Here's a question for you
When you look back over your life - personal and professional - can you see clearly the faces of people who have been there for you to guide you, inspire you, motivate you, listen to you, encourage you, celebrate you? If you can, then you’ve been blessed to have had a mentor, or many, touch your life.
I’ve had some incredible mentors in my life who really helped to shape me into the person I am becoming. And I STILL reach out to them when I’m in need - whether I’m looking for emotional, spiritual or work related advice. Because let’s be honest, we don’t all know everything.
But as I look back over my life, I realise that I play the role of mentor to many people too.
I’m often referred to as a Teacher’s Teacher (a compliment I regard highly). Maybe that’s because I have a passion for what I do, for staying true to my beliefs, for desiring to know more about this fascinating body, for speaking straight to the matter or for being delighted in other people’s success. I love to make complicated things simple. I love to create an environment that is safe to ask any question, I love to challenge people and to empower them to know that they already know.
Mentors play such significant roles in our world but sometimes we don’t feel that we know who to or how to reach out when we’re in need. I’m hoping to change that for you.

Amanda has been passionate about Pilates ever since her introductory mat class over two decades ago. Following her heart, she decided to switch careers to become a Pilates instructor. After completing her extensive training with Polestar Pilates, her love for the method led her to become a Principal Educator, Examiner & Director of Mentoring for their teacher-training program for 10 years.
Always endeavouring to improve her offering, she holds a Level III Franklin Method Educator qualification, is the Prinicipal Organizer & mentor of Franklin Method AU/NZ. This mind-body training combined with movement, is what allows her to successfully pass on essential information about the body and how it is designed to move efficiently.
In addition to running her studio on the Sunshine Coast (AUS), she travels nationally & internationally, conducting workshops sharing her wealth of experience to inspire fellow instructors and the every day person to have a greater knowledge and appreciation for their body and its dynamics.
To complement her skills, Amanda is also qualified in Shiatsu massage. She believes there is immense power in healing through touch and balancing energy flow. Her unique fusion of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) principles, Pilates & functional movement, enhances the overall experience that her students and clients receive.
