Your Instructors





Amanda is the only certified Barre Concept© instructor in Brighton. Drawing on 7 years tecahing experience in Pilates, she has helped people of all ages to overcome or improve back and other musculoskeletal disorders, ranging from Sciatica and myofascial pain, to shoulder complaints and chronic conditions.

It's really important that clients enjoy a great workout, with safe, effective movements and easy to follow instructions that they can incorporate into a daily routine.

Both the Pilates and Barre Concept routines are challenging yet fun and functional. Whether it is restored function or improved performance you are after, as long as you are prepared to apply regular effort to your routine, these classes will help you achieve great results.

As an electrician, Aaron had acute shoulder instability and back problems, and realised that Pilates was the ideal movement form to correct his poor technique at the gym and to support functional movement at work. In 2012, Allan Menezes (Director of Pilates Institute of Australasia) encouraged Aaron to study anatomy and physiology and to later gain his confidence to train and succeed in gaining his Pilates qualification in January 2017.

Aaron trained with Emma Newham, Creator of Barre Concept™ this year, and is looking forward to helping others achieve their fitness goals and recognise the benefits of a realistic and progressive exercise routine that follows the specific needs of your body.
