Master instructor Tam O’Reilly

Hey, I’m Tamara (pronounced Tam-ra just to be difficult!) and I’ve been a Pilates geek since 1998, first starting Pilates as a young dancer. I went on to work professionally as a dancer and aerialist for many years, during this time, Pilates kept me strong and injury free until I decided to go skiing one day – but that’s a story for another time!

Over the past 27 years I have completed four different comprehensive Pilates teacher training programs, learning from some of the biggest names in the business. I have a wealth of knowledge to draw on, and if you have a Pilates question, I’m pretty sure I can answer it.

I am very proud to be an educator for Balanced Body here in Australia and hope to introduce you and your staff to Balanced Body education very soon

I look forward to working together to build a strong community of quality instructors in an ever growing Pilates industry!
