1. WHO IS AIMEE CHALLIES?
I am a Garuda, Pilates & Yoga teacher from New Zeeland. Currently teaching in Paris.
2. WHAT IS YOUR LIFE MOTTO?
Be truthful, gentle & fearless. It is a Ghandi quote that my mother shared with me when I was younger. I always come back to these words.

Learning. To stay inquisitive about movement and teaching.
4. WHAT IS A BEAUTIFUL BODY TO YOU?
One that is confident and well looked after, in a holistic / healthy sense.
5. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GARUDA AND PILATES TO YOU?
I don’t like to differentiate as many training styles are evolving and there will always be common threads. Movement is movement!

PEBBLES PILATES one piece!!! One that stays on and in the right place – this is very important! And most of all is comfortable.
