Hello, I'm Alice! I'm half South African, half German. I'm a certified Pilates and Vinyasa Yoga instructor, as well as choreographer and dancer (www.alicekokdance.com). I moved to Paris early 2018 where I now teach Pilates, Yoga and dance in French and English.
My ceaseless passion for movement in its various forms has inspired me to enrich my practice and knowledge of these disciplines while training in Johannesburg, Paris, Berlin and Los Angeles.
The combination of Pilates and Yoga has kept my body strong, flexible and centred throughout my dance career.
In my Pilates classes you may find a twist of Yoga, and in my Yoga classes you may find a hint of Pilates.
I have been teaching private and group classes as well as corporate classes since 2012.
Would you like to try a session with me? Pilates or Yoga?
Or maybe a fusion of the two?
Pilates focuses on strengthening the core: the muscles of the abdomen, back, glutes and hips. These muscles are referred to as the ‘powerhouse’ and are the key to stability throughout any type of movement.
Pilates is a safer option for those prone to injury, those with sensitive joints, or those who are exploring this type of exercise for the first time.
Both Pilates and Vinyasa Yoga emphasise the mind-body connection, both develop strength and flexibility, and both leave you feeling centred, energised & calm.
Vinyasa Yoga is an energetic style of yoga that coordinates breath with the movements that transition the body into and out of asanas (yoga postures). This results in a cardio-vascular workout throughout which balance, stability and concentration are challenged.
A Vinyasa Yoga class is most suitable for those with a certain degree of strength and mobility.
