The same workout that provides background conditioning for medal wins at national track and field will help you too. So come and join us!

You don't need previous experience. I'll guide you through every step and make it fun; just like when I'm coaching children's athletics (and believe me that's fun)!

If you have any fitness or wellness goals I would be keen to know so that I can build that into the session for you.

Is pilates as good as it's made out to be? - Yes; if you are patient and open to change then it's magic. It's kept me going (that's kind of a miracle). And it'll keep you going too.

A little more demanding than the earlier 6:00pm time but still the same fun and learning applies, I'll guide you through and make it fun!

As always let me know any special need or niggle and I can build the class around a theme that's just right for you!

Therapy and private tuition
By appointment (contact me).
at 118 Carnarvon Street (how to get there).


We provide
  • Bowen therapy
  • Foot joint mobilization
  • Postural awareness
  • Trigger point massage and instruction in therapeutic stretching
  • Self massage (it's effective and safe, and saves you time and trips to the physio and masseur)
  • Exercise programs
Our approach is to coach you to manage your problem
  • achieve postural rebalancing.
    90% of rebalancing is by letting go of destructive tension while 10% is by consciously activating lazy muscles.
  • maintain muscles
    most exercises emphasize strengthening but if a muscle is sore you need self massage and maintenance exercises and drills. It's different and it's effective: you get a big return for minimum effort
  • self massage (often by use of a tennis ball)
    Self massage brings massive gains in pain free movement and athletic achievement. Once you've learned self massage you can do it any time and it won't cost you a cent!
