Natalie Jacobs

Natalie recently graduated from the University of Sydney with a Masters of Physiotherapy. She is passionate to be working with dancers and performing artists alike, drawing upon her varied knowledge and experience as a contemporary dancer.

Natalie grew up learning all dance styles and completed her Bachelor of Dance at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2011. Whilst pursuing a career in dance, Natalie taught contemporary and classical ballet at local suburban dance schools in Melbourne before relocating to London to explore the contemporary dance scene there.

Following injury, Natalie realised she was passionate about pursuing a career in rehabilitation. She studied Exercise and Sport Science at Deakin University before moving to Sydney to complete her Masters of Physiotherapy. Throughout her studies Natalie has instructed clinical pilates at various physiotherapy clinics and studios and recently worked with the swimming team and hockey players at the NSW Institute of Sport and elite level junior gymnastics teams.

Pilates has always been a part of dance conditioning for Natalie, finding it the perfect adjunct therapy for injury prevention and rehabilitation. Natalie completed her Stott pilates matwork course in 2013 and later completed the Polestar Pilates Comprehensive Rehabilitation course.

Natalie’s treatment style has developed through her studies in physiotherapy, pilates, dance and sport science. As a result, she has worked with a wide variety of individuals including elite level dancers, gymnasts, swimmers, runners, triathletes as well as the weekend recreational warrior, general and elderly populations.

Natalie is passionate about empowering all individuals through education and assisting them to improve their technique and achieve their goals.

In her spare time, Natalie enjoys running, pilates, long walks exploring the outdoors and picnics.
