Lynn Grandjean was born in Malaysia and grew up in Australia, where she had a very active outdoor life. She studied at the University of Western Australia and graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce, and begun her career in the world of finances. Her jobs took her from Singapore to New York to London with vast travels in between.
In 2002, she moved to Geneva and started a family. After her second child, a friend recommend Pilates as that is what all the superstars do after giving birth! She was captivated from the first class, and was puzzled how some exercises looked so easy and yet were so difficult. After many years of practising Pilates, she begun to be frustrated as her teachers could not explain to her certain questions she had about Pilates. She then decided to study Pilates to better understand it.
In 2007 she begun to study Pilates with Pilates Institute Geneve. Here she learnt the mechanics of Pilates, but there was a nagging feeling that there was more and that she was scratching only the surface. It was at this time that she encounted Iva Mazzoleni, and her feelings were confirmed - Pilates with its depth can go significantly further than just a series of exercises.
It was only then the real Pilates journey started. Lynn completed a 14 month mentorship under Iva which finally shined the light on the depth and ingenuity of Pilates. It was only during this mentorship that she connected her Body-Mind-Spirit. Lynn finally felt Pilates and she finally experienced the profoundness of the method. Not only did her Pilates change, but Pilates changed her way of being.
Thirsty for more, she continued with further workshops with Kathy Corey, Brett Howard and Anthony Lett and was exposed to the Pilates elder and 1st Generation Master teacher - Lolita San Miguel. Eventually she was accepted into 'Lolita's Pilates Master Mentorship Program' and obtained the diploma of the 2nd generation instructor.
Lolita passed on to her the 3 pillars of Joseph Pilates teachings - Perservence, Practice and Patience. She is motivated to share her knowledge with future teachers so they can to grasp the depth and magic of Pilates.
I welcome you into my home where I specialize in personalizing Pilates - offering a warm and intimate fully equipped studio.
One Pilates Studio is a refreshing alternative to other studios crammed with people. Instead, classes are limited to 3 students and as I work independently there are no distractions of other teachers or classes working in the same space.
I pride myself on a close relationship with you that will foster the most effective way to address your unique needs and goals.
A second, separate studio has been created dedicated for the formations and education of teachers. A professional space with the luxury of being calm and private.
