Simone Stoltz

My name is Simone Stoltz and I moved to Canada in 2012 from South Africa looking for new challenges (like the weather ;) I have always been deeply interested the human body and its movement, and nursing used to be my passion back in South Africa. But since moving to Canada I decided to pursue a different lifestyle and fell in love with Pilates and the STOTT method. I have been dancing since the age of six and my favorite is Tap Dancing. At the moment I am certified in Mat and Reformer Level1, Injuries and Special Populations as well as Zenga Equipment Level 1 and TRX Group suspension training. I am in the process of becoming fully certified and taking courses whenever I can fit them in. I would love to be fully certified in the (hopefully) near future and am always looking for the next challenge on the horizon.

Simone Stoltz instructs the following:
  • Reformer Flow
  • Let’s step it up! This is a dynamic, fun and fast paced class. Flowing exercises together and connecting movement with breath. A small step away from traditional Pilates, this class will challenge you to maintain stability, balance and breath as you move energetically from one exercise to the next, while changing tempo & range of motion. Quicker transitions, and fewer spring changes will ensure that you will make the absolute most of our 50 minutes together. There is an expectation that you are comfortable with the Pilates Principles, blueprint exercises and moving around the reformer safely.
    *This class is recommended for those who have completed a minimum of 6 Reformer Align classes and is not recommended for those recovering from an injury.

  • Reformer Jump
  • A higher energy, low-impact class that is perfect for cardio lovers. This interval class is creatively designed with Reformer exercises intermixed with jumping on the Cardio Tramp to enable plyometric movement against spring tension (rather than gravity) giving you an aerobic workout that is kinder to your joints.
