Initial Consultation and Clinical Pilates
An initial consultation is recommended before commencing SMART Clinical Pilates to evaluate your physical health condition so that an appropriate program or class can be selected.
Specific exercises are carefully prescribed by an allied health professional creating a safe and effective exercise program.
This will meet the needs of the individual for treatment of a wide range of physical conditions. These conditions could include pain in the lower back, neck, shoulder, hips/pelvis, knee, ankle and also other weaknesses.
Clinical Pilate’s programs will also benefit the athlete looking to enhance performance through the improvement of both essential movement and range of motion building strength.
This will assist in preventing injury due to the repetitive nature of an athlete’s sport.
SMART Pilate’s one-on-one clinical sessions are tailored to accelerate the progression of your rehabilitation and sport specific strength building.
Yin Yoga is particularly healing for those with a busy mind and hectic schedule. It provides an opportunity to slow down and access a calm state. The passive, long-held nature of the postures gives time for a deeper journey to unfold, a journey into the meditative aspects of yoga and a bridge to living mindfully. It’s also most soothing if you’re feeling tight and sore after a tough training session. From a physical perspective, the focus is on developing or restoring length and range of motion. This style of yoga works the deeper levels of the body, heart and mind; the connective tissues of the ligaments, fascia, joints and bones; and the energetic channels of the meridians, nerves and blood system. It’s a wonderful antidote to modern life.
Rise & Shine
In the Rise & Shine class we start you moving and send you out ready to face the day with a smile on your face and a spring in your step!
Mindful movement with plenty of cues helps you to flow between poses safely with good alignment. We hold each pose for a few breaths, enough time to take awareness into the body and understand the sensations and restrictions we might be feeling. Through breath, awareness and movement, we start to move energy around the body. From a physical perspective, the focus is on the muscles, both strengthening and lengthening.
Vinyasa Yoga is a creative and intelligent flow style that can be challenging but easily adapted with modifications for students at different levels. Again there is an emphasis on alignment, form and safety; but flowing a little faster between the poses whilst maintaining a steady, even breath.
Classes may be general, including a little everything; thematic with a deeper focus on one specific area of the body; or working up to a peak pose or awareness of a particular energy centre. A thorough warm-up is followed by creative standing flow sequences. We can, optionally, work towards inversions and arm-balances before returning to seated sequences and ending with a guided relaxation.

When a friend took me to my first yoga class I found something wonderful – a point of calm like the eye of a storm. I fell in love with yoga for its beauty, grace and strength; and for how it made me feel, together with the useful techniques I could use off the mat. Yoga became my anchor. It continues to give me perspective and balance. My experiences inspired me to teach and, after a number of years of practice, I gave up a long career in the technology sector and committed to becoming a teacher. It is a great joy to be able to share the healing and transforming benefits of yoga with my students.
It is my goal to ensure that my classes are welcoming, accessible and inclusive, supporting people in achieving health and wellbeing. Whether you are a skeptic, a high performance athlete or think you’re too stiff to try yoga, please put all of that aside and give it a try!
