Brief info

Daniel Gschwind is an overseas trained physiotherapist from Germany with over 8 years of experience in private practice and orthopaedic rehabilitation.

After completing his physiotherapy degree in 2011, Daniel gained additional knowledge for the profession by completing a Bachelor’s degree in “Health and Management” for Health Care Professionals in 2015 and achieved international accreditation in Australia in 2018.

Prior to that, he worked long term in an orthopaedic rehabilitation centre in Germany, where he was working in an interdisciplinary team with various health professionals, specialising in hip, knee, spine and shoulder injuries and operations. His treatment philosophy is based on the individual needs of patients focusing on a manual hands-on approach, offering a range of effective soft tissue techniques, joint mobilisations and specific exercise prescriptions.

Playing competitive soccer in Germany as a teenager, he received physiotherapy on a regular basis, where he has gained a great understanding of the role of sport specific exercise and stretching in both treating and preventing injuries.

When not working, Daniel combines his passion for photography, travelling and being outdoors, while spending time with his young family.

Carrie – Polestar Education

Carrie – Polestar Education,

Why did I choose Polestar Australia? My education/working background is I have a Bachelor of Nursing. I have been a stay at home Mum with three kids for the past 12 years. I was looking for professional development in a Pilates training program with a high level of training to expand my existing knowledge and an education that focuses on rehabilitation. I spoke to several health professionals who recommend Polestar Australia highly, exactly for that reason. The detail and depth in the Polestar repertoire have far exceeded my expectations. And a bonus along the way is that I have got to meet so many other health professionals and like-minded people with the same passion for Pilates and human movement.

I have received a well-rounded and thorough education and foundation for my Pilates instruction from Polestar. I have learnt so much and I can see all the benefits of the Polestar principles and exercises in my clients, which makes me want to come back for more learning opportunities. I would highly recommend Polestar education to anyone who is looking for the best pilates training program, that enables us to teach our clients to move safely, efficiently and the way we are intended to move.
