Certified Pilates Instructor
Banu has been teaching Pilates for more than 14 years. She completed her certification program in Europe and has worked with her master trainer for more than 4 years. In addition, she served as assistant master trainer as a part of her training program. Her philosophical approach to Pilates is “to always create a mutual learning relationship between student and instructor. As such, if the student does not master Pilates, then the instructor has not served his/her purpose.” She is passionate about Pilates and believes that everyone can learn Pilates but everyone has a different style. Banu practices Pilates everyday even if for only 15 minutes because “if you cannot feel it you cannot teach it.” Banu is also a follower of Kundalini Yoga as well as an avid swimmer and marathon runner.
