Tamika, the daughter of Cynthia Lochard, has been involved in the method from a very early age. As a high-level athlete in her teenage years, Tamika was involved in a variety of sports including touch football, netball, water polo and competitive swimming before a sporting injury forced her to retire, and in the process, gravitated her towards a career in Pilates.
Given her experience, while having Cynthia as her mentor and trainer, Tamika excelled in the program, moving to New York to become one of the youngest certified instructors in the true Pilates method when Sari Meija-Santo certified her in 2009. Since her certification, Tamika has spent the past few year mastering her craft overseas in New Orleans and New York, while featuring as a guest teacher in New Zealand and Russia.
In addition to her Pilates certification, Tamika also completed a Certificate 3 in Fitness at the Australian Fitness Institute. Tamika has since been promoted to a Level 4 Instructor trainer of the Romana’s Pilates Training Program.
