Find the Strength to Find You

My name is Larisa Gerrard and I have been a Pilates instructor for the past 15 years and Barre attack teacher since 2014!

I was trained initially by my beautiful Mentor and teacher Gail Farrugia...bless her soul. She was one of a kind. I was lucky enough to continue her legacy and now still teaching on all her beautiful authentic equipment. I later re trained under Basi Australia by the wonderful, very knowledgeable Ed Botha. It was a magnificent course.

It has always been my passion and dream to own and run a studio and share my love of pilates. Especially growing up dancing and being introduced to it when I was a teen! 

Be Pure Pilates and Barre Studio has been opened for the past 8 years. 

Unfortunately due to covid and moving overseas to the USA for 18 months, it has been shut for the past 2. I am back and am reopening this special space in the same location at Warriewood, just downstairs.

I can't wait to share it with you all and give you the best Barre, Mat, Hiip (High Intensity Interval Pilates), Pilates Suspension Method, Circuit classes, Yin Yoga and Pilates Apparatus classes around.
