Clinical Rehabilitation Specialist
Dena completed her Studio & Rehab certification with Polestar Pilates Australia and has worked in a wide range of settings, including rehabilitation wards, health and fitness centres and ballet schools. She has a special interest in teaching Pilates and efficient movement skills to dancers and athletes. She is currently the movement specialist for the Australian Synchronised Figure Skating team, and a ballet teacher outside of clinical work.
Dena grew up as a classical dancer, with her professional dance career taking her all over the globe. She began her Pilates instructor training after working as an assistant nurse in the rehabilitation ward and helping patients with their exercises post surgery. Dena’s biggest pleasure in her teaching is seeing her clients of all levels and ages progress and the difference Pilates makes to their lives.
She will be working closely with the physio team to help patients progress beyond rehab.
