Leon Green

Having always had an interest in science, health and exercise, and with a love for interacting with people, Leon gravitated towards physiotherapy because it allows him to pursue all of those interests and at the same time, have a positive impact on the people that he meets.

Leon completed his undergraduate Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Ballarat and graduated in 2012, then undertook his Masters of Physiotherapy at the University of Queensland, graduating in 2015.

He grew up in South Gippsland on a dairy farm, and since he had a lot of older brothers and sisters who lived in and around Melbourne, it felt right to be closer to family and friends, making the formal move to the big city.

Getting to meet new people every day, Leon enjoys hearing his clients’ different stories, learning new things from them and helping his them through a challenging time in their life.

He has a keen interest in the multifactorial nature of pain, especially as it relates to persistent pain. “It’s a really interesting process of unpacking all the contributing factors that build into someone’s issue and providing solutions for that. A goal with my work is to provide simple solutions for complex problems.”

2018 saw Leon complete his first marathon, something that he is very proud of, having a strong passion for running and exercise. He also plays three different instruments!

Teri Glazer
Pilates Instructor

She has always loved practicing Pilates herself and now loves seeing the benefits Pilates provides to her clients – postural awareness, flexibility, strength and all round fitness!

“We live in a world where there is a lot of sitting for long hours, focusing on computers and driving, and unfortunately our postures are affected by this sedentary lifestyle. I hope that by creating postural awareness and getting people moving they are able to be more in-tune with their posture and body.”

Teri loves seeing the smile on her clients’ faces after they have completed a Pilates class.

“That particular smile reserved for a class that leaves them feeling mentally and physically challenged, happier and stronger!”

Teri’s grounded upbringing and the love and support of her big family ensures she genuinely cares about her clients, and she enjoys seeing smiles on their faces, whether it’s through a great Pilates class or just a good chat.

Alana Shaw
Pilates Instructor

Alana has been practicing Pilates since 2013 when a friend dragged her along to a mat class. She instantly fell in love and has never looked back!

As a myotherapist, Alana has always used exercise prescription to help continue her client’s recovery so it was only natural that she combines her personal love for Pilates with her professional career.

I love the idea of working with people to get them out of pain and doing what they love from the beginning of their treatment plan all the way through to returning to what ever it is that makes them happy. “I love the diverse way [Pilates] can be used to help people feeling healthier, happier and stronger, no matter their current skills.”

Alana completed her Matwork certification with Studio Pilates in 2019 and now uses her Pilates training for fitness as well as in a rehabilitation setting. Alana is also currently completing her reformer training with Polestar Pilates International.
