Private Pilates lessons can assist with specific goals such as weight loss and control, pain relief, or injury rehabilitation. Pilates is also a great form of exercise to help both Men and Pregnant women to strengthen their core.
It makes sense that when couples participate in Pilates activities together, their bond ultimately grows stronger.
When you take the Pilates journey with others, you feel less stress and anxiety about the process and get to enjoy a unique fellowship based on motivation.
Through Pilates, children can gain awareness of their body, and learn how to move efficiently and gracefully. As children grow, their bodies are in a constant state of change and development.
If you are a mum with a young baby or toddler and can’t get out of the house easily or just need a kick ass instructor to help you to get into shape, all this is also now available over Skype.

What my clients have to say
Chris’ pilates sessions really helped to keep myself strong, fit and energised throughout both my pregnancies and got me back in shape in no time!
After a car accident that made a birth defect even more difficult to manage, I battled more and more with muscle atrophy in my right leg. The personalised Pilates instruction I have received from Chris – along with her cheer leading from the sidelines – has made a huge difference not only in building strength in my leg but also on a mental level – Chris believed in me and through her commitment to seeing me succeed, I started believing it myself. She helped me to focus onposture and muscle use and I have already noticed a huge difference!
I wanted to have a fit and healthy pregnancy, after all I was considered a geriatric mother!!!. I contacted Christiane, her page kept popping up on my FB feed and a couple of my friends had liked it. I was encouraged by her enthusiasm and knowledge. She referred me to testimonials from another pregnant woman. We discussed fees and she sent me a questionnaire.
It felt like a lot of money but after chatting it through with my hubby, he said something that really stood out. “If you aren’t prepared to spend what you make in an hour on yourself, once a week, then what is the point of working”. So true, and I wasn’t just spending the money, I was investing it into my and my baby’s future. So it was settled. I started classes the next week.
Christiane has been amazing. Throughout the pregnancy and on to the next one. She has supported me, aligned my program with my goals (and schedule), she has been flexible and creates an amazing place for me to go every week. The results spoke for themselves. Even though I was a geriatric mom, my labour was under 4 hours and I was back in pre-pregnancy clothes within 2 weeks of giving birth. And have never felt stronger.
I have visited a number of studios in the JHB area and with out a dout rate Chris no 1. She demonstrates, controls a large group and pays individual attention when needed. Chris you are great!!!
I love all Pilates classes with Chris! I have been lucky enough to have been to group, individual, couple and skype classes and in all cases her commitment to your personal goals is a great motivator together with the huge improvement to core strength and general well being.
Christiane Ebert has helped me lose weight and tone up. She challenges me and works within my limits. Which hasn’t stopped her from pushing me further. However, it’s a good persuasive push and not a shove. My journey hasn’t happened overnight. It’s been progressive and ongoing. The right coaching, the right eating lifestyle [not diet] and the best exercise [not a gym bunny, nope, not in the littlest bit]… yea, you need to check it out, stick it out and you’ll gain more than the right to parade around in public in your bikini despite being [insert your age] age. You’ll gain a few new brilliant friendships too.
The best and most dedicated pilates instructor ever! Challenges me every time and still have loads of fun in between! 😁
I started with Pilates in July 2018 after I had a back operation in Feb the same year. I was looking for exercises that would strengthen my back and core muscles but I gained so much more…. Not only did my back and core muscles became stronger, my back pain was also relieved. My fitness is so much better, most of my other muscles are toned and strong, my energy levels are up and because I look and feel better about myself, my confidence levels raised up! Thank you Christiane for working me into better shape.😁
I just had an amazing pilates session with Christiane. I know someone is a great teacher when they can spot my issues all the way from South Africa, via Skype. I had a sweat, she pushed me through my limits, I know I am going to feel this workout. It was really very good (and I have been around the block with pilates teachers and classes). Thank you very much Christiane!
