Catherine Giannitto - Licensee for Polestar Australia
Catherine has many years of training experience, both as a dance instructor (8 yrs) and corporate consultant (13 yrs) but decided to pursue a career in Pilates after sustaining a back injury that required ongoing rehabilitation. She opened her Pilates Studio in Manly NSW in 2002 and not long after commenced her relationship with Polestar Pilates. Catherine is heavily involved in the Pilates community in Australia, being a committee member of the Pilates Alliance of Australasia. She understands the importance of on-going training and keeping up to date with the latest rehabilitative techniques. Catherine has been conducting specialised pre and post pregnancy classes at her studio and her excitement in this area is even more fulfilled now that she has two small daughters.
