"If it is to be, it’s up to me."

Former Moulin Rouge and Lido dancer, author of the bestselling book ‘Memoirs of a Showgirl’ and mother of two, Shay Stafford is the owner and lead instructor of XTEND Barre Stones Corner. Shay has chalked up 10 years as an XTEND Barre, mat, and reformer Pilates instructor. As well as the day-to-day running of her studio, Shay is an XTEND Barre teacher-trainer and has proudly trained and mentored hundreds of Australia’s best barre instructors.

“Teaching is my passion,” says Shay. “Nothing gives me greater satisfaction than seeing how a program of structured exercise, in a nurturing community of like-minded people – can transform a life.”
