The Eloquent Body

The Eloquent Body
Fiona Malone is a fully qualified and experienced Pilates Instructor with extensive international dance, movement, choreographic, pilates and teaching experience. Her life experiences from a high end athletic dancer to injury, recovery, retraining, then training actors, and becoming a qualified Pilates instructor have culminated in her developing a teaching methodology designed to support her philosophy that the body can be as ‘Eloquent’ as verbal communication. Her movement training enables both non-performers and performers to embrace and embody with confidence an ‘Eloquent Body’.


What Pilates and movement training can do for you!

Over the years Pilates has proven to be a superior exercise system that allows each and every one of us to explore the benefits of increased flexibility, strength and core. It is excellent for releasing tension and stress from the body as well as rebalancing muscles to prevent pain and injury. Over time, you gain knowledge and awareness of your body’s capabilities, developing a mindful, educated approach to exercise, creating balance and freedom of movement for your body. Pilates helps to achieve a stable and grounded base from which your body can move freely.

Benefits include:

  • Reducing tension and stress
  • Development of mind, breathe, body connections
  • Retraining physical patterns
  • Improving flexibility
  • Increasing overall strength and tone
  • Correcting posture and alignment
  • Improving flexibility
  • Relieving muscular and joint discomfort
  • Creating balance to prevent injury
  • Increasing body awareness and correction
  • Injury prevention and recovery
  • Dance and sport specific training
  • Pre and post natal health
  • General strength training
Pilates will allow you to take charge of your body and posture, minimising the impact it has on your daily movements, whether at work, during exercise or just relaxing.

About Me – Fiona Malone

Fiona MalonePilates & Movement
Dip Prof Pilates Instruction (Polestar), Pilates Alliance Australia Member, Post Grad Dip Movement Studies (NIDA), BA Dance/Drama (QUT), Cert IV Training & Assessment, ARAD :: Alexandria

Before embracing  Pilates and Creative Movement Training, I had an extensive international career as a professional dancer, and  became an award-winning Choreographer. As an elite dancer I experienced injuries and surgery that required fast and efficient rehabilitation to get me back on my feet in time for the next tour. Pilates enabled the rehabilitation of my injuries while maintaining and strengthening the whole body. I credit Pilates ( and determination:)  for my long and international career. At 25 I experienced an injury that required me to learn to walk again, surgeons suggesting I would end up in a wheel chair. Pilates enabled me to rehabilitate, retrain my physical and mental patterns and go on to dance successfully for another 10 years!!

Re-training my body and mind to walk and then dance again after surgeries was an amazing journey. I am passionate about the ability the brain and body has to adapt and learn. Through Pilates, Movement Training and Dance, my Pilates Studio provides me with the opportunity to witness change in people daily… personal changes and achievements that inspire! This is what drives my passion to teach!!
