About the Studio

Established: bought business in October 2011, moved to current premises in June 2013.

The Studio recently changed it’s name from Pilate’s Body Centre to PB Studio, with an updated logo and fresher look.  We moved from Wierda Park Mall to our current location in Raslouw AH, which offers a more homely and relaxing environment.

The studio is small, offering 45 minutes of good quality, challenging individualised mat Pilates workouts.

The instructors offers expert training in functional movement and stability, and postural facilitation according to the Joseph H Pilates Method.

Our goal is to help you develop strength, flexibility, and endurance, and to improve posture, alignment, co-ordination, and balance.

“Patience and persistence are vital qualities in the ultimate successful accomplishment of any worthwhile endeavour.”
Joseph Pilates

The lead instructor and business owner is Janine Wright.

Janine became an instructor after being a Pilates student. She realised that Pilates was the ideal form of exercise for her, and decided to embark on a change in direction from the human resources and finances environment.

Having completed her Pilates course at Pilates Unlimited with Tanya Thompson, Janine took over the Pilate’s Body Centre Studio in 2011 and she has been enjoying herself ever since.

In March 2015, Janine attended a fascia releasing course, which enhanced her understanding of the body and what causes limitation in range of motion, mobility and flexibility. During this course she was briefly introduced to a modality called TRE (Trauma Releasing Exercises). Janine became a qualified TRE provider in August 2016.  At the end of 2018 Janine completed Modules 1 & 2 of an Emmett Technique course.  Adding this soft touch muscle repatterning and stress releasing technique to her repertoire gives her another technique to help her clients achieve a feeling of well being and pain free living.

Janine continuously looks for new and innovative ways to help clients achieve the best that is possible for their bodies.  She enjoys working for herself, and encourages her clients to work hard in their classes to gain the all the benefits that Pilates has to offer.

Marcelle’s Pilates jouney started 15 years ago when she attended her 1st class with a friend. The foundation she built as a Pilates student assisted her later whilst completing a Btech degree in the performing arts.
Marcelle completed her Pilates course at Pilates Unlimited and is excited to share all the benefits Pilates has to offer with the students at PB studio.
