To bring balance into our daily lives is so difficult.  With all the demands of modern day living and the tempo of our lives today, it is often the last thing on our minds.  I feel that a consistent movement practice keeps us closer to reaching the goal of a balanced life.  It is more than just the physical results that benefit us.  The right training for you will filter through to each aspect of your existence.'

'Coming from a dancing background movement has always been a part of my life.  When I found Pilates everything fell into place and my love of movement was balanced by my love of helping people.   Our bodies were created to move, technology has forced us to be stationary...I feel that bringing movement back into our every day life is essential in creating  a happy and balance lifestyle.'

Pilates & Barre Time Instructor

Sports Massage Therapist

Pilates has changed my life. I went from being a dancer with scoliosis and chronic back pain to a pain free movement teacher. I am passionate about the human body in motion, and love helping my clients achieve their goals. I believe doing some sort of movement that you love everyday, leads to a happier and healthier life. Exercise brings joy to your life, when it is something that you absolutely enjoy and that is why I incorporate Barre Time into my workout routine. Come and enjoy movement with me!

Sarah-Ann Van Der Merwe

Pilates Instructor

Barre Time Instructor

 

Being a dancer, movement has always been a big part of my life. My father always used to say

that I don't just walk to the kitchen, I dance to the kitchen. This led me to explore how the body functions 

and what is needed to move as pain free as possible. Pilates is an integral part of my everyday life. It is rehab, it is strength, it is

flexibility and it is focus. I love helping those around me to move more freely and understand their bodies better.

My motto is movement keeps you moving, so let's move.

Barre Time Instructor

Dance Teacher

The combination of being a dance teacher, personal and Group fitness trainer and Pilates instructor has opened my eyes and mind to helping different bodies with different needs.  I enjoy working with people of all ages.  I have helped many of my clients with numerous injuries and conditions to regain function and confidence in movement again.  I believe everyone has to be looked at individually and movement has to be adapted for each situation.  A moving body is a happy and healthy individual!!

Madelane Joubert

Pilates Instructor 

Coming from a corporate back ground and trained accountant all my life, I battled with chronic back pain and stiffness.

I started doing Pilates for years with trained instructors, and all pains disappeared.  Leaving me with mobility and a healthy mind.

I always had a love for health and fitness, and then decided to become a certified instructor.

This opened my mind to a whole new world of how the body actually works.

I enjoy inspiring other people to work for the progress they want to make.

Lynne Broodryk

Pilates Instructor

Attention-to-detail is Lynné's middle name. It became part of Lynné’s personality from a young age when she spent most of her time as a dancer.  She uses this precision to assess each clients’ postural habits that they have collected over the years.  For Lynné it is like Christmas lights every time she receives a new client, a new challenge.  She has been a BASI Certified comprehensive trainer since 2006 and has very extensive work experience as a Pilates instructor, including managing her own studio and working in a Physiotherapy Practice with Jacqueline Swart.  She has also done a lot of extra training in the field of postural analysis and assessment tools.  Her favourite challenge is to work with clients who have given up the fight after an injury or permanent partial disability.  Combining Pilates, massage therapy, fascia release and Pilates Instructor tutoring is what keeps her so passionate about her job.
