Nell is a qualified Social Worker, with over 10 years of experience working with a range of clients. She found Pilates when looking for ways to holistically address her endometriosis, and as a form of self care from her career.

Nell leapt at the opportunity to move to New York City in 2017, where she undertook her Comprehensive Classical Pilates Teacher Training under Alycea Ungaro’s Real Pilates (2018). Her training with Real Pilates involved 600+ hours of practical and theoretical learning and examination, resulting in her becoming a third generation instructor.

On her return to Australia Nell continued her Social Work career and opened her home Pilates studio. She also worked in a number of Sydney studios, before welcoming her son in 2021.

Nell has worked with a variety of clients, who have come to Pilates for a diverse range of reasons. She has taught individuals with chronic pain to athletes, Pilates regulars and newcomers, people from all walks of life and at different life stages.

Nell prides herself on working with the individual; recognising where they are at now and where they want to be. Her background in Social Work means she will enjoy getting to know you, and her passion for Pilates means she will endeavour to give you a good workout and allow you to move through the rest of your week with confidence.
