Romy Sacks – Studio Owner
I discovered the Pilates method after being involved in a car accident which left me with chronic whiplash. As someone who was always serious about fitness, I needed to find a suitable exercise method that would not only keep me strong and active but would also provide me with much-needed rehabilitation.
I tried various methods of training but didn’t get any satisfactory results until my physiotherapist recommended that I try Pilates. From my first class, I was hooked and within weeks I could feel the change in my body.
This life-changing experience made me a passionate promoter of Pilates so training as a Pilates instructor seemed the natural thing to do. I take great pleasure in the fact that I can spend my days sharing with others what helped me so much in my life.

Zoe Hannan – Instructor
I have a very strong classical training background and always thought I would be a professional ballet dancer. After my experience dancing with Cape Town City Ballet though I discovered my love for the body. I felt that with the knowledge I’ve gained from Pilates, I no longer wanted to put my body through torture for the stage.
I believe that no matter what you do, dance, work at a desk, or if you are consistently on the move, pilates/body conditioning should be a part of your everyday life. I started Pilates to improve my strength and began to realize the importance of Pilates. I started teaching Pilates during my studies at UCT and once I qualified as a Contemporary Dance teacher I began teaching Pilates to private clients.
I’m very invested in the correct technique of Pilates, the details are in the small things. I always hope to give clients a better understanding of their bodies. I am patient and I hope I can teach clients to be patient with themselves too.

Getanya McClean – Instructor
I have struggled with my own body issues since birth and this has led me to study and understand anatomy and movement from a very young age, to find something that would allow my body to work and function on a “normal” level.
Pilates was one of the forms of exercise I did as a teen, helping me to strengthen my body for my dancing & allowing my body to be able to meet the requirements that the teachers & choreography required of me. After I danced professionally and got out of the dance world, I studied personal training, Body science specializing in spinal cord injuries, and the full comprehensive program of Basi Pilates.
I have loved working with hundreds of clients over the years, not just to move their bodies in class but to learn about their bodies so that they can live a more healthy and active lifestyle.
I work with our body’s energy system, if your energy is blocked it can cause a negative mindset, physical pain, or illness. Which is what I help to heal and integrate into our physical body during my Chakra-Lates programs and classes.
I use the basic Pilates & functional movements while queuing from a place of the Chakras & energy movements, as well as mindset, visualizations, or mantras. Clients have called it a Spiritually integrated Pilates session.
