Lauren was first introduced to Pilates in Melbourne in 2016 where she began attending reformer Pilates classes at a studio across the road from her workplace to compliment her gym resistance training – and she hasn’t looked back since!

Her passion for health and fitness grew from here and saw her complete a Cert iii & iv in Fitness, as well as certificates in Mat, Reformer and Antenatal Pilates.

Lauren now has 3+ years of Pilates instructing under her belt, and her absolute goal is to help her clients feel comfortable, proud of themselves, and to prove that Pilates really is for everyone!

Jody has felt the enormous benefits of Pilates in her own body, and so she wanted to share these benefits with others, deciding to undertake Polestar Pilates training, qualifying in 2015 as a Matwork instructor and in 2018 with the higher-level Diploma in Polestar Pilates Studio and Rehabilitation.

Jody enjoys the experience of helping others attain their health and fitness goals through Pilates and Aerial. Jody loves to travel and (before Covid) used to often meet up with her adult daughter in far flung places for adventure holidays. She is an animal “tragic” and is rarely without a rescue dog sharing her life.

Pilates South Perth Instructor Velina Klyots started with Remedial Pilates in order for her to return to her competitive dancing.

Velina Klyots


Originally from Uzbekistan, Velina grew up to become a National Champion in Ballroom and Latin dancing. Coming to Australia, she continued in competitive dancing and became a dance teacher. A serious back injury brought her to Remedial Pilates, enabling her to return to competitive dancing. Having seen the benefits first-hand, she was inspired to learn more about Pilates as an Instructor so she can help others in the same way.

Pilates Instructor Sophie


Instructor – Reformer & Mat

Pilates and movement has always been a major part of Sophie’s life as she grew up a ballet dancer and trained full time for 4 years (in hopes to become a professional ballerina!). Covid unfortunately put a stop to those plans and she decided to start her instructor course through Polestar Pilates shortly after.

Sophie knew how much Pilates had benefitted her as an elite athlete and wanted to share it with as many of you as possible. Coming out of the ballet world, she is extra passionate about body positivity, strength and confidence and wants to help every single client feel their absolute best, mentally and physically, after leaving one of her classes. She is also commencing her studies in Nutrition this year to complement her current role in the health & wellbeing industry.

Sophie has now been teaching for 3 years and has never looked back! She can’t wait to continue meeting and sweating with you all.

Shannelle Roos

Instructor – Reformer

She’ll be guiding you through stretch and meditation classes, using Pilates techniques to help her clients relax and center themselves.

Shannelle has developed a unique teaching style that is both challenging and nurturing. She loves her job and looks forward to creating a supportive and inclusive class environment at the SLC studios.


Instructor – Aerial & Mat

For the past nine years, Angelika has been devotedly practising yoga and pilates, finding relief, balance, and strength on her mat. Being on the mat became her sanctuary, providing a space for self-reflection, mindfulness, and personal growth.

With her knowledge and desire to share the transformative power of being on the mat, she began teaching three years ago. Driven by her love of moving and flowing her body it was inevitable for her to elevate her practice into the air and expand into the aerial realm.

Outside of the studio, Angelika contributes to the development and improvement of the urban environment. You can catch her outside the studio around Perth with her white fluff ball, Cinnamon!


Instructor – Reformer

Alinta’s journey into health and fitness began with a yoga obsession, however it was the introduction to Pilates that sparked a profound change in her body. This fuelled her decision to pursue Pilates teacher training in 2016, undertaking Reformer Teacher Training with Polestar Asia during her time living in the Philippines. 

Beyond the reformer, Alinta’s life is a vibrant mix of global exploration and cinematic creativity. Armed with a Bachelor of Film & TV and an Advanced Diploma of Performing Arts, her background includes movement training in the Alexander Technique, Suzuki Method, Iyengar Yoga, and diverse dance and movement styles. 

As a teacher, Alinta brings a dynamic and enjoyable approach to her classes, infusing them with both challenge and focus on alignment and technique. She loves working with clients to achieve positive transformations in their bodies, helping them to reach their personal fitness goals.
