Louise Taube
I grew up in a very small mining town in Queensland. I always loved movement and the intense feeling of freedom it gave me. A commitment to movement was a founding drive going forward in my life and I decided to study dance at QUT in Brisbane. ******* I am a proud recipient of many Arts grants from the Australia Council for the Arts, Arts Victoria, the Foundation for Young Australians, and The Ian Potter Foundation during my dance career.*******​I started getting injuries. I started to want to put back into my body that the many years of hard dancing had taken out of it.*******​Everything began to change and now everything I do strives for the health and vitality in my own body, and the health of my clients. For me, it means striving to nourish my body with positive movement experiences and to keep things simple.******* I was first drawn to Pilates as a method of injury prevention, and conditioning for dance. I loved the overall symmetry and balance it achieves within the body. Little did I know this would lead to the development of Taube Pilates. ******* I discovered that Pilates works from the inside out. Pilates exercises initiate from the pelvic floor and the transversus abdominis engaging. The transversus abdominis is the deepest layer of abdominal muscles, it wraps around your torso like your own internal corset. By engaging the transversus during each exercise you will strengthen your centre as well as develop a flatter structure to your abdominal muscles. I love how Pilates works all the muscles in the body without overloading the joints. ******* After suffering a knee injury with my dance career, I used mat-work exercises with props like the Pilates ball, plus equipment such as the cadillac, the Pilates chair and the Pilates reformer that work against spring-loaded resistance to rehabilitate. I did not expect the awesome changes in my body with a more  streamlined figure, strength like never before and more flexibility through my hamstrings. ******* Pilates is used for injury prevention, rehabilitation, to accelerate technique and performance in dance and sport, prenatal and postnatal conditioning, for osteoporosis and building of bone density, general conditioning and well-being. It is for all stages of your life and fitness level. From my experience, for best results a minimum of three studio sessions a week will ensure that your body gains strength and you will improve. Overall you should be doing 4 hours of Pilates per week to really gain optimum results, this could be a combination of home practice as well as studio sessions, trio and or private. *******​The extra effort I make to create inspiring and uplifting experiences for all my clients weather on line or face to face, keeps me motivated. I care for my unique studio cliental, and for my online course participants, as well as the wonderful teachers I meet at my face to face courses. My considered, creative and new choreography will continue to delight and inspire, delivering the wonderful healing power of Pilates direct to your body.
