“Everyday life is serious enough, fitness has to be FUN! When you find something active that you enjoy, the sweating, burning, and breathlessness becomes a positive part of your being. You feel more relaxed, have more confidence and energy. I strive to instill the FUN part of exercise in my students, to help you have a better day, quality of life or simply just a great & fun workout! ” ~ Hanneke
“Pilates with Hanneke started as a little dream to a more balanced life while pursuing a career as a Money Broker in London and New York City. Being on almost every sports team & in every possible ballet class growing up, being chained to a desk was taking a toll on my mind and body’s need to move and shake.
I had discovered Pilates in 2001 at University in South Africa. I was immediately hooked and loved that Pilates worked the same deep intrinsic muscles that ballet did. Over the next eight years I grew addicted to it. I turned to Pilates as a great escape and relaxer for my body and mind whenever hectic London and New York life got a little too much.
In 2009, life finally handed me the opportunity to become a Pilates instructor in Boston. I took it and have never looked back”
