Over 20 years ago, at the age of 30, I found Pilates. It changed my physical health and how I my body functions. I spent my entire youth as an athlete. My main sport was rowing but I was also a swimmer, gymnast, dancer, baseball player, basketball player and even American football. I new what it meant to workout hard. To compete. To win. To be the best at something. To be a champion. But I also new what it felt like to be in pain and to feel the limitations of my body’s strength. I did not yet know Pilates. I did not discover Pilates until after my first child had been born. And finding Pilates had nothing to do with recovery from that birth although I wish I’d had it then! I came upon Pilates by chance or by fate and it forever improved my body, my health and my life for the better.

I encourage you to come and try Pilates with me to find out how it can change your life too. I truly love it. Now at age 51 and after having birthed three wonderful children, I feel more fit and healthy than ever before! Pilates is perfect for any age, any sex, every physical ability level.

For athletes it is particularly ideal as it will help you get to the next level, help prevent injuries and speed recovery after competitions. Everything else becomes easier once you have Pilates in your body.

Peggy-sue Noth

Yoga Instructor

Tuesday @ 19:00 Evening Yoga

Peggy-sue ist in Biel geboren und lebt mit ihrer Familie in Evilard. Schon in ihrer Kindheit hatte Tanz und Bewegung einen wichtigen Platz in ihrem Leben. 2008 gründete sie eine Tanz-Theater-Gruppe für Kinder und kam 2012 das erste Mal mit Yoga in Kontakt. Nach einer intensiven Yoga- und Tanz- Zeit absolvierte Peggy-sue das 200h-Teacher-Training bei Nakul Kapur und Karin Rüger Yogassva in Magglingen. Im 2017 startete sie ihr 300h-Advanced-Yoga-Teacher Training bei Nakul Kapur in Zürich und bildet sich fortan bei nationalen und internationalen Workshops stets weiter. Der kraftvolle und zugleich liebevolle Umgang mit dem eigenen Körper, eine bewusste Atmung und die korrekte Ausrichtung spielen eine zentrale Rolle in Peggy-sue’s Unterricht. Sie unterstützt ihre Schüler, sich selbst besser wahrzunehmen und ihren Geist zur Ruhe zu bringen. Auch ist es ihr ein Anliegen, dass sich die im Yoga gelernte Achtsamkeit im Alltag integrieren und anwenden lässt und jeden Einzelnen dort abzuholen wo er oder sie steht und sie mit viel Sorgfalt in die Kunst des Yoga einzuführen. Peggy-sue unterrichtet auf Deutsch und Französisch.

Peggy-Sue est née à Bienne et vit avec sa famille à Evilard. Depuis son enfance, la danse et le mouvement occupaient une place importante dans sa vie. En 2008, elle a fondé un groupe de théâtre-danse pour enfants et est entrée en contact avec le yoga pour la première fois en 2012. Après une période intense de yoga et de danse, Peggy-Sue a terminé la formation d’enseignant de 200 heures avec Nakul Kapur et Karin Rüger à Macolin. En 2017, elle a commencé sa formation de professeur de yoga avancée de 300h avec Nakul Kapur à Zurich et continue de se former lors de workshops nationaux et internationaux. La manipulation puissante et affectueuse en même temps de son propre corps, une respiration consciente et l’orientation correcte jouent un rôle central dans les leçons de Peggy-Sue. Elle aide ses élèves à mieux se percevoir et à se calmer. Il est également important pour elle que la conscience acquise par le yoga puisse être intégrée et appliquée dans la vie quotidienne, que chaque individu soit où il se trouve et qu’il soit introduit avec le plus grand soin dans l’art du yoga.

Stina Perrottet

Yoga Instructor

Wednesday TBA Yoga for Beginners

I was introduced to Hatha Yoga when I was 10 years old. Ever since then it has been my source of bringing my body, mind and soul into harmony. Since the age of 15 I have wanted to help others discover this beautiful, natural path to good health and wellbeing. Now as an adult and mother to four children I have enjoyed practicing Yoga both for myself and together with my children. The experience of sharing Yoga with friends and family inspired me to become a Yoga instructor and led me to the Karin Rüger Yogassva Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in 2022 in Magglingen. As a new instructor I am so excited to help bring the wonders of Yoga to my community of Evilard!
