Janneke has always been fascinated by movement and exercising. She strongly believes that everybody needs to move, whether it is by doing sports or by just taking the bike instead of a car, taking the stairs instead of the elevator. She fell in love with Pilates when due to a persistent injury, she was forced to find new and softer ways to work out. Immediately it became clear to her that Pilates is not just another sport. It's way more. Like finding back the connection with your body, a beautiful way to become stronger and leaner, getting rid of injuries, and understanding what fitness really means.
She did her training with Polestar Pilates. After founding a her former company in educational software, she decided to dedicate all her time to her true passion, movement, and founded Lux Pilates.
