Georgie Shand graduated from St Mary’s University with a degree in Sports Rehabilitation in 2008. After suffering from back pain from a fall off a horse at a young age Georgie turned to Pilates.
The rewards were unquestionable with reduced pain and improved body tone; she was sold to Pilates instantly! In 2009 she trained with the Pilates Foundation as a Matwork Teacher, and in 2012 in the Apparatus.
Georgie has completed training in strength and conditioning and more recently has embarked on Joanna Elphinston performance training. This has given Georgie a deeper understanding of movement and functional training.
Georgie has worked with various sports teams and clubs drawing on her own passion for sport as a way of providing thorough rehabilitation and training programs.
Over the years the Pilates training has complemented the injury rehabilitation and added to her skills as a therapist. Georgie currently works with Harlequins Rugby team offering one to one Pilates sessions with the players for injury prevention and management.
