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.
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 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.
