Kimberley has three girls and horse riding is a big part of their family life. Her eldest daughters are heavily involved in Eventing. Kimberley became passionate about Pilates for horse riders and of course Ballet starting with her own family’s success of minimising aches and improving alignment and symmetry. She is becoming renowned for Pilates in these two areas and having great success.

Kimberley wanted to be able to share her knowledge with many people whom are unable to attend regular classes in Lismore. Many clients come for week intensive stays, enjoying the beautiful surroundings on the Byron Hinterland and gaining intensive training for their bodies. This process has been wonderful but many people want weekly follow up and therefore she has put together regular blogs and will be having Pilates workouts available online specifically for horse riders, dancers and general population wanting to tone and improve inner health and movement quality.
