The owner of the beautifully crafted HARA Beyond Movement Studio and principal instructor, Suzanne McCarty is a fully certified Pilates instructor and a Principal Level Pilates trainer member of the Pilates Alliance Australia, a GYROTONIC® method trainer and Pre Trainer, GYROKINESIS® method trainer and Pre trainer and 500 hour registered Yoga teacher with Yoga Australia.
In her classes and private sessions Suzanne shares with great enthusiasm her passion for movement and anatomy that is based on her extensive knowledge from a lifetime of studying and practicing movement.
Suzanne’s story began at age 3: “My life has always been about movement, beginning with a childhood love of ballet that continued through a 12 year dance career in Europe. During ballet training, I discovered yoga as a way to promote my flexibility and strength. Yoga eventually became my haven from career and life pressures. Years later when rehabilitation was needed from a dancing injury, I found Pilates. Pilates picked me up when I was weak and literally kicked me in the butt to catapult me into new beginnings.
I then left dancing and 18 years ago became a teacher of Movement and I now love the diversity of studying, practicing and teaching Pilates, Yoga, the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® method. HARA Beyond Movement Studio was created to share my love of teaching all things BODY MIND SOUL. To me, it feels like Pilates is a foundation that keeps my feet on the ground and strengthens my core. The GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® method open up energy pathways for ease of movement and freedom while Yoga is a higher connection that allows me to keep it all together, live in peace with integrity to myself and others.
