Amanda has been dancing and performing for over 26 years. She began her dance career in calisthenics when she was 2 years old, and from there moved onto ballet, tap, jazz, and more recently, Latin and ballroom styles. Amanda was also a member of the Crows Dance Team and the South Australian Youth Ballet Company. After spending many years learning Latin dance styles, she formed a professional dance group with two other dancers and performed in various corporate shows around Adelaide. Some of these included the Adelaide Fringe and Cabaret Festivals, Variety Charity Galas and the Premiers Gala Dinner, as well as performing beside Barry Humphries in the closing show of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival 2015. Her love of movement and dance prompted Amanda to become a Physiotherapist, with a focus on rehabilitation.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from UniSA in 2011 and has since been working as a senior physiotherapist at Griffith Rehabilitation Hospital. Amanda regularly participates in professional development programs and has a full certification in matwork and equipment Pilates, including dance specific Pilates. She has been extremely passionate about teaching and practising Pilates for many years and has been utilising it as a treatment technique for patients with a wide range of conditions, including general and orthopaedic surgeries, pre/post-natal and Women’s Health, oncology, chronic pain and neurological issues.
As a new mother herself, Amanda has developed a particular focus on post-natal rehabilitation. With her extensive training in women’s health and her years of experience in injury rehabilitation, she is available for appointments to get you mobile, no matter what your condition may be.
