AMANDA BERNSTEINPILATES INSTRUCTOR, KA HUNA MASSAGE THERAPIST & FOUNDER
As a Mum who struggled to recover from an emergency caesarean section, Amanda understands how hard it can be to bounce back to the true pre-baby you and reclaim your inner strength. Pilates helped her through the transition into motherhood both the first time, and then again the second time after her successful VBAC. She is motivated to help other new mothers get through this challenging time in their lives too. Taking pride in focusing on stability prior to mobility, she ensures the class focuses on functional exercises that can be applied to everyday life, all while having fun (and a chat!). Amanda completed her Fundamentals, Matwork and Reformer Pilates courses through the Elixr School of Pilates. She is a SmartyPilates certified instructor for pilates for children aged 3-15 and has a Certificate III in Fitness through FIA Fitnation. Amanda has been participating in Pilates classes since 2003, has completed Ka Huna Level 5 and Lomi Lomi Heartworks 1 at the renowned High Spirits Mette’s Institute (including Polynesian floor massage and stretching, Bone massage and Pregnancy massage), and loves social Latin dance. Amanda is also a Doula, supporting women and couples through pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period. For more details please visit www.EssentialMe.com.au.
