Diandra Andersen -
Instructor

Diandra has always been very active, engaging in a variety of sports ranging from gymnastics and trampoline to softball and swimming. She is a keen runner and has completed two marathons in the last ten years. After seven months of strict bed-rest during a difficult twin pregnancy, Diandra discovered Pilates as a way to restore her strength and flexibility. It also helped her recover from diastasis recti, which she suffered as a result of the pregnancy. Diandra was inspired by how Pilates helped her regain her health and functionality, and this in turn motivated her to undergo her teacher training in order to help others.

Before motherhood and her journey to fitness, Diandra was in the corporate world, working in Marketing and Communications in Australia, Germany and Singapore.
