Jordanna has extensive dancing experience, including ballet, contemporary dance, modern jazz, hip hop, and tap. After completing high school Jordanna continued her dance studies by completing an Associate Degree in Dance at the Queensland University of Technology. Jordanna opened her studio, previously known as Pilates with Jordanna, in October 2005 and it has grown into one of the most popular and well sought after Pilates studios in Brisbane
Jordanna has combined her dancing expertise with the Pilates Method since 2002 when she started her Pilates career with the Pilates Institute of Australasia (PIA). In 2008 Jordanna completed her full Comprehensive Training Course with Body Arts and Science (BASI). In 2011 and 2013 Jordanna learnt directly from her Mentor Rael Isacowitz (Owner and Founder of Body Arts and Science Int) on the Mentor Program at BASI head quarters, and has completed the Master Program in Dec 2014.
Pilates Studio 64 has grown over the years and from 2018 will be the offical headquarters for 'BASI Pilates Australia'. Teacher training, advanced education and student workshops are held regularly at the studio for all BASI Pilates teachers and trainers. Jordanna is very proud to represent and direct BASI Pilates in Australia alongside her husband Shayne.
Jordanna is also a Bootybarre instructor completing her barre training in 2012 with founder and inspiration Tracey Mallett. Barre classes are so popular throughout America, making it an easy decision to add this program to her studio and for her clientele.
Jordanna thoroughly enjoys seeing her clients progress from their initial beginners or rehabilitation programs to moving freely with functional movement patterns and quality of life. Clients are referred to Jordanna for numerous reasons but continue their Pilates sessions as a way of life.
Since having her first child in 2015, Jordanna loves helping women prepare for pregnancy and post-natal pilates programs. Teaching Pilates for mothers in her studio brings enjoyment and fulfilment every week.
Jordanna is a Principle Trainer with the Pilates Alliance Australia (PAA) and holds a Cert IV in training and assessment.
