After a successful 2016 Conference in Melbourne, it is with great pleasure that the APMA announces the 2018 APMA Retreat to be held in the beautiful Yarra Valley on the 14 - 16 September 2018.

The RACV Country Club, Healesville located just over 50 minutes from the CBD in the heart of the Yarra Valley is a world away from city distractions and is the ideal location for our Pilates Retreat. Unique event spaces boasting spectacular views over the great dividing range with plentiful amounts of natural light and contemporary stylish accommodation ensure that delegate registrations will embrace the opportunity of a retreat style conference enabling them to take a break from every day life and embrace the Pilates community the 2018 Retreat will provide.

Following the success of our previous national conferences, we expect that the 2018 Retreat will continue to develop the high level of professionalism and quality education of members of the Australian Pilates community. We have always invited highly regarded International and Australian presenters from a variety of backgrounds to ensure a diversity of information and topics for discussion. Our featured high profile International presenters in Maya Aubrey and Siri Dharma Galliano will generate great interest amongst the APMA Membership and wider Pilates Community. Conferences organized in the past by the APMA were sold out with delegates from all over Australia and Australasia.

MICHELLE REDMAN

Michelle Redman could be described as a bit of an explorer; she has one of those minds that loves to learn new things! Over the years, she has specialised in a number of areas (Personal training, yoga. Nia, meditation, nutrition, Pilates,nursing, art/sculpting) and now gets to blend the learnings from all these disciplines into my practice and teaching as a ‘movement therapist’. The overlapping skills complement each other, with movement being at the heart of each. And her focus is on finding the unique mix of what your body needs, because each of our bodies differ, as do our interests.

Most of us benefit from a good combination of mental and physical training – be that cardio or stillness, stretching or core work. Michelle has created a series of classes and workshops that incorporate a mix of elements that are achievable for all levels of fitness. Michelle's approach is to help you check in with where you are each time we meet, and work out what you need, and that’s where she is able to call on all her experiences to offer a holistic, well-rounded service.

Ultimately Michelle's mission is to help you bring out the best in you; to grow further, be agile and stronger, breathe deeper, be flexible and stretch longer, eat wiser, think clearer, and most importantly get you to enjoy taking responsibility for your health, nutrition and well being.
