CELIA JONES

Celia was one of those kids who just couldn't sit still. From an early age, she immersed herself in an array of physical activities – from tennis and gymnastics to dance classes – where she unknowingly began her journey into the study of how the human body was meant to move. In 2001 after Celia had been injured whilst mugged overseas, she began her full time teacher training under Grand Master Teacher/Trainer, Cynthia Lochard in Surry Hills, Sydney. She was certified in 2002 by none other than the Joseph Pilates protégée, Romana Kryzanowska. She has been teaching – and preaching! - Pilates ever since, whilst also raising a family. Celia brings passion, laughter, unwavering technique and her contagious energy to every class. She has both a Pilates Inc. and a Romana’s Pilates certification. She believes in the power of Joseph Pilates original work and sticks as closely and as devoutly as she can to the work. Celia teaches privately from her home studio in Diamond Creek, a suburb in Melbourne, Australia. She has embraced teaching online sessions and workshops all over the globe. Having nearly 20 years of Pilates practice in her body, Celia thrives on playful and childlike movements, like inversions and finds it almost impossible to choose her favourite apparatus to practice on. She is a firm believer that Pilates has the power to heal and nourish the mind, body and the spirit.
