Pilates has proved to be one of the most useful forms of exercise I've learned in the 40 years I've been actively interested in health and fitness.  It's helped from a technique point of view with everything else I teach and seeing the difference it's made to my clients health and wellbeing has been particularly rewarding.

I am so excited to incorporate teaching into my practice, and have already been teaching daily classes to friends and family free of charge. Thank you so much for the useful resources as well :)"  Amanda Anne Neri

Learn Pilates: Classical Mat – Beginner to Advanced

This course will teach you the Classical Mat Pilates sequence from complete beginner to advanced level.  You will start by learning the fundamentals (neutral position, correct breathing, where the core muscles are and how to engage them) and move through short classes to prepare you for the sequence.  In a short time you will feel the incredible benefits Pilates offers.

"A few well-designed movements, properly performed in a balanced sequence, are worth hours of doing sloppy calisthenics or forced contortion." Joseph Pilates

This course is summed up so well in this quote.  I have seen clients transform their bodies in a few short months by following the complete Pilates Classical Mat sequence.  Although the physical changes are astonishing in such a short time, the benefits to their health are equally amazing: - 

  • Most become more body aware within 3 classes

  • Posture improves

  • Chronic back pain disappears

  • Energy levels are enhanced

  • Flexibility and Mobility increase

  • Sports injuries are less frequent

  • Clients report  that they feel calmer and less stressed

  • Flat abs, strong back and that long, lean look that Pilates gives

  • Improved bone density

  • Better control of the pelvic floor

  • Pilates is THE BEST preparation for pregnancy and can really help with recovery

Anyone can do Pilates: you don't have to be young or a contortionist: the age range for my clients are from 18 to 84 years of age and once you have learned the sequence, you have it for life.

  • This course consists of a Pilates Guide booklet in PDF format;

  • 11 hours of videos: workshops, classes for beginner, intermediate and advanced

  • The complete matwork sequence suitable for that level.

The workshops teach the basics of Pilates and so this is where you start and refer back anytime you need a reminder.  You will learn

  • Neutral position, the ideal alignment for pelvis and spine

  • Thoracic (lateral) breathing

  • How to locate the core muscles and engage them

  • Drills to strengthen the core muscles

  • How to set up correctly and prepare for each exercise

  • How and when to breathe and how breathing can progress exercises

  • The Principles of Pilates which will take your practice to a new level

The classes teach you all the exercises you will need for the Mat sequence and each prepares you for the next. 

"Great instructor. The exercises evolve naturally in difficulty. Timely and clear cues." 5* review from Katarina, a student

You should practice each class until you feel comfortable to move on.  The sequence should be repeated at least 10 times, every other day.  You will then be ready to move on to the next level.

It is possible to complete this course within 3 months for the fit and injury free; 5 to 6 months is achievable for most people.

"With her gentle voice, clear instructions and perfect pacing, Josie takes us through beginner, intermediate and advanced lessons. Her prompts and self-check reminders seem to come exactly when needed. There are ample opportunities to practice and progress at each level, and will benefit all ages and body types." 5* review from Susan Pav

"In 10 sessions you will feel the difference. In 20 you will see the difference. And in 30 you will have a whole new body." Joseph Pilates

One of the biggest challenges to maintaining a regular exercise routine is time.  Although we may have time to go to class a couple of times a week or fit in a game of tennis, run or swim, the most effective way to maintain our health is to try to exercise on a regular basis, preferably a little bit of something everyday.

This course is the answer: in as little as 10 minutes a day, you can practice Pilates daily and enjoy all the benefits this amazing form of exercise provides.

Pilates is the ideal way to build a strong, flexible, mobile and toned body and is suitable for everyone at any age.  Perfect to improve posture, core strength and for preventing or recovering from injuries.  It is a great exercise choice, whether used alone or in conjunction with other fitness trainings. 

Included in the course:-

  • 17 classes, almost 4 hours of video in total.

  • Classes between 10 minutes and 22 minutes long.  Can be used on their own for maintenance or can be joined together when you have more time in lots of different combinations.

  • 3 modules: Toned in Ten - 6 x 10 minutes classes giving a balanced mini workout.  All the Matwork exercises are contained in these 6 classes. Express Yourself - 7 x 10 to 22 minute classes, each with a unique theme.  Spotlight - 4 short workouts to target specific areas (Hips & Thighs, Abdominals, Upper Body, Flexibility & Mobility

  • A Guide to Pilates manual.

Ideally, you should have a knowledge of Pilates as the exercises are intermediate/advanced level.  If you have never done Pilates before, "Learn Pilates: Beginner to Advanced" would be a good place to start.  For those who need a refresher, the Pilates Guide will provide a reminder of neutral position before working slowly through "Toned in Ten" until you can perform the exercises efficiently. 

