Leading a physically active lifestyle as a very keen horse rider, an enthusiastic golfer and a qualified PADI Divemaster, puts a lot of demand on the human body. Mahani passionately believes that Pilates has allowed her to pursue these physically demanding activities and was the main driver to qualify to teach Pilates and to share her own experience on how to tap into the fundamentals of Pilates to strive for the physical wellbeing of each individual. Mahani offers enthusiasm in abundance and empathy which is unique to each person so they can improve their mobility and quality of life, regardless of their background, age and fitness level.
Mahani is a founding member of the Body Control Pilates Academy, a member of the Body Control Pilates Association (BCPA), a member of the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) and is very proud to have qualified as an EquipilatesTM Biomechanics TrainerTM.
To add variety in her teaching repertoire, Mahani qualified as a FitSteps instructor in early 2020. FitSteps is a dance based fitness programme developed by Ian Waite, Natalie Lowe and Mark Foster of Strictly Come Dancing fame. Recognising and developing rhythm is a very important element of horse-riding, which is her area of special interest. Above all, FitSteps is a Fitness programme that’s ‘Strictly’ fun!
