About SOL Pilates
"Inhale the good shit, exhale the bullshit"
My name is Sarah and I used to be part of the corporate world in France, in Paris and in Australia, in Sydney.
Back then, I would religiously go to my Pilates classes at every lunch break and I felt great!
A few life changes including a child and a couple of unsatisfying jobs meant that I dropped my beloved pilates routine. It didn’t feel good mentally or physically as my back gave me a fair bit of grief, especially as stress levels were high (which tends to be a vicious circle).
Pilates is now back in my life and there to stay!
Pilates is for every body!
Today as a qualified Pilates instructor, I want to help others find their inner strength to enjoy their everyday life, whether it involves sitting for long periods of time, looking after kids, working in a physical job or becoming stronger at another sport.
We all have these muscles that need to be stretched and others to be strengthened.
Some benefits of pilates
Increased muscle strength and tone, particularly of your abdominal muscles, lower back, hips and buttocks (the ‘core muscles’ of your body)
Pilates is a type of strength training exercise that encourages you to identify and work within the limits of your body.
Pilates will also get you working on your ‘little’ muscles – the ones that help with balance, core control and stabilise your body.
Pilates teaches you how to hold your neutral alignment, which can be beneficial in other areas of your training and physical activities.
Why SOL Pilates ?
SOL represents my family (it's the acronym of our 3 names).
It also means the sun in Spanish (the language I speak at home), which represents warmth and strength.
Finally, it also means the ground in French (my mother tongue), which is the place where we practice.
