ABOUT PILATES
Pilates is for everyone who wants to consciously deal with his or her body. Pilates brings your muscles into balance and improves your posture. Pilates makes you feel slimmer and fitter.
During the Pilates training we work on finding the balance between body and mind and the connection between strength, flexibility and control. The center of strength is “the core”: the abdominal, back, buttock and thigh muscles. It is the point from which the exercises are built. The result is a powerful, flexible body, streamlined muscles, good posture and increased body awareness. Pilates does more: Pilates provides excellent support for sports such as running, tennis, golf, swimming, etc. Pilates makes you more resistant to sports injuries. To achieve the above results, the Pilates method uses exercises on different Pilates devices and on the Pilates gym mat.

THE PILATES TRAINERS AT PAM PILATES
The Pilates workouts are taught by Pam Garcia, Hanny v.der Schaaf and Dimitra Kolokouri.
Priscilla S.R. Cortèz is on maternity leave.
Pam Garcia is from the Netherlands and is trained as a Classical Pilates trainer for mat classes and apparatus, at the training institute Pilates Link. In addition to her training at Pilates Link, she has attended many workshops by internationally renowned Pilates (2nd Generation) and movement professionals, the latest of which was by Eric Franklin (Fascia and low back pain). She specializes in working therapeutically according to the 'Smart Spine method'. This method was developed by Marie-José Blom.
Pam finds it important to tune in to the course member as much as possible, so that people with injuries can also participate in the mat classes. Her goal is that everyone leaves the class with a good sense of movement.
Hanny van der Schaaf is from the Netherlands and first came into contact with Pilates about 7 years ago. Because of her enthusiasm and curiosity she has, next to her work in primary education, further developed herself and followed the Teacher Certification Program for basic, beginner, intermediate and advanced levels with Marjon van Grunsven, of Studio Memento in Den Bosch.
In July 2020 she started teaching Pilates classes. Since October 2021 Hanny is a certified Pilates trainer in the basic, beginner, intermediate level of the Classical Pilates Mat Work method. She is trained according to the principles of the Classical Pilates method, developed by Joseph Pilates. Hanny enjoys giving her classes, according to the basic principles of the Pilates method.
Hanny finds it important that people, through the Pilates lessons, feel fitter and stronger and therefore 'nicer in their bodies'.
Dimitra Kolokouri, born in Greece, started dancing at a young age. During her dance career, she discovered early on what Pilates could do for her body and how great the effect was on her dance performance.
After graduating from the Dance Academies of Athens and Tilburg, she followed and completed, together with Pam, the classical Pilates training at the training institute Pilates Link. Subsequently Dimitra completed a training for Yoga teacher.
For Dimitra it is important that people, through the Pilates lessons, start to move better and because of this become more connected to their bodies. Dimitra does this by observing people and offering guidance from a positive approach. Dance continues to influence her lessons and you can expect flow, energy and a surprising combination of movements.
