Welcome to Body Harmony Pilates Central Coast BLOG site.
We have moved to a new location in Wamberal. I hope that everyone likes it and please don't hesitate to give any feedback regarding our new location.
I need to say a very big Thank You to Back-fit Clinics (our previous location) and hope their new location in the Hunter Valley works out well.
Back-fit was a great place to share my passion for self-care through movement via the Pilates Method of exercise. But it was also a great place for me personally, as I received much needed support for my overall health.
I am very thankful for ALL of the dedicated people that have helped me manage my health over the years.
I have needed support due to my Auto-Immune Illness. This left me weak and lethargic after my second child. Exercise and a variety of other support from Doctors and Allied Health Professionals have been ESSENTIAL in managing and improving my Auto-Immune Illness.
Exercise is my favourite Medicine and I highly recommend it!! Getting back on your feet and feeling strong again is so wonderful. Being able to get back into life and the activities I love means so much and I am forever grateful for the wonderful support. Improving your health does take time and patience with yourself. Having an Auto-Immune Illness is a roller coaster ride but having positive and encouraging support is so beneficial. I hope that I can share the many good things I have learned with my clients from all of the support and guidance I have received.
Also thank you to my clients, sharing my passion for self care through exercise is so important for many reasons! Thank you for your patience and understanding with the location changes.

I am excited to be offering a free Pilates Matwork class inside Lorna Jane Erina on Wednesday the 15th April at 6pm. The class will also include the use of small equipment such as resistance bands and the small Pilates ball. I am looking forward to meeting everyone that may be interested in this class, and supporting you in taking care of your body. Also Lorna Jane will be open a little longer for those attending the class and wishing to purchase anything before the class commences. Bookings are essential as there are limited spots. Please contact Lorna Jane Erina or Frances from Body Harmony Pilates to make a booking. Please bring your own mat.
Listen to Your Body
Another saying I love! It makes sense. Listen to YOUR Body. We are the only ones that really know how our body is feeling after exercise or food. Make note of what makes you feel great. We live in a world of so many conflicting opinions, don’t do this, don’t eat that, etc. It seems there is a war of opinions, egos, diets and information. When we turn it around and starting noticing what makes us feel good, it will reinforce the actions that are right for us.
Many of us commit to exercise so that we can still fit into our favourite pair of jeans. I know that definately motivates me. But over the last 8 years, exercise has meant a great deal more.
As a child, teenager and adult it was always for the pure enjoyment and adventure. After my children, exercise became my medicine. My thyroid health issues were no surprise as it is a common issue in my family. I took the time to read Thyroid Health by Dr. Sandra Cabot. Whilst I do not believe in self diagnosis, and always consult with my Doctor regarding health issues. I found lots of tips in that book to help with my health. The obvious ones are to eat fresh fruit and veges, and drink lots of water.
