About Pilates in Motion

Pilates in Motion is a boutique studio in Constantia. Our small classes allow for individual attention and focus on our clients.

Our Approach

Pilates in is not just about the time that you spend in the studio. It is about taking what you learn and integrating it into your life and lifestyle.

It is about allowing the breath to reduce daily stress and anxiety and the movement to balance our bodies and improve our posture often occurring in our technology driven/orientated lives.

Pilates heightens your awareness…..connecting your mind and your body.

It’s about allowing our bodies to feel good and for us to feel good in our bodies.

Meet Janice

Having matriculated in 1990, Janice decided to pursue her love of dance and enrolled at the University of Cape Town’s School of Dance where she graduated from the Teachers Training Program with Distinctions in choreography, contemporary dance and dance teaching methods. She went on to qualify as a ballet teacher for the Royal Academy of Dance and continued to study further to obtain her Advanced Teachers qualifications in modern dance from the A.I.D.T. and a folk dance teaching qualification from the ISTD.

Taking up an employment offer from the Canadian branch of the AIDT, Janice traveled to Canada where she spent seven years working as the Artistic Director of Gemini Dance Studios, teaching and choreographing for the school’s Performing Arts program. With her accumulated knowledge and hands on experience, Janice trained the Canadian dance teachers in the AIDT method and entries into International Dance Competitions brought her numerous choreographic awards and a highly respected recognition in and amongst the broader dance fraternity.

Upon her return to South Africa in 2003, Janice enrolled at the Renee Watson Pilates Studio where she completed her full mat and equipment Pilates qualifications. She has also qualified as a Pilates Teacher with the Pilates Method Alliance giving her certification on an International level and has completed the GYROKINESIS® Foundation Teacher Training Course.

Janice was one of the founding members of the THEATRE DANCE ASSOCIATION when it formed in Cape Town in 2004. With input and involvement in choreographing the modern and ballet Syllabi, she remained on the Board and an Examiner with them until 2016.

In 2013 Janice opened her own studio, Pilates in Motion. She offers both Group and Private Sessions incorporating the use of equipment into both.

With her in depth knowledge of the body, her creative mind, boundless energy and dedication, Janice creates new and exciting opportunities for clients, teachers and dancers alike; teaching, lecturing, choreographing; inspiring and motivating the people who work with her daily.

    I love the fact that Pilates in Motion is incredibly professional, yet incredibly warm and fun at the same time. This is not easy to do. Your classes are well planned, with a target in mind, but you allow space for a relaxed environment where one feels at ease.
