My name is Brodie and I am a mum to 3 crazy children who keep me on my toes! I am super excited to have opened a studio here in Ourimbah (with the help of my amazing partner Nick!). I love all things movement, languages (and talking!!!), craft (especially fabric!) and travelling (although that doesn't happen nearly enough!) - and it appears exclamation marks! Lol.
In regards to my personal Pilates journey, I discovered the method following a traumatic car accident. It has help me move again and significantly reduce my overall disability and pain levels. While I was rehabbing from my accident (which included learning to walk again), I became inspired to help others regain their quality of life. I have an Adv Dip of Nutrition, a Cert IV in Fitness, Pre/Post Natal Qualifications from Preggibellies and Pilates and a Cert IV and Diploma in Pilates from Breathe Education and am currently studying another Diploma in Pilates from Pilates ITC. I am however always keen to always increase my knowledge and love to study and do workshops! I have been teaching solely Pilates since early 2017 and have been loving this journey and being part of this community. If you haven't given Pilates a go yet, come try it out. I look forward to seeing you in the studio!
Nikketa first started taking Pilates classes at the age of 12 to help with her ballet technique and strengthen her natural hyper flexibility. After graduating from the Victorian Collage of the Arts Secondary School and completing her bachelor at the Victorian Collage of the Arts, Nikketa studied Australian Pilates Method through Physicalmind Institute in Melbourne.
Throughout her 18years teaching she worked and managed some of Melbourne most prestigious studios. Her passion is the diversity of people Pilates can benefit. From students, top athletes, retires, actors, patients with serious physical conditions and those looking to change their physic, Nikketa has taught them all.
Now living on the coast, Nikketa has two young boys who keep her on her toes. Come take a class with her. They are traditional whole body workouts designed to challenge both body and mind.
Ally is passionate about health and wellbeing. Her love for Pilates started during her rehab following a knee reconstruction at age 16. Pilates created the perfect foundation to strengthen her technique, control, co-ordination and flexibility allowing her to return back to competitive dancing. Since then she has continued to enjoy the wonderful benefits Pilates has offer. In 2019, Ally completed her Cert IV in Pilates for matwork and reformer at Breathe Education.
Her additional interest in health promotion has seen her complete a Bachelor of Global Studies with a Major in Health at UTS in 2019. Currently she is studying a Master of Public Health at UTS.
Ally aims to empower her clients, drawing from her diverse background in health and dance to share the gentle but powerful approach of strength and conditioning through Pilates.
"I was dancing for fun from aged 4 so movement has always been a major part in my life. I started Pilates in about 2005, I think. It was perfect to help keep my body strong and toned.
In 2014 I injured my knee. I was unable to dance or continue with Pilates. Being a very active person to barely being able to move, put me in a not good headspace. It took forever to heal with weekly dry needling and massage.
In 2015, I saw an exercise physiologist, who said “you may never dance like you used to”. I said “as long as I can do Pilates again, I will be happy”. So we began some basic Pilates exercises.
5 years ago, I moved to the Central Coast, I needed exercise back in my life to de-stress. So I started doing Pilates once a week and now it’s to everyday. It’s so hard to describe but it’s the best feeling ever, being able to move my body again!
Last year I started a life long dream I have always had and completed my cert IV Pilates training in contemporary teaching and methodology and I am currently completing my diploma hours with Tensegrity Training."
