REFORMER PILATES & BARRE INSTRUCTOR
Megan’s interest in dance and human movement led her to Pilates, as she found there was lack of balance in her own body, evident in her gym training and dancing. From there her journey through the fitness and wellness industry has been very diverse. In 2003 I did my first Pilates training course and started practicing in a commercial environment in 2004. In 2006, after having her first child, her focus changed into group training and making Pilates more accessible through small groups using auxiliary equipment. During this period I also did personal home visits with clients. These clients varied from general fitness, joint replacement rehabilitation to post cancer recovery. It was an enormously fulfilling period in her career. Over the last 8 years her journey has also extended into the very sought after Barre technique.
