Instructor and Polestar Pilates Mentor
Pamela had her first contact with Pilates in 2004 while studying for her Physiotherapy degree in Brazil. She attended several Pilates workshops and since has been very interested in the method and the ways in which it benefits rehabilitation.
After being awarded her Bachelor’s Degree in 2007, Pamela completed a specialisation course in Orthopaedics and Traumatology and had the chance to build her experience with a variety of rehabilitation cases. Her passion for the human body had just started.
In 2008, Pamela moved to Australia to gain new qualifications and experience. She completed her Diploma in Fitness and Remedial Massage and has worked as a massage therapist in Clovelly ever since. Pamela also began her instructor training in Pilates and completed her certification in 2010 through Polestar Education.
Pamela’s combined experience and practice of Pilates, physiotherapy and massage complement each other and give her a fuller understanding of human body. This leads her to treat her clients holistically – in mind, body and spirit. She loves the way Pilates integrates movement and how it functionally improves body awareness, posture, flexibility and strength, to help people prevent injuries by having better control of their bodies.
Pamela is committed to helping her clients achieve their goals, and works to enhance their physical and mental balance in every session. She also has a strong interest in improving her knowledge, focussing primarily on providing the highest standards of patient care and the best practice in the field of rehabilitation.
