Abbi Joustra

Hi, I’m Abbi – a lover of the outdoors and all things Pilates. I am a diploma trained instructor with training in Mat Pilates, Barre, Reformer, Cadillac and small studio equipment and I absolutely love sharing the joy and confidence in your body that Pilates brings!

 

I have always been passionate about movement and sports, from doing field hockey, rock-climbing and athletics at school to bush-walking and trail-running. Throughout my passion for staying active and healthy, I have always found that quality mindful movement and Pilates brings me confidence in my body and strength and healing.

 

Pilates has been my go-to when I have faced injuries or health challenges and I love to share with others how to feel confident and strengthened in their own bodies.
