Take a deep long slow breath in, through your nose,imagine blowing up a balloon at the base of your spine. ? Pause for a moment and feel yourself in the present moment.
Exhale….. Slowly breathing out through your mouth say “ahhhhhhhh” as though you are cleaning your crystal glasses.
I would like to welcome Yolandi Moreira (Olckers), with open arms as she joins our Pilates studio as our ballet teacher. It is an honour and a privilege to have her at our studio. I have known and admired Yolande for years, she has taken my breath away countless times, on stage as a performer and am so happy that we are able to share her with you.
Have a lovely read below to familiarize yourself with our newest addition: Yolande Moreira (Olkers)
I started ballet at the tender age of four and have never looked back. The art of Dance has always been my life. I completed my high school in Toronto Canada through a scholarship, which was awarded at an international ballet competition. I returned to South Africa to continue dancing and start my career as a professional dancer in 2000; working for various companies dancing both classical ballet and contemporary dance. During this time I attained my qualifications as a ballet teacher in the Cecchetti method and started working with private clients, on fitness and toning. In 2011 I became a full time dance teacher.
I am very fortunate to have had a baby last year and have since gotten back into shape through ballet, stretching and body conditioning. I have definitely proven to myself and others that exercise creates the balance and happiness needed to be a super mom and super woman. I have now joined with My Pilates to share my knowledge of fitness and well-being so that we can create happiness through beautiful ballet.
Please join me in my ballet fit classes that are aimed for all levels of participants. The classes are a combination of basic ballet moves with toning and conditioning exercises. I look forward to guiding you in your fitness journey.
