About Julia

Julia Frankish is the owner and Director of Evolved Pilates. She opened the studio in 2014 after having taught for a decade in other studios around Melbourne and working closely with physiotherapists and other health practitioners to achieve the health and wellbeing goals of her clients.

Through her experiences with dance training, Julia was introduced to Pilates as a way to strengthen her body, and help hold it together. This ignited a lifelong love of the method and its intelligent movement principles. She attained her Pilates certification in 2005 and has been teaching ever since!

Julia particularly enjoys educating people that are looking to become Pilates teachers, and providing further education for existing teachers. Examples of recent lectures she has presented include Tendinopathy Management within a Pilates Studio and Dynamic Hip Stability for the APMA and National Pilates Training, Spring Board repertoire for the APMA and Posture Alignment and Safe Stretching for Dance for Southern Federation of Dance.

Julia enjoys working with a diverse range of clients. Her philosophy is that Pilates is for everybody – for all ages and body types, and an excellent tool in both acute injury repair and for increasing strength and injury prevention.  She is particularly interested in hip and pelvis mechanics, low back pain and dance conditioning. Her approach is personable and educational and her sessions are designed to rid you of aches and pains, improve your strength and give you an opportunity to better understand your movement habits and mechanics. Pilates teaches the integration of body and mind, and this, combined with precision and control are consistent themes throughout her classes.

When she is not at the studio either teaching classes or running the business, Julia loves to spend time with her partner Louis and their two children Camille and Emmanuel riding bikes and exploring the Merri Creek. She is also a keen baker and loves cooking and decorating cakes and desserts.