Not suitable for anyone with back problems or injuries.

I am happy to see you are interested in taking my Compete Pilates Mat Course. Congratulations on taking the first steps of starting Pilates.

I designed this course for people at any age to understand the principles of Pilates and to practice it easily anywhere. Pilates is for everyone, at any fitness level. I invite you to think about the money you spend on anything else in your life rather than your BODY. By taking this course you will make a wonderful investment for your future.

What makes this course different is the fact that it is very detailed and informative. You will learn how to do the Pilates exercises CORRECTLY and also to get the MOST out of your workouts. At the beginning of the course, we will start with the theoretical aspect of Pilates. Further, we will explore all the classical Pilates exercises. You will be able to understand not only HOW to do the exercises but also WHY you are doing them. Lastly, you will have a full 1-hour workout at the end of every level.

You will also enjoy creating your own pilates mat workout thanks to the guidelines I will share with you at the end of the course.

It is exactly why this course is different than watching a Pilates workout video on the internet. While taking this course you are not just watching the instructor and repeating what he/she is doing but you will be learning the techniques of doing Pilates correctly.

What changes you can expect at the end of this course?

  • Improved posture,

  • More flexibility,

  • Core strength,

  • Mobility on your shoulders, hips, arms, legs, and spine

  • Become more body aware,

  • Performance increase in other sports you do,

  • Improved ability in your daily activities,

  • Avoid injuries (or less likely to have)

  • Increased self-confidence

Now everybody has a busy life and doesn’t take enough care of their bodies that they LIVE in. The pilates method taught in this course is a great investment in your body to age powerfully. Why? Because it helps you to have a stronger core which is a prerequisite to have a healthy life. True core strength comes from strengthening the tiny muscles in and around your spine and working outwards. Pilates helps you to strengthen all your body muscles equally that is essential to keep your body in great and strong shape.

“Pilates is the complete coordination of body, mind, and spirit”

This +5 hours, user-friendly course has been designed for the beginner Pilates student, looking to practise their learned knowledge within effective workouts. "The Pilates Practice: Uncovering the Basics" covers the basic knowledge. "The Pilates Playlist" will give you the opportunity to actively apply this knowledge.

With workouts for everyday of the week, it's designed to collectively target the entire body, using minimal accessories. The workouts are interchangeable, so if you'd prefer working a specific area of your body, that's possible too.

It's set out in a way that will enable you to practise at your own level and convenience, until such point that you can advance to intermediate. Once there, continue to practise the "additional hour". You'll then have the ongoing flexibility of continuing your practice three times a week. By pairing any three, 20-minute classes together, you'll have two hours' worth of workouts, plus the additional hour, at your disposal.

Get inspired to take your body and mind to new heights, and as Joseph Pilates so truly proclaimed: "You will feel better in ten sessions, look better in twenty sessions, and have a completely new body in thirty sessions.”

Unfortunately back pain is now the second leading cause of disease burden overall in Australia and it is expected that 80% of us will suffer from debilitating back pain in our lives.

Most people don't know what to do to reduce and prevent back pain and often do nothing about it, through fear of it getting worse leading to a sedentary lifestyle.

Thankfully there are solutions out there and this course is designed to help you to make a start with exercising again, so you can reduce your painful symptoms safely and effectively.

This course is very basic and is designed to teach you the fundamentals of Pilates. You will learn how to activate your core muscles as well as the key muscle groups that support your spine. This will prevent you from straining your back everyday and you can become more active. Being more active means that you will look and feel better.

After completing this course you be able to:

  • Activate your core muscles taking pressure off your back and relieving your pain.

  • Improve your posture and tone your body so you can look and feel better.

  • Get stronger and fitter so you can be active and do the things that you love with family and friends.

INSTRUCTOR

Your instructor is Dr Fleur Castlereagh a Chiropractor, Pilates Instructor and Personal Trainer with 19 years experience treating and managing acute and chronic back pain. Previously she was athlete who experienced a debilitating injury whilst training extensively as a Long-Jumper.

Fleur had an accident while training and ended up with a spinal stress fracture in her lower back. This led to severe pain and 12 months of rehabilitation and treatment. During this time she learnt how to manage her own back pain through Pilates, posture, treatment and careful exercise. It was a long journey but it led to Fleur jumping a personal best of 6.30m several years later, and many years of competing at State and National level in Australia.

Fleur will guide you through the process she used to recover and manage her own back pain, as well as what she gives her patients when they are coming back from injury and wanting long lasting relief from back pain. It is safe and manageable for every level. Fleur believes that it's about training smarter as you age, not harder.

Please note: this is included in the Prenatal/Postnatal Training Course so if you are looking for guidance on the entire perinatal period or are an instructor looking for a CPD course, that is the course for you.  Otherwise, this is an excellent postnatal healing programme.

