The Studio
The newly renovated studio is situated in a lovely 1920’s property edging the center of Haren. The studio’s modern, professional interior is balanced with the intimacy and tranquility of the surrounding garden and features a waiting area with coffee bar, a group mat room, a smaller group reformer room, two changing rooms, and a shower and toilet facility. The studio is equipped with a full line of STOTT PILATES equipment and offers group and personal training as well as instructor training certification.

Instructor Trainer
Marelize is from the Cape, South Africa. She completed her education in classical ballet, fine art and design. An injury brought her to Pilates and she certified in STOTT PILATES Matwork in Cape Town. Marelize opened the first pilates studios in Stellenbosch and Durbanville (South Africa) and in 2003 she brought the relatively unknown pilates method to Groningen, Netherlands. She founded Precision Pilates in 2005 and was awarded the STOTT PILATES Full Certificate that same year. Precision Pilates was the first fully equipped and dedicated pilates studio in the north of the country. In 2006 Marelize was invited to become a STOTT PILATES Instructor Trainer. Marelize is dedicated to Pilates and enjoys teaching her clients and students. She teaches and examines prospective pilates teachers in the Netherlands and abroad.

Getting There
The studio is within walking distance from Haren Station, which has a direct link to Schiphol Amsterdam Airport.   You can search on for the most updated times of trains.  By bus from Groningen Station: look for CityBus line 22 at the Transferium in Haren, and return from bus stop C at the Central bus Station in Groningen.  If you can read a bit of Dutch, look on for the bus stop schedules and times. The closest bus stop to the studio is called Haren Transferium, located 2 minutes walk from the studio on Nesciolaan.

You are not obliged to write (and pay for) two exams if you are planning to take both courses. You may choose to wait until completion of the second course to write your exam (a combined Matwork and Reformer exam). If you prefer to pause between courses, you may choose to take an exam to become certified in Matwork only, and another exam (a combined Matwork and Reformer exam) after completing the second course to become certified in Reformer work. In this case two exam fees would apply.
