Heidi Byrne: Senior Instructor
Heidi Byrne was the owner of an upmarket Hair & Beauty salon in Brooklyn Pretoria for 18 years. Being a hairstylist herself, she was exposed to long hours of standing, and as a result suffered severe lower back pain. She was introduced to Pilates, and from the very first session there was no turning back. After six months of practice, with no back pain, she fell in love with Pilates and decided to follow a new calling. She completed the Comprehensive Pilates Teacher Training Certificate with BASI in 2008, under the mentorship of Theo van der Riet Botha (owner of Body Intellect).
Heidi sold her business and relocated to Cape Town, where she has been teaching Pilates on a full time basis for the past three years. Heidi has furthered her studies by attending the BASI symposiums. She has also had the privilege to do a workshop with Rael Isacwitz. Furthermore she attended the 5th Conscious Movement conference with presenter Brent Anderson from Polestar Pilates Centre in Miami.
Heidi knows that the benefit of a pain free life is the greatest gift!
