A Bit About Sano
My Story. My Vision. My Values.
Sano Pilates & Wellness was founded on a passion to make movement and self care available to all.
Heather's vision is to provide an inclusive environment to help you reconnect your body and mind, leaving you feeling confident in your own abilities.
Remarkable, I want to show you just how remarkable you are, help you see your brilliance, embrace it, and live from it. Let that spine inside you shine.
Fun, I aim to offer a fun place to be and a fun thing to do!
Individual, I encourage modifications and props to suit each and every individual as no two bodies are ever the same.
Compassionate, I recognise that most people have an underlying niggle, injury, or condition (mental or physical) that can make movement difficult. Instead of ignoring these and cracking on I embrace these differences and are 100% invested in you overcoming those challenges.
Making a Difference, I want to make a difference to my clients, my community, and our environment.
I’m Heather and I run Sano Pilates and Wellness. I am a Beauty Therapist with over 20 years of experience in the wellness industry and also a Pilates instructor. I am passionate about helping people improve their own health either through Pilates or self-care treatments and workshops.
I have a rare genetic disease that has been transformed by the power of Pilates and self-care. My condition is commonly known as Brittle Bones and it causes a mutation in the way my body produces collagen making my bones and tissue very delicate and susceptible to breaking or damage. Practicing Pilates daily along with self-care techniques have allowed me to carefully strengthen the muscles around my bones helping me become physically strong.
Pilates has transformed my body, from a rehabilitation patient to physically strong and confident. With the help of reformer and mat Pilates and massage, today I am the strongest I have ever been and have managed to stay (mostly!) injury-free.
Although I cannot change my genetic makeup my experience in the wellness industry and Pilates has made me passionate about helping people push past any physical limitations safely and not accepting that those limitations will define you and what you can achieve to improve your overall health and wellbeing. I look forward to working with you on your wellness journey.
