“I have been fanatical about health and well-being my whole life, and with physical activity being my passion it was a natural progression that I fell into the role of becoming a Pilates instructor.”
I completed a Bachelor of Health Sciences at Deakin University in 2014 and Certificate IV in Clinical Pilates at Breathe Education in 2018. Coming from a background of medical administration in orthopaedic rehabilitation and oncology, I am a strong advocate for living an active lifestyle for longevity.
Growing up in Ballarat, my first taste of Pilates was through our school rowing program. I remember how we all loved this different form of exercise and how difficult these “simple” movements could be, and I quickly became obsessed with this new challenge. It wasn’t until I moved to Melbourne many years later that I found my love for Pilates again with group reformer classes.
I love the holistic benefits of Pilates, from the strengthening and conditioning of the body, improved flexibility and balance, to the mental health benefits. Pilates has allowed me to feel strong and powerful, and helped me feel good about myself. I want to share this feeling with my clients.
I enjoy the creativity in creating new sequences for my clients and making every class a different experience. I aim to offer fun, strong and dynamic challenges, empowering my clients to be the best version of themselves, and leave feeling energised and eager to come back.
When I’m not bouncing around on a reformer you’ll find me out running, in a yoga class, planning my next overseas adventure, trying new brunch spots or relaxing on my parents farm with a good book and my cat Donny.
