Roxy 
Menzies (ENG)

Roxy Menzies, a Canadian-Jamaican based between Toronto and Istanbul has been described as a unique individual and teacher that infuses artistry, knowledge, soul and a 'fierce sense of humour' into her work with movement. She believes that we are happiest when we move and movement is not strictly physical. When we move our bodies, we move our minds, our hearts and our souls.

Roxy was a professional dancer of the African diaspora and contemporary dance and it was during her University years as a dance major that she began her Pilates journey. She began with Stott Pilates and was fortunate enough to travel and work around the world in beautiful studios learning from various schools of Pilates. It was in Turkey where she met Michael King of MK Pilates who reminded and inspired her to be creative with her classes. Today they work together in many capacities. Along the way, as a lover of movement with an insatiable curiosity she has become an instructor of GYROTONIC® and Yamuna® Body Rolling.

Roxy has taught dance and various movement modalities for the Canadian Educational system, professional dance companies and the artists of Cirque du Soleil. She has presented, guest taught or performed in London, New York, Paris, Beirut, Spain, China, Turkey and Thailand.

Roxy is thrilled to be a part of the YogaUni community and believes in supporting local brands and causes. You can find her around Istanbul teaching workshops or finding new ways to stretch on the crowded metro.

Roxy believes that movement is so important for everyBODY – regardless of your body type, age, height, weight or health there is movement for everyBODY. It is her belief that we are all healers and it is our purpose as instructors to provide the environment, tools and guidelines to aid individuals to grow into their full potential and live their lives fully!

    This class is for everyone! We'll focus on those neglected but oh so important areas of the body such as the hands and the feet as well as a 'butt burner' to aid in balance. This class is split into 3 parts so you can do the entire thing or if you're pressed for time pick and choose. This is a great class for the mature adult, anyone recovering from an old ankle, knee or hip injury and aids with improving balance.

    This class is a fun, challenging and creative adaptation of the Pilates Mat and Reformer repertoire. By utilizing the Pilates principles in a weight-bearing position you'll challenge your postural alignment, bones of the lower extremity and proprioception.

    For pilates enthusiasts with limited time. A practice for strength, and working on the balance between expansion and control.

    What may appear simple is in actuality a deep and controlled practice that sets you up for all levels of Pilates. This flexion-less class opens the front of the body while strengthening the side and back body. This is great for beginner's to obtain clarity for body placement and alignment as well as seasoned practitioners to go back to basics and review the foundations.
