Helen has been involved in the dance industry as a performer, teacher and choreographer for over 30 years. As a 21-year-old dancer, she injured her back dancing and was told she needed back surgery and would not dance again. She didn’t like this diagnosis and so made her way to a Pilates Studio for rehabilitation and she has been addicted ever since. Helen has firsthand knowledge of how this work can rehabilitate you and allow you to continue living your life and doing the things you love.
After many years of teaching dance and being a “student” of Pilates, Helen made the decision to train as a Pilates Instructor and hasn’t looked back. A year after completing her Diploma she returned to study to complete her Advanced Diploma. Since then she has completed her Buff Bones Certification, Level 1 Innovations in Pilates Certification and attended many professional development workshops both here and overseas.
Helen opened a second studio in Windsor in 2019, which has given her a more central Melbourne base to work with Dance Students and Professional Performers. She has two adult children who are in the Entertainment industry and through them and their friends recognised a gap in their training and a need for better education on how to maintain their bodies and survive an 8 show week without injury!
Helen specialises in working with clients with Scoliosis and is currently the only Authorised Scolio-Pilates® Practitioner in Australia. She is passionate about helping clients lead a healthy and pain-free life and avoid surgical intervention where possible. Helen has written her own Professional Development Workshop on the subject which she has presented throughout Australia for the last two years and is now representing Scolio-Pilates® in Australia and offering teaching training from the Windsor Studio and throughout Australia.

Helen has worked as a Faculty Educator and National Presenter for National Pilates Training, but since completing her Scolio-Pilates® Masters Training has stepped down from this role to focus her energy into running her two studios, and education other Instructors on working with Scoliosis.
