Our Story

Tina & Billy (dog) Milne opened Studio Lifewave in Pialba in early 2022, after many years in their home Mat-work and Massage studio (previously My Me Time Massage & Pilates) in Point Vernon. Tina's love of Pilates had grown and she undertook further study to become a qualified Reformer Pilates Teacher. The opportunity to offer Mat-work and Reformer classes in a larger studio presented itself, and Studio Lifewave was born!

Within 9 months Tina made the decision to focus solely on Pilates and stop offering massages. 

Meet The Team


Billy & Tina

Owner and Pilates Teacher, Tina discovered Pilates whilst offering massage services.


She was frustrated with not being able to find the "right fitness class" in Hervey Bay so trained to become a Pilates Teacher.


Her love of Pilates continues to grow and she is constantly looking for new exercises and ways to mix up the classes for her clients.


Tina's hands on approach is unique. She will make sure you are in the right position and using the right techniques before moving onto another exercise. Watching her beloved clients become stronger and healthier every day is what keeps Tina motivated.


Billy is never far from Tina's side. He can often be found in his bed by the door but will usually give you a quick hello before drifting back off to sleep.

Tina & the Studio Lifewave Team are knowledgeable & friendly. They make me feel at ease & welcome. Tina's instruction is easily understood and she takes the time to correct you kindly as needed, to ensure that you get the best out of your workout. As a client of 4 years, I highly recommend Studio Lifewave for mat & reformer Pilates and massage.

Best pilates studio I've been to! Love the small classes, as you get more one on one. Tina is a wonderful trainer who constantly makes sure your form is on point and that your abs are always engaged! Absolutely love going there, highly recommend!

I've tried many forms of exercise & they always end up leaving me mentally fatigued so I joined up for pilates reformer classes & quickly ended up doing 5 classes a week. The ab definition after my first set of 13 week membership was amazing & not once did I feel mentally exhausted. Highly recommend, such a great full body workout.
