The love for movement started very early in my childhood. I got really excited using my body as a tool for articulation and expression, which led me to become an athlete and later on a professional dancer.
Being a professional dancer I understood the importance of being connected to my body, to listen and feel. I needed to learn how to take care of it, but at the same time to push myself to physical extremes.
It was only when I injured my ankle that I was exposed to pilates for the first time. It was definitely love at first sight! I spend months in the studio recovering and exploring my body in ways I didn’t know existed. I never actually felt better physically and got a better perspective of the human anatomy. Eventually I decided to do the Pilates education.
Pilates has become a platform to continue my research of the body’s articulation. It was a natural continuation from my career as a dancer. I feel it is a privilege as a pilates instructor to be able to help people connect to their bodies. Through movement they discover motions and emotions that they have never known. They connect to places in their body that carries memories, traumas, injuries, emotions and habits.
It’s a fascinating and rewarding journey if one manages to surrender to it.
