LAURA KAVANAGH

Pilates & Power Plate & Massage
Brief info

Laura’s background as a Soft Tissue Therapist means she brings to Pilates a solid knowledge of anatomy and years of experience in observing and assessing posture and movement. She loves to “read” bodies, giving feedback and assistance where it’s needed to help clients get the best from their bodies.

Laura believes that when it comes to your own body, YOU are the expert. So whatever your goals - to improve mobility and posture, gain symptomatic relief, move beyond injury back into confident movement or simply to relax, unwind and de-stress, Laura will listen to your needs and work with you to achieve your goals – whether that be through massage, Pilates or a combination of both.

Laura comes from Canberra where she had her own business providing Soft Tissue Therapy and Pilates mat classes. She was also involved in Canberra Institute of Technology’s Soft Tissue Therapy program, as a teacher of anatomy, stretching, posture and palpation. When she’s not in the clinic or the studio, you’ll find her outdoors jogging, swimming, cycling or indoors cooking or plotting her next travel adventure!

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.
