In the spotlight is our loveable pilates instructor Chris Kelly who has attention to detail like no other!
What does optimal health mean to you?
Physical, mental and emotional alignment – returning and maintaining one’s state of equilibrium creates the best environment for overall healing.
What do you love about the work you do?
Having a naturally curious mind, I love working with people from all walks of life and creating a space for information and experiential sharing. To be able to do this as my work and to be a part of their journey of empowerment to bettering their health is a true privilege. And in Clinical pilates, I have found the perfect complement to express my creativity through movement and problem-solving the best approach to treatment through biomechanics.
Favourite condition/s to treat?
My enjoyment/appreciation in treatment is not necessarily confined to a condition – it is always about the person that is in front of me at that moment in time.
Favourite way to move your body?
I enjoy exploring many realms of mindful movement, both new and familiar. At the moment, I include a regular practice of pilates (exploring both contemporary and classical), yoga and Ido Portal. Mindful movement has always resonated with me, and I appreciate the importance and functionality of understanding primitive movement patterns.

Your ‘must do’ daily health practice?
Though I do not have a conscious ‘must do’ practice, I find myself indirectly practicing a moment of gratitude at some point throughout the day.
