Pilates Noord was founded in 2018 by Eefje de Bruijn. Eefje is a pilates teacher with a design background. As a designer with long days of computer work, pilates, but also yoga and dance, always gave her strength and energy. She only really discovered the rehabilitative power of Pilates during her recovery from pelvic pain after her first childbirth and while learning to deal with hypermobility.
Eefje has completed the Polestar® Pilates Mat Training and the Polestar® Pilates Comprehensive Training. For Eefje, the Pilates method is the unique combination of conscious movement, getting to know your body better, relaxing and recharging. It is important to take good care of your body, Pilates contributes to staying flexible and strong into old age.
Since October 2021, Özlem has become co-owner of Pilates Noord. Özlem studied economics in Turkey and moved to the Netherlands in 2012 for a job at a bank. Shortly after moving to the Netherlands, she started following Pilates classes. She fell in love with the method and completed the Polestar® Pilates mat training in 2014 and the Polestar® Pilates Comprehensive training in 2015 and has been teaching ever since. In Özlem’s class, you’ll get detailed instructions, get tips on anatomy and alignment, and discover all the little muscles you didn’t know existed.
