Joanne’s passion for pilates began in early 2000 as a young dancer. Since completing her first instructorship course she has immersed herself in continuing education and travelled to New York City (the home of pilates) to discover the roots of the method. After updating her training through Polestar Pilates to a Diploma of Professional Pilates Instruction she was asked to join their mentoring programme. Joanne has also completed a Certificate IV in Massage Therapy Practice and uses these skills during studio classes to help clients get the most from their sessions.
The mind/ body connection has really become clear to Jo after many years of teaching and she has witnessed many of her clients transform mentally and physically after finally feeling in control of their bodies. Jo loves the way that the subtleties of Pilates can be applied to everyday living especially improving posture and increasing freedom in movement.
Joanne is passionate about helping her clients realise their goals and regards pilates as an ongoing part of life. The freedom of movement that can be achieved through pilates has positive outcomes that surpass the physical. She brings a positive outlook to every session and strives to have every client leave happier, more relaxed and feeling stronger than when they arrived.
