“I don’t consider Pilates as just exercise but a complete body conditioning and balancing system that will make you feel refreshed and give you a sense of both physical and emotional well-being.
My classes focus on exercising the body as a whole: we work the muscles of the trunk, the arms and legs, in order to balance the workout and enhance the mind and body connection.
During the flow of the workout I educate students on the principles of core stability as well as the muscles that are responsible for balance; I will use visualisation techniques in order to enhance the experience and result”
