I have never meditated before. Will I be able to follow a 30 min session?
The guided meditation is an excellent way to initiate yourself into meditating. As a facilitator of this session, I will equip you with the tools needed for you to be able to meditate in your own time.
You are traveling. Where and how will you teach me?
I can teach from any nice and quiet place I find on my way. I can also teach you from the inside of my mobile home, especially during my night time. I have built the interior of my van in a cozy way to be able to teach from inside. You will love it!

Of course! Everyone is welcome to try out my online session. I teach people of all ages. I also offer senior citizens a special rate.
Do I need a laptop, tablet or a phone?
You can use any device. However, a laptop is highly recommended as you’d be able to better see my demonstrations and corrections.
Are the online sessions just as effective as in-person ones?
Yes. I will demonstrate each exercise, offer you clear explanations as well as corrections. I will ensure that you are assuming the right positions and will check in with you to see what sensations you are experiencing. I started teaching online during the pandemic to provide continuity of treatment to my clients. They expressed that they were satisfied with the services I had rendered.
How much space do I need for my session?
Position your laptop or tablet 1.5 to 2 metres away from where you are for a session on the mat. For a session which involves you to be standing upright, please place your laptop a good 3 metres away from you.

Is it the same price if someone else decides to join me online ?
You can find all the prices on my pricing page. I charge an extra for each person more per session.
What is the main difference between face-to-face teaching and online teaching?
In my face-to-face sessions, I am accustomed to gently manipulating the bodies of my clients as I deem necessary. They simply have to focus on their breath-work. During the online sessions, more active listening and learning are required on the part of the clients. Essentially, the clients learning online will have to take more responsibility for their own learning.
Are your courses similar to those offered at the gym?
There are different ways to teach Pilates. In general, Pilates classes offered at a a fitness club are taught differently from how I would approach it. My courses are designed in a way where focus is placed on precision of movements as well as breath-work. I focus on ensuring that my clients make progress at their own pace. In that sense, these sessions are not performance-oriented. Rest assured that these low-impact courses will certainly challenge you to change for the better.
What to expect from my free trial session?
We will discuss your health goals so I can customise the exercises to your needs. We will put this into practice and take a few minutes for feedback at the end.
