Jordanna Smith: Owner/Manager
Jordanna has extensive dancing experience, including ballet, contemporary dance, modern jazz, hip hop, and tap. After completing high school Jordanna continued her dance studies by completing an Associate Degree in Dance at the Queensland University of Technology.
Jordanna has combined her dancing expertise with the Pilates Method since 2002 when she started her Pilates career with the Pilates Institute of Australasia (PIA). In 2008 Jordanna completed her full Comprehensive Training Course with Body Arts and Science (BASI). Jordanna has committed herself to the BASI system, with both interstate and international BASI advanced education.
Jordanna opened her studio, previously known as Pilates with Jordanna, in October 2005 and it has grown into one of the most popular and well sought after Pilates studios in Brisbane. Pilates Studio 64 is the Brisbane's BASI host studio for Pilates teacher training and continuing education. Jordanna is proud to represent BASI Pilates in Australia and was delighted to join the BASI Teaching Faculty in 2012.
In April 2012 Jordanna completed her Booty Barre certification with founder Tracey Mallett. Barre classes are so popular throughout America, making it an easy decision to add this program to her studios and for her clientele. In 2013 Jordanna will represent the Australian Booty Barre teacher training.
Jordanna thoroughly enjoys seeing her clients progress from their initial beginners or rehabilitation program to moving freely with functional movement patterns and quality of life. Clients are referred to Jordanna for numerous reasons but continue their Pilates sessions as a way of life.

Adriana started at Pilates Studio 64 in 2007 as part of a rehabilitation program for her lower back and neck injuries. Once the management of the injuries was under control and Adriana could start playing sport again, she wanted to do cardio that involved Pilates and also help other people. The Booty Barre program from America, founded by Tracey Mallet, had been mentioned through the studio and Adriana instantly fell in love with the routines and did an Instructor class as soon as she could. With a dancing background, the combination of pilates, dance and yoga was a perfect balance for Adriana. Adriana continues to do Booty Barre to assist students with their fitness and enjoys seeing their satisfaction at their great results.
