ABOUT US

KYLIE’S WORDS:

“My focus as a Pilates instructor is to listen to my clients and assist them in reaching their goals, whether this be gaining flexibility, strengthening their bodies, injury rehabilitation, increasing body type awareness and improving self-confidence, pre-natal preparation, post-natal rehabilitation, or just simply having having your “me time”. I am here as a “partner” to coach you through your fitness journey.”

MY PILATES JOURNEY

For most of my life Pilates has been something I’ve found intriguing. My journey started when I felt I needed an alternative workout routine that made me feel my most confident self. I had spent lots of time and resources on the ‘conventional’ exercise routines, cardio, and weightlifting, and went as far as studying to be a personal trainer. After trial and error and realising that I hadn’t achieved the figure I wanted, I decided to start with Pilates. My path immediately changed when I realised the power behind Pilates and how it changed my perspective of my body and the approach to being healthy.

Now fully functional and changing lives since ’05, training with Pilates Guru will leave you feeling stronger, lengthened, and leaner, as well as, feeling relief of physical tension and mental stress. I want my clients to set a new standard for their body and what it deserves – to treat it with love and care because confidence and beauty starts from within.

Whether you want to feel healthier, stronger, happier, or sexier, Pilates Guru has a class for you!

“The knowledge I’ve gained through my teachings in the studio was something that I was inspired to pass onto others, which is when I decided to become a pilates instructor.”
