Pilates Journey

"In 10 sessions you'll feel the difference, in 20 you'll see the difference, in 30 you'll have a whole new body" Joseph Pilates. Pilates to me is a journey that you have to trust, it will lead you to your new body. Pilates can help you reach multiple goals, postural control, body awareness, injury healing and general body toning. It needs patience and integrity to its principles of centering, concentration, control, precision, breath and flow.

“Breathing is the first act of life and the last. Our very life depends on it.” Joseph Pilates



I started my business for passion and I consider myself a very lucky person. I am a mother of two great girls and I love exercising. Exercise to me means movement without too many labels or definitions, an active body is a healthy body."Change happens through movement, and movement heals" Joseph Pilates.  

Both my personal training sessions and my Pilates classes aim to teach my clients to love movement in first instance. I do that through my knowledge of anatomy and body mechanics but also through empathy and smiles. I don't believe in quick transformations or bikini bodies, I think that exercising should be a lifestyle not a trend or a life phase. We exercise to be able to move efficiently, to prevent injuries, to feel happier, to age better and much more.

Pilates is my passion, I've been teaching it for the past five years and I consider Pilates the basis of every movement I do. The principles of the Classic Pilates discipline apply to any movement and sport because, as Joseph Pilates says, "The Pilates Method teaches you to be in control of your body, and not at its mercy".
