About Ashlee

Originally from Canberra, Ashlee is a professional dance artist who began practicing Pilates while studying her physically demanding Bachelor of Dance at the Victorian College of the Arts (University of Melbourne) in 2009. Since graduating Ashlee has worked as a dance performer, improviser, choreographer and teacher across Australia and New Zealand, receiving funding and support from federal and local government bodies. Ashlee has found Pilates to be an invaluable part of her ongoing training to support her fitness and wellbeing throughout her career.

Ashlee became a Polestar Pilates instructor to combine her love of Pilates and teaching movement. She is especially interested in how the body learns and strives to help her clients find more efficient ways to move and avoid injury during day-to-day, sports, and recreational activities. Ashlee champions Pilates for its versatility and adaptability and truly believes in the method’s ability to help anyone reach their goals. She has four years’ experience teaching Pilates in a variety of settings including working with athletes from Hawthorn Triathlon Club and Old Xaverians Athletics club, secondary students at Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School and clients at physiotherapy studios in Melbourne.

Ashlee has recently returned to Canberra and is looking forward to rejoining the Pilates and Dance communities here. She is currently instructing Mat, Reformer and Semi-privates at Clinic 88 Pilates and is also a Polestar Pilates Mentor, assisting Pilates students who are completing their Cert IV course. Ashlee also loves looking after her plants, making jewellery, travelling, playing board games and working towards a zero-waste lifestyle
