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.

Ana Whale

Ana has been practicing Pilates as a student for over 10 years, using it as a way to rehab dance and sport injuries as well as strengthen for better performance. She was a dancer from a young age, studying jazz, tap, contemporary and ballet at Brent Street Studios and graduating from Newtown High School of Performing Arts. A self-confessed music nerd (she is a qualified Audio Engineer), she loves all things music and movement related so Barre Belle quickly became a firm favourite of hers to participate in and teach.

After deciding to train in the Pilates method to get a better understanding of the practice, she received her certification in 2016, as well as becoming certified in Pre Natal Pilates.

She is passionate about helping people feel good and achieve their goals physically and mentally, her classes are challenging, rewarding and you’ll be sure to have a laugh along the way.
