HELEN ILICH

movement is a life adventure
movement background ​​

My foundation is gymnastics, in which I was immersed for many years, as a gymnast
and accredited Artistic Gymnastics coach in Sydney, Australia. I consider myself fortunate to
have been exposed to such an amazing discipline early in life, which truly created a trajectory for
my future.  As a gymnast, my particular forte and passion was tumbling. My coaching
extended to schools and sporting organisations where I conducted children’s and 
adults recreational classes, and competitive squad training in Artistic Gymnastics. This
experience is reflected in all aspects of my subsequent pursuits, and continues to be
an inspiration for physical autonomy and movement for life.

I have also dabbled in dance, yoga, and flying trapeze. I am inspired by movement that
exhibits remarkable skill and physical freedom.
  
Fitness, strength, flexibility and movement are fundamental to my current vocation. I
discovered the brilliant Stretch Therapy™ flexibility training method in 2014, and gained
Stretch Teacher qualifications to conduct classes using this effective system. A new
learning curve followed, which has led me to a broader career in fitness, which is also merged with  
gymnastics tumbling. I regard myself as a facilitator of change in the physical wellbeing of others,
with the view that there is always more to discover, learn and share.

I am an  Animal Flow® practitioner and certified Animal Flow® instructor.

My movement adventure is always evolving. There are more exciting twists and turns in the works.
