Margret Olbrich

As a former competitive gymnast, movement has always been a major part of my life. Pilates helped me maintain strength and mobility through injuries. After a career in media/advertising and two kids, I returned to my passion for movement and gained comprehensive certification through Polestar Pilates in NZ. I tailor sessions to specific goals and outcomes in a safe and fun way, creating a positive movement experience. My classes focus on dynamic alignment and technique to maximise each movement.
