involved in movement as a dancer, trained in Classical Ballet, Theatrical, Jazz and Tap dancing. My first career as a professional dancer took me travelling to many places around the world. Once home in Perth I continued professional dancing and teaching dance classes to children and adults on and off for over 20 years.
However, after taking a break I found I missed the feeling of being strong and flexible. My body had changed. I started practicing and fell in love with the Pilates method over 15 years ago. I was SO amazed at the way it made my body feel, it gave me so much more than a traditional gym workout. I was in awe at how Pilates conditions the body. I liken it to the lengthening and strengthening benefits of dance training but suitable for anyone, especially if you are just starting out (or starting back) to exercise. Because of this love of Pilates, I pursued my training and qualifications as a Pilates practitioner so I could share this joy with others!
Pilates benefits people involved in all forms of movement and sports and is a wonderful way to maintain a strong and healthy body as we age. Mostly I love the mind and body connection that Pilates practice gives you.
The reformer classes are held in a lovely private studio maximum 4 people per class, so you can experience hands on professional guidance and attention. Reformer Pilates is a wonderful mindful exercise that will help you achieve better posture, balance, flexibility and strength by helping you build longer, leaner muscles. It will change the way your body feels almost immediately. It is suitable for anybody starting a new exercise regime. I will introduce new challenges into the repertoire each week to build strength.
Reformer Pilates classes are available 6 days a week, Monday to Saturday.
