You are missing out on many important occasions, events and activities in life because of your pain.

You are ready to take control of your own health and fitness, with a method of movement that can help you to become pain-free and actually help you to become stronger and fitter than ever before.
Just like you, I had lost control of my health and fitness, was dealing with joint pain, migraines and exhaustion. Every ounce of energy I had went into teaching dance, the rest of the time I was resting or asleep, but usually in a lot of pain. My life was on hold, no one could offer me a solution and I was despondent until a friend insisted I start Pilates.
TO SAY IT CHANGED MY LIFE WOULD BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT.
I gradually regained my strength little by little and my energy levels began to improve. Best of all, if I was having a bad day, my Pilates teacher tailored the program to my needs on that particular day. When I regained my previous fitness level, I stuck with Pilates and became stronger and fitter than ever before. CFS is a condition I will always have to manage and Pilates not only gave me back my life but is ideal for managing the condition too. What if my friend hadn't told me about Pilates? I hate to think of that scenario. I want to be that friend to you. I want you to know that I have been where you are and there is a way out. There is a solution for the pain that has taken over your life.
When I achieved these life-changing results through Pilates, I felt compelled to become a Pilates teacher to help people like you to become pain-free and take back control of their own lives too.
Since 2005, I've helped hundreds of people like you to become pain-free with my personalized approach to Pilates in my brick and mortar studio.
"I've been doing Pilates for the last 7.5 years and have developed a really strong understanding of my body. I know more about the interconnection of various muscles and the need for a holistic approach to strength, recovery from injury and pain management. As a full-time worker and parent of 2 children it has also been a constant activity just for me and ensures that I take some time to focus on what I need.
I'm proud of my ability to manage my back pain and to feel generally stronger. I was told that to manage my back problems that I would need spine surgery. Through consistent and regular Pilates I've learned to manage and nearly alleviate the pain.
If I don't do regular Pilates the pain returns, so this is a good reminder to do something every day. If it wasn't for Pilates I don't think that I would be doing balance squats after my knee arthroscopy or planks after a broken wrist!
Joanne is supportive and has an incredible way of identifying the best ways to build strength and recover from injuries or chronic pain. She is able to explain how to do exercises clearly and to enable you to really focus in on the parts of the body that you are working on. I'm really enjoying using JS Mind Body Pilates online.
I have a private session with Joanne once a week via Skype and use the on-demand videos in between. I've particularly found the ways that Joanne describes the exercises really easy to understand and follow. I also like being able to take Joanne with me on holidays so that I can keep doing my Pilates when I'm away! This ensures that I can manage all my niggles and keeps me focussed."
Pilates has opened my mind to the importance of moving and stretching particularly being in a desk job working long hours sitting in the same position. It has made me realise how important movement and stretching is for our bodies. The difference I feel after doing a Pilates session post a long day at work is amazing and I have a much better nights sleep. I'm proud that I have stuck with it for than 13 years. There have been periods in my life where I have stopped for periods of time due to other priorities but my body soon lets me know through joint pain and stiffness it was Pilates I needed to prioritise, and it was right. Pilates has given me the knowledge of how to maintain body movement and flexibility as I get older. I am in my early 50's now and Pilates has and will continue to enable my movement, strength and balance as I continue to age. I have learnt to manage pain with Pilates as opposed to reaching for pain relief medication. As recently as yesterday my knee felt stiff and was aching so I did 20 minutes of Pilates and was able to increase my movement and reduce my pain.
Joanne caters to every individuals personal needs and will spend time to understand how you are feeling, aches and pains, stiffness & general wellbeing so that you get the best possible outcomes from Pilates. Joanne is professional and patient and cares about the outcomes for her clients. I love JS Mind Body Pilates online. When I moved away from Sydney I was worried about not being able to keep up my Pilates under Joanne's guidance so when the online Pilates studio became an option I jumped at the chance! The sessions keep me on track and Joanne is right there by my side (on Skype) so I am well supported. Joanne sometimes runs Pilates challenges for a set period like 20 minutes of Pilates each day for 10 days which are lots of fun and you get the chance to win a free Pilates session!

Life is too short to be living with debilitating pain.
So many of my current clients look back to when they first started Pilates with me and the majority say they were putting up with pain that was directly limiting their enjoyment of life. Pain was in control of their lives.
Many gave up sports they loved, some couldn't work and fell behind in their careers. Others couldn't hold their young grandchildren without setting off their back pain. Sadly, most of them also believed their pain was permanent. It was their lot in life and they would just have to learn to live it. Fortunately, this is now all in the past for them as they are pain-free through Pilates and living life on their own terms. But what about you? You don't have to keep putting up with your pain either. The longer you wait to take action with Pilates, the longer you will miss out on everything that makes life worthwhile. Don't put it off any longer, life is too short to be in pain. Start you journey to pain-free living with Pilates today.
A quick fix for your pain or for someone else to do the work for you.
Pilates is an active modality which means that you have to be committed to your training sessions if you want to see results and become pain-free. The length of these sessions can be tailored to your individual needs, but when you are making changes to the way you stand, move and connect with your body, consistency is key and there are no shortcuts. It usually takes about 10 sessions, so around 10 hours of Pilates before you start to see changes and some results. It can be earlier for some people and slightly longer for others, everyone is different. If you are open to change and willing to learn, as I've seen firsthand with my clients, there are no limits to how far you can progress.
