Why I love teaching
What I love about pilates is the mix between strength, coordination and stretching. The continues focus on a controlled movement and breath, makes it a unique opportunity to get deeply in contact with ones body, becoming more and more aware of it, the way it moves and the way it feels. After each session I feel not only stronger, straighter, but also balanced and relaxed. All of this brought me to deepen my knowledge of this method, studying it with the best source possible: Joseph Pilates’ protégée Romana Kryzanowska and her daughter Sari Mejia, and to spread the method I love. The possibility to support people feel better and look better trough tailored trainings. Their positive feedback of painless bodies motivate me to continue and gives me a lot joy.
Since my childhood sports played a key role in my life. I started at an early age with gymnastics and later with swimming at a competitive level. I studied law at the Universitàdegli Studi di Genova and graduated in 2002.
I discovered the Pilates method in 2003. After taking a few lessons, my interest turned into a strong passion, to the point that I decided to become a Pilates trainer in 2006. I obtained my first qualification in Zurich with Pilates Academy of Switzerland where I successfully completed a 700-hour training program.
Between 2006 and 2009 I worked as a Pilates trainer in Zurich, while periodically attending seminars across Europe to further refine my expertise. During this period I got in contact with some senior trainers from True Pilates New York, Romana Kryzanowska’s Pilates school. Romana is a world renowned protègèof Joseph H. Pilates. I was so thrilled by the quality of the classical Pilates method that in 2009 I decided to undertake a second certification with True Pilates New York.This time, I trained in Den Haag under the supervision of Marjorie Orion and in Romana’s True Pilates school in New York. I obtained my second certification in 2011 and I am certified to teach all levels on all apparatus. I am fluent in Italian, English and German.
