Presenter — Tara Anderson
Tara graduated from UniSA with a Masters in Physiotherapy in 2010. She immediately commenced further studies in Pilates and obtained a Certificate in Pilates from Polestar in 2010. Tara has been working in private practice for over 11 years and has an interest in Women’s Health and low back pain.
Tara finds Pilates to be an essential aspect of work as a physiotherapist because it is an effective way to teach core activation and retrain motor control post-injury. For nearly 12 years, Tara has been teaching Pilates to both clients and new physiotherapists. Training physiotherapists to teach Pilates is a passion of Tara’s because she believes it will help them become better clinicians and help their own bodies cope with the physical demands of being a physiotherapist.
