Ailsa first discovered Pilates in 2009 while trying to alleviate her own ongoing muscular skeletal issues. In addition to experiencing the benefits of Pilates in her own body, she had found a new life passion. She left behind her previous career of a decade as a geologist and undertook a Diploma in the Polestar Pilates Studio and Rehabilitation Method in 2013.
Ailsa is passionate about helping her clients through Pilates. Her style of teaching is focused and attentive, guiding clients through movement to gain strength, mobility and confidence in their bodies to help overcome compensations and faulty movement patterns. Ailsa has a special interest in Women’s health, spinal and hip pathologies, but also enjoys working to assist clients at any stage of their movement journey from preventative health, rehabilitation to ultimate fitness.
Ailsa has consistently worked alongside and collaborated with physiotherapists and other manual therapists to assist in improving her understanding of working with the various injuries that she sees in her clients.
Ailsa is grateful to have been able to find a career she is passionate about and loves the process of constantly learning and expanding her knowledge surrounding Pilates and amazed by how innovative and creative the method can be. Outside of the studio Ailsa loves to keep moving through swimming, hiking, surfing and yoga.
