Editor-in-chief Marjolein van Sonsbeek gives a personal tip to all readers of Pilatesglossy. Marjolein wholeheartedly recommends studio Pilates Rotterdam in The Netherlands to you, a beautiful, light and fully equipped studio. The studio is located on the Rijnhoutplein 2 in Rotterdam. Although Marjolein is not unbiased, because she trains at this studio every week and frequently takes workshops here. The reason she’s this enthusiastic is because after training with various different trainers for years, she feels she’s finally found ‘the one’! The quality this studio provides is unprecedented and that’s why Marjolein feels she’s very fortunate to be able to train there. The Netherlands should be proud of so much Pilates expertise!
Exceptionally well performance
The personal training sessions Marjolein visits are all taught by the owner of the studio, Javier Velazquez. Before Javier became a Pilatesteacher he has been a successful ballet dancer for many years. Javier used to dance with the Royal Ballet, the Scapino Ballet and other companies. Early on in his ballet career Javier was introduced, like many ballet dancers, to Pilates, and he’s been practicing Pilates since 1984. He used to train with Romana Kryzanowska – he even lived in her house for some time – and she gave him a total of 4 Goldcards. This card is only handed to those who perform the GoldCard- order exceptionally well.
At Pilates Rotterdam the teachers will only train you in the purest form of Pilates. All of the trainers there were previous Pilates instructors, but were also trained by the extremely dedicated Javier, who strives to teach the pure method, the way Joseph meant it. Camieke Huisman, Eva Hasselbach, Irena Mirsilic and Mariska Barnard are a permanent part of the team in Rotterdam. Joseph Pilates called his own method Contrology and Javier maintains the true nature of this method. The brilliance of Contrology contains more than most Pilates trainers realize. Everyone at Pilates Rotterdam is very capable to train clients, but they’re also amazing when executing Pilates themselves!
Lots of possibilities
Try booking a class with a trainer from Pilates Rotterdam. There are so many possibilities; you can book a groupclass, trio session, but the workshops for trainers and experienced practitioner are very interesting as well. You will learn True Pilates, with True Contrology! Don’t wait too long though, because there is a possibility you will end up on a waiting list. What can I say, quality is rare! firstname.lastname@example.org
