Reformer Pilates, Buti Yoga, Yogalates Fusion, Stretch & Roll
Hey! I’m Shan – Pilates Instructor, Yoga Teacher & trained Physiotherapist. I am super passionate about health & wellness & truly do believe that movement is indeed the best medicine! However, I am even MORE passionate that exercise should also be fun & empowering!
My passion for Pilates began in my teenage tears where I used clinical Pilates to rehab my hockey injuries & improve my sporting performance. After experiencing the amazing results for myself, I was hooked! I completed my Physiotherapy Degree in Auckland & crossed the ditch to Melbourne, where I worked as a Musculoskeletal Physio & delved into the Pilates world for a few years.
The travel bug struck again so I moved to Canada & discovered a whole new passion for Yoga – I completed my 200hr Vinyasa Training & became Buti Yoga & Primal Flow certified.
My next chapter was London… but #Covid…. So I asked my parents if I could open my own mini-studio in their garage… one thing lead to another… and I serendipitously ended up with the beautiful space that is Movement Pilates, founded by the amazing Sacha Hughes (quite the upgrade!). Then when the space 2 doors down suddenly became available, I thought ‘LETS DO ALL OF THE THINGS!!’ & Movement Yoga came to light.
It has always been a dream of mine to one day have my own little ‘Movement Hub’ & team of amazing instructors to share lots of different movement practices with the community. My soul intention behind Movement Pilates & Yoga is for you to feel welcomed, encouraged & empowered to move your body in a way that feels good for you!
