Originally from New Zealand, Anna is a technically trained dancer and dance teacher and was a professional performer (jazz/cabaret/burlesque) before becoming qualified as a Pilates instructor here in Melbourne.


Following a dance-related injury more than 15 years ago, Anna commenced her Pilates journey, and Pilates quickly became a staple in her weekly routine.


Anna is a strong advocate of the Pilates Method and its benefits - not only in relation to injury prevention, strength and performance enhancement for elite athletes and dancers, but also to improve the safety and efficiency of functional movement, improve posture and enhance general wellbeing for all bodies in everyday life.

In 2018, Anna took the brave step of moving from instructor to business owner and the studio formerly known as Core Candy Chapel Street was born! Just over a year later the studio changed its name to Anna's very own Chapel Street Physique.

Anna's expertise and passion for movement is evident in all her classes (she teaches across both the Pilates/Barre and Fitness styles at CSP) as she aims to educate as well as inspire through her teaching. Her classes are creative but also functional, promising to be body changing through challenges to lower and upper body strength, stability, balance, control, coordination and stamina.


Anna is also a music lover of varied genre which is evident in all her playlists! Most of all she wants you to have fun in her classes. Be prepared to sweat and to laugh! She can't wait to train with you. 



Alex has been dancing for as long as she can remember, and because of that, movement has always been a part of her life.


Originally from Adelaide, Alex grew up training to be a ballerina, and was dancing professionally by the age of 15. She later developed a passion for Music Theatre which led to a successful audition for the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), where she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree at the end of 2018.

She was first introduced to pilates at around age 9 - taking Mat Pilates classes alongside her ballet training - and her love for it only grew. Whilst Alex studied full time at WAAPA, she relied heavily on both Pilates and Barre classes, to strengthen, stretch, prevent injury, and create a lean physique. This became a passion and she soon became qualified to instruct. 


Alex is our Online Studio Manager. You can catch her amazing virtual classes via our very own Online Studio: At Home Physique
