She has been teaching since 2004 and continues to learn every day. "I don't think we are ever too old or too experienced to learn new things." As an ex-professional dancer who suffered a permanent back injury, Ianthe's love for movement is what draws her to the detailed eye with which she approaches her Pilates sessions. Her passion for working with and teaching the Pilates method to persons of all levels of capability provides a highly accessible and enjoyable way of training for all of her clients.

I started my career in the financial field, working for British–Swiss multinational commodity trading and mining company, after 20 years I decided to move out of the corporate world’s fast lane into a lane where I can focus on sharing my knowledge and love for being healthy happy and free and to pursue my passion in health and fitness. My life has always included sport on all levels including Pilates and I’m passionate about a holistic approach to health, with that in mind I did a 360˚career change and started studying Holistic Nutrition. I move to a small town renowned as a watersport paradise in the Eastern Cape. I completed my BASI MAT Instructors course April 2019. My Holistic approach to life allows me to practice and teach Pilates, an incredible gift an honor to help people grow on a mind body spirit level. “sometimes you need to step off the worn path, lay down with your eyes up to the blue sky, interlock your fingers behind your head and let the grass grow up around you.” Leo Christopher
