In Port Macquarie, overlooking the Hastings River, you will find Bodiline Studio. Established in 1999 the studio has become well known for its friendly and inspiring environment and also as a venue for excellence in teaching and practise of the Traditional Pilates method. With stunning river views and sea breezes blowing through the studio, Bodiline truly offers the perfect place for you to learn and immerse yourself, thanks to the expertise of the studio owner and Tensegrity course provider, Carolyn Howard. Carolyn started her Pilates journey over 18 years ago when living in Tasmania. A keen runner, Carolyn had sustained an injury and was told by her medical practitioner to stop running. Thankfully, her osteopath recommended Pilates for her injury rehabilitation and she was immediately captivated by the mind / body connection of the practice. Carolyn is a Principal Trainer in the Pilates method, the highest level of membership from the Pilates Alliance – received in recognition of her experience and qualifications.
