»I’m relatively young, but I’m also ancient. I start to look at my body as a possible book, that could open to spaces that written documents may not access.« – Faustin Linyekula
I’m a dance artist and Pilates instructor. To me, the body and its movements are teachers. My teaching is a journey in which I try to guide you inward to discover the incredible knowledge contained in your body and carry that back into your life. I won’t lie, the path includes meeting all the blockages on the way. I studied contemporary dance in SEAD (graduated in 2019, AT) and got my Pilates Teacher Diploma with BASI Pilates (Mat course, 2016). I’ve been teaching since 2016 and working as a dance artist since 2019.
The pelvis is the focus of my current work as a dance artist, which influences my teaching too. In the past year, I’ve been busy with movement research in which I explore ways of combining knowledge from subversive dance practices in which the pelvis is the protagonist (mainly Twerk, Belly dance, and Orly Portal Method) with pro-sex feminist and queer approaches.

Build control, core strength, balance, muscular endurance and flexibility in an intense Pilates class.
