Pilates & Power Plate Teacher
Brief info

Karen first discovered Pilates in an effort to become fit after the birth of her second child. Over the course of 4 years, she found her posture, muscle strength and body awareness improved way beyond any expectation. Pilates helped her prepare and recover from a kidney donation that she gave to her sister. Previously, Karen qualified as an aerobics instructor with VICFIT in Melbourne before moving to Sydney. It was this early introduction to the fitness industry and her passion for Pilates that allowed Karen to pursue her training in becoming a Pilates instructor.

The decision to seek more knowledge led Karen to study Anatomy and Physiology at Nature Care College, gaining a distinction in Anatomy 1a. At the same time, she became a qualified studio instructor after completing the course with Pollstar International.

Karen has a strong commitment to continue gathering knowledge and experience in the Pilates field. To bring this knowledge to the class for each individual and to ultimately enhance their physical + mental balance.

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.
