Established in 2002, Pilates InsideOut is a traditional pilates studio for the present day.
All our sessions are customised for your body
We utilise matwork, the reformer, and all other pilates apparatus according to your needs on the day.
We are Rodney Searle and Jennifer Pohlman. We come to pilates via professional classical ballet training, which gave us a sharp eye for movement.
We understand how to work with imbalances and injuries, and prefer to work directly with you, to afford you the best opportunity of learning how to support and strengthen your body through life’s ages, stages, and challenges. We believe in your body’s potential, at core level.
Sessions are by appointment only, as they are personalised
Private (1:1), then shared (maximum 3 clients per session). No timetable’s or group classes.
Many people come to pilates after trying everything else – and never look back. ‘Why didn’t I start this 20 years ago’ – is often wondered out loud. The true pilates approach will always be different to every other fitness regime.
Pilates done well rewards you with muscle control, increased suppleness, core connection, increased circulation, movement economy, and a clearer mental outlook.
Originally professional ballet dancers, educated in various styles of pilates, with decades of experience feeling and teaching movement – Rodney Searle and Jennifer Pohlman brought pilates to Coolangatta-Tweed Heads in 2002.
Rodney trained in gymnastics, ballet, and judo as a child and teen, then pursued professional ballet training under the Queensland Ballet, then at the Australian Ballet School.
He achieved his Advanced RAD, and represented Australia in Japan for the RAD’s 75th Anniversary. At professional level, Rodney had numerous ballet works choreographed on him, and he was often partnered with some of Australia’s leading ballerinas. Rodney also danced and toured with the Queensland Ballet Company.
Pilates was a part of Rodney’s ballet training at the Australian Ballet School, under Andrew Baxter. He found pilates especially effective in rehabilitating various injuries and re-conditioning his whole body and mind for return to the stage. It was natural instinct to build himself a reformer and acquire instructor certification. Read more
Jennifer fell in love with ballet at age 10. She pursued professional ballet training under the Queensland Ballet, then at the Victorian College of the Arts, where she attained a Bachelor of Dance. Pilates became a twice-weekly regime throughout Jennifer’s dance training, initially under Craig Phillips, then Robyn Fynmore. Pilates conditioning played a predominant role in managing Jennifer’s chronic spinal and pelvic injuries, and in shaping her form for return to performance level. So inspired by her teachers, and the positive impact of pilates, Jennifer sought instructor training in the late ‘90s. Read more
