No matter where you are in the world, the Pilates principles remain the
same. Lizél moved to Ohio from South Africa and will be adding some
Johannesburg flavor to her classes.
One of her favorite Joseph Pilates quotes is: “Breathing is the first act of life
and the last. Our very life depends on it.” In a busy world many people
forget to stop, appreciate their many blessings and breathe. Pilates provides
you with the opportunity to focus on your breathing and the manner in
which you breathe to work through an exercise.
We are all unique and Pilates is so diverse that the exercises can be modified
to accommodate a beginner right through to a professional athlete.
Lizél was an Optometrist for 13 years and Pilates provided her with an
opportunity to increase her knowledge about the intricately designed
human body. She completed her comprehensive Pilates course in South
Africa and also has a BSC in Biochemistry and Psychology from the University
