Lore is Pilates Instructor since 2008. She initially integrated this into her work as a Personal Trainer, later she started taking group lessons. Now she guides people in groups and privately with meditation, mindfulness and yoga, but Pilates remains part of her offering because it is important in a broader aspect of well-being. Pilates works on the 'core', the 'powerhouse' and the posture of the body. If you have good core muscles, a proud, open attitude, this has a direct effect on how you feel and what you radiate, which in turn influences the rest of your life. The combination of Pilates, meditation and proper nutrition and exercise can bring about deep transformations in people. Pilates provides the powerful, physical core (abdomen, pelvis, back, neck) that allows you to move more correctly in daily life and in other sports. A good posture gives self-confidence, more energy and resilience, less stress and back and neck complaints, better digestion / intestinal function...
Lore puts a lot of focus on technique and has a good eye for seeing how the movement is performed by someone and how to correct it. Her instructions and guidance ensure that Pilates can best come into its own through correct teaching and practice. It is taught in smaller groups, as is best for Pilates. Be sure to ask her how to start and improve.
Lore gives the Pilates Open Level class on Saturday morning at 9am.
