Hello! My name is Claudia, and I am originally from Italy. I have been in New Zealand for 11 years. I have completed my pilates qualification with BASI Pilates which is internationally recognised and I am also a Yoga teacher which helps to improve the quality of my pilates sessions. I have been practicing yoga and pilates for a few years and I love it! I used to like the idea of trying different studios and different styles of yoga and pilates and still today I love practicing and learning. I see a student like a capable and competent learner and teachers and students learn alongside each other. My goal is to facilitate a practice that allows people to move from the inside out, allowing a freedom in movement and the body at ease. I aim to teach a practice that empowers people and it instigates curiosity, exploration and creativity to reach freedom in mind, body and spirit. I aim to teach a practice for a fun, loving, explorative and nourishing experience in an inclusive and welcoming environment. Pilates improved my posture, alignment, flexibility, balance and strength. Pilates also helped me to recover from injuries and prevent more injuries. I offer a practice for all levels with plenty of variations for everyone, using props and creativity in the workouts I offer to my students. I am looking forward to meeting you all.
