After studying sports science at The University of Western Australia in 2011, Jubilee completed his physiotherapy degree at Curtin University where he showed a keen interest in paediatrics in his final year placement. As a result of original yoga stories that he wrote and used as an innovative treatment tool for his young patients, he was awarded the APA Paediatric Physiotherapy Student of the Year 2017.
“I always wanted to work in a hands on role and also have a way of seeing the best in people even if they don’t see it themselves. I wanted to use these traits in conjunction with my role as a group fitness instructor to empower people to be their best selves. Physiotherapy enables me to combines all of these.”
Since graduating, Jubilee has combined his keen interests in human movement with his clinical skills as a physiotherapist to work in private practice physiotherapy, treating a wide variety of musculoskeletal presentations. He especially enjoys working with those who suffer from gym or exercise related restrictions, educating his clients on optimising lifestyle factors to reduce pain and treating spine related presentations such as low back pain or neck conditions.
“I like being able to interact with people all day. I love that though these interactions I am able to change someone’s day or week and tangibly improve their quality of life. This makes it more than a job to earn money – it’s fulfilment for me as an individual.”
Jubilee also undertakes a leadership role in the group fitness community as a Body Balance instructor, and having been involved for many years as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer, he is able to fully understand common gym-related injuries.
Jubilee is currently working on a children’s yoga picture book aimed at kids aged 2-8 to introduce them to mindfulness practice and freedom of expression through movement. He also spends his free time in the ocean, 4WDing or camping as much as he can in the summer!
