About Me

Hi I am Shivani- a busy mother of two and an ex city worker. Having worked in the city for 12 years, I fully appreciate the toll an office life takes on your body – the human body is not designed to be sitting for such long periods. When I left my job, I embarked on a strenuous exercise regime to get fitter but ended up with aches and back related problems. A visit to the physiotherapist highlighted that these were the result of having a weak core. Upon her recommendation, I took up Pilates and soon found myself hooked on to it as the results were tangible – increased strength, improved posture and a transformation in my body shape.

I continued with my passion for Pilates by attending regular classes but my understanding of Pilates as a discipline really turned on its head when I started training with Body Control. The Body Control method, in particular their highly renowned Matwork Certification course, was the most effective as it had a greater focus on precision of technique and safe teaching methods.

The quality of my life has changed in so many ways since commencing Pilates –both physically and mentally and I am passionate about sharing this wonderful knowledge with others.
