I am Fiona your pilates instructor at The Pilates Difference.
I embarked on my Pilates journey 8years ago as a client, with very few expectations. At that point I was a spinner and cardio fanatic and I honestly thought Pilates would be too slow for me. How wrong I was!
I fell in love with the Pilates method straight away, and within 2 years I decided to take the plunge and qualify as an instructor myself. The course was a revelation. I never thought I would love studying the human body and exercise so much. I was on a permanent learning high. Studying Pilates gave me such insight into the thought processes behind each exercise, why you executed a movement in a specific way, what the outcome would be, it really deepened and cemented my love for Pilates. I then qualified through STOTT Pilates® as a Mat Instructor and for the past 6 years I’ve been teaching group mat classes and private clients at a variety of private studios in Johannesburg. I love developing relationships with my clients, they trust me with their bodies and I work very hard to earn and keep that trust.
Clients who are aware of their bodies and want to push and better themselves with exercise energise me. It’s wonderful instructing and teaching clients who are keen to try new things and who love a challenge, in fact it’s one of the reasons why I love to teach!
We don’t meet people by accident, They are meant to cross our path for a reason
