Self-love & Happiness advocate *Writer *Performer *Pilates
My name is Cindy and I am a international performer, writer, self-love & happiness advocate and Classical Pilates Trainer. During my life as a professional international performer I went through a lot of struggle finding my way through the wilderness called showbiz. It was in those moments of unsteady employment, dealing with fierce competition and also dealing with personal heartbreaks, I realise I needed a tool to keep me balanced and positive. This is when I started my own gratitude & happiness journey inspired by a quote I read from Oprah Winfrey. When I was unemployed, living on my moms couch and dealing with failed relationships, I realised I had to take it on myself to make myself happy and not wait for a job or a boyfriend to do that. This is when I started my HAPPINESS JOURNAL AND GRATITUDE JOURNAL. I started focussing on the things that are working out in my life. And this really changed my life for the better. Because it worked for me, I am sharing this in the hope this will help other people too.
My Pilates journey started in 2001. This is when I started to train as a dancer and Pilates was a part of the curriculum. Pilates really complimented my training as a dancer my core (abs) was strong and it helped me improve my flexibility. In 2005 I received my BA as all-round performer and my BA in Dance Education. During my international career as a performer I discovered that I was only focussed on my career as a performer, so I went looking for more skills to own. Because of my background in teaching and my experience with pilates, I started teaching Pilates. In 2014 I wanted to learn more and started taking Pilates Instructor courses and couldn’t stop. I completed 7 Classical Pilates Courses from beginners to advanced and Classical Pilates Reformer. I have been practicing pilates for the last 18 years and I have been teaching Pilates for the last 8 years. I started this online course because I would like to share my passion for pilates with you all.
