Pilates

Pilates is a method of exercise and physical movement designed to stretch, strengthen, and balance the body. Practiced faithfully, Pilates yields numerous benefits. Increased lung capacity and circulation through deep, healthy breathing,improved strength and flexibility, particularly of the abdomen and back muscles, coordination – both muscular and mental, are key components in an effective Pilates program. Posture, balance, and core strength are all improved. Bone density and joint health improve, and many experience positive body awareness for the first time. Pilates teaches balance and control of the body, and that capacity spills over into other areas of life.

Narelle Borg (Pilates Instructor):

Narelle is passionate about promoting better movement, flexibility and strength to her clients through Pilates. Having had a difficult pregnancy and birth, Narelle found Pilates was critical to her rehabilitation, enabling her to be able to have pain free functional movement again. Coupled with her personal love for health and fitness, all this inspired her to take on the challenge to train as a Pilates Instructor. After working in demanding roles in the corporate world for over 24 years, Narelle understands the stress and ‘tech’ postures and how to improve them for reduced pain.

Narelle is a fully qualified Mat Pilates instructor and has been practicing Pilates for over 10 years. With a Bachelor of Arts and Honours degree in Psychology, Narelle understands the importance of the mind-body connection, a key tenant of Pilates. Her passion for Pilates is evident in her creative classes, teaching good alignment and technique, designed to challenge and encourage her clients to strive for their goals. Narelle is completing further studies in Pilates and looks forward to continuing her Pilates journey.

You will find Narelle active in her down time, in a Pilates mat or studio class, lifting weights or boxing and sweating it out or chasing her son around.
