holistic movement specialist
Amanda has been passionate about Pilates ever since her introductory mat class over two decades ago. She was amazed by the simplicity and effectiveness that this type of exercise had on her body. Muscles got leaner and stronger, flexibility was enhanced, posture became lengthened and breath seemed to be more expansive than ever. 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 and Examiner for their teacher-training program for 10 years.
Always endeavouring to improve her offering, she is also a Franklin Method Educator and, as such, is able to pass on essential information about the body and how it is designed to move efficiently. In addition to running her studio in Peregian Beach, Sunshine Coast, she travels nationally & internationally, conducting workshops sharing her wealth of experience to inspire 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 clients receive.
Amanda’s holistic approach delivers personalised sessions to a broad range of clients from novice to advanced. She successfully achieves results with those experiencing chronic pain, pre & postnatal conditioning, sports athletes or for anyone seeking general wellness and wellbeing.

The very best Pilates experience on the Sunny Coast. Amanda has an extensive knowledge of the body and the intricacies of how it works and she’s very happy to help us all achieve our personal goals- whether it’s fitness, flexibility, strength and/or looking amazing! All things are possible in a Kinected class.
I would totally recommend this amazing Studio.
I have been going to Kinected Pilates for both mat and reformer classes for about 3 years. Classes are conducted by Amanda and Rachel who are both very experienced and caring teachers. Having fractured 6 ribs, I have been brought back to my full mobility. Small classes ensure that everyone gets individual attention.
Each class is different and they will tailor things to suit how your body is feeling on the day. My wife, who has no health issues, very much enjoys her classes too and has benefited from increased flexibility, muscle strength and tone.
As a mature woman struggling with flexability and lower back pain I decided to take control and seek help. I believed that Pilates would be of benefit and that 'Kinected Pilates Studio ' was a reputable health studio. After 12 months my decision making was correct, resulting in improved mobility whilst learning a great deal about my body from knowledgeable instructors with a caring and professional approach. I felt comfortable from the start with the small classes resulting in a calming experience.
