Kellie is an ex state level gymnast and professional ballet dancer who while training at the Australian Ballet School was exposed to the Pilates method to rehabilitate a chronic foot injury. So impressed with the method, she underwent an apprenticeship style program under the guidance of Dance Medicine Australia and has been actively teaching Pilates since 2001. Kellie then accelerated her training and while working at Powernouse Pilates in Sydney enrolled in the Polestar Pilates training course. Keen to further explore the concept of movement, she moved to Singapore in 2005 to work as the senior Pilates instructor at Ivana Daniell Studio, while studying the Gyrotonic® method to which she is now certified.
She has since worked in Melbourne and has most recently settled in Adelaide. She holds a Bach. Arts (dance) and is currently completing postgraduate study in the area of Health and Rehabilitation Science. Kellie has been affilated with and mentoring/educating for Polestar since 2003.
