Today was Over-55 Reformer Pilates class number 7 (I think). There was a new lady in the class today, and listening to her (normal) newbie questions I realised that I am starting to know what I'm doing! And that is all due to Abby, who has helped me so much! She still checks in with me before and after the class to make sure I am okay, and gives me tips to tweak the movements during the class - but when I feel her looking at me and not saying anything, I know I am doing okay. Abby, I love your support and professionalism. Thank you!
“I love the way Pilates enables clients to take control of their body bringing it back into balance. It’s the perfect way to improve our posture and strengthen the body and mind.”
I worked as a Remedial Massage Therapist where I found no matter how often people would have a massage, if they continued with there lifestyle then no amount of massage would fully bring their body back to balance.
I had dabbled in Pilates myself and loved the benefits of body awareness and strength it gave me. So after referring many clients to Pilates as a way of helping to correct and balance their bodies and seeing the difference it made, I decided to return to study and completed my Diploma in Pilates Instruction through National Pilates Instruction in Melbourne in 2014.
I have been teaching Pilates since and love watching the change in clients, from when they walk in the door to when the leave after a session feeling taller and stronger. The Pilates Method helps us maintain a healthy body, working all our joints through a full range of motion.
Outside of work and practising Pilates, I like to keep fit with running a few times a week. I love spending time with family and friends. Supporting our four kids with their sport, both football and netball and relaxing down the coast.
