Nikki Ciotola

I believe Pilates applies to every modality in life, it can reach every age group, it can be applied to basically life, a healthier, stronger and anti-ageing life

For the first 20 years after completing a Honors Degree in Graphic Design. Nikki devoted her life to the world of “Branding”. For 17 of those years she opened and operated a success Graphic Design studio alongside her passion for movement.

Nikki was initially trained in Taekwondo reaching a 2nd Dan level and developed and delivered a life skills program for children between the ages of 4-8 year olds.
Her personal training exceeded from an external Martial Art to an internal Martial Art being BaGua for a further 6 years. Alongside her Martial Arts passion, Nikki maintained her training with Pilates as her secret weapon for success. Her passion for Pilates lead her to completing an APMA Pilates Instructor course in 2013 and is now qualified as a Level 2 Pilates Instructor.

Her passion to create, teach, communicate, care, motivate, extract and build are all elements that fuel the passionate engine that drives her to achieve so many things. She always wants to know…how can we do this better.

After experiencing her own personal journey with Pilates changing, her structure and performance through her Martial Arts journey, then personally experiencing health issues and injury which Pilates helped restore her life and rebuild her life.

“I believe Pilates applies to every modality in life, it can reach every age group, it can be applied to basically life, a healthier, stronger and anti-ageing life”.

This was the beginning of a new journey for her. Her unique way of translating complex client strategies into simply succinct visual concept brings a whole new way of teaching Pilates. She does not consider herself as an instructor, rather, she considers herself a person whom imparts the knowledge to enable a client to understand their own body needs. “If I can bring the gift of that to another human being, no matter what age and what state their body presents, then that is the greatest gift I can give in this world”.
