Of all the things in life I am passionate about, Pilates is at the top of the list. A professional dancer at the age of 19, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. The only thing that was able to restore my strength, my flexibility and my mobility was Joe Pilates’ Classical Method. The start of that journey brought me to the realization that Pilates was not only a system of exercise, but also a healing art form and an ingenious way to maintain physical integrity and great health. Ever since then, I have dedicated myself to learning every aspect of Joe’s method. Having witnessed what Pilates has done for me, I am committed to sharing the method with others and helping them attain a deeper understanding of their own bodies.
