Anne Corbett has a Bachelor of Education, major in Physical Education & Health and Diploma in Teaching. She has always been passionate about helping children and adults live an active, healthy and fulfilling life.
Anne’s experience spans from teaching Physical Education and Health in the NZ and UK education system from Primary through to University level and also coaching top college sport. Currently, she is the owner of CoreBalance Pilates & Breathing Studio.
A keen distance runner, skier and lover of the outdoors, Pilates has ensured she can keep doing all that she enjoys. She believes functional breathing influences our physical and mental strength and can be instrumental to improving not only sport performance but how we as humans function day to day.
In this fast-paced world, Anne has delved into mindfulness meditation and other relaxation techniques and has incorporated these into her teaching. For her personally, functional breathing has made a profound difference to her mental and emotional wellbeing & the science backs this up. Anne is passionate about sharing her knowledge with both children and adults to help build resilience; to cope in challenging times, when stress, anxiety, panic or depression may take over. Humans are capable of so much and breathing exercises taught well can help keep us in the present moment, naturally improving our attention span and tapping into our brain’s true potential for school, work or in sport.
Having battled with gut inflammation for many years, Anne also believes functional breathing can play an important part in reducing inflammation and improving our digestion. As she has found, internal discomfort may not just be food related.
It’s making a decision to go for it and find out for yourself. When clients start a guided and supported journey to breathe better they truly start to live & feel better.
Anne offers, private and small group sessions online and in the CoreBalance studio, as well as programmes for schools, sports clubs and businesses.
