Joseph Pilates designed a system of mindful exercises using equipment, designed to improve physical strength, flexibility, and posture, and enhance mental awareness. “Contrology,” he said, “was conceived to limber and stretch muscles and ligaments so that your body will be as supple as that of a cat, not muscular like a brewery-truck horse or professional weight lifter you so much admire at the circus”.

LeCielStudio Story

Cecile Sasman found LeCielStudio Pilates Boutique in her home town, Stellenbosch, during April 2015. She is a wife, a mom of 2 boys and an enthusiastic entrepreneur, passionate about mindful health and movement. She is the business owner of LeCielStudio in Knysna, presenting Pilates sessions as a qualified BASI (Body Art Science International) Mat Pilates Instructor; and she is an independent Neolife director of FunYumTum with NeoLife. While growing up, her passion was doing Ballet, Pilates, various sports, and social & cultural activities. After completing her BA Humanities & Post Graduate Diploma in Marketing at Stellenbosch University, she moved to South Korea for 6 years, where she taught English. She enjoyed exploring other parts of South Korea; travelled to a few other countries; & attended Ballet & Salsa classes. During 2014, she attended the BASI Mat Pilates Instructors course in Seoul, & completed her exams in Camps Bay, Cape Town in March 2015. BASI is an International Pilates Company, priding itself in its various professional instructor courses. LeCielStudio grew greatly & is very proud to have had 4 years in Stellenbosch with a super awesome team (Jieun Geum, Dinah Dick, Edelweiss Gunter, Fran Siebrits, Lente Kritzinger, Fransunette van Niekerk and Melanie Rabe) presenting a variety of mindful modalities such as mat Pilates, Yoga and Barre. LeCielStudio also prides itself on working together with other health practitioners, creating an optimal service to the clients’ needs. Cecile and her family relocated to Knysna in 2018 which gave the opportunity to hand the reins to Fran Siebrits who started Little Studio, and for LeCielStudio to reopen in Knysna in April 2019. Cecile has decided welcomes you at her boutique studio, to join for regular mat and rhythm Pilates sessions, and to further explore a holistic approach in creating a healthier and happier You, with whole food nutrition, bio-degradable cleaning products, and organic vegan-friendly Skin Care, with the support of NeoLife International’s Scientific Advisory Board. LeCielStudio, being a boutique studio, where the personal connection and service has always be of utmost importance, Cecile has decided to reduce sessions to Tuesdays and Thursdays, as her main business focus is FunYumTum with NeoLife, where she is sharing info and helping people matching their Healthy DIET with WHOLE FOOD NUTRITION by Neolife with Products based in Nature and backed by Science for 62 years, help creating a Happier and Healthier World, and Ending the trend of chronic illness.

Cecile Sasman

LeCielStudio Owner / BASI Mat Pilates Instructor / Neolife Distributor
My aim is to help clients reach their optimal physical & mental healthy condition through the help of Pilates and Cellular Nutrition. As an ex dancer, I learnt the benefits of movement & the attention to detail to be helpful bringing a balance to all areas in one’s life. It is such a joy to work at & to find the harmony of mind, body & spirit.

The History behind the studio’s Name

LeCielStudio’s name started off as CielaPilates in 2015. “Ciela” has been one of Cecile’s nicknames since a young age. Cecile changed the name to “LeCielStudio” at the end of 2016 to create an umbrella name, to include more than only Pilates, but mindful movement and whole food nutrition. . “Le Ciel” is once again a play on her name but also means “the sky” in French – reminding us to aim for the highest sky, as you are capable of doing anything when you put your mind to it!
