MEET THE CORE PILATES TEAM

Tash

Owner & Semi-Private Instructor

Why will you enjoy my classes / what’s my style?
I teach the Semi-Private Classes. These classes are tailored to each client depending on any injuries, health concerns or personal fitness goals. Each session is aimed to be a whole body workout for clients (when possible).

What made you get into Pilates and become an instructor?
I always had a sore back from my early 20’s & regularly saw a Chiro to provide some temporary relief. I tried Studio Pilates (on equipment, not mat) and within a week my back was better & I no longer needed a Chiro. Pilates on equipment is the only form of exercise I truly enjoy. I thought surely there are others in town who would also benefit from Pilates, so after my last pregnancy I studied my Diploma in Pilates and opened a studio from home. Within 8 months I had signed a leased for a bigger space-which is where our studio is today. It turns out there are many of you in town that love Pilates too!

Bonus Info
I am mum to 3 little Cherubs Cooper, Flynn & Georgia & am a firm believer that Nutella should only ever be eaten with a spoon, and I absolutely hate running.

When can you join Tash’s classes?

Nikki

Group Reformer Instructor

Why will you enjoy my classes / what’s my style? My classes are designed to work the whole body with a different focus each week, some weeks will be slow and focused on control while others will be more about getting the heart rate up.

What made you get into Pilates and become an instructor?When I first tried Reformer Pilates I loved that it was suitable for every body. I became an instructor to challenge myself with something new that could create a positive impact on the lives of the clients.

Chelsea

Group Reformer Instructor

Why will you enjoy my classes / what’s my style?
You will definitely feel challenged for a Monday morning. I hope my classes are a great way for you to start your week.

What made you get into Pilates and become an instructor?
I got into Pilates as it was an exercise that I’d practised for most of my life and I wanted something different in reformer classes. I loved Core Pilates and everyone here so I decided I’d give teaching a go as a challenge for myself. I love seeing people grow and progress with their ability to move and strengthen their bodies.

Bonus Info
I started Ballet dancing when I was 3. I changed to Gymnastics when I was 8 and finally gave it up at 15.

When can you join Chelsea’s classes?
Monday mornings 6am & 7am.

Tracey

Group Reformer Instructor

Why will you enjoy my classes / what’s my style?In my classes you’ll come to love the challenge and slight push to build strength & balance. Expect the slow burn, rise in your heart rate & sometimes even a laugh.

What made you get into Pilates and become an instructor?
When given the opportunity right here in Singleton to complete the course to become an instructor, I couldn’t pass it up. I saw it as a great opportunity to help others to feel the benefits of moving the body, build strength, balance & challenge the mind and body.

Bonus Info
When I’m not working you’ll find me hanging out with my young adult children, usually enjoying great food. I believe food & sleep are underrated.

When can you join Tracey’s classes?

Marney

Group Reformer Instructor

Why will you enjoy my classes / what’s my style?
I hope my passion shines through in the combinations of exercises I choose to challenge your mind and body and inspire you to love Pilates as much as I do. I enjoy incorporating a variety of exercises, including some drawn from my gym background, and a range of props to enhance your experiences. I like to combine classical and contemporary practice to keep interest level high.

What made you get into Pilates and become an instructor?
From my very first Reformer class here at Core Pilates, I was hooked! Despite having taught in the fitness industry in the past, I was astounded at how the focus on creating harmony between body, breath and mind, along with low impact but high intensity movement, is powerfully transformative. I genuinely believe that there is nothing as effective as Reformer classes to safely build strength and improve flexibility, balance, posture and coordination. I hope to change the lives of others as the amazing instructors here changed mine. I want clients to feel the same way I do when I participate in Reformer classes – energised, strong and empowered.

Bonus Info
I have a particular passion for women’s health, particularly middle-aged women.
