I started out my education and career as a graphic designer, completing a Baccalaureus Technologiae: Graphic Design with Tshwane University of Technology in 2005. However, after working in the design industry for over five years, I felt something was missing. I have always enjoyed Pilates as a student, so I decided to take the leap and make it my full time profession. I completed the Mat course at BASI (Body Arts and Science International) in 2010, and went on to complete the Comprehensive course in 2011. My love for the outdoors and drive to keep active, developed into a passion for challenging the body – pushing it to new limits and discovering new abilities. As a Pilates instructor for many years I have had a variety of clients from athletes to pregnant women as well as clients needing to retrain their muscles from past injuries to anyone wanting to tone and improve their body shape.
I have been teaching Pilates since my second year as a student. Which is many moons ago! For me the highlight of Pilates is the versatility of it. The more you know, the more you can do and the better the results you see. I am passionate about people and enjoy working with instructors and clients alike. The more the merrier!
I completed my BASI Comprehensive Teacher Training Diploma in 2012, which includes mat and professional equipment. I have spent the last 7 years running a vibrant studio in the bustling suburb of Norwood. This is where I dedicated all my working hours, gaining valuable experience in Pre- and Post Natal Pilates. I kept learning and growing as I worked with injuries and rehabilitation, hypermobility, chronic pain, and most importantly- building core strength which has proven to be invaluable to each and every client. I moved to The Circle Pilates Studio in April of this year, and I love the change of pace and the quiet surroundings. I am a dedicated and passionate instructor, and spend all my time and energy into making each session enjoyable and rewarding. On the weekends you can find me teaching at Flex pilates in Sandton!

At the end of my high school career, with twelve years of dance training behind me, I was introduced to the wonders of Pilates. During my "gap year", I completed the MTTC with Ed Botha at EdB Pilates in Cape Town, started my own studio called Balance Pilates, while also preparing for my final dance examinations. These included Advanced 1 Cecchetti Ballet, Advanced AIDT Modern and Gold Higher AIDT Tap Dancing. By then, I had set aside the thought of studying with my peers and enrolled at Broadway Dance Center, in New York City, for their Professional Semester Dance Program. Since I had to leave my studio behind, I convinced my mom, Robin de Wet, to also do the MTTC and keep it running while I was away. Now the Pilates-bug has bitten her too. I absolutely thrive on movement and through the years have discovered the importance of moving safely, recruiting the correct muscles. Pilates does just that. It is my magic formula, and I want to share it with the world. Why waste time doing anything else? FUN FACT: I have a special place in my heart for elderly people. Half of my current clients consist of them and together we have seen heart warming results!
