ABOUT US

The Pilates Difference Studio is a Pilates and Barre Studio in Plettenberg Bay. We are a Stott Pilates® trained studio with additional schools of training contributing to our offerings; including internationally acclaimed bootybarre®. We offer Group classes on the Mat and Barre as well as various equipment sessions to smaller groups, duos and privates. We have Cadillacs, Reformers, Ladder Barrels, Stability Chairs and Suspension Trainers.

The Studio was opened in January 2017 by Colleen Tomlinson. Her vision for The Pilates Studio was to provide a Pilates and Barre Studio that celebrates the true essence of Pilates and all that the discipline stands for. To teach people Pilates in order to empower them to become stronger, healthier, more mobile, more connected

and more balanced. To make people aware that Pilates is not just an exercise routine, but rather a way of life and a commitment to ones well-being.

At The Pilates Difference our focus is on the client and their experience with us. We put a lot of energy into creating a space that is warm and filled with positive energy, which leaves all our clients feeling energised, invigorated and often sweaty!

Our bright, spacious studio is positioned in the centre of town in the elegant Yellowoods Centre. We are conveniently located next to a variety of eateries, coffee shops and stores. Situated alongside a quieter street which allows for more parking, we have a view of the endless Keurbooms beach and Bay.

I am Anandi your pilates instructor at The Pilates Difference. My pilates journey started in 2012, and despite a break after having my baby I soon realised I wanted to take it further so I qualified with Pilates Unlimited shortly before relocating to Plettenberg Bay.

I am Fiona your pilates instructor at The Pilates Difference. I embarked on my Pilates journey 8years ago as a client, with very few expectations. At that point I was a spinner and cardio fanatic and I honestly thought Pilates would be too slow for me. How wrong I was!
