Tarah is a qualified Pilates Instructor having completed her studies through Breathe Education. The style of Pilates that Tarah teaches is ‘evidence based’ & has evolved from what the original founder of Pilates (Joseph Pilates) had initially created. Taking this ‘evidence based’ approach means that she has a broader repertoire – from using different props, equipment & exercises, some of which wasn’t originally used by Joseph Pilates himself.
Tarah is very passionate about helping people & is going to continue her studies in Clinical Pilates so that she is able to help people that will require going through rehabilitation.

• Having a healthy & balanced lifestyle
