Yoga&Pilates changed my world.
I want to help you change yours.
Yoga, Pilates, Meditation with me.
The combination of training, personal experience, and patience has made me understand and appreciate my body and its limitations. I find Pilates, especially the Polestar Pilates Method, a soft approach. It offers a new way of rehabilitation, building strength and core stability, combining it with good understating of breathwork, keeping me healthy and free from pain.
My obsession and attention to correct alignment gives perfect support and a safe environment which all levels of clients require. I have a deep passion, compassion and understanding for spine pathology, I understand your pain, I have been there and my aim is for my clients to leave the sessions with the sensation of feeling taller, stronger, energized and of course pain-free. Trained with Polestar Pilates International on Mat and Equipment Pilates and past working experiences with Complete- Physio and Vanbrugh, I have gained a deep understanding of injuries and working with people towards their rehabilitation programme. I work in Collaboration with, Ann De Vos At Pilates Living N16 where I tailor make private and semi private sessions.
I always dreamed of being a ballerina, but could not attend classes as a child, so did not develop the body.
I turned my attention towards finding another passion, leading me on this journey.
For 22 years, I was a successful Hairstylist. I loved it, I love to cut hair, being around people, sharing life experiences, but what I love the most is to make people smile and happy.
I started practicing Yoga in 2011, initially as a physical exercise, as most do. But soon after, I embarked on Yoga’s spiritual path, enrolling on a Mindfulness course and Vipassana meditation retreat, to find space and peace within myself.
Those retreats and teachings have become annual pursuits and have not just changed my way of living, but my way of being. I fell in love with Yoga’s philosophy, awakening in a balanced and harmonious state.
I completed my Yoga 300hrs Teacher Training in India in 2016 with Kanga Yoga and in 2020 I qualified as a Meditation Teacher. My teaching incorporates Iyengar, Sivananda and Ashtanga Yoga, adapting those styles to all clients levels. I often include Pranayama and Meditation techniques in my sessions, which I believe helps people to deeply connect spiritually with themselves, reaching the root of all our issues and insecurities.
I have lived all my life with chronic back pain, but in 2017 due to a spine injury, something deeper happened, I was in a lot of pain and this severely limited any form of movement I could do for more than a year. I felt stuck, without a way out. Something needed to change to enable me to move forward in life. So I decided to deepen my practice and train with Polestar Pilates International as a level 3 Mat and clinical Pilates and also Reformer Pilates training with Heartcore Pilates London.
We all search for a purpose in life, and I was searching for happiness and perfection.
Happiness is an inward journey, a never-ending path, that only you can choose to begin walking. Your journey towards a better way of life begin today, whether you are looking for a professional or personal support.
