BRENDA NASSALI-LISTON

I am Level 3 Pilates teacher trained with Body Control Pilates

I started pilates at dance college. Pilates helped me heal from dance injuries. 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.

 

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'm currently training with the Art of Motion Academy to learn how to teach Slings Myofascial Movement, 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.

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 in early 2022.
