Nilzen

Instructor

Nilzen became interested in sports as a child and has studied martial arts for much of her life, holding a Black belt in Goshin Ryu Karate and 2nd Dan Black Belt in Taekwondo. Mind, body, spirit, focus, concentration, diaphragmatic breathing, precision, and fluidity, these are some of the philosophies used in the martial arts and form the core of Pilates. “Pilates is the key to the mind-body link that is so important to martial arts training. These remarkable exercises dramatically improve your static & dynamic balance; Static balance gives you the ability to control your body’s centre of gravity”.

Nilzen came across Pilates over 10 years ago and fell in love with it. I’ve made it my goal to learn and teach Pilates, also practicing Hatha Yoga for over 15 years and Tai Chi. After having her children, Nilzen decided she wanted to focus on non-contact sport and still work on optimum fitness and health. My love for Pilates developed not only because it challenges me physically, it also has strengthened my core, and keeps me strong and injury free.

In her spare time, Nilzen immerses herself in Community Theatre both on Stage and behind the scenes as well as spending time with my husband and two boys.
