I have been always trying to balance my life between my two true loves: Ballet and Law. Except for being a ballet teacher and pilates-yoga instructor, I am a lawyer specialising in Maritime Law. Twelve years ago when I was firstly introduced to pilates and yoga, I immediately fell in love and - needless to say - I never stopped practicing ever since.

My pilates and yoga studies in London and New York coupled with my ten years of teaching experience in Greece have honed my ability to identify imbalances in my students' bodies and encourage them to improve their skills and overcome any deficits with a main focus on breathing techniques, body balance and stretching. Moreover, my ballet background has always influenced my classes during which I share my passion for graceful movement and flow while paying particular attention to technique, alignment and control.
