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.
