Diploma of Professional Pilates Instruction
Certificate IV in Dance
Alicia was introduced to the method of Pilates during her time as a full time dancer at Patrick Studios Australia. One of Alicia’s greatest loves is performing. During her time as a dancer she had the opportunity to perform for Crown Casino, major corporate events including Kmart and Schwarzkopf, major Nightclubs around Melbourne, Las Vegas HHI Competition (with Competitive Hip Hop Dance Crew – A2D) and Australia’s Got Talent (with Competitive Hip Hop Dance Crew – A2D). She has also taught many forms of dance including Hip Hop, Jazz, Ballet and Tap.
Alicia’s love for movement and mindfulness was what drew her to Pilates. After experiencing Pilates for injury prevention while dancing full time, she found it offered a unique movement experience that left her feeling euphoric.
Alicia also views Pilates as form of meditation. She feels having the mind body connection needed during Pilates creates a sense of staying present and in the moment, in comparison to the usual fast paced environment we experience in day to day life. She also loved the endless repertoire from Pilates that gives her the freedom to keep the creativity from dance and tie it into Pilates movement through flow, variations and choreography.
Alicia has a deep passion for helping people both mentally and physically, creating a positive space for people to feel comfortable to explore and experience how wonderful our bodies are designed to feel.
