I’m a qualified Personal Trainer, Pilates Mat, Aerial Yoga and Massage Practioner. I love to help people to feel themselves again to be able to move freely and to enjoy life.


It is my pleasure to recommend the services of Ms. Leonie Knoetze (Ariella Studios).  I have been a client of Leonie’s for three years and her sports massage has significantly improved my ability to recover from injuries and my general wellbeing.  Leonie is extremely professional and qualified in a range of massage techniques; she gives her full attention to every client, every time. – Jennifer S


I want to send you a thank-you note to express my appreciation for your professional help. I went through a challenging time with back problems, but you made it easier. Since the fall from the roof, I ever wondered if I would get better from this pain in the lower back, my gluteus and hamstrings. ‘iesh’. Since that time I have had to go for physiotherapy treatment regularly. My paths crossed with you and I’m so thankful for people like you. I feel definitely much better since the beginning. I knew it is a process and everytime I just knew there was progress. Thank you so much for your thoroughness, friendliness and caring, and you were never in a hurry. You are professional and I am at peace with you.. My sincere thanks and appreciation and be blessed. Martin W
