Meet Linda

My Training

Certified in September 2007, I was the first Certified Callanetics™ Teacher in British Columbia and still one of only a handful in Canada.  I teach Callanetics™ classes in 5 community centres around Vancouver, as well as a privately hired space several times a week.  I taught Callanetics™ classes at The Arbutus Club (an exclusive private members club) for over 10 years.  In 2016, I was invited to LA to be a part of filming new Callanetics™ videos - the first release of official videos in 22 years.

Always in search of improving my knowledge and teaching, in 2017 I certified as a Pilates Instructor after completing over1000 apprenticeship hours. And in 2019, I certified as a Restorative Exercise Specialist™ through Nutritious Movement™.

Certified Callanetics™ Teacher

When I discovered Callanetics™ classes at The Edinburgh Callanetics™ Studio I was instantly hooked. After just 10 classes I lost 11½ inches.  It was the only exercise regime that I ever enjoyed and kept up with, and the results were great motivation.  I continued gong to classes for four years before moving to Vancouver in early 2006.

At the time, there were no Callanetics™ classes in Vancouver, nor anything like it.  I missed the classes so much and the toning effect on my body shape, I sought to become a Callanetics™ teacher myself.

My arms and legs feel stronger.  Linda is an excellent instructor.  She is very attentive, easy going, flexible, supportive and funny.  Regardless if you are a beginner or a veteran, she adapts to every skill level for each participant in the class.  I plan to continue Callanetics for another 5 + years! ~ Jen

Linda's positive energy makes the workout not only very effective but fun!  She has a gift for clear and effective communication describing movements so I continue to get the most benefit out of each exercise.  Great results also - I really seen a change in my body shape (legs in particular) over the last 3 years. ~ Jill

In times of Covid-19 Linda's Callanetics and Stretch classes are the highlights of my week.  Easy to do from home with her clear instructions and at the same time great exercise and fun. ~ Liz
