Meet Leanne


Let me help you experience a whole new way of moving

I have been teaching exercise and movement since 2000.  I initially discovered Pilates while recovering from a head trauma in 1999 and this is when my career took a very different path. I started The Pilates Centre in 2003 when my first son Connor was 6 months old.  I expanded my business over time and at my peak was operating from 3 locations in Hawkes Bay.  I am now very happy to say I have been blessed with another beautiful son, Paris born 2012, and am now enjoying a much more relaxed pace with my business as I work from home so I can enjoy both my family and professional life.

I have continued to study different forms of movement over the years which has enhanced my teaching of exercise and movement and how my clients experience it.  I am very proud to say I have a wonderful following of students with whom I continue to  grow (age) and move with.  We have a lot of fun and enjoy a lot of laughter, even during the challenging movements!

So I hope I get to meet you in person also, and get the opportunity to share my wonderful mix of Pilates and Restorative Movement so you too can continue to flourish well into your retirement years with an abundance of energy and a love of movement.
