Jenna’s love for sport started at a young age from playing Netball and Touch Football at a representative level throughout her schooling years at Stella Maris College, Manly.

Whilst representing her country in Touch Football, she found that Pilates was the only form of training that assisted with the balance of intense exercise whilst still trying to strengthen and lengthen her body. The benefits from Pilates practice stopped the reoccurrence of the injuries she was experiencing when playing.

After joining the reception and administration team at Polestar and seeing the benefits of daily practice she decided that she wanted to study and be able to help people in the way that Pilates and the instructors at Polestar had helped her.

Transitioning from the corporate world to motherhood was always going to be a turning point in Sarah’s life. After the birth of her first child, she decided to leave a career in financial services and turn her passion into a new career – Pilates.

Helping people achieve their goals has been a constant throughout her career. Training with Polestar Pilates gave her a wealth of hands-on experience and empowerment to help people achieve their physical goals.

Sarah has been practising Pilates since 2003 and it has never failed her – helping her participate in half marathons, adventure racing and triathlons without injury and keeping her body strong and supple through two pregnancies.

“I feel like Pilates has taped my body back together after each child! I don’t think I could endure the long physical hours of motherhood without it. If you are committed and believe in what you do you will see results every time.

frequently asked questions

As each person comes with different needs and backgrounds, we recommend that your first session be a private session. During your first private session your practitioner will assess your functional movement, and introduce you to the principles of Pilates including the breathing techniques and apparatus. This session will deepen your awareness of your strengths, weaknesses and imbalances which will inform the types of classes and Pilates training you choose to pursue. Your practitioner will help you determine if more private sessions are needed, and when you are ready for semi-private sessions or group classes.

We recommend that absolute beginners take 2-3 private sessions before advancing to semi-private and group mat classes. You can start Pilates by taking mat classes if you do not have any major injuries. Please discuss this with a Pilates teacher before your first class.

If you are new to Pilates, but you are used to exercising with your bodyweight, we recommend doing 3-5 Mat or Reformer Intro classes. These classes are designed to introduce you to the Pilates method foundations, the breath and neutral spine positions in a slower paced class. Once you feel comfortable you will easily progress to Mat or Reformer Beginner level.

If you have practiced Pilates before but haven’t done it for a while, start with a Level 1 and progress to Level 2 when you feel strong and confident. Discuss with your teacher if you are unsure.

If you have injuries, start your rehabilitation with a private session. We offer a full postural assessment with our Physiotherapist. Once you are comfortable with the Pilates terminology and exercise techniques, you can combine both machine sessions and group mat classes for a varied program.
