Pilates Collective Online
Offering Online Pilates Group and Individual classes focusing on gaining flexibility through movement and yoga.
Hi, I am Halleli and welcome to the pilates collective :)
My aim here at the Pilates Collective is to create a peaceful space for our Collective members to practice fitness through Pilates using elements of Yoga combined with stretching exercises targeting specific muscle groups in order to strengthen and maintain core body strength.
Also that people can come and feel part of an online community that shares similar passions for health, spirituality and well-being.
I use elements from my training in ballet and movement skills, combined with my acquired pilates and yoga knowledge to create inspiring and unique lessons.
About My Practice
I have had a passion for dance and movement skills from an early age, I love meeting people and sharing my knowledge of Classical Pilates and healing through movement.
After graduating from the Sandcial School of Dance and Circus Skills in 2009, I went on to study at the Prestigious Nissan Nativ School Of Acting in Tel Aviv. It was here that I discovered that Pilates would combine my love of yoga and movement which led me to pursue my path as a teacher. I studied the Pilates Instructor Course and Anatomical Physiology Training with renowned Instructor Simone Markman. Since qualifying as a Professional Instructor, I have successfully mentored and hopefully inspired groups and individuals of all ages to achieve and surpass their exercise goals.
In 2010, I embarked on a ten day Vipassanā meditation course which has helped me tremendously with my approach towards teaching and understanding of yoga methodology.

How I can help
Strength & Healing
Even though the main focus is on your core strength, Pilates also plays a part in developing a full-body workout. It ensures that no specific muscle is overdeveloped and underdeveloped, giving you that perfect lean body you are looking for.
Can Pilates help me?
A few of the many health benefits of our group classes
It's a good workout for your entire body
Even though the main focus is on your core strength, Pilates also plays a part in developing a full-body workout. Our classes ensure that no specific muscle is overdeveloped and underdeveloped.
Improves your posture
Poor posture forms as a result of bad habits such as slouching at your desk and chair, which can eventually cause back ache, neck ache, headache, etc. The bad habits will result in asymmetrical muscle development, where some muscle are weaker than others. Pilates can help to strengthen those underdeveloped muscles and get rid of bad posture.
Places no pressure on your knees and joints
Since Pilates consists of slow and controlled movement, there is minimal impact on your joints. This naturally ideal for those who cannot take part in high-impact sports and exercises.
Boost your mental health and encourages you to improve your focus and concentration
Our classes aim to create a body & mind relationship, where concentration, focus and meditation come together to help boost your mental health.
An important part of Pilates is that it pushes you to focus on your body, breathing and how they all work and move together. It is with focus and concentration that you are more likely to benefit from the exercise.
Tension can get built up in the muscles. But through gentle stretching and conditioning, it can help to metabolize the stress hormones that are built up.
Naturally, less stress in your body also means less stress in your mind.
Gentle but challenging
Don’t be fooled that many exercises are in reclining or sitting positions. Nor the fact that it is a low-impact form of exercise that doesn’t put pressure on your joints. Our group classes are a perfectly gentle and safe exercise for everyone but still challenging enough, as there are categories ranging from beginner to advanced.
As the challenge and intensity increases, your body adapts to the exercises and your body conditioning improves.
Great exercise during and after pregnancy
One of the great benefits of Pilates is how it can help with spinal and pelvic alignment. This is particularly beneficial for pregnant women and women who have just given birth, as the physical changes that come with pregnancy can put a strain on your alignment.
During pregnancy, Pilates can help to maintain your level of fitness, strengthen your pelvic muscles and also promote efficient body mechanics. These are ideal as your body prepares for the strain of childbirth.
During childbirth, the strengthened pelvic floor will also make it easier for mothers-to-be to give birth.
And after the pregnancy, we can help you to recover to a pre-pregnancy body.
Gives you a lean, tall body…
Pilates does not give you bulky muscle. The elongation and stretching of your muscles are more likely to promote a lean, tall body.
We can give you a tailor made exercise program to help with any specific requirements or needs. Please contact us for a free consultation session
My goal is to offer physical and mental conditioning programs that suit the health needs and fitness experiences of everyone. Contact me to find out more about my classes and how Pilates can benefit you :)
