About The Studio
The first session, is an introductory private session, in which I will take the time to learn about your fitness condition, lifestyle and goals. This will allow me to build a training program for you and design each lesson so it will help you achieve your goals and perform at a whole new level.
During the lessons you will use Pilates equipment such as Reformer, Stability Chair and Cadillac in a combination with mat work and Pilates prop.
Offering private sessions and small group equipment classes with maximum 3 trainees, makes My Pilates Place the perfect place for experiencing the benefits of the Pilates equipment and personal training.
The Pilates Method
The Pilates method was developed by the physical trainer Joseph Pilates in the 1920’s. Pilates developed hundreds of exercises to be performed on a mat and special spring based equipment that he invented, which provide assistance and resistance.
The principles that the method is based on, are to perform flow of controlled and precise movements, while focusing on breathing, in order to strengthen the core. The purpose is to extend flexibility, improve mobility, and develop longer and stronger muscles.
“The Pilates Method teaches you to be in control of your body and not at its mercy.” – Joseph Pilates
My first encounter with Pilates was after having a career in the hi-tech industry, sitting at the office all day and suffering from back pain.
I discovered Pilates as a way to treat the pain, and fell in love with it. When I saw the benefits, I decided I have to get certified!
Since then I have worked with diverse clientèle, including prenatal, postnatal and clients that suffered from different physical conditions.
As an instructor the focus of my work is building individual training programs according to your physical condition and goals.
