Tania Jennings - Pilates Instructor

Having had a diverse career in the past working as a nanny, promotional model, beautician, business owner and various roles in the corporate world, one thing that has stayed consistent throughout is my love for health and fitness. I have always been involved in fitness, mainly in strength training, running, martial arts, or high intensity training.

Having a setback with my health in 2012, and ongoing lower back pain, I decided to take a more gentle approach to health and fitness and introduced regular Pilates classes into my routine.
This helped me discover a whole new perspective and outlook towards my health and fitness, incorporating a mind, body and soul connection, which are the authentic principles of Pilates.
It was a natural progression to want to help others reap the many benefits that Pilates has brought to my life, therefore I decided to complete a Diploma of professional Pilates Instruction.
Learning about correct breathing patterns, alignment of the body and posture, the deep core stabilising muscles and pelvic floor are just some of the basic foundations that you will learn in Pilates that will be continually built on and incorporated with each exercise. 
I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to help others with their own ailments and assist in getting the best out of their bodies, whether the goal is to be pain free, experience more flexibility and range of movement, better posture, stronger core or just to experience the many overall benefits that Pilates will bring.
