Hi, My name is Celeste Venter.
I am a horsewoman, Pilates instructor, Lyno practitioner, mother, wife and entrepreneur.
Here is my journey into Pilates.
I started doing Pilates in 2006 after postural collapse and muscular imbalance caused me such pain that I could barely put one foot in front of the other and couldn’t ride my horse any more.
I fell in love with Pilates! Within in 6 months my pain was gone, my body was balanced and my horse riding was pain-free again.
Pilates changed me.
It challenged me in more ways than just physically.
It is a call to consciousness.
It demanded mindfulness and total awareness as I was doing the movements … really feeling the depth of every exercise and muscle moving.
It gave me a strong and able body, but it also grew my mind and my ability to focus with intention.
Being mindful flowed through into my daily live and I still live by it.
I became passionate about Pilates and knew that this was a career I would follow one day. It took years before my dream became reality.
I started my journey in the fitness world by first completing my Personal Training Certificate through Trifocus Fitness Academy.
I then successfully completed the Comprehensive Teacher Training Certification with BASI Pilates in 2016. I have been teaching Pilates full time since then.
How the Lyno Method became a part of my movement practice.
In 2016 a client introduced me to the Lyno Method. I had been looking for ways to help my clients progress faster in their training, and also for ways to help with injuries and chronic pain.
The Lyno Method is an amazing new method of treating sports injuries, pain, mobility issues and just generally helping the body perform better.
Lyno and Pilates compliment each other perfectly.
As a result, I enrolled and completed the Lyno Method training at the end of 2017.
The combination of Pilates and Lyno is to the benefit of each and every client we help.
I am now able to help my clients maintain a more balanced, pain free body,
improving their ability to perform daily activities,
see better results from their Pilates sessions,
as well improve their sports performance.
I launched KinetiCore in November of 2018 in order to offer both Pilates and the Lyno Method under one roof.

Hi, My name is Carrie Knight.
I am an avid animal lover with dogs and elephants as my definite favorites. Whenever I have the opportunity and time I enjoy volunteering at local shelters, as well as visiting nearby wildlife sanctuaries. My other favorite pastimes include; art, reading and visiting the theatre. In the art world I enjoy painting, mosaics, sewing, knitting, tattoos and doing Cosplay. I find it fulfilling to be creative and just explore the beauty and boundlessness of art.
Most importantly I am a passionate Pilates instructor.
Pilates, to me, is also art. Pilates is creative, in the sense of how one is able to move, and through the movement, create a beautifully fluid moving body.
Pilates when practiced repeatedly, becomes art in motion.
Beautifully executed Pilates allows you to feel like you are simply flowing from one movement to the next…
This leads me to tell you where my Pilates journey started.
I was diagnosed with Scoliosis in 2002, I was in grade 9 at the time. By 2010 my Scoliosis progressed extensively and surgery had to be done which involved spinal fusion and rod placement into the thoracic spine. In 2010 I also completed my BBA degree in Marketing Communications through IMM. 2010 was truly a life changing year for me.
I’ve always led a very active lifestyle that included Muay Thai and Kickboxing. Sadly though, after my spinal fusion, any contact sport was no longer an option for me.
I was advised by my Doctors and Healthcare Providers to start doing Pilates. Pilates would gently help me with my rehabilitation after my spinal fusion, as well as strengthen my core and my back.
Pilates provided me with a low impact, full body movement practice to ensure my entire body, but specifically my spine, remained healthy.
Experiencing the results first hand for myself, post my spinal surgery, lit a fire up inside me.
If Pilates can do this for me?
How much more can it do for others?
The experience and understanding of Pilates made me realize that this is how I can help others achieve the same excellent life changing health benefits as I did.
I enrolled and completed my first Pilates course in 2018 through HFPA. In 2019 I took a very big leap of faith and courage. I enrolled for the BASI Comprehensive Teachers Training Course, while still working full time as a Key Account Manager and Executive PA.
This posed its own challenges juggling a full time career and at the same time changing direction completely by studying Pilates.
There were days when I thought……How will I ever do this?
After completing the modules, I took a courageous step, leapt even farther with sheer faith, as I left my full-time career and became a full-time Pilates Instructor at Kineticore in September 2019.
It was quite the thrill!!
The rewards of being a Pilates instructor are endless.
To see people walk in, in pain and discomfort when they start.
Then over time, session by session, see them walk tall, stand up from a chair,
to lift their arms above their heads,
to be pain free and able to live a better quality of life is truly what I live for every day.
Pilates is truly for everyone.
It’s a life changing method of movement and training.
Everyone can and should do Pilates.
