JENNIFER MACKIE (HAGGART)
Owner : Physiotherapist : Pilates Instructor
Hello and welcome to Pilates CHB. I am passionate about movement and helping people become their best selfs. With over 10 years experience as a physiotherapist you are in good hands.
Having graduated from the Robert Gordon University, Scotland, with a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy I worked for a short time for the NHS before moving to NZ. Treating predominatley work and sporting injuries before finding my passion for exercise rehabilitation through the pilates method. I combine my hands on approach with a tailored exercise plan to treat the problem and prevent reoccurence.
With longer appointment times and a focus on client empowerment I aim to provide a gold standard physiotherapy service.
Its not just physiotherapy. My pilates classes teach you how good movement is supposed to feel. A perfect mix of injury prevention, spinal care, strength, toning and fitness.
Fitness Consultant : Pilates : Equestrian Pilates
I am a urban refugee from Auckland, very happy to return to my agricultural roots having grown up on a farm in England, where I spent much of my childhood riding my bike and my pony around the countryside.
I arrived in NZ in 2002. As a newly qualified fitness instructor I loved the lifestyle and committed to stay. Since then I have completed my Personal Training certification through both AIT and Network Fitness, a BBS at Massey (sport management and coaching), plus full Pilates certification with Stott Pilates, gravity training for Pilates and Equestrian Pilates.
I have had the privilege to represent New Zealand n paddling, multi-sport and trail running.
I started practicing Pilates as my body was feeling the strain of my intense physical lifestyle, (sciatic pain) and is the one thing that keeps allowing me to do all the things I love. More recently I have returned to my childhood love of horses and I am delighted to have the opportunity to play Polo, and to educate other riders in how to get more from themselves and their horses by applying the principles of Pilates.
