Julia is passionate about Pilates. In 2008 she completed her Pilates training with The Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI). Since then she has trained in Ante & Post Natal Pilates and Pilates & Neurology. She loves teaching Pilates and can do this 1:1, in a small group or to a larger class.

The APPI method of Pilates is regulated by a code of conduct and all instructors must pass theoretical and practical examination. Class size is restricted to ensure clients receive the individual attention they need. Julia firmly believes that Clinical Pilates can help people recover from & stay injury free, enhance athletic performance, improve spinal function and manage long term health complaints.

Julia can also perform acupuncture as part of her Physiotherapy treatment and is registered with the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists. She is also qualified in Kinesio Taping, a skill she uses frequently for her volleyball team mates!
