Pilates


This class is taught by:

Maree Rodger

Maree is the owner of Inspired Pilates and Yoga.
A Personal Trainer with a dance background, she was first introduced to Pilates at age 16 as a way to improve her ballet technique. 
Maree has taught many forms of movement and exercise including childrens Ballet, Tap, and Jazz classes, adults Pole Dancing classes, and Bootcamp.
At Inspired, Maree choreographs and teaches the Barre Belle classes, and you will also find her teaching Pilates regularly, and once in blue moon you might catch her teaching Yoga - though she prefers to leave Yoga to her talented instructors!
A music nerd and a crazy cat lady, Maree can talk about both subjects at length, be aware that if you ask about her cats, there is no short answer! 
See if you can pick up on Maree's ridiculous pop culture references during her Barre Belle classes.
 

Tamsin Philipps

Trying Pilates many years ago as a way to get ‘a bit toned’, Tamsin soon realised the movements required an amazing amount of control and precision to do them well. Practicing Pilates brings a new element to exercise, with better body awareness, an internal focus and a strengthening of the mind with the body. Falling hook, line & sinker for the Pilates method, Tamsin knew the next step in her journey was to be able to pass this on to others.

Moving with her family from the UK to Australia in 2015, Tamsin’s second task, after finding somewhere to live, was to do her Pilates training with Polestar. Completing the rehab course and becoming a Pilates practitioner has become a perfect complement to her other work as an Occupational Therapist working with people with neurological conditions.

As a Pilates instructor and OT, Tamsin has a strong focus on balance – whether that’s within the body, the mind, or generally in life (or is it the Libran in her demanding it??). Sessions are designed to provide you with a full body workout whilst also targeting specific areas. These include the breath, control, body awareness, functional movement integration and more, to improve our everyday experiences with our bodies – better balance, reduced stiffness and weakness, and learning how to breathe well. You should feel challenged every session – physically & mentally, and hopefully walk out feeling a little bit stronger, a little bit taller and with a smile on your face.

Kathy Baratta

Kathy has been in and out of the fitness industry for over 20 years after obtaining her Bachelor of Sports Science, Exercise Science Degree from UNSW. She started doing pilates as a student at Inspired and then decided to get her qualified in 2014. After completing her Reformer Training with Elixr School of Pilates, she has gone on to complete her Mat Pilates qualification, Pregnancy Pilates, Stott Mat Training Level 2.

She likes to make sure everyone gets warm in her classes and can be known to go a bit crazy on legs and triceps. She is also good at saying silly things so be prepared to have a bit of a laugh in class.

Sara Fishwick

Sara has been teaching the Pilates Method for 6 years. Her classes focus on the core principles of Pilates - concentration, control, centering, precision, flowing movement and breathing. Expect a varied workout each class targeting all muscle groups in the body. Sara's classes will challenge you, no matter what your level of ability, and she will give you individual attention to help you get the most out of each exercise.

 

Yui Goto

I have been always active as a kid and since I started working as a full time in such a busy environment in Japan I did not know how to slow myself down and how to communicate with myself. Firstly I tried yoga to get physical benefit to release my super tense shoulders (all work stress brought tension to my shoulders!), gain flexibility(sitting and standing all day long was a killer for my hips!!), gain strength (I got tired easily so I thought I was not holding myself upright enough!!!). As I continued to practise yoga more regularly I started to realise that I was able to control my emotions, stresses and became more clear about what I want - this is how I met yoga. I used to like to practise yang style(energetic, dynamic) but now I am slowly introducing myself to practise yin style (slow, calm) to just follow my internal voice.
My unwind classes will give you an opportunity to listen and be aware of your body instead of pushing yourself and suffer from pain, you will learn how to step back and put your ego aside.
My energiser class is more flow based, dynamic movement for you to stay strong and be confident. You may find some poses are challenging however, I’m sure you will end up with a smile on your face :)
