Tina Pollard

Pilates Teacher

Brief Info

With a background in dance and trained from a young age in all facets of dance, Tina became a professional performer working extensively in Australia and overseas, before turning her talents to teaching. She is a sought-after and highly respected dance teacher (with a specialty in Tap) both in her native Adelaide and for the last 20 years, here in Sydney.
In 2007 Tina discovered Pilates and a whole new way of moving! Falling in love with this incredible exercise philosophy, she soon became qualified in all areas, gaining a Diploma of Professional Pilates through Polestar. Tina has been instructing Pilates Mat, Reformer, and Studio for the past 10 years at various studios on the North Shore. She was chosen to be a Mentor for the Cert IV Mat program at Polestar Pilates and has been encouraging and assisting students there for the past 5 years. While she loves all areas of Pilates instruction, she has a special passion for Reformer, finding it an amazing tool for assistance and challenge to the repertoire.
Tina is also a Master Trainer for bootybarre – a wonderful barre program from the US that combines Pilates Dance & Fitness into a fast-paced energetic workout with integrity.
Tina believes a Pilates environment should be a place of inclusion, positive energy, and friendly encouragement. She also believes strongly that people of every age and ability will benefit from the connection of mind body and spirit and the power of movement!
