Five years ago, I began practising Pilates. It was at a difficult time in my life and I found it gave me a sense of strength and peace that I had never experienced. Pilates has changed my life, and I tell everyone about that.
Having started my training in Classical Pilates, then having a baby, I experienced the benefits of rehabilitative Pilates work.
I put my Classical Pilates training on hold and in 2016 completed a Diploma in Pilates Movement Therapy with Pilates Teacher Trainer, Carla Mullins from the Australian Pilates Method Association. I continue to be mentored by Suzanne McCarty. I am grateful to have learnt from, and learnt with, strong, intelligent and knowledgeable women.
I believe that Pilates can provide a strong sense of center, that it can release and strengthen, and above all, make you happy. I look forward to working with you at HARA.
Seven 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.
I have now successfully completed a Diploma of Pilates Movement Therapy, including 150 hours practice teaching, studying with Carla Mullins, a teacher trainer for the Australian Pilates Method Association and owner of Body Organics. I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you.
