Owner - Accredited APMA Level 2 Teacher
As a teenager Tamara was diagnosed with severe scoliosis and had to wear a full back brace for 3 years. When the brace eventually came off she was so weak she could barely stand up. She started practicing the Pilates Method to regain core strength, maintain mobility in the spine and improve posture - elements still fundamental to her practice and teaching approach today. Through Pilates Tamara’s unlocked a life she didn’t think possible – she can run, swim, ride and live an active life comfortably! In 2012 after studying to be a qualified teacher, she founded T Form Pilates to help others gain the freedom to live an active pain free life.
