Sharné de Wet
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!
Being physically active from a young age it seemed natural going into a career where physical activity was a part of your everyday life. Having an aunt who is a qualified Pilates instructor inspired me to pursue a career in Pilates. I love working with people. I love discovering how unique each body is. And I love to learn. Doing the BASI Pilates comprehensive course in 2011 and qualifying in 2012 has given me all that and so much more.

Sarah is passionate about pilates and helping people get stronger, more stable, more flexible, and injury free. She has done her full training in both STOTT pilates and BASI. She has also worked as a physiotherapist for the past 18 years and loves identifying the cause of the injury and working out rehabilitation programmes to minimise these injuries. When she is not working, she is busy with her children and loves to run.
I am originally from Pretoria, where I attended Pro Arte School of the Arts majoring in ballet. I then moved to Cape Town and obtained my BMus Degree in Dance at UCT School of Dance in 2004 where I was first introduced to Pilates. After travelling to the USA and UK, I returned to South Africa embarking on a career in advertising. A few years I longed to get back to movement and teaching and thus completed my BASI® Comprehensive Teacher Training in 2014. I am currently the owner of Glow Pilates Studio in Sunset Beach, Cape Town and absolutely love what I do #thepilateslife
