What is pilates for me?
For me, Pilates is a journey on which I can constantly develop, help people, create new workshops and broaden and deepen teacher training program and meet a lot of interesting people. Pilates empowers me, grounds me in my body and makes me joyful, free and fulfilled.
“Experience the fulness of life in harmony of BODY, MIND AND SOUL through inspirational actions.”
Hobbies and leisure
Privately, I love to commune with nature and stay in sunny places, ride a bike in the mountains, bathe in ocean and recently I develop my skills in surfing. Travelling is a part of my soul open to explore interesting places, taste delicious and healthy food, get to know inspiring people and take new challenges. I love cooking and composing new flavor combinations. Making delicious, vital sweets for pysically active people brings me a lot of joy 🙂 I’m a dog lover, I have a tibetan terier, called Burbon.
