What’s The Infinity Movement Difference? Glad You Asked...
Our passion sent us on a global quest for knowledge over the last 40 years. Learning from masters and gaining deep experience has allowed us to support our own healing and growth of others. Little did we know where this exciting journey would take us at the beginning when we left our careers in business finance and motor racing behind to follow our hearts.
Our multi-dimensional and integrated approach blends the study of movement, biomechanics, physiology, and neuroscience, the connection to the brain and how you think, feel and move, leading to measurably accelerated results for the people who entrust their well being to us. This is one of the many strengths of the Infinity Movement training methodology - we look at more than the muscular system; we look at all the other systems in the body and how movement assists the body as an integrated whole.
Movement heals and with a strong knowledge of the body, mind and experience of being movers, Infinity Movement is a rarity in the Pilates world.
As well as our years of teaching experience, we literally have thousands of kilometres of movement experience having been active in the marathon and triathlon scene for years as well as aerial arts, yoga, TRX, kettle bells, weights, boxing and Les Mills instructing - the only dancing has been on the dance floor. From those kilometres came accidents and injury. The lessons for rehab were personally learnt – Pilates was the foundation to rebuild, recover and move forward. It lead to an even deeper look into the body and brain and the self talk needed to trust again. Endurance racing teaches many lessons, including the patience and commitment needed to work on ourselves and with others.
What you see on the outside is rarely what is happening on the inside, your eyes, ears and heart are powerful tools when it comes to training people. We will teach you these skills.
Infinity Movement training is based on a wholistic approach to the body, stemming from a deep foundation in both classical and contemporary Pilates training – two systems brought together and combined to give the most comprehensive Pilates training on the market today.
We believe there no one “right” way to move or to teach; we teach you how to be adaptable with what and to whom you are training and who you are as their teacher. We empower and encourage clients and trainees to step out of their comfort zone; physically and mentally and become aware. Our strictness with optimal alignment is paired beautifully with our sense of curiousity to play with movement and breath, there is no one right way.
Freedom both in the body and in the choice of movement style is vital, and Infinity Movement trainers have 2 unique styles to share with you. Regarded as the best in each of the 12 countries they have lived and worked in, their international experience has lead them to be highly sought after as both trainers and educators
