I discovered Pilates over 15 years ago and found it to be the one exercise that truly shaped my body. I love that Pilates strengthens and corrects my body from all the other sports I’ve dabbled in throughout my life; golf, triathlons, running, soccer, circuit training, cycling and horse riding. I also credit pre-natal Pilates for my body’s strength post babies. We should all start back with Pilates. Reformer inspired me to learn to teach Pilates and make it accessible for everyone.

Holistic health has been a passion of mine for many years. Inspiring friends and family to change their diets and home environment through wholefoods and low tox living is what drives me. My Greek heritage is one of large families and getting back to basics with healing food. Alongside this journey, after moving to the beaches a few years ago, I discovered Pilates and was amazed at how in conjunction with eating right I was able to feel strong in my body for the first time since having 4 children.

Louise fell in love with Pilates over 10 years go after moving to Sydney and took the plunge to teach 3 years ago. Diagnosed with scoliosis as a teenager she was put in a brace 22 hours a day for 2 years. Her dance background helped to keep her mobile but she still had a lot of pain. Her fascination with muscles and movement led her to Pilates and realise its benefits. She can now move freely, is stronger and relatively pain free. She loves seeing people get stronger and for them to notice a difference in everyday life.
