Tiffany – Body Art Science International (BASI) trained Pilates Instructor.

I first saw Pilates on a television programme in 2004. I fell in love with the discipline. Living in a small town, Pilates classes were a 2hr drive away, so I shelved my dreams of ever formally attending a session. But a life-changing event led me to relocate to Cape Town and my journey started.

A chance encounter then led me to discover that my dreams could be realized and that I had indeed developed a passion for Pilates. I then trained with BASI. I am a mother of one to a beautiful  8 year old little girl,  I am an Ariel Silkest and performed at the Showcase with The Silk Workshop.

Marike –  Pilates Instructor.

I started working at KWV in Paarl in 2014 and had my first Pilates class at Pilates for Life studio.  I fell in love with this form of movement and decided to stay.

After a year of training, I enrolled in the Healthy Living Education Motor function and Movement Pattern Course presented by Colette de Vries and Gerda Miller.  This course stretched over a one year period where we dedicated one weekend a month in order to complete all the modules of this course.  

A whole new world opened for me during this time and I couldn’t have asked for a better Mentor to teach and help me understand the important principles of Pilates.  I extended this course by attending a Pregnancy workshop and Reformer course in 2016.  

Rochelle – Prime Movement qualified Pilates Instructor, Rochelle started her Pilates journey 5 years ago and hasn’t looked back since.

“Ek het besef dat ek uiteindelik my “sport” ontdek het, maar dit is soveel meer as net dit.  Dit is MY tyd… Mind, Body & Soul.  Pilates het ‘n groot en belangrike deel van my lewe geraak.  Tans is ek in opleiding en gee klas by Love Pilates Movement Studio.  Ek geniet elke oomblik.  Ek staan baie keer nog in bewondering en raak opgewonde oor hoe ‘n liggaam voor my oë kan verander deur op ‘n gereelde bassis Pilates te doen.  Maak nie saak hoe klein dit wel soms vir die kliënt mag voel nie.  Ja, ons amal se liggame gaan deur “ Ups & Downs “.  Myself en al die ander instruktrieses inkluis.  Dit is om dit raak te sien en te erken en om te luister na jou liggaam wat die heel belangrikste is.  Ons amal is op dieselfde manier verskillend, as jy verstaan wat ek bedoel…Leer om dit te omhels!”


Fran – 200hr Yoga Teacher

My yoga journey started 5 years ago.. I fell in love with the practice immediately. I found it to be a powerful tool in healing diseases. Being a breast cancer survivor, and thriver, I naturally felt that I wanted to share the power of yoga with the world … I took my practice a step further and signed up for my first teachers training recently completing 200 hours. My disease and yoga taught me self love, gratitude and kindness. I am finally living my authentic self at age 48.  Being a mother of a beautiful young girl I want to share the Love with her and others for many more years to come.
