Susie was first introduced to Pilates after neck and shoulder issues due to poor posture and old kayaking injuries.
With a BSc Honours in Medical Engineering and Master by Research in Biomechanics from Scottish Universities (looking at how the human body moves and interacts with its surrounding environment and what we can do to aid in rehabilitation).
She has previously worked in a Clinical Gait and Movement Analysis Service in Melbourne analysing patients walking abilities. During this time, she worked within a multi-disciplinary team (physios, surgeons and engineers) prescribing treatment and interventions to improve patients walking using specialised motion analysis equipment.
A natural progression with her Biomedical Engineering background and love of Pilates found Susie going on to study the Diploma of Pilates Movement Therapy through the APMA.
Having now completed over 200 hours of supervised teaching in mat and studio Pilates Susie enjoys relating Pilates movement and philosophies into everyday life and activities.
When she isn’t teaching, Susie is kept busy with her 2 girls aged 7 and 9 years enjoying the outdoors, swimming, camping, doing anything musical, teaching them Pilates and watching them grow up with her Partner Drew.
Her latest hobby is Stand Up Paddle boarding- getting to explore the beautiful beaches of Mornington and Mt Eliza and putting her Pilates to good use.
“Have been doing Pilates for over 10 years, I believe it’s the best foundation you can give your body to enable it to do the many other varied things we do in our lives. Whether we have injury, other issues, or are feeling happy and healthy, Pilates is a great tool for our body and mind”Susie Wilson
