Meet our mint team

BIANCA

Founder and Owner of Mint Pilates Studio / Mat and Reformer Pilates Instructor

I have been teaching Pilates for a decade and am more involved now than ever before. I come from a dance background and had hoped to pursue dancing professionally but the training was too harsh on my body and therefore I suffered numerous injuries. These injuries lead me to my Pilates journey and my recovery to mental and physical wellness. Everyday is an opportunity to learn something new, especially as a Pilates body. I believe that Pilates is a way of life, it encourages you to apply yourself to simple tasks more mindfully and all decisions regarding nutrition, posture and emotional health are done from a place of self-love and respect. I am so honoured to have had the opportunity to create a space where my team and I can share our MoveMint journey and guide our clients through theirs.

Mint Mat Instructor

Pilates has been part of my life for more than 12 years. I continue to learn something new about my own body and movement every time I’m in the studio. There’s a new challenge in every lesson. I grabbed the opportunity to train as an instructor at Mint with both hands. Being part of a team with such a positive outlook on life and wellness has been very rewarding. And being able to share this with others is something I look forward to doing in my own teaching.
