Louise is a Chartered Physiotherapist who has been teaching Pilates for 7 years. She completed her training through the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI) and regularly completes further training. Her classes are suitable for mixed abilities and her physiotherapy background means that she can cater for clients who have longstanding musculoskeletal issues such as back pain or who are getting over injuries or surgery.
Louise uses small equipment in her matwork classes such as the magic circle, weighted balls and foam rollers.
Louise is also introducing a High Intensity Interval Training Pilates class at The Manor. This uses Pilates principles while carrying out some classic gym moves and specifically paired Pilates moves in between the higher intensity exercises.
Louise`s classes are informal and friendly with an emphasis on good technique and having fun!
Please contact Louise if you are interested in attending a class or would like to know more about Pilates. Smaller groups or 1:1 sessions can also be arranged.
