I have grown up dancing since I was two years old, so I have always enjoyed the strict nature of Ballet. That is what I love so much about barre, it incorporates similar elements of Ballet while still making it fun and enjoyable.
Exercise and fitness became a large part of my life when I was 15. After my very first barre class I knew I wanted to teach it and change peoples lives like it began to change mine. I was already completing my Certificate III in Fitness and I thought it would be a great addition to my current qualification as a group fitness instructor. I want to make a difference in someone’s life, whether that is through helping them achieve their goals or teaching them how to tendu correctly.
Growing up I was a naturally active kid. I was always out and about bike riding, bush walking, climbing mountains, swimming and even horse riding.
In my early 20’s I started to get into boot camps and the gym and when I was 25 I discovered Pilates and absolutely fell in love. It completely changed my body shape for the better and never before had I achieved results like I did with Pilates, so I decided to team my nutrition qualification with a personal training qualification and then a Pilates qualification soon after.
I have a diverse skill set from working in the health and beauty industry including massage for 15 years. This experience and education has given me an advanced ability in understanding how the body moves, functions and what needs to be done to improve it.
It has allowed me to gain a broad knowledge of the body and mind and how to use this to find balance and happiness in life. I understand the pressures that society puts on all of us and how our body’s react, which drove me to further my positive impact on others through pilates.
I love to help people realise and achieve their goals in a friendly and supportive environment.
