Mat Masterclass by Shelly Power

60 Minutes

Access for 7 Days

One-hour Virtual MasterClass with Shelly Power from the USA.

Shelly first came to our shores back in 2000 when we ran our very first Polestar Pilates training course. Over the years, she has become one of the most integral International Educators to train our local community and also our local Education team.

Shelly has been to New Zealand numerous times and our community really understands and aspires to the deep expertise and knowledge that she so generously shares – in our world she is known as the “Pilates whisperer”.

All of us who have met her and have done courses with her can bring out of our tool box an abundance of Shelly’s images and cues.

Prior to Covid Shelly travelled the world extensively to all the Polestar Licensee regions to offer workshops, courses and updating of the Education teams.

You will see her regularly with Brent Anderson on the Pilates Hour that they so generously offer Fridays at 7am which is free to anyone.

She is like a sister to us and it’s an honour and real privilege to offer this “must-attend” Masterclass to you all!

Registration fee $30
