“Dominic is more than a pilates instructor. She is extremely knowledgeable about the body and brings that knowledge to her clients. I was training for a 5-day hike when I discovered moveOn 89.Read More »
Unfortunately I had a very bad sprain in my foot and was seeing physios. I was very depressed and I thought that I couldn’t train, thereby missing my hike. Dominic is so skilled in the body that she expertly built the muscles I needed to hike (glutes, etc.) without putting weight on my foot. When I could put weight on my foot, the rest of my body was ready to train because of my sessions with Dominic. I truly think I wouldn’t have been ready for my hike without her skillful interventions. It was truly incredible what Dominic did for me. I have been doing pilates and yoga for 25 years and I know an expert when I see one. Dominic is truly an advocate for her clients’ health and strength. And she is just a lovely person all around. Highly recommend!”
“Dominic has an unique, intuitive sense of what is required in a session and I invariably felt energised and understood on a subliminal level afterwards. Highly recommended classes by Dominic and Michal.”

I have had Pilates classes overseas and Dominic is better than all of them. In addition Dominic has a wonderful personality. Well done Dominic and keep up the fantastic standard.”

Thank you so much – I’m so grateful having you in my life and helping me in keeping my balance– such a blessing!!! “.
“Really, I love Pilates and you have inspired me to try so much harder and I really love the things I can do now- such life-changing stuff.”
” I had tried Pilates a couple of times in Paris. But I didn’t go in very convinced as I’m normally more about loud music, gym and sweating!Read More »
But I quickly appreciated that I could get a workout while at the same time as getting to know my body better.
With Pilates, you have to find out which muscle to use, how well your back is positioned, etc. It really helps one to disconnect from your problems of the day and focus 100% on what you are doing.
This is why when I arrived in Cape Town a year and a half ago, I wanted to continue with Pilates and found the Kloof Nek studio. So far I have hardly ever missed a class.I literally fell in love with Dominic’s classes. She is a very friendly and technical teacher. The other clients are nice people, and the groups are small. And there’s good spirit!
So far, I can see the results in many aspects: my muscles are more toned and I am more flexible. It feels like I am giving my back a good massage twice a week (when you work on a computer all day long it is very appreciated!). Also my classes are my “own moment” in the week, the one time when I stop running and looking at my clock and have one hour just for myself, to relax and workout!In one word, I have became totally ADDICTED! “
“It’s like I can’t remember what my life was like before I found your Pilates studio! Happiness is.”
“I started off with just wanting to ‘try’ Pilates twice a week and ended up loving it so much, I have increased my weekly frequency. It is the only strength and core training that I do.Read More »
The classes are small and this allows the teachers an opportunity to correct both technique and posture.
I have been encouraged to challenge myself but without compromising on form and technique. Classes have helped me build excellent strength and made me more mindful in training. My breathing technique has helped my running and provided me with a more resilient mindset to tackle the day to day stresses we all experience. The physical results are elongated muscles and a strong core and back.
The harmonious studio environment is an ideal setting for the practice of yoga and pilates. Being an absolute “newbie” to yoga, I was really nervous but the teacher provided an amazing safe environment, with wonderful themes and never compromising on technique and form. I can highly recommend anyone try out a Pilates or Yoga class at Moveon89. It is the kindest and most rewarding gift you can give yourself. Yes, I am a convert “
” I started Pilates with Dominic about 10 years ago as I wanted to strengthen my core and improve my posture whist avoiding a gym!
Pilates is the only exercise that I’ve stuck with over the years as
I find it both gentle on my body as well as challenging and strengthening. It’s also the only exercise where my focus is entirely on what I’m doing at that present moment.
The studio is lovely; has the latest equipment, the rooms are clean and airy, as well as warm/cold depending on the season. They have everything I may need from hairbands to showers and the online booking system enables me to book or cancel a class straight from my phone. They also offer different packages and the more flexible option works for me as I often have work commitments.
I’ve continued with Pilates at moveOn 89 for so many years as they have the most amazing instructors. They really focus on the individual – even in a group environment, they are encouraging and keep the classes both interesting and challenging. And after so many years I’m still learning and improving!I do both group mat classes and private equipment sessions where the latter is focused entirely on my body and what I need. Also working with the resistance on the machines has improved my quality of movement and technique.A friend of mine started Pilates a year ago and recently told me that it’s changed her life. I feel the same, one of the best decisions I continue to make.”
“It was so great meeting you. Thank you for everything! You are an amazing pilates trainer and human. All the best from cold Berlin.”

moveOn 89 Studio was recommended by a friend.
And I’m so glad it was because Dominic, Michael and Claire are just fantastic teachers and I love their classes because they are varied.
Why do I keep coming back week after week? Because of the great ‘family/friend’ atmosphere and because I enjoy it very much. And I want to say thanks to all the awesome people at moveOn 89 for making this possible.”
