Susanne Goldin

Exercise Physiologist

Susanne has always been fascinated by the architecture of the human body but is equally intrigued by the power of my mind in healing. Her study, teaching, and most of all her personal practice of yoga and mindfulness have further deepened her understanding of the need to develop a powerful connection of the mind-body-breath to support one’s health, well being, and recovery. Collectively, this allows Susanne to offer her clients evidenced-based and holistic care. 


Kristie Axe

Reformer Pilates Instructor

Qualified and experienced in reformer, mat and studio Pilates as well as yoga and meditation, Kristie brings a holistic approach to her teaching. Kristie’s classes aim to increase fitness whilst building deep core strength, mobilizing joints, improving flexibility and rehabilitating injury.
