Lydia, physiotherapist and Pilates instructor is originally from the UK and has been living in Brisbane, Australia for the past 8 years. She qualified from Liverpool University in 2005, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiotherapy. She has since built up valuable skills in the UK treating a wide range of acute, sub-acute and chronic musculoskeletal problems, in both a hospital and private practice environment.
Her special interests include low and upper back pain, including antenatal and prenatal back care, tendonosis and shoulder pain. She also strongly believes in the use of the Pilates method in rehabilitation from injury or as a preventative measure. She finds it to be an incredibly effective rehabilitation tool.
During Lydia’s classes, our mind will be educated, your body will be stimulated and your soul will be inspired.
Lydia aims to treat not just the injury, but to also work with the client to develop appropriate strategies and exercises to help prevent re-occurrence of these injuries and for long-term self-management. Lydia is trained to use acupuncture based dry needling for treatment of musculoskeletal problems, and finds it very useful in treating back, neck, shoulder and knee pain, including arthritis.
Every class you will take of Lydia’s is an opportunity to tap into her extensive knowledge of the human body, different pathologies and functional movement. Don’t let her lovely British accent fool you, she will work you hard and make you find muscles you didn’t know existed!
She has developed our online 4-week Postnatal Pilates program.
