Pilates & Power Plate Teacher
Brief info

Lissie's passion for Pilates started in 1988 when her mother injured her ankle and was rehabilitated with some simple Pilates exercises recommended by a Physiotherapist. Impressed with the rapid and successful recovery rate, she decided to expand her interest in Pilates through community college course. Practising the "New York Style" Pilates for many years, Lissie came to Polestar Pilates in 2002 and was introduced to Polestar Pilates by Catherine Giannitto.

In 2007 it was timely that Lissie studied the mat qualification and started teaches classes in 2008. Lissie's background is an 18-year career in fashion styling for TV, magazines and celebrities.

"Pilates was my stress release and a way to stay physically strong to carry all those frocks around from location to location. Long days on set led to back problems, so Pilates was my saviour."

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.
