Teaching Method

I am a hand-on teacher, my hands help a client to find the exact muscle to work on it.

I always encourage my clients to use all the principles and knowledge of Pilates in everyday life. I keep repeating that "the best Pilates is outside my studio" to keep them aware of their body 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

And of course, the best reward is a pain free body. When clients get rid of their pains, their eyes say it all...

  • "I must be right. Never an aspirin. Never injured a day in my life. The whole country, the whole world should be doing my exercises. They'd be happier."


  • "Contrology develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit."


  • "If your spine inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old. If it is completely flexible at 60, you are young."


  • "After 10 sessions you feel the difference. After 20 sessions you see the difference, and after 30 sessions you have a brand new body."
