Rachael Sheridan   Rachael was born in Scotland and has always been passionate about movement and its ability to make her feel good. She was first introduced to Pilates as part of her professional dance training in Edinburgh, it wasn’t until her final year of training, whilst suffering lower back pain, that she discovered the full array of benefits achievable from a regular practice. Introduced by her physiotherapist for rehabilitation she marvelled at how it lengthened and strengthened her body in the dance studio and eliminated back pain from her life.  She left Scotland in 2009 to travel through Asia and Australia, and settled in Sydney where she completed her Pilates Mat and Studio education with Polestar Pilates. She is fascinated by the human body, the magic of the mind and spirit, and how Pilates addresses each of these entities to create ‘whole body health’. Rachael believes that the Pilates journey is lifelong practice of movement and discovery; reducing the occurrence of injuries, improving awareness and self embodiment, and building a long lean strong body, armoured and prepared for the obstacles presented by life. She takes pride in her ability to communicate on a respectful level with each of her clients and aims to challenge their ideas on what they can achieve from their practice- as well as making each session fun!  In the studio she works with clients to achieve their personal movement and fitness goals, find a balance of strength and flexibility, and increase their sense of self embodiment. On the mat she’ll challenge your focus, breath, strength and flexibility to leave you feeling invigorated!
