Meet Leanne


Let me help you experience a whole new way of moving

I have been teaching exercise and movement since 2000.  I had a change in career while recovering from a head trauma in 1999.  This is when I first discovered Pilates and the journey of becoming a movement teacher began.

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.  I work from home so I can enjoy and balance both my family and professional life.

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

With a mix of Restorative Movement, Pilates and other modalities, my goal is to support you in your journey of health, so you too can flourish now and well into your retirement years with an abundance of energy and a passion for living a movement rich life.
