Pilates has become my way of life, which has allowed me to strengthen my center and my stability more and more to keep me in better shape, especially after having the joy of having a child. In fact, I can honestly say having had a body already well trained, allowed me to carry on a brilliant pregnancy. Which allowed me to recover in a very short time my previous physical form.
I discovered Pilates in 2008 as a pupil, intrigued by how ‘celebrities’ around the world were speaking well of it. So in 2009 I decided to train at the school of Power Pilates NY in Verona. They teach the classic (original) method developed by Josef H. Pilates over 90 years ago.
The training immediately gave me that preparation that I required to teach in the most effective and successful way. In 2009 I started teaching Group Courses with the Comprehensive System I, II, III. I also trained Pilates using the apparatus equipment, which I successfully completed in 2011. These tools are now considered more effective than training with a personal trainer. I now instruct both individuals and groups of all levels using mat or personal apparatus.
Passionate about Pilates
I have always been an all-round health fanatic and totally passionate about movement. I started at an early age with skis, putting them on my feet at the age of three. Then continued with propaedeutic ballet at the age of six followed by artistic gymnastics until the age ten. I continued with ballet from the age of eleven to eighteen. These two activities gave me excellent physical control and good posture, particularly facilitating the learning of the Pilates method. A method that originated as a specific therapy for professional dancers who had suffered joint injuries from too much load and work.
Today, I find myself doing all kinds of physical activities every day, from running, cycling, rock climbing, ski mountaineering, hiking and swimming. I have completed two IANTD diving certificates and have participated in several ski mountaineering races and competitions. I also participated in a group triathlon and qualified in 2nd place.
Qualified and accredited
I am a qualified and accredited Pilates teacher with the highest qualifications, 3 levels of CORE MATWORK I, II, III (i.e. Beginner, intermediate and advanced). And 3 levels of SYSTEM TRAINING I, II, III, which includes Pilates on equipment. Such as the Wunda Chair, Reformer, Cadillac, Tower, Ladder Barrel, Spine corrector and Small barrel.

I regularly attend international seminars and workshops to keep my training and preparation for teaching. I believe that you never stop learning and that to be a good teacher you need to practice a lot on yourself. My favourite teacher is Kim Reis from Portland Oregon in the USA. With her, in addition to practicing Pilates, I have discovered the MELT technique that releases the body from contractures in a really effective way.
I have the training and confidence to teach groups of up to 25 – 30 people. And one-to-one classes or classes in pairs. Personalised work is always the most effective!
When I started teaching Pilates, I wanted to make sure that the class had a limited number of participants to allow me to follow the best workout for each participant. As every body is different the sessions are tailored to consider each person’s needs. Pilates is an exclusive method aimed at each person individually. I want my clients to be individuals first, not just numbers!
I have a real passion and belief in the sense of well-being that Pilates can give, and I look forward to sharing my enthusiasm with you.
