Where do you teach Pilates?
Amy teaches at her private studio in Rose bay and online via Zoom.
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?
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.
