Lume, Meet the Team

Simone Ivkovic

Senior Pilates Clinician
Director

My mission with Lume was to build a down-to-earth and conscious community of movers and thinkers. I approach exercise from a place of engagement, relevance and enjoyment –  encouraging people to stay active and recover from injury through movement.

 

Before LUME, I worked as a professional dancer. I danced with the South Australian Youth Ballet and received a scholarship to train professionally in ballet and contemporary dance at Queensland University. I went on to work as a contemporary dancer in Montreal and the UK, returning to Australia to complete a Postgraduate Diploma in Choreography at Melbourne University’s, Victorian College of the Arts.

 

Movement is much more than my profession; it is a passion that has become deeply embedded in my life. I have now completed advanced teacher training in clinical Pilates, yoga and dance teaching. To further advance my knowledge of the human body, I am currently studying Physiotherapy at UniSA, with the intent to continue helping people recover from injury through movement. My experience working in a variety of clinical and non-clinical settings has allowed me to appreciate how injury, disease, environment and psychosocial factors can influence overall health and wellbeing.

Pilates Teacher.

Nothing is more rewarding than helping my clients find a new experience of their bodies through movement. I have been teaching Pilates since 2016 in a variety of settings and have worked with a wide range of people of different ages, backgrounds, abilities and goals. Pilates is a fantastic way to build the foundations of a body that moves well, feels good and is able to keep up with the demands of life – whatever they may be for the individual.

 

In addition to Pilates I am an Accredited Exercise Physiologist, and am currently undertaking research Honours in Pain Science. I consult at Lume and the University of South Australia, working with people with various health conditions and from different walks of life.

 

Seeing the people I work with engage with exercise and the positive effect this has on their health and quality of life never fails to inspire me.
