By Tess Durack 17 March 2018 — 5:37pm Holly Gibellini-Davis urges world-be teachers to find good mentors. Pilates instructor Holly Gibellini-Davis steps carefully between twenty prone forms, adjusts a shoulder position here, corrects a hip alignment there, guiding her students with vivid images – the spine as a string of pearls, waist wrung out like a wet towel, thigh bone rotating like a pestle in its mortar.

The PAA organised a fabulous event again this year.  The International Conference Center, ICC, Darling Harbor, Sydney was a wonderful venue.  Clean and new, floor space was adequate, as you will be aware Pilates Reformers Cadillac’s etc take up a lot of room plus bodies.  The food provided was scrumptious and the National and International Presenters were superb.
