Presenter - Geri Taylor has been teaching fitness since the 1980’s - the era of Jazzercise, Jane Fonda and leg warmers. Twenty years later, when she discovered Pilates, she thought this is the best exercise ever, I have to teach this. Since then Geri has been on a journey of discovery, getting her Advanced Diploma of Pilates, attending workshops and master classes with Pilates most respected instructors, and teaching mat and studio classes, and workshops in Australia, Europe and America. Geri is certified with the PMA, PAA, and Fletcher Pilates. She loves how using the principles of Pilates, combined with current science, makes it possible to give people a safe, fun, effective, educational full body workout.
Geri teaches more than just exercise. She gives people the awareness of how their body works and how to get the best from their bodies. Four years ago she discovered Bowen Therapy, a gentle hands on form of body work that uses rolling motions over specific parts of the body, especially the fascia, to stimulate the natural healing ability of the body. Geri has since completed the Cert IV and Diploma of Bowen Therapy and use Bowen fascial release techniques, and fascial fitness along with Pilates to help every body move well, relaxed, without pain, and with strength, flexibility and awareness. Her current workshop “Pilates and Fascia - Fit Together” is a culmination of years of study and practice, and she is excited to present this practical, entertaining and fascinating workshop.
