Hara Pilates Instructor
-Diploma of Pilates Movement Therapy

Nine years ago, I was introduced to Suzanne McCarty to address my poor posture and I discovered a movement therapy that became addictive due to the amazing results I experienced firsthand ­- not only with my posture but strength, flexibility and overall happiness!
I continued my Pilates practice throughout two pregnancies and following each birth. This gave me strength and soothed my weary body and mind.
In 2016 I successfully completed a Diploma of Pilates Movement Therapy, with Carla Mullins, a teacher trainer for the Australian Pilates Method Association and owner of Body Organics.

Since then, I have been teaching at Hara Beyond Movement Studio alongside my wonderful colleagues and have enjoyed meeting and teaching many wonderful clients.
