A little bit about me…

After gaining experience from working at several Pilates studios, one physio, and numerous home visits throughout the years, my vision of creating a wholesome studio, with a strong community spirit came to fruition.

Already teaching several Pilates Mat Classes a week at the Gold Coast PCYC, I saw potential in developing a Pilates Studio, one that could be accessed and on offer to my current matwork clients, as well as PCYC gym members. I was fortunate enough to have my proposal approved and months later, after renovating the space with my Husband over a (very long) Easter long weekend, Invigorate Pilates was born.

I was first introduced to Pilates in 2000 to help enhance my ballet training. I instantly appreciated the method and ideology behind Pilates, and soon learnt the importance of maintaining healthy muscles, joints and bones.

In 2007, I completed my Certificate IV in Pilates Instruction, and two years later achieved my Diploma of Professional Pilates Practice through Pilates International Training Centre.

Over the years, I have taught people from all walks of life; from aspiring dancers to clients in their 80’s, covering a wide range of fitness levels. I enjoy challenging clients and helping them achieve their goals.

I currently hold a Level 4 Membership of the Pilates Alliance Australasia (PAA).

A little bit about Joseph Pilates …

Joseph Pilates was born in Germany in 1880. Small and sickly as a child, he quickly became determined to improve his physical ability. This led him on a path of self education, taking an interest in anatomy and many fitness disciplines.
After moving to London in 1912, Joseph was placed in a concentration camp by British authorities during WW1. While in camp, he taught wrestling and self defence and realised the impact this made, both physically and mentally. After being transferred to a second camp, Joseph began refining the exercises he taught to his fellow inmates, referring to his work as “Contrology” – the complete coordination of body, mind and spirit.
We now call his technique PILATES. Migrating to America around 1925, Joseph met his wife Clara, who also took a keen interest in Contrology. They soon established a studio and many followers, who continue to carry on his legacy and are referred to as “The Pilates Elders”. Joseph passed away in 1967 and said himself, “people won’t understand the brilliance of my work for 50 years”.
