Georgie graduated from St Mary’s University with a degree in Sports Rehabilitation in 2008. With over a decade of experience Georgie has worked in a variety of settings including gyms, multidisciplinary clinics, and with professional sports teams. This involves helping people suffering from pain and injury with the musculoskeletal system through exercise rehabilitation, movement education, and manual therapy.
Georgie immersed herself in the Pilates matwork training for a year with Pilates Foundation in 2009, and another year in the Apparatus in 2012. Then specialising in Pre and Postnatal Pilates too. With a large number of patients needing more than hands on treatment she finds using Pilates exercises a great way of helping individuals return to their sport or goal. Georgie was the Pilates instructor for Harlequins for two seasons where she worked alongside the medical team to help players return to rugby after injury.
Georgie has a particular love of all things active and is a keen runner, sea swimmer, and netball player. She is passionate about getting you back to your sport or hobby whatever it may be. She has undergone an additional diploma in the John Gibbons Bodymaster Method which has deepened her understanding of the body. And regularly uses the methods taught such as Kinesiology taping, Muscle Energy Techniques, Advance Soft Tissue Techniques, and Dry Needling.
Since having three children her drive has grown to help women in the postnatal period. To educate women on their pelvic floor, diastasis separation (if it has occurred) and the importance of building core strength back up again to cope with the demands children throw at you! With a number of friends having c sections, and the questions that came with it Georgie’s interest grew in how to help c section scars. She started with Emma Holly’s Introduction to ScarWork and the results were so fantastic that Georgie went on to become part of the first group of therapists to be trained as C-Section Scar Specialists with Restore Scar Therapy.
Having previously taught fitness classes to adults and children, in 2020 when lockdown hit Tanya turned to Pilates to keep fit at home and loved it! Taking advice from her physio colleagues she decided to train to teach with APPI (the Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute) as this method would provide a clinical form of Pilates which would be beneficial for many patients.
Paramount in her decision to train was the proven results that Tanya saw for herself. Having sustained a prolapsed cervical disc which left her with muscle weakness and spasms if she overtrained, practising Pilates made a huge difference and demonstrated what excellent results can be achieved.
The APPI Method has taken the original 34 Joseph Pilates exercises and adapted them so they are suitable for patients working at a wide variety of levels, from people who are new to exercise to those who are accomplished athletes. Pilates builds strength, stability, flexibility and a strong core that will help prevent back pain. Everyday tasks become easier and it is an exercise form that can be practised at any age. Tanya has also completed Pilates for Healthy Bones training as she has a special interest in Osteoporosis, how Pilates can help prevent it and how patients with lower bone density can still exercise safely.
Tanya offers 1:1 Pilates sessions and small group classes.
Whilst studying for her Masters in Australia Jodie was able to work alongside some of Australia’s top Olympic Physiotherapists covering a number of disciplines. It was here she first saw the benefits of integrating Pilates with Physiotherapy. She made the decision to study with the Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute (APPI). Jodie regularly incorporates Pilates into her Physiotherapy treatment plans particularly when working with someone from a Women’s Health perspective. Currently, Jodie isn’t offering Pilates as a stand-alone treatment, although she does offer the diagnostic ultrasound core scanning, which we refer to below.
As a clinic, we only offer 1:1 Pilates which allows us to tailor a program to you. We also offer a Core Scanning Service using our Diagnostic Ultrasound Scanner which produces a live image of your core activation. From this assessment, you will understand more about your core and realise what activating it should feel like, giving you the confidence that you are doing it correctly.
Areas Pilates can really help with include –
- Lower Back Pain
- Women’s Health
- Flexibility and Mobility

The team at the Health Hub are great! I’m having ongoing treatment with Kirk for an ankle injury I’ve now had surgery on. He was able to refer me to a great surgeon and supported me the whole way through that process. Since having surgery he has helped me with my rehab and created a tailored plan for my personal needs/goals. I’ve also had treatment with Tina and Sam who were equally brilliant. There’s a running theme with everyone at the Health Hub; they take time to listen to you about your injury/issue and help you to get back to whatever it is that you want to do! I couldn’t recommend the Health Hub enough!
I saw Kirk today regarding a very painful ankle. I found him to be very professional and has a very kind manner. I trust him to help me back to walking properly again soon.
Both myself and my son have been treated here, at the Health Hub. The staff are helpful and really friendly and the decor/ambience calming and professional. We have been treated by both Sam and Kirk – and both have been extremely helpful and knowledgeable, but also flexible and understanding. Kirk’s physio has helped me to make huge progress and reduce daily discomfort/increase flexibility. He has a lovely manner and goes out of his way to put you at ease and help you to progress. I would thoroughly recommend the Health Hub.
I’ve been recommending Sam for years as he has done so much for my mobility. The Health Hub is a very welcoming environment and I enjoy my chats with Maggie – seem to learn something every time! With Covid-19 they are very thorough with their cleansing and wearing of PPE, so patients should feel very safe.
