Meet Your Course Creators



My name's Alicia, and with my husband Dr Daniel Harvie, we've created Aleenta Training to train people just like you. Dan and I are passionate about inspiring and developing the next generation of Instructors with Courses we wished were available when we started out.

Dan adds his clincian's eye to our Courses as a Lecturer & Researcher, a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist and published author. And I add my copious amounts of qualifications in movement, combined with 15 years experience as a Professional Contemporary dancer, Pilates and Barre Instructor and Studio owner.

I absolutely love sharing my love of movement and teaching you to become movement experts yourself.

As fitness professionals we are at the forefront of keeping people moving in a safe and effective way.

My aim is to inspire you to change people's lives and become a teacher, a coach, an educator, a champion, a culture and community maker.

I promise you there's nothing more rewarding.

Student ❤️ Notes


Ellie Parnell

“The Course was very thorough and I particularly enjoyed the anatomy and biomechanics sections. Even though I know a lot about this already, I loved learning how to apply it to the different barre exercises. I’m also used to working in a rehab setting so I loved learning how teach at a faster pace which is what I need to do get people the results with barre. This course is perfect for anyone with an interest in dance or human movement."


Natalie Sawyer

Natalie undertook Aleenta Barre Training and loved it so much joined us again for Mat Pilates Training.

“After undertaking the Barre Course, I immediately implemented Barre into our Dance Studio which created another class style for our community to attend. There was also a huge benefit to my own personal fitness because it’s a style similar to dance which I personally thoroughly enjoy. Adding the Pilates concepts to the dance classes will also help the dance students to refine their movements and also add another dimension to our barre classes."

Ricky Goss, Barre and Pilates Instructor



"I took the leap to become an Instructor as I wanted to learn more about my body as I have some injuries. I wanted to be able to share this knowledge with others and help them to understand their bodies more roo. I also want to help share these forms of exercise that others may not know could be so rewarding.

I chose Aleenta Training because I was attending their classes and I loved the friendly culture. They put so much care and attention into every client in their Studios! I learnt a lot of body awareness during my training and I love the amount of time we spent ensuring we understand how it feels on our body. I feel like I know myself so much better. I learnt about my strengths and weaknesses and how I can use this knowledge to become a better Instructor. The Course felt so much more of a wholistic training course.

Get The Facts


Do I need to be a fitness instructor to do your Courses?

No, you don't need to be a fitness instructor or in the health and fitness field to do our Courses. You simply need a passion for fitness and helping others to achieve their health and fitness goals. We always highly recommend that as part of your journey to becoming a barre and/or Pilates instructor that you also complete a Certificate 3 in Group Fitness. We'll chat more with you about this during the Course.

Help! I don't know whether to do barre or Pilates?

We know it's a tough decision. Pilates is a great one to kick off with because it provides you with the foundations of Pilates. And Pilates is a key element of teaching barre which is a fusion of ballet technique and exercises with Pilates. Having the foundational Pilates knowledge is a great platform to then learn barre. However, everyone's circumstances are different and we encourage you to reach out to and we can chat further about your specific situation.

Can I receive recognition of prior learning ...

Yes! if you are a clinician and are well versed in anatomy and biomechanics, we recommend our clinician stream where we focus on teaching you to use your skillset and apply Pilates and/or barre to the clinical setting. All other requests for RPL will be taken on a case-by-case basis.

Are your Courses Certified?

Yes, our Courses are Certified by AusActive and if you an existing fitness professional you will earn 15CEC points.

Do I have to pay upfront?

You have 2 options to pay for your course! You can either pay upfront or we have a Payment Instalment plan available. All you need to do is pay via the deposit option and we will be in contact to set up a weekly direct debit.

Please be aware that you will not officially graduate your course until all instalments have been paid.

If you complete early and still have remaining payments you have the option to completely pay off your course early and receive your course completion certificate.
