Amanda has been passionate about Pilates ever since her introductory mat class more than a decade ago. She was amazed by the simplicity and effectiveness that this type of exercise had on her body. Muscles got leaner and stronger, flexibility was enhanced, posture became lengthened and breath seemed to be more expansive than ever. Following her heart, she decided to switch careers to become a Pilates instructor. After completing her extensive training with Polestar Pilates, her love for the method led her to become a Principal Educator and Examiner for their teacher-training program. In addition to running her studio in Peregian Beach, Sunshine Coast, she travels the country conducting teacher-training courses, workshops and master-classes, sharing her wealth of experience with students in order to create the next generation of powerful and inspiring Pilates teachers.
To complement her Pilates, Amanda is also qualified in Shiatsu massage. She believes there is immense power in healing through touch and balancing energy flow. Her unique fusion of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) principles and Pilates enhances the overall experience that her clients receive.
Always endeavouring to improve her offering, she is also a Franklin Method Educator and as such is able to pass on essential information about the body and how it is designed to move efficiently.
Amanda’s holistic approach delivers personalised sessions to a broad range of clients from novice to advanced. She successfully achieves results with those experiencing chronic pain, pre & postnatal conditioning, sports athletes or for anyone seeking general wellness and wellbeing.
