Susanne Gijsbers (Pilates Instructor)

Susanne Gijsbers has been teaching Pilates since 2010, specialising in Pregnancy and Postnatal classes. She helped establish Pregnancy Pilates at The Movement Practice, the first of its kind in Amsterdam in 2011. It was her Pilates experience during the pregnancy of her second son that inspired her to go deeper into the Pilates field. Intensive study with Yolande Green of Pregnancy Pilates and mat education with Debbie Jenner were her first certifications. In addition she holds comprehensive teacher certifications in Pilates mat and equipment with Smartbody 2011/2012, and a certification in Essentrics. She attended the BASI professional ProBridge course for mat and apparatus in 2015 and currently works toward a BASI certification. Her goal as a Pilates teacher is to pass on her enthusiasm for how Pilates makes you energised, strong and flexible, resulting in many ‘feel-good moments’!
