Accredited Exercise Physiologist MESSA
STOTT PILATES® Certified Instructor
BSc Kin, University of Alberta, Canada
Originally from Canada, Stacey travelled to Perth in 2007 to complete her degree in Human Movement, and began her career as an Exercise Physiologist in early 2008. The fantastic clinic that kept Stacey in Perth gave her invaluable experience working with some of Perth's top Orthopaedic Surgeons, rehabilitating patients before and after a range of surgeries including joint replacements, tumour removals and tendon repairs.
Initially using gym-based exercise and hydrotherapy to rehabilitate her clients, Stacey was constantly seeking different modalities of movement to improve her client's results. Stacey soon discovered Pilates and was amazed by the benefits she observed with her clients and experienced in her own body. She moved on to one of Perth's biggest Pilates and Physiotherapy companies to immerse herself in Pilates training. This job gave Stacey insight and experience working with a wide variety of clientele from small children to a range of athletes; cyclists, footballers and netballers. In 2012 Stacey became a Certified STOTT Pilates Instructor, well versed in private studio sessions as well as group teaching.
On her return from maternity leave, Stacey was keen to develop a service that united her Exercise Phyisology knowledge with her Pilates practice, and help people to increase the quality and quantity of movement in their daily lives. She believes that by “moving more” people can improve their mental, physical and emotional well-being, and by “moving better” people can enjoy a better quality of life and rehabilitate all aspects of their health.
Stacey is a self-professed nerd and is currently learning everything there is to know about fascia, functional biomechanics, and rehabilitating postpartum women. When she’s not learning or testing out new exercises on her small baby, she’s usually making the most of the great outdoors; enjoying a kite surf, out for a walk or camping with the family.
