I am a Certified Body Control Pilates™ Teacher, UK's leading professional body for Pilates Teachers and a Level 3 REP Pilates Matwork Instructor at different levels. I am fully qualified Level 4 Specialist in Lower Back Pain Exercise Instructor & Back4Good® Practitioner.
I also Design Pre and Post Natal Exercise Programmes and as an Exercise Referral Instructor I can help you to manage thorough an adequate exercise program some medical and musculo-skeletal conditions diagnosed by your GP or Health specialist, (i.e Osteoporosis, MS, Hip Replacements, Scoliosis)
I am personally interested in offering classes to people of all ages, from children to elderly as I am convinced that adequate exercise is key in helping everybody a better quality life.
I have always been interested in the relation between Body & Mind, which I explore in my career in Psychology and different performing art activities (mainly Dance and Theatre). For 10 years I also worked as a Gym Instructor helping people understand the importance of physical activity and general wellbeing.
Later on, due to the demands of caring for my 3 children I had a recurring upper back and neck problems, reason why I decided to explore the options to recover my wellbeing and rediscovered Pilates. I qualified and joined the Body Control Pilates Association ™ (BCPA) in January 2012 and attend relevant training regularly and since, it has made a long-lasting difference to my quality of everyday life.
