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.
After her first yoga class, she instantly knew she had found the missing piece of the puzzle and yoga would be a part of her life forever. Yoga has helped her cut through the chaos created in her mind, simplify on all levels and find meaning in every moment, good or bad.

You can expect her energiser class to be strong but infused with fun and tailored to the individual’s level. From her unwind class you can expect a slower practice and longer holds lingering in those spaces of stillness between each breathe. Both classes emphasise mindfulness and breathe awareness to bring you a sense of peace and clarity
Her favourite yoga related quote is “asana without breathe is just gymnastics”.
