Pilates & Power Plate Teacher
Brief info

Karin-Anne’s passion for Pilates began in 2008 when she was first introduced to this amazing exercise method. When relocating from South Africa to Australia, in early 2010, she used this opportunity to redirect her energy towards something meaningful and rewarding in the Pilates field. She has completed her Mat and Props certification with Polestar Asia in Hong Kong followed by the full comprehensive Studio Diploma with Polestar Australia in Sydney.

Karin-Anne combines years of competitive sports and fitness with the joy of teaching and helping people, with a focus on improving their health and lifestyle. She has a passion for nature and finished her qualification in 2007 in Nature Conservation, a field that she was later lecturing in before leaving South Africa. Her experience with Nature Conservation made her aware of the importance of being in touch with one’s natural surroundings.
She is dedicated to her students and her teaching style is warm and adaptive, but she likes to add in a good challenging twist. She also likes the challenge of targeting specific objectives with students and helping them fulfil their goals accordingly.
Karin-Anne will also be completing a diploma in Nutrition in the course of the coming year.

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.
