What is Pilates?
“It is the mind itself which builds the body…” ~Joseph Pilates
Named after its German inventor, Joseph H. Pilates, a boxer and dancer who also studied yoga and Zen meditation, the technique encompasses more than 500 controlled, precise movements designed to stretch and strengthen the muscles without adding bulk. The exercises require concentration – working the body and mind.
They focus on “core” muscles – the abdomen, back and buttocks – together with deep, coordinated breathing. Correct posture and lower risk of injury are two benefits of the regimen.
The Pilates system emphasizes musculo-skeletal balance, proper breathing and spinal alignment. This combines control of the abdominal, ease of movement and mental focus, Joseph Pilates’ focus was restoring the body to true balance.

The Best Pilates Studio in Stellenbosch
Pilates@myplace is a wonderful studio where every care is taken towards the satisfaction of us. Elsabe is very detail-oriented and focused on our well-being that we all become friends rather than clients. As an instructor, she regularly follows up after classes to make sure we’ve benefited from the previous class, is always interested to improve her sessions to make it as enjoyable and productive as possible and very attentive to reduce any chance of injuries.
Pilates at my Place provides a peaceful, happy environment in which to exercise and Elsabe’s attention to each individual during group sessions ensures that we know how to do all movements correctly. I always look forward to my weekly session.
Pilates@myplace has become an integral part of my lifestyle over the past 3 years. I am stronger than ever. The small classes ensure that personal attention is possible. Classes vary and are never the same which ensure that we get a good overall workout.
My Pilates@myPlace classes has improved my core stability, increased my strength & flexibility and bought me an increased awareness of body posture. For sure one of the best things I could have done for myself! #lovingit #bestinstructorever
My husband and I have had Elsabe coming to our house for 2 years, post baby and during pregnancy. She is so knowledgeable and incredibly attentive to each person’s aches and pains and weak points. Always punctual and always follows up on how we are the day after class
‘n Paar jaar gelede het ek my eerste pilates klas saam met ‘n vriendin bygewoon. Een van my beste besluite ooit!! Ek was geskok om te ontdek hoe swak my balans en spiertonus werklik was. Pilates het my spiere so versterk dat ek vandag meer soepel as my kinders is! Jy word ook bewus van ‘n beter postuur – stap meer regop en beserings word verminder. Nog een van die vele voordele van Elsabe se klas is dat my fokus verskuif en na ‘n uur, is my spanningsvlakke veel laer.
Elsabe’s classes are always very well planned, different & interesting every time. She explains clearly & constantly checks to make sure exercises are done correctly. Classes always start on time and her communication, should there every be a change to the schedule, is excellent. She is a kind and caring person. Highly recommended!
