With over sixteen years of experience, Joanne has a wealth of knowledge and experience and developed a strong reputation within her practice and the Australian Pilates community. Her deep understanding of Pilates repertoire, anatomy, and biomechanics, coupled with boundless patience and a sense of humor has established her reputation as the teacher's teacher. Jo's passion for the method continues to deepen as the year's progress.
When she's not running her studio Pilates On George Joanne is kept busy within the Pilates community. Winning the 2017 Pilates Anytime Next Teacher Contest was a major recognition of Joanne's solid instructor teaching skills. This was the culmination of building strong foundations as an educator and examiner for Polestar Pilates, a Pilates Alliance Australasia (PAA) Principal Trainer and Committee member, and a National Certified Pilates Teacher (NCPT) (USA). It is these experiences, alongside her strong community connections and deep understanding of Pilates repertoire, anatomy, and biomechanics that have positioned Joanne as a leading advocate for Pilates in Australia.
Jo presented her own workshops at conferences within Australia and internationally. As part of her support to up-and-coming Pilates instructors, Joanne offers regular study groups to trainee teachers and instructors classes to her peers. She is the clinical educator for a Sydney-based physiotherapy clinic, offering regular professional development to the staff. Passionate about the wider Pilates Community in Sydney, Joanne founded the Sydney Pilates Instructors Social Group in February 2016, an initiative designed to develop the Sydney Pilates instructor community.
