I am Colleen Tomlinson your pilates instructor at The Pilates Difference.
I am the owner and founder of The Pilates Difference in Plettenberg Bay.
My passion for Pilates began over 9 years ago when I experienced the rehabilitative, physical and mental benefits of Pilates while overcoming a severe sporting injury. I have always been passionate about sports and fitness and have represented both Provincially and Nationally at three different sports and worked in fitness training for almost 20 years. I have Degree in Human Movement Science and Anatomy and Physiology, a Diploma in Sports Massage and Injury Management and a Post Graduate Certificate in Higher Education. I have also completed my training with the Stott Pilates® Advanced Certification in Mat, Reformer, Barrels, Stability Chair and Cadillac. I am also a Certified Bootybarre® and Pilates Suspension Method instructor, the only one in South Africa currently.
My goal is to help others discover the incredible benefits of a balanced, strong body. With a passion for movement and health I constantly strive to motivate those around me to live a positive and healthy life, to see the good in everything around us and to enjoy all forms of movement. I like my clients to feel amazing when they leave the studio both mentally and physically.
Live the life you have imagined.
