Following many years of ballet training and the completion of a full time commercial dance course in 1999, Shae taught dancers of all ages at ballet and performing arts schools around Melbourne. Through her own experiences with injury and lower back pain Shae was then introduced to the Pilates Method in early 2002 and was impressed by the vast improvement that Pilates had on her overall health.
She completed her first Pilates qualification in 2005, the Australian Pilates Method Association (APMA) Instructor’s course at the Physicalmind Institute, and has since gained a wealth of experience working at various private studios in Melbourne. She is constantly upgrading her Pilates qualifications by partaking in further educational courses.
In 2016 Shae completed her Bachelor of Primary Education at Deakin University and now spends two days a week in the classroom. Shae hopes to foster an awareness of physical and mental wellbeing in her young students, as she does with her clients in the relaxed and caring environment of the Pilates studio.
Natalie fell in love with Pilates and its benefits and went on to graduate from the APMA Pilates course in 2017.
Natalie is an avid mover and has a special interest in using the Pilates method to support the lymphatic system.
Pilates Instructor, Personal Trainer
Natalie discovered Pilates through her Physiotherapist after multiple soft tissue injuries.
With Natalie’s Personal Training background, heavy weight lifting was resulting in a lack of mobility, and she found regular Pilates Classes very beneficial in keeping her moving and active. “The Pilates Studio was a whole new world from the gym and became highly addictive!”
After experiencing the benefits of Pilates, Natalie decided she wanted to further develop her fitness knowledge and qualifications and learn how to teach Pilates.
“I’m living proof of what Pilates can do! I love seeing the benefits of Pilates in all my clients – both the young and the more mature – and seeing results such as improved posture, strength, and balance. I have a passion for educating people about their bodies, and I’m proud to say being a Pilates Instructor this is the most satisfying job I’ve ever had!
We’re living well into our 90’s these days and we have to maintain our bodies for a huge period of time, so we should invest in our health and wellbeing and not abuse the body we live in.”