Postnatal exercise is so beneficial for mother and baby, but it must be safe, effective and appropriate.  There are some exercises that can help you heal and others that will have a negative effect and delay your progress.  You need to know which will be helpful and which you should avoid.  There is a ton of contradictory advice out there but this course is based on my own UK level 3 training and the latest evidence from the research I have undertaken.  It is very safe and can be started immediately after giving birth.

This programme offers the following benefits

  • Helps heals a diastasis recti and close the gap

  • Helps heal the pelvic floor and improve issues such as stress incontinence

  • Helps the uterus return to normal size

  • Strengthens the deep core abdominal muscles which will alleviate any back problems you may have suffered

  • Improves your posture which will have been affected during pregnancy

  • Helps you get back into shape so improves self-esteem

  • Exercises helps improve mood and promotes a good nights sleep

This course consists of

  • A preparation phase to help you begin the healing process and put you in touch with your core muscles to aid recovery from the inside out

  • Ten progressive exercises to strengthen the core, tone the abdominal muscles and flatten the belly

Valuable resources accompany each section to help you understand what is happening to your body post-partum and quizzes to help your understanding.  Topics include

  • Post-natal changes

  • Benefits for you and baby

  • Risks and contraindications

  • Recommended exercise and the all-important types you should avoid

  • Information on diastasis recti and the role of the core

  • Nutrition & weight loss

  • Post natal check up checklist

Many clients have found that their abdominals are in better shape after this programme than they were pre-pregnancy.  I've helped many women rebuild their self-confidence and take back control of their body.  Let me help you too.

When I started my Pilates training, I knew zero anatomy. Literally, nothing. I was intimidated — big time. When I began my Pilates teacher training course everyone seemed to talk-the-talk. I listened and nodded pretending I knew what they were talking about and hoped I didn’t get called on. Needless to say, this was not a great way to begin my training. I was in over my head.

I want you to have a different experience. I want you to walk into your first Pilates course with the confidence and knowledge to crush it.

This course will:

  • Build your foundational knowledge of anatomy,

  • Teach you to use the correct anatomical language that will be used throughout your Pilates teacher training courses,

  • Give you the skills to understand the anatomy of an exercise, which will allow you to teach directly to your client’s needs,

  • Set you up for long-term success and give you the confidence to teach with knowledge.

If you don’t know what muscles an exercise targets, how can you give a client a well-balanced, educated workout?

Pamlattes: Pilates by Pam

Fabulous over 40: A fit physiotherapist takes you on a journey to achieve excellent physical conditioning.

Students: 53, Price: $74.99

Students: 53, Price:  Paid

This course is based on the hottest and most effective training skills from Pilates, Yoga, Martial Arts, and Physiotherapy (I like to call these skills "P.Y.M.P."). These skills are broken down and taught to you in such a way that you will be able to catch on easily and see results quickly. I often travel to exotic locations to teach my PYMP skills and my students ask me to leave them with a training video so that they can continue to challenge their strength, mobility, and endurance after I depart. I recently discovered Udemy and decided that it would be best to design a virtual class (which my students fondly dubbed "Pamlattes") with written skills, cues and instructions to compliment each exercise series.

I am a very visual person; show me what to do, tell me why I should be doing it, and then show me what to do again. The video demonstrations outline the skills you will be practicing with-in each chapter. You may pause and repeat each demo as many times as is necessary in order to strengthen your skills. Such strengths involve developing your core control, breathing, alignment, coordination, balance, and agility. Each exercise skill is broken down step-by-step in the written description until you are able to "find your cues". Your cue words will be suggested for you but you may make up your own reminders to help you focus on proper core engagement, moving while continuing to breathe, and aligning or stabilizing an area of your body. The awesome thing about these particular skills is that they apply directly to what your body needs to do for you every day for the rest of your life. Even while sitting at your chair reading this you could be practicing three of the numerous skills waiting for you inside this course. ("Windows Open", Stack your "6" and "12", and "Ice Cube"!)

You will not need much more than your own body weight to complete this course but you will require a flat surface to lie or stand on. Note that some of the exercises may incorporate a small Pilates ball or a Bender Ball to help with cueing. During each exercise series you will aim to perform approximately six to eight repetitions or six to eight breaths while perfecting each form. The goal is to build up your strength and prowess to be able to perform each series with excellent execution. The exercise series will usually take me approximately 90 minutes to complete all ten chapters. I therefore select my favorite five chapters while I am practicing or teaching to finish an all-around workout in 45 minutes. These exercises/skills can be performed daily - no rest day required. Many can be performed covertly while standing in line, during a stretch break next to your desk, or while sitting in traffic. Mix and match the chapters to design your own Pamlattes class or follow the full exercise flow at the end!

Why Did I Put These Workouts Together?

