Stott Pilates Classes

I am a fully qualified Stott Pilates teacher and can offer you a personal, customised exercise routine suited to help you improve your strength, fitness and posture.

Pilates is a form of mind and body exercise that focuses on strengthening the deep stabilizing muscles of the body. Joseph Pilates referred to the core stabilizing muscles as the “Powerhouse”, these muscle groups provide structural support and help to give correct body posture.

About Me

I believe that nutrition and supplementation is just as important as a focused exercise program and after assessing my client’s goals and fitness levels, I advise them on the best methods for them to achieve their goals and how to maintain them. Whether it be weight-loss, overall body toning, muscle building, enhanced sports performance or rehab specific exercises for problems like osteoporosis, arthritis etc.I started practicing Pilates in 2009 and teaching the STOTT Pilates method from January 2010. Over the years I’ve personally had back, knee and neck problems and was amazed how I had fully recovered after just one year of Pilates. I am very interested in the human body and how it functions and find no matter how experienced someone is, there is always something new to learn. I realised STOTT Pilates was the best choice for me as this method is a medically based Pilates discipline.We study the body in detail from the bones and joints to the muscles and learn how to adapt exercises for injuries and specific posture types.I am internationally qualified in Essential, Intermediate and Advanced Matwork as well as Essential and Intermediate Reformer. In 2012 I completed the Advanced Reformer Course and in 2014 completed the Injuries and Special Populations Course as well as various workshops and recently in 2016 I completed the Basi Standing Pilates workshop. In 2019 I completed the Cadillac intensive course essential-advanced level in Cape Town, South Africa with Lisa Palmer at the movement lab.
In 2019 I sold Powerpilates Durban North branch and in June 2020 sold Powerpilates Westville and recently relocated to Bowral, New South Wales in Australia.

My mission is to create and maintain the highest standards of Pilates teaching and health coaching for each individual by creating specific programmes to help correct posture and improve health for each and every individual’s needs.
