Our Instructors

Michelle, known as Shelby.

Started of dancing on my dad’s feet at their studio when I was a tiny little girl, became an Australian ballroom dancing champion by time I was 10 years old.

From there I always had a love of fitness and was entered into the Hindmarsh stadium hall of fame, as a defender for the under 14’s Aldinga beach soccer club women’s team. Becoming the inaugural under 14 cup winners.

I experimented with calisthenics, tennis and running, but eventually found my passion in group fitness.

I started off under the wing of Linda Domas as a trainee body combat instructor. After becoming certified, I then also took up pole fitness. I then headed for teaching stretch and relaxation classes and body pump. I am currently teaching all of these classes on a weekly basis and could not love my job and passion for the people that I meet any more than I do. This has by far been the best journey of my life.

I began pole dancing 2 years ago for fitness and a bit of fun. I became instantly addicted after my very first lesson. It was love at first spin! I love all aspects of pole dancing, including the grace, strength, flexibility and the confidence gained along the way. I love pushing myself to my limits week by week and seeing what new and challenging moves I can try.

I’ve become passionate about sharing my love for pole with my students at Core Principles SA. There’s nothing quite like watching a student nail their nemesis trick and through it gaining confidence, motivation, a sense of achievement or even happiness.

Joy began pole dancing in 2012 and has been coaching for the last two years. Prior to that she was a belly dancer, which provided a good segue into pole dancing. She loves the mental and physical challenge of pole and finds it to be one of the most empowering and rewarding activities she has ever tried.

As a coach she is very patient, encouraging and supportive, which comes from her six years of coaching children’s sport. She is also extremely determined and if there’s one thing you can be sure of, Joy will never give up on you! There’s nothing she loves more than seeing students nail new moves and achieve their goals.

My love of exercise goes hand in hand with my love of science, human biology in particular. I’m just a closet geek really and love nothing more than to study for fun! Interests I have include psychology and neuroscience.

The complexity of the human body and mind astound me, as does what we are capable of doing when we apply mind to matter and believe in ourselves. The most satisfaction for me, working in the fitness industry, is to see people brought to life as they discover their passion for movement, to watch them succeed, amazing themselves at their own capabilities.

I also have a creative side and love interior design and when I have time I like to sketch, and particularly enjoy drawing the human body. No surprises there. The creative part of me gets heaps of satisfaction from my work at the studio as each week I get the freedom to plan and deliver such a variety of classes.

I moved to Australia with my family 4 years ago and couldn’t be happier. I think a big upheaval (such as moving to the other side of the world) builds resilience and the knowledge that you can create anything, anywhere. I believe that it’s never too late and you’re never too old to do something different, reinvent yourself, be who you want to be and achieve what you want to achieve!

When I’m reading for pleasure I love nothing better than crime novels and I think another job I would have loved is forensic scientist! My absolute favourite TV series to date has to be Dexter.
I love a laugh and like to think I don’t take myself too seriously as some of you may attest to if you witnessed my C3PO costume in the Star Wars mash up!! Working at Core Principles studio is such as pleasure. I couldn’t ask for better colleagues or clients so thank you all!
