Michelle is a Certified STOTT Pilates instructor and Physiotherapist from Perth, Western Australia.
Michelle was introduced to the benefits of Clinical Pilates 8 years ago when she started working as a Physiotherapist. She saw the potential in fusing her traditional rehabilitation exercise prescription principles with Pilates techniques. Following this she found the blend of the two enhanced her client outcomes, shortened client recovery times and aided in future injury prevention. Since then, Michelle has spent the last 5 years learning and perfecting her repertoir of skills through the STOTT Pilates, the Franklin Method of Imagery and concepts developed by Tom Meyers and his Anatomy Trains fascia release methods. Her holistic approach to rehabilitation made her a “go-to” therapist for all injuries and rehabilitation needs back home in Australia.
Michelle’s keen interest in all things Snow is what has been the driving force for her deciding to permanently reside here in Vancouver. Apart from her skiing background she has worked with State and National League athletes in Soccer, Netball and Football (AFL). Along with extensive experience working with Marathon runners, Triathletes, Iron Men and Powerlifters.
Michelle has a very hands on approach to her Pilates classes due to her expert knowledge in anatomy and myofascial connectivity and strongly believes in the power of mindfulness and the mind-body approach to holistic recovery.
