Sonia has STOTT PILATES Level 2 Full Certification and a Diploma in Nutrition from Otago University
Sonia’s career in the fitness industry began in 1984 with Les Mills. She started Progressive Pilates in 2001 and changed her focus and direction in the health and fitness industry. Sonia’s passion has always been movement and teaching.
As she aged, Sonia felt the drive to find a program she could teach that improved flexibility, increased muscle strength and tone, in turn providing herself and clients with increased physical and mental wellbeing.
Pilates for Braidy began from a very early age, having grown up with her Mum (Sonia) teaching nearly her whole life. Throughout the years Braidy did the odd Pilates class with her Mum (though she never listened). It was only in early 2018 that she started to develop her passion for it. Braidy has now been teaching full time for 2 years & has never looked back. In this time she has become a fully trained STOTT Pilates instructor. Braidy loves connecting with clients on a daily basis and watching them grow stronger both physically and mentally.
