Pilates for Neurological Conditions 

Pre-/Postnatal certified

Certified BARRE Instructor

I believe in the immense benefits of Pilates and I am passionate about educating my clients. Once you pay attention to your alignment and posture, you can really make a change.

There is nothing more rewarding to see a client walk out with a smile on their face, without aches and pain. Movement heals!

 

As a fully STOTT PILATES ® certified instructor, I rehabilitate clients with hip and knee replacements, shoulder injuries, numerous musculo-skeletal injuries, including herniated/bulged discs. I train clients with MS, Fibromyalgia, Osteoporosis and Scoliosis.

 

Whether you are new to Pilates, are pre-or postpartum, seek a challenge or are just bored of your usual workout routine; I promise you will find a workout that leaves you invigorated, refreshed and likely will let you feel those tiny muscles that you didn’t even know you had!

 

I would love to help you on this movement journey and hope you find the class a happy, inclusive, positive and body-changing place to be!

Reformer

Barre

Kasey began her mindful movement practice in 2010 and started instructing after her first Pilates teacher training in 2012. Initially, she was drawn to the role of mindful movement in maintaining physical health and creating body awareness but is increasingly interested in the role movement plays in healing bodies not just physically, but mentally and emotionally. She firmly believes that to move is to heal.

Kasey is currently training at Body Harmonics in Toronto to finish her full certification.

In her time outside of the studio, Kasey can be found running trails, sweating through WODs at Alchemy CrossFit, walking her Bernese mountain dog or hanging upside down with her daughter.

Pilates Mat

Reformer

ISP Certified

Julia is passionate about enabling health and well-being through engagement in meaningful activity. Through her own dedicated Pilates practice over the last 8 years, Julia’s love for this mind-body technique has continued to grow.

Her appreciation stems not only from the enjoyment of participating in Pilates but also from the impact it can have on day to day life. In addition to the many physical benefits of Pilates she is also interested in the potential benefits to mental and emotional well-being such as increased mindfulness through breath, body awareness and movement, increased confidence and self efficacy through setting goals and working to achieve them as well as the benefits of social connection through a friendly and supportive Pilates community.

As a result of the impact Pilates has had on her own life, Julia began her training to become a STOTT Pilates instructor in January 2019. She is now a STOTT Pilates certified Mat and Reformer instructor with additional injury and special populations training.

Sinead Gaffney

BODY HARMONICS Trained 

Pilates Mat

Reformer

Barre

Sinead began her relationship with movement at a young age having been a dancer since the age of 6. As she moved into her teen years she traded her ballet slippers in for running shoes and was a part of the local track and field team. 

This eventually led to horrible chin splints and injuries in her joints so she was looking for another form of fitness. 

She was introduced to Pilates by her older sister at 15 and found the combination of mind, body, and breath eased anxiety that she sometimes experienced as a adolescent.

Being a Pilates advocate for years she eventually started attending Barre classes and decided to go through with Barre training in 2016 shortly after her second child.

After the training she realized she had a passion and love for teaching and movement.

She completed her 200 YTT at DeLaSol Yoga Studios June 2017 and has been teaching ever since.

Most recently, Sinead completed her Pilates Mat and Reformer training which finally brought her back to her movement roots.

Noha Hassan

Fully Certified STOTT PILATES ® Instructor

  • Matwork

  • Cadillac, Chair and Barrels 

  • Reformer

ISP Certified 

Pre-/Postnatal certified

Certified BARRE Instructor

Noha embarked on the fitness journey in 2007 when she opened her own fitness studio based in Egypt. As a small entrepreneur, she was teaching group fitness aerobic classes, functional training, spinning and body conditioning.

 

In 2011, she got certified in Mat Pilates, offering STOTT Pilates for the first time in Egypt. Since then, she fell in love with the method. She dived further into it and got fully certified after she moved to Canada in 2014.

Pilates was a turning point in her practice. She enjoyed the ease of movement, the body and mind connection. She finds it an ideal fit for everyone; regardless of your sex or age, your coordination or your level of fitness; the micro-progression each exercise offers is ideal for a safe yet challenging movement practice. In 2016, she started working in Pilates studios in the area and enjoyed working in therapeutic Pilates settings.


Noha’s style of teaching is very informative. Her clients leave with valuable knowledge and use what they’ve learned in their sessions and apply it to day-to-day life.

ISP (Injuries and Special Populations)

Becky’s love for Pilates transpired almost immediately after her first class 8 years ago! She loved how it made her feel, the intentional movement, the mind and body experience and the reward of gaining strength and mobility especially with having Scoliosis!

For her, Pilates is her "good medicine" that keeps pain and discomfort away and keeps her mental health in check! This is when she realized her desire to teach others around her,  with the inspiration that it has given her.

 

Becky began her teacher training with Balanced Body in the spring of 2019, has completed her Mat and Reformer training and is currently continuing her education with a focus on Injury and Special Populations.
