Meet Natalie

Your instructor & founder of Back to Life Studio - Natalie Watson.

Partner with one of the most dedicated Pilates & holistic health coaches in the industry.

Natalie is many things. She’s a small business owner. A mother of two very special boys, and a self-confessed ‘mind, body and soul nerd’.

When Natalie’s two sons were born with a rare metabolic disease, resulting in multiple disabilities, she spent many years working closely with Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists as part of an early childhood intervention team, to help her boys find a better quality of life. Her search for answers led her on a journey of research and self discovery that helped her realise she had a deep passion for helping others heal and transcend their lives.

Practicing Pilates herself since 2012 – following injuries sustained from trail running and running marathons both across Australia and internationally – she wanted to combine her love of helping others with her love of wellness. After experiencing firsthand the benefits of a personalised Pilates program as part of her own self care routine, she knew that helping others through Pilates was what she was put on this earth to do.
And so, Back to Life Studio was born!

Natalie is a certified Allied Health Assistant, Pilates Instructor, Health Coach, and Neurofeedback Provider. With a firm belief in the importance of self care, she has made it her personal mission to help her clients to develop their own wellness practices. Through a combination of her tailored approaches, and years of experience, she encourages the people that she works with to develop effective self-nurturing techniques for mind, brain, body, and soul that are aligned with their own unique goals and values.
