Eliza Garty


Eliza made the solo move to Australia last year from London and instantly started her journey at Nuforma Pilates. Originally attending as a client, Eliza quickly integrated into the studio's family as an instructor.

Eliza's affection for Pilates blossomed following a gymnastics injury, where it proved to be her ultimate remedy. With a diverse background in Sports Coaching, Physiotherapy, and Personal Training, she injects a vibrant energy into the studios atmosphere, and always provides the best music playlists!

From all the exercises the nuforma has to offer, Eliza finds particular joy in anything involving feet in straps!

Maggie Dixon-Best 


Maggie's love for fitness and wellness started at an early age in the world of dance. After travelling the world as a professional dancer, she now shares her passion for Pilates and Yoga through her teaching where she aims to inspire self development through the Mind, Body and Soul. 

Focusing on the importance of connecting the mind to movements, breath work and alignment creating balance and harmony throughout all sessions.

Hannah Dorman


Originally from the UK, Hannah graduated as a Physiotherapist from the University of the West of England in 2017.

Hannah previously played for Southampton FC Ladies but after an unfortunate spinal cord injury her career ended prematurely. She had to go through an extensive rehab which is where she found her love for Pilates. Hannah then went on to become certified in both Mat and Reformer Pilates through the APPI so that she could use her personal experience and formal training to help others achieve their rehab/fitness goals. 

Hannah has always had a passion for helping people and loves being an integral part of rehab journeys whether that's in the treatment room or in the Pilates studio.

Valeria Diverio 


Valeria's wellness journey began as a personal trainer in her younger years. Through fitness challenges and personal transformations, she developed a profound awareness of the mind-body connection, embracing a holistic perspective on happiness, health, and longevity. Pilates captured her heart, motivating her to explore its intricacies as an instructor. Eager to expand her knowledge, Valeria ventured into Reiki and is now on the path to becoming a kinesiologist. 

Her goal is to bring balance, not only to others but also to her own well-being.

Pam Heng


During Pam's long hours of study at law school, then working in international tax, she soon found that exercise was the best way to help her de-stress and relax. After realising that her true passion was in fitness and all things wellness, she decided to leave the corporate industry. For Pam exercising is an "escape" from the chaotic world we live in, she hopes to create this safe space for her classes too.

As a Kiwi, Pam started her teaching journey as a Les Mills instructor. Her love for yoga and pilates then encouraged her to want to progress her studies in this area. Her favourite part about being an instructor is connecting with clients, understanding their needs and what clients would like to achieve whether that be physically or mentally.

Abi Gowenlock

Abi qualified as a BASI Pilates Instructor over 10 years ago and has worked at various reformer studios, yoga studios and physio practices on the Northern Beaches.

With a keen focus on movement precision, she will ensure every movement pattern is precise and aligned, strengthening and stabilising from your core to promote good postural alignment and muscle balance. Exuding warmth and fun, you're sure to love having Abi around.

When not teaching you'll find her wrangling the kids, at the beach or walking the fur baby. 

Jenny Dean

Owner / Director 

A convert to the benefits of reformer pilates for over 20 years, with her depth of knowledge and experience, Jenny knew she was onto a game changer the very first time she tried Nuforma in the UK. With Australia being such a developed and demanding pilates market, she also knew that Australia was well and truly ready for the outstanding performance and workout options it offered. 

Teaming up with Therese's international business and investment experience, Tim's entrepreneurial skills, and combined with her own extensive management skills, for Jenny introducing the Nuformer to Australia was a no brainer.

Jenny's favourite Nuforma exercise: ''Anything using the Nuforma jump board - a great combination of raising the heart rate and focussing on form. I always feel like I've worked hard incorporating the jumpboard into my workouts''.

Therese Keys

Owner / Director 

Therese will happily tell you that pilates has saved her – a number of times. 

A highly driven director and entrepreneur, Therse has worked across the globe in a unique hybrid career including software as a service (SaaS), plus over 25 years in the real estate sector, large commercial shopping centre development and private residential developments. It was only recently it occurred to her that at every challenging stage of her life (of which she will tell you there have been enough), it was Pilates she turned to for both for her mental and physical health and well-being. After discovering the Nuforma on her travels, Therese knew that Sydney was ready to up its game with the most revolutionary Pilates reformer on the planet. 

Therese's favourite Nuforma exercise: ''Definitely the glute and leg workouts on the Nuforma. With the the split carriage I can get so much extra scope''.
