My love for movement and flow first appeared at the tender age of 4 as an eager ballet dancer and I later started teaching ballet at the age of 17. My life unfolded around me and at the time, as a mother I chose to give up teaching to focus on my young family.


A few years later I was introduced to the world balance and efficiency of Pilates. My very first Pilates session was given to me by none other than

Theo van der Riet Botha!


Initially, I studied the Stott method, followed by the Classical Method. In 1998 I opened the doors of Body Mechanix Wellness Centre in my garden cottage in Johannesburg.


The turning point in my career was in 2000, where I attended a workshop which Rael Isacowitz was teaching in Johannesburg.


In 2001, I completed the BASI Pilates Comprehensive Teacher Training certificate under the watchful eye of Rael Isacowitz himself.


It has always been a dream of mine to rename my studio within the BASI Pilates family - it is who we are as a team and a family.

BASI has made this all possible for me, for this, I am eternally grateful.
