Nikar Dua


Nikar embarked on the journey to become an Exercise Physiologist because of my unwavering passion for empowering individuals to experience a profound improvement in both their physical and mental well-being. Witnessing the remarkable capacity of exercise to reshape lives and enhance overall health and happiness was the driving force behind my choice to pursue this rewarding career.

When it comes to exercise, my personal favourite is Pilates. The combination of strength, flexibility, and mind-body connection in Pilates aligns perfectly with my holistic approach to health and fitness. I also have a strong affinity for functional training, as it offers numerous benefits and makes me feel better not just physically but also mentally.

Growing up surrounded by the joyful presence of seven wonderful dogs, I’ve carried the warmth of those memories with me to Australia. Despite the distance, my love for larger dog breeds remains close to my heart. Hailing from a food-loving Punjabi family, I find immense delight in the perfect harmony of spicy and sweet flavors. Cooking, hosting dinners, and dance bring immense joy to my life. In addition, spending time with my neighbor’s dogs and any canine companions around me brings happiness, even though I can’t currently have pets. My passion for dogs and the culinary arts continues to fill my days with warmth and vibrancy.”

I have a particular focus on several areas. These include oncology, occupational rehabilitation, paediatrics, and the management of chronic diseases. Each of these specialties presents unique challenges and opportunities for me to make a meaningful impact.

The insightful words of Edward Stanley resonate with timeless wisdom: ‘Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.’ It emphasizes the importance of making time for exercise as a proactive measure to avoid future illnesses. Essentially, it underscores the connection between prioritizing health today and enjoying a healthier future.”
