What is Pilates?
Pilates tones muscle, increases core strength and gives you a total body work out!
Pilates is a form of strength training that focuses on the core stabilising muscles. Pilates strengthens and tones the entire body, and will correct posture and muscle imbalances (which is why Pilates is often recommended by physiotherapists). Pilates focuses on correct muscle activation and control to perform movements. Rather than heavy weights, Pilates uses resistance to tone muscles.
Pilates is amazing, you’re going to LOVE it! Everyone is welcome! Anyone can do Pilates, it’s inclusive for all ages and all fitness levels. I modify each exercise individually and offer different levels to suit everyone's ability in every class!
Reformer Pilates is similar yet very different to mat based Pilates. Reformer Pilates is done using the Pilates reformer machine and is generally more intense and more dynamic than mat based Pilates as it adds resistance to the Pilates exercises via the use of the springs which form part of the machine.
Hi, I’m Katrina
Owner & Qualified Pilates Instructor
I’m a 30-year-old passionate, qualified and experienced Pilates Instructor from Mareeba, Far North Queensland, trained by world recognised Studio Pilates in both matwork and reformer pilates.
I’ve previously worked as a Platinum Reformer Pilates Instructor for Studio Pilates Cairns. I’m also an experienced Property Developer, licenced Real Estate Agent and a proud mum to my little boy, Raylan.
The 30 day challenge was great - it made me feel very motivated and I went to every class that I could possibly attend. I feel like I have developed a better technique due to attending so many classes and I can feel the changes in the shape of my body. Katrina is an awesome instructor who is willing to go above and beyond to assist all of her class members.
