Marieke Van Der Tol (Pilates Instructor)

Marieke began practicing Pilates after the birth of her third and youngest in 2009. She suffered a mild lower back pain. After the second class, she felt a release. Her enthusiasm grew with every lesson. In 2013 Marieke completed the Comprehensive Teacher Training Program at Smartbody Pilates Studio in Amsterdam. In 2015 she completed the BASI Probridge Training, and is now a certified BASI instructor working toward certification at the mentor level. ‘Getting to know your own body in an active way – not only your strengths, but also your weaknesses – is a great journey. Pilates takes you on this journey where body and mind learn to work as a team.’
