Brazilian-born Cesar has always been passionate about health, fitness and body-mind exercise.
A former International First Class Flight Attendant for Qantas Airways, he started out teaching Ashtanga Yoga, but after suffering a back injury in 2013, he saw first-hand how powerful Pilates can be for rehabilitation and injury prevention. He says, Pilates was ‘the one and only exercise method’ that effectively resolved his back pain. It guided him towards becoming an instructor.
He went on to complete his Mat Pilates and Equipment accreditation and completed a Comprehensive Pilates Instructor Training Program in Sydney, Australia.
Cesar is extremely passionate about helping other people reap the many benefits of Pilates, which comes across in his teaching style. His priority is postural strength and alignment, control and breathing, plus precision in the body and the movements, control and breathing.
Alongside his group classes, Cesar teaches Pilates to people with Multiple Sclerosis through the MS Society, which he finds to be extremely rewarding.
In addition to his Pilates qualifications, Cesar has a Post Graduate degree in Health Sciences, a Nutrition Health Coaching qualification, Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training, Diploma in Exercise Referral and is a qualified Yoga teacher.
