Julia Potter - Receptionist

Julia Potter

Pilates Teacher

“Change happens through movement & movement heals.” Joseph Pilates

 

Julia is a Polestar certified Pilates Matwork instructor in constant awe of the transformative power of movement. Initially taking classes to alleviate general aches & pains, she found Pilates to be much more than a system of physical exercise; rather, an holistic approach to whole body health & wellbeing:

 

“Joseph Pilates referred to his method as “the complete coordination of mind, body & spirit.” It’s not just about ‘going for the burn,’ it’s about how you feel on all levels; physically, mentally, emotionally, & beyond. It is a dialogue – a connection – between all aspects of self. You can tell what is working, what isn’t, imbalances in the body, mental blocks, emotional pulls… Pilates offers the willing student precious moments of self-reflection & an opportunity for self-improvement. The exercises don’t necessarily become easier; as you progress you delve deeper into the nuances of each & learn how they relate to, & build upon, each other. Pilates is a continual process of refinement.”

 

Julia teaches a style of Pilates that progresses small, isolated movements into full body integrative sequences. Emphasis is on technique & precise movement, with the ultimate aim of establishing efficient movement patterns which then carry over into everyday life. Classes are engaging & immersive, with changing choreography & options for modification, allowing you to work at your own level of challenge. Expect to feel taller, stronger, lighter & more confident in your own skin.

 

Julia teaches Mat Pilates on Saturday mornings, 8.30am – 9.20am. To book your class, head here.

Steph Stack. Clarity Massage and Wellness

Steph Stack - In Fine Fettle

Pilates Teacher

Steph Stack is a Polestar certified Mat Pilates Instructor who identifies strongly with the holistic and integrative nature of Pilates. As a qualified naturopath, the seamless integration of physical, mental, and spiritual health is not only a goal for Steph personally, but one that she seeks to support her clients in accomplishing, too. Steph believes that Pilates provides the perfect balance of challenge, development, concentration, and relaxation to nourish the body and the mind, but is also a chance to have a good bit of fun and get that sweet muscle burn too!

 

“Pilates became the form of exercise that I could always come back to regardless of my level of fitness, because the nature of it intuitively guides your body to seeking restorative challenge and balance. It’s an enjoyable way to become connected and engaged with your body, but also notice effective change which carries through to your every-day!”

 

Steph S teaches Mat Pilates on Wednesday evenings 7pm – 8pm, and Thursday mornings 7am – 8am. To book your class, head HERE
