Alex

(Physiotherapist)

Alex’s caring and compassionate nature goes hand-in-hand with her professional approach to health and wellness. Alex’s journey into physiotherapy began in her teens when she was diagnosed with scoliosis- her curvature significantly worsened over time which resulted in extensive back surgery. Instead of letting this taint her life, this is where her dream began- Alex was driven into physiotherapy through her own experience with scoliosis and she is now passionate about improving conservative management for scoliosis and post operative care in Australia.

With 5-year experience in musculoskeletal private practice, Alex enjoys using Clinical Pilates as complementary treatment to general physiotherapy to assist her in treating and managing sport-related injuries, postural dysfunctions or the day-to-day aches and pains. She has gained international training and experience in the field of scoliosis management, including being trained in the Schroth method in Spain, and more recently completed the APPI Clinical Pilates Instructor training. By creating a positive, caring and motivating environment Alex aims to provide a long-term and sustainable solution to your health and wellness routine.

With thirteen years experience of instructing Pilates, Laurinda has the ability to see the body as a whole and to assess each individual to see anatomically the areas that need attention. Developing these weaker areas in her clients builds stronger bodies, alignment and sense of overall wellbeing in everyone who attends her sessions.

Kim

(Pilates Instructor)

Kim has always had a passion for health, exercise and the way movement heals the body. She learned the importance of a balanced lifestyle and healthy body when she was younger and began dancing.

With a successful career in marketing and sales, Kim realised that something was missing from her life.

At this point she was learning about rehabilitation and ways drawn to the way the body can heal itself through movement. So that was that – she decided to pursue her new journey and become a qualified Polestar Pilates Practitioner. And we are so glad she did!

Her passion lies in helping people discover how they can alleviate pain, restore healthy movement patterns and work towards a more aligned, strong and balanced mind, body and spirit.


Loves: Sun, surf and sand between the toes! Almond croissants and a good cup of coffee. Walking - could walk for miles! And Pilates - helping clients reach their potential by connecting mind and body.
