About Eve

My name is Evelyne but everyone calls me Eve… My own Pilates journey began over 10 years ago but movement has always been a very important part of my life.

I fell in love with Pilates when I realised how much difference it made to my hip aches and pains. After each Pilates class I would feel connected to my body, feel stronger and more flexible (not to mention the improved headspace!).

In fact, I loved it so much that I decided to train as a Pilates teacher. My first teacher training was in a more contemporary style but once I discovered classical Romana’s Pilates I realised what I had been missing: the brilliance of “the system” passed down from Joseph Pilates to his protege Romana Kryzanowska.

Over the course of three years, I was trained by Rebecca Convey (Level III) at Kinetic Pilates in London, took seminars and exams with Jane Poerwoatmodjo (Level III), and Marjorie Oron (Level X) from The Pilates Studio in The Hague. I continue to be inspired by the incredible teachers within the Romana’s Pilates community and I take regular lessons and attend workshops to refine my knowledge and teaching abilities.

I opened the BodyAct Pilates studio in Cranbrook in 2016. I since had a hip resurfacing procedure and thanks to Pilates my mobility and strength has never been this good.

Every client coming through my studio door is unique in how they move, why they want to take up Pilates and what they want to achieve from practising Pilates. So every person is treated differently but with the same attention to detail, curiosity and desire to help. I will challenge you to move with ease, to step away from your  discomfort and fear and to explore your untapped movement potential. In order to build a strong, better aligned body which in turn lead to a better quality of life.
