i am one of those people who just loves the work that i do, teaching others how to move with ease and to find true posture. i strongly believe that personal mobility can and should be pain free, this is what drives me.
i was introduced to pilates during my time as a classical ballet dancer, this naturally evolved from simply enhancing my own strength and conditioning to teaching. i couldn't believe how my ballet body responded and i was instantly drawn into this incredible method of mentally focused body movement.
my interest in passing on the experience i had so benefitted from led to me gaining a diploma in studio and mat work pilates through the national pilates training program. my experience is now 8 years young and covers teaching and learning from afl teams, personal trainers, rehabilitation (including pre/post surgery) diastasis (abdominal separation) healing, pre post pregnancy and educating at schools for the younger population.

Hayley - child care
I provide onsite childcare for your children at Mountain Pilates. I have two young children myself (ages 2 and 5) and understand the need to know that they are safe and nurtured at all time, this is something i'm passionate about. I completed my diploma in early childhood education and care in 2016 and as part of this I completed placements in local early learning centre's where I cared for children from 6 weeks of age . I am also an active member and group leader of a local playgroup which I have been involved with for the past 5 years. My philosophy is to create a secure and fun environment where children can feel safe, happy and included. I am more than happy to work with you to ensure that your children are comfortable while under my care so that you can make the most of your time in class
