Jo comes from an extensive background of teaching and performance as a musician. Encouraging the mind and body to work in harmony to gain ease in performance is integral to her music life and trnasitions perfectly to the world of Pilates.
First walking into a Group Reformer class in 2010, Jo immediately fell in love with the movement flow with breath, challenge to balance and ability to strengthen whilst creating length. A deep immersion into awareness of the body and how to encourage it to a place of greater function and fluidity.
Studying with PilatesITC in Matwork and Reformer was a logical step to bring together both teaching and Pilates knowledge. During 2017, Jo was a student in the BodyMinded course with Sydney Alexander Technique and has just enrolled to complete her Diploma of Professional Pilates Instruction with PilatesITC, simultaneously with breathe Educations Certificate IV as well as still maintaining her full time job as a music teacher. Just as well she loves practicing Pilates so much!
When she isn’t teahing saxophone/clarinet, running on the beach with her 3 dogs or baking treats in the kitchen, you’ll find Jo in the MC MoveFit Studio teaching weekday evenings and weekend mornings and at regular workout sessions as a client, continually learning from her own body and the depth of knowledge from all MC staff.
