Physiotherapist & Clinical Pilates
Graduating from her Applied Sciences/Physiotherapy Degree at Sydney University in 2011 Petra dove straight into private practice, spending her weekends on the field managing acute sporting injuries or on the Athletics track assisting competitors.
It was through such varied experiences that Petra’s love of assessing and treating sporting injuries began.
With the desire to improve the long term management of her patients Petra pursued Clinical Pilates training as the perfect solution and addition to her bag of tricks.
Since then Petra has continued to develop her Pilates teaching through self practice, additional courses, along with further training in Women's Health and pre/post natal care.
Petra has a special interest in the management of the weekend warrior; those non-professional athletes who achieve greatness every Saturday on the footy field, around the bay or in the ocean. You name it, Petra wants to improve your performance.
In her time off Petra loves to keep active; walking the bay and attending Barre, Circuit and Reformer classes. She loves nothing more than a good Aperol and cheeseboard with friends/family and tracing her fingers around the globe when planning her next travel adventure.
Petra has experience working with the following:
Sydney University Football Club 2009 - 2011
Balmain Rugby 2013 - 2015
Great Western Sydney Giants (GWS) 2018 - Current
Petra's go to rehab/Pilates exercise is everybody's favourite...the PLANK!
