BRENDA NASSALI-LISTON

I am Level 3 Pilates teacher trained with Body Control Pilates.
Body Control Pilates is a medically-approved method and is one of the top Pilates education institutes in the UK & Europe. They were the first to establish a Level 4 Pilates qualification which is an industry standard.
 

I started doing Pilates at dance college. It helped me heal from dance injuries during and my dance degree and as a professional dancer. I tore my achilles in 2018 which is a very scary injury for a dancer, but I recovered well by doing pilates at home while I waited the 8 weeks for a hospital physio.

I did antenatal and postnatal pilates during both my pregnancies which really helped my body to heal and get back to a very physical dance training.

PURPOSE

The strength I get from doing Pilates helps me in every part of my life;  Walking uphill with my daughter on my shoulders, carrying heavy shopping, or being a strong dancer.
My purpose is to teach you Pilates in a way that will add to every part of your life.

I have a strong passion for foot health, strength & flexibility. There is so much to learn from our feet and how the healthy use and care of them can vastly improve our movement. 

 

PASSION

I'm incredibly passionate about sharing the benefits of movement with you. 

I love learning, which was the inspiration for my business name (learning is information).

I love learning about the body, movement and anatomy.

I've just finished my foundation level certification with the Art of Motion Academy to teach Slings Myofascial Training®, a scientifically-informed, fascia-focussed movement technique which is helping me to bring the two worlds of Pilates and fascia together. I'm already gaining so much benefit in my own body from this amazing work. I look forward to progressing to advanced level.

As I learn, my passion is to always bring it into my teaching. Nothing makes me happier than bringing new things to my clients. 

My classes focus on ease of movement in daily life by using functional exercises, mind and body connection, body awareness and strength building with a focus on breath and release.

In June 2021, I started my Reformer teacher training and hope to be offering Reformer sessions on a one-to-one basis in my home from Summer 2022.
