Our Team

Jeni Watson

Owner & CZO (Chief Zen Officer)

After leaping out of a successful corporate career, for Jen, coming back to the Barre in her 40's was like coming home. Starting ballet classes at age 5, Barre has been a combination of all of her deepest loves - yoga, pilates, and dance.

After spending the past few years immersed in study, Jen is a RYT ( Registered Yoga Teacher) 500hrs, Diploma in Clinical Pilates & Cert 4 in Pilates, a new chapter was born with Roaming Zen in 2016 - leading yoga and wine events throughout the stunning vineyards of Adelaide Hills and beyond.

After opening her own bricks 'n mortar studio in 2017 which offers regular classes, workshops, and more, Jen has now lined up inspiring global retreats for all movement and Barre lovers alike!

Toni Cartwright

Pilates - Clinical, Mat & Reformer, Barre & TRX

Toni has been a Pilates devotee and advocate since July 2008 when her husband sustained a serious lower back injury. While participating alongside her husband in his rehabilitation sessions, she noticed a positive change in her own mind and body.
 
In July 2011, Toni sustained her own life changing injury and her commitment to Pilates assisted in her recovery and her injury’s ongoing maintenance.
 
Deciding to become an instructor in 2013, Toni has since completed Polestar Pilates internationally accredited matwork and studio qualifications. She left her corporate career in October 2014 to fully commit herself to Pilates.
 
Providing enjoyable and effective Pilates sessions, Toni focuses on controlled movements, proper alignment and correct technique ensuring her clients get the most out of their class.
 
She is passionate about how Pilates provides a mind-body connection and how it can have a positive effect for every person, every day, both inside and outside the studio.

Anna Reudiger

Barre, Pilates & TRX

Anna is a qualified Occupational Therapist and an experienced Barre instructor. What she loves most about Barre is that it is a safe workout that targets all muscle groups to strengthen and tone the whole body evenly, and can be modified to suit any age, body type, or fitness level.

Anna has always had a love for movement and music. From a very young age Anna would borrow ballet books from the library, and grew up playing netball, tennis, learning piano and singing, and has done ballet, hip-hop, jazz dance and musical theatre. With a love for music and movement, the combination of these two elements pulls at Anna's heartstrings and makes RZ Barre the perfect workout.

Anna is passionate about enabling and empowering people to live their best lives, and believes that health and fitness are very important elements to this, as well as building relationships and community. Outside of the studio, Anna finds her Zen through music, spending time with family and friends, and enjoying the gorgeous outdoors.

Bec Fletcher

Pilates - Clinical, Mat & Barre & TRX

Bec began her journey into the health, fitness and well-being industry in her early 20’s.
 
Fast forward 8 years and Bec has been teaching Pilates, Yoga & Barre Fitness for 7 years and owned her own Pilates/Yoga Studio, @shamatapilates, for 3 years.

Bec enjoys the teaching and sharing her love of movement especially in Pilates & Movement. She has just completed a Diploma in Remedial Massage. With fresh new physical therapy skills Bec hopes to power on forward with my work within the health, fitness and well-being industry.

What to expect in a class with Bec?

In the words of Bec!
ABS! Love, love, LOVE abs. It's not a good workout for me unless I get a good ab burn so I give it to my client's too. It's just so satisfying and so good for you. I love hearing client's groan and see their bodies shake and faces wince as we ramp up the intensity. It's a love/hate feeling for the client's, but usually they thank me later. ;)

Eliza Payze

Pilates, Barre & Dance

Eliza’s love for dance and performing began at the age of 4, training intensely in classical ballet, contemporary, and jazz. In 2015, after completing her schooling, Eliza was offered positions at the Western Australian Performing Arts Academy (WAPAA) and The New Zealand School of Dance, but decided to stay in Adelaide to study Physiotherapy as Flinders University whilst continuing her dance training at Australian Dance Theatre.

Taking up pilates is the perfect combination for Eliza to blend her extensive knowledge on both dance and physiotherapy. This led her to complete her Certificate IV in Clinical Pilates Mat with Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute. She is so excited to be apart of Roaming Zen and cannot wait to share her knowledge with the community!

FAVOURITE BARRE MOVE & WHY?

I love love love Barre Cardio – as someone who hates things like running I love that I can get a cardio fix in a much more fun way

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT TEACHING?

When I partake in a class myself I love the sense of accomplishment you feel, therefore, I sincerely appreciate being able to share in that feeling with the people who attend my class

Jess Li

Pilates

Jess has been doing various classes at Roaming Zen since its beginning and became dedicated to Pilates because it not allowed her to become more in tune with her body but tone her body without sweating it out at a gym.

Her journey to becoming a pilates instructor started when Chief Zen Officer Jen asked her if she ever thought about teaching pilates. After some encouragement from Jen and friends, she made the commitment and is now qualified instructor through Studio Pilates.

She is very excited and thrilled to join the Roaming Zen family.

Her teaching style: Making the muscles ‘sing” and have laughs at the same time.

Lucy Silvy

PT/ Fitness & TRX

As a young mum of three kids under 5, Lucy found herself like many other mothers- tired, emotional, a little over weight, low in energy and a little lost in which direction her life was going. A kick start into a healthy active lifestyle including fitness, nutrition and mindset practice, helped her find herself in the best shape of her life, physically and mentally.

She had discovered a passion for helping other men and women to feel the same. Working as a health coach at a local nutrition centre, then going on to complete Cert 3 and 4 in fitness and TRX instructor training.

Lucy found Roaming Zen, when she needed to find her "happy place" & has fallen in love with the studio & the community.

Lucy is enthusiastic, loud and excited and her goal is for everyone to leave her class feeling better than when they arrived.

Vienna The b. class®

The b. class®. Leader

Vienna had been doing The b. class® in Canada with its creator Tara Newberring for 3 years. It was love at the first song. She always remembers her first The b. class® feeling free, enlightened, & knew that her life had changed in that very first moment.

Fast forward a few years & Jen our CZO had the pleasure of meeting Vienna, Vienna leading the first class & Jen fell in love and just knew that The b. class® was exactly what the RZ community would fall in love with.

There's something incredible special about Vienna & The b. class® and we are incredibly blessed to have her on our team.
