My Pilates would like to welcome the beautiful Ilse Marvin to our team of instructors.
Movement is in my blood and this is what has lead me to Pilates. I practised athletics and swimming on a national level for ten years and entered the wonderful world of Pilates after finishing my studies and have not looked back.
I turned to Pilates after running to challenge my physical body in a whole new way, I just felt I was no longer mentally stimulated. The Pilates syllabus revealed how misaligned and out of sync my body really was and this journey opened my mind to my body’s awareness.
I started feeling inspired to share and encourage people to look after their physical wellness and as my body become stronger, I discovered that what I was experiencing other people where too. I had no abdominal strength and during my first pregnancy I was in a tremendous amount of pain due to hip misalignment caused from weakness. I embarked on my teacher training course with Theo van Der Riet at BASI Pilates, during this time I realized that Pilates was changing my emotional state of being and bringing out the best in my personality. This was unexpected because I didn’t realize that Pilates could make you happy.
I remind myself constantly that I am so blessed to work in such a great industry, I am driven by the progress of my clients and pushing them to levels where they too feel inspired and that they can achieve all their mind and body goals through consistency.
