Where do you teach Pilates?

I teach at various studios based around Sydney’s eastern suburbs, including MPower Pilates, The Royal Sydney Golf Club and Kiralates. I am currently taking on new private clients at MPower Pilates Bondi beach. For a list of studios closest to you for both group classes or to book a private, please get in touch.

I’ve never done Pilates before, should I have a private lesson?

I always recommend that new students have a private lesson before joining group equipment and Mat classes. This will ensure that you understand the basic movements and principles of Pilates and how to use the equipment. It will also allow me to get to know your body. This ensures that you to get the most out of private and group lessons. Regular private Pilates offer individualised sessions tailored to your unique body and health goals.

It's been a while since I've exercised, is Pilates safe?
The beauty of private sessions is that we can go at a pace that you are comfortable with. I can also work closely with your health practitioner if you have any existing injuries or health conditions. You will be amazed at how quickly you will pick it all up, and how quickly you will feel the benefits!
Can I do Pilates casually on a drop in basis?

I always say that one session a week is better than zero sessions. Ideally, I would love to see my students try to get two Pilates classes or sessions a week to really reap the benefits of the strengthening method.

Where did you do your teacher training?

I did my comprehensive Pilates instructor teacher training with the amazing Michelle Koton from MPower Pilates. This course is in partnership with one of the most respected and forward thinking Pilates Studios in the USA : Pilates Chicago. This training was a small group and intimate mentorship. It was an individualized apprenticeship, rather than a “cookie-cutter” educational process. I was able to get up close and personal during my observation hours and really became part of the family at the studio. I have an incredible mentor and friend in Michelle, and look forward to working besides her for many years to come.

What is your cancellation policy?
For private Pilates there is a 24 hour cancellation policy.
What is naturopathy?
Naturopathy is an alternative medicine that takes a holistic approach to health based on the principle that the body has the inherit ability to heal itself. Naturopathic principles are based on treated the person as an individual looking at each body system, diet and lifestyle rather than the affected area of symptom. As a naturopath I use herbal medicine, lifestyle counselling and nutritional supplements to help restore balance in the body, address your health concerns and help you reach your optimum health levels.
What can I expect from an initial Naturopathic consultation?

During your initial consultation I take the time to really get to know you and your current health status. Together we will go through each body system, your diet, lifestyle factors and put together a naturopathic treatment plan. In some cases herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation or further testings may be recommended. This is a chance for you to get a very comprehensive assessment of your current health and a detailed guide to address any concerns.
