Angela Black


Keen to avoid surgery following a running injury, Angela looked to Pilates as a way to rehabilitate and balance muscle. By the second week, Angela knew this was a form of therapy she wanted to pursue professionally. Since then, Angela has gained her Diploma in Professional Pilates Instruction from Polestar Pilates Australia. Angela is now both an Assistant Educator and Mentor for Polestar Pilates.

Angela brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience as an operating room nurse. Her clinical specialities are diverse and include urology, cardio-thoracic, orthopaedics, general surgery, obstetrics and robotics. Angela combines this broad knowledge base with Pilates and uses this comprehension of surgery to help clients prepare for surgery and assist them in recovery.

Angela performed for eight years with Opera Australia as a professional opera singer and appreciates the importance of breath in facilitating movement as well as the vitality from breath-body connection.

Angela’s philosophy towards Pilates is that it can benefit everyone, that it’s less about moving perfectly and more about moving optimally for the individual.
