Rebecca Fechtner . B Phty
After spending many childhood and early adult years training as a dancer, Rebecca developed a keen interest in health and movement studies, hence her choice of a career as a physiotherapist. Whilst studying at the University of Queensland, she was influenced by leading researchers undertaking critical research into the field of core stabilization training and its influence in the prevention of injury and rehabilitation of spinal pain. Considering this influence and her history in dance, Rebecca decided to steer her career in the direction of rehabilitation and performance enhancement through core stability training, that is, Pilates.
Rebecca has trained and gained experience in Pilates through numerous institutes throughout the UK and Australia. She has worked as a physiotherapist and Pilates instructor for many years, helping clients with many different backgrounds from elite athletes to clients with neurological dysfunction.
After completing a Cert IV in workplace training and assessment in 2008, Rebecca joined the team at The Pilates Institute of Queensland. She very much enjoys sharing her passion for Pilates with others as a course educator.
