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 give perfect support and the 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, energised and of course pain-free. Based in Central London, I work in Collaboration with, Complete-Pilates and Vanbrugh Physio, where you can book your private Clinical and Fitness Pilates sessions, or online with BodyCorporate and TheOfficeYogaCompany, where I tailor-made corporate group classes and Pilates for injuries. My flexible approach allows you to adjust and adapt your timetable to your personal needs. I cover Central, North, East London, Tower Hamlets, Hackney, Bow, for your personal private sessions.

I always dreamed of being a ballerina, but could not attend classes as a child, so did not develop the body: the flexibility or anatomy.

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 practising 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 pathology 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 as a level 2 Mat and Reformer Pilates training with Heartcore London, I have recently begun and chosen again Polestar Pilates for my clinical Pilates training.

We all search for a purpose in life, and I was searching for happiness and perfection, I was far from finding what I was looking for, as I was far from understanding that every human being is perfect just the way they are.

 

Happiness is an inward journey, a never-ending path, that only you can choose to begin walking.
