Heidi Edwards

Pilates Instructor

Passionate, creative, and fun are some words Heidi’s clients would use to describe her teaching style. Her keen eye for movement, attention to detail, and encouraging approach ensure her clients get the most of each session. She enjoys creating unique exercise modifications to challenge her clients with a focus on neuromuscular strength training. She believes fitness should be fun, challenging and remedial by nature.

Growing up loving Competitive Gymnastics and Athletics, scoliosis and injury prevented Heidi from continuing these passions. After discovering Yoga in her early 20’s she became fascinated with the notion of movement as medicine and went on to complete her first 200 hour Teacher Training in 2010, transitioning into a career of Holistic Health and Wellbeing.

From her Yoga training she was introduced to Pilates, the combined modalities helped regain her flexibility and movement, treating her pain, while strengthening her core and changing her life in such a positive way she wanted to share it with others.

Since completing her training she is now a Certified STOTT PILATES® trainer of Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair and Barrels. She has also completed workshops for Athletic conditioning, Injuries and Special Populations. She is also trained as a personal trainer, pre/post natal fitness instructor, and is a Teacher Trainer for Xtend Barre Australia.
