Meet Nikita, the island’s Pilates girl – St. Lucia

WP_000763

Nikita Dosatile offers classical mat Pilates, specializing in realigning bones, fixing injuries and building total body strength along with improving flexibility.

What is your story? How did you become pilates instructor?

I’ve always been an athlete taking part in every sport there was at school even the ones i wasn’t very good at, and my first job as a fitness instructor and play maker suited my love for physical activity and my blithesome personality. It was there I met Niedra Gabriel, a second generation Pilates instructor from Joseph Pilates, who was the current Pilates and yoga instructor. It was in preparation for a fitness pageant that I realized that I was strong but also very inflexible, it was then that Niedra recommended taking her class. Since then I’ve fallen in love with Pilates. She realized that I had a particular knack for noticing alignment issues and presented me with the idea of teaching. Soon thereafter I underwent intensive one on one training with her completing the teacher’s training certification course from Mind 2 Body Studio. I have been certified since 2010 and have been operating as a Pilates instructor teaching at 5 star hotels, gyms, studio classes and home privates.

How popular is it in St Lucia?

Sadly not yet very popular. There are few instructors who work solely at specific hotels. I am presently the only freelance instructor and my goal is to increase its popularity. My vision is to soon open a major Pilates studio to provide full equipment classes, including the use of reformers and benches.

Why should people do pilates?

It improves posture, enhances balance, reduces aches and stiffness, increases flexibility and creates a longer, leaner, more toned body.

Marie Claire Frederick Saint Lucia model impressive career

Before starting her full-time modelling business, American-St Lucian model Marie Claire Frederick engaged in a number of exciting corporate professional careers. Ultimately, her entrepreneurial spirit prevailed – and Luciagel is happy to feature her as a self-made businesswoman.

Born in the US, she spent her childhood in New Village, Castries. She attended the Anglican School and spent her summers in Dennery.

Marie Claire’s list of careers is a long one.

Her original background is in PR and Journalism. She wrote press releases on behalf of Jeb Bush, former governor of Florida, for recipients of the Points of Light award.  She further worked as paralegal, dealing with foreclosures and workers’ compensation, and can still act as notary public! She also worked on immigration cases and is a keen sportswoman, including being a former gymnast.

She recognises moving from the corporate world to her own modelling business entailed tradeoffs, such as being prepared to accept lower pay in the short run. But since she describes fashion as her passion, the choice was obvious. Now she manages her own career and markets herself via social media and other channels.

Her modelling talent clearly made her choice easier. She prides herself with looking great in various outfits, from bridal to sportswear. Her work speaks for itself.

Cosmopolitan as her career may be, she is still proudly Saint Lucian and Caribbean: ‘My image was used in Unitransfer’s Haiti calendar. It holds special meaning as it couples my image with Creole language. One of my goals as a model is to work with companies that support my Caribbean cultural heritage, and the Unitransfer calendar image showcased that completely.’
