Fiona Davies discovered the Pilates method in 2001.  After the birth her second child and subsequently experiencing back pain, Fiona’s osteopath recommended Pilates to help stabilise and strengthen her core musculature. Well it worked!

Fiona was hooked on the way it improved her body and how it made her feel.

She developed a passion for Pilates and really wanted to help others feel flexible and strong too. So after 15yrs in the corporate world and after the birth of her 3rd child, she set about making this happen…..

Fiona attained a cert III in Fitness and Cert IV in Matwork Pilates (PITC) in 2008, teaching Pilates Matwork classes throughout Newcastle and Lake Macquarie and then completed her Diploma of Professional Pilates Instruction (91491NSW) in 2010.

In Feb 2014 Beachside Pilates Studio was established. A fully equipped boutique Pilates Studio offering personalised programs to achieve your goals. Fiona’s passion for Pilates is evident in her continual professional development, materials and equipment purchases ! She is fully committed to her clients and loves helping people move well.
