You can be confident in knowing that DC Movement Lab is the best place to train as this studio trains your instructors!  We practice proven Pilates techniques to assist with injury rehabilitation, sports performance and general well-being. Why not start your journey with us today!

Any new activity can be intimidating, but our friendly team will make sure that your  journey is fun and rewarding! The best way to start is by booking your Two Private Intro Sessions. During these two sessions we asses your body’s strength and weakness’, explain some principles and biomechanics that will help you perform to your best and achieve the right result.  The next step is to decide which classes will best suit your needs or you may like to continue with private or semi private sessions.

Her teaching methodology includes a unique and profound experience about levels of body awareness. She runs teacher training courses and daily pilates classes from the studio she co-founded with her husband on the Gold Coast.


Candice has grown up in an active and healthy lifestyle family; dancing, swimming and playing hockey was a big part of her life.  Since leaving school Candice has completed her Mat and Reformer Training in STOTT PILATES® and has been teaching part time at DC Movement Lab.

Candice is studying Business and Commerce at Griffith University, making her a great asset to DC Movement Lab not just in teaching pilates but also for her analytical brain helping the team move forward and upward.
