Rehabilitative and fitness exercise using the Pilates reformer and mat classes, servicing Nambour, Woombye, Palmwoods and surrounding Sunshine Coast.

hi, i'm Libby MASON


I am the owner and founder of Balance Pilates.  I am part of the local community, and it brings me great happiness to offer movement therapy services to the people of Palmwoods and surrounds.

My journey with pilates began over 15 years ago, when as a dental practitioner, I struggled with chronic back pain.  A desire to deepen my understanding and management of my pain led to formal studies in Pilates Movement Therapy, ultimately resulting in a profound improvement in my health and wellbeing.  My personal practice has enabled me to successfully navigate my way through spinal surgery and manage the physical imbalances of scoliosis, as well as the associated emotional and psychological effects of chronic pain. 

I am blessed to now have a lifestyle centred around helping others to find and maintain better health and wellbeing.  My interest in health is holistic, and the aspect of pilates that I love the most is the mind body connection that this exercise modality brings.  Pilates for me is mindfulness meditation.  It has and continues to help improve the quality of my life.

hi, i'm DAN HUNTER

With over 20 years experience, I have a genuine passion and lifelong interest in the alleviation of pain, and helping people return to their best and beyond.  Whether it is everyday aches and pains or recovery from injury, I am skilled in a range of treatments to help you get back on track. 

My passion is the health of the muscular system, and I am currently progressing my qualifications in remedial massage therapy by undertaking an Advanced Diploma in Myotherapy.

Originally from the UK, I am friendly, a great listener and down to earth.  In my free time I like exploring the Sunshine Coast with my fiancé, looking for new rivers and lakes to explore on our stand up paddle boards.  Throw in a peaceful campsite and a fire, and I am in heaven.