Because I wanted to HELP YOU do your Pilates workouts anytime, anywhere!

Get ready for convenient and time-saving Pilates Workouts!

Having spoken with many of my clients, they often say they get frustrated trying to workout at home because they just don’t know what to do or how to do it.

Being a mum of 2 little girls I know how hard it is to find time to fit in a workout, that’s why I wanted to share my passion for Pilates with you at home.

My Home Workout Series consists of 9 Pilates mat workout videos and 1 Stretch session video so that’s 10 workouts you can use to create the strong, fit and flexible body you know you DESERVE.

All the workouts are 15-20 mins in length so they’re perfect to fit in to your busy day.

7 out of the 10 workouts require no equipment and I’ve thrown in a few small props like hand weights, a theraband and a Pilates ball for those of you wanting to work a little harder or change it up in the other videos.

I’ve designed this workout series to cater for the beginner to the advanced with YOU, my clients in the forefront of my mind.

Exercise modifications and advancements are offered throughout the videos and you can take it all at your own pace.

Need a little more time for an exercise?

No worries, press PAUSE and take it.

Want to do the same video for a few weeks to really nail it? Go for it! I’ll support you all the way.

What Workout Should You Do?

If you’ve never done Pilates before or want to re-visit the basics try my PILATES BASICS workout. This the perfect workout if you’re just starting out or trying Pilates for the first time.

The rest of the workouts are a combination of upper and lower body strength training with different focuses in each video.

Want to work the whole body and get your sweat on? Try my PILATES BARRE workout (seriously, I’ve told a few of my clients but when I was filming this video, sweat was literally dripping off my nose!!).

Want to strengthen your core? Try my FULL BODY FLOW workout for a challenge.

Need more upper body strength? Try my STRENGTH WITH WEIGHTS workout and my THERABAND FUN WORKOUT.

Plus more!

What Are Your Goals?

I want you to feel stronger, more confident and energised!

Whether that looks like dancing it up on a Saturday night and not waking up in pain on Sunday (we’ve all been there!), playing with your kids or grand kids or going for a long hike.

My goal is NOT to get you looking like a supermodel (but toning and tightening up is always a great bonus!).

My goal is to get you to FEEL STRONGER, MOVE BETTER and REDUCE PAIN with Pilates.

So, join me on the mat and get ready to take your workouts to a new level!

Love and Pilates Always!

Welcome to my Body Sculpting Pilates with Props Series. With the help of this video series, you will learn to work out alone adapt and modify the exercises for yourself according to your current needs. You will learn how to progress or regress the level of some exercises and how to modify them. You will also understand the basics and alignments of Pilates. The program is suitable for any age, body type and you can join from any level.

In this program, I created 4 videos for each level from beginners to advanced. All of these videos are 30 min long. In the first video, I always show the pure exercises without additional props at the following one we are using the long elastic at the 3rd short elastic, and at the last, we incorporate water bottles. The water bottles are replacing the weights. At the extra tracks, I am introducing how to work out with a big ball, a small stability ball, a power circle and stretching and mobility flow.

The minimum amount of props I use makes this series suitable for someone, who would like to perform these exercises from home or while traveling.

I trust you will find my program really useful for achieving your objectives.

See you at the series,

Have a lovely day,

Pilates Ultimate Solution to Improve Posture

I have been working on designing this course and combining the exercises one by one in order for everyone to benefit from this episode of postural correction.

This course for any one at any age and doesn't require certain level of endurance or fitness, so lets build these together if you are a complete beginner :)

I always consider my technique and cues are very different and unique since they are built on a solid practice and well taken knowledge from worldwide master trainers  so I make sure to repeat cues and keep my teaching detailed and informative as much as possible throughout every exercise.

throughout years of teaching I always encouraged quality over calories and repetitions where we build a healthier physique and understand the principals more than anything else as it is always a great investment where we spend money on learning new physical techniques and understand how our body works and the dynamic of movements we introduce to it.

This course includes 12 exercises that are mainly upper body for an effective posture correction and muscle balancing and strengthening.

I come from the corporate world and know exactly what is sedentary life means and how do we sit on a desk for more than 8 hours a day but I have always been attentive and even guided my colleagues not to fall under this habits, and remember 20 mins of a still posture takes time to change it back to the right alignment so also be careful and use all possible options to stay upright.

Use a deflated pilates ball behind the lower back   

A cushion or any sort of support to keep you lower spine supported and in neutral position.every 20 mins stand up and walk around for 5 mins and move your body so your body adapts to movement instead of stillness and rounded positions.

Each exercise is well explained and taken slowly so you can follow easily, I am delighted to be in Udemy and teach as many people as I can.

Welcome to this course and I am so delighted to see you starting up your great journey and learning a great program like Pilates.

Please send all your questions and comments on the course and I will reply as soon as I can.

Thank you.
