Dancing, performing, singing: the possibilities of the human body have always been part of Barbara’s life.
While studying at a renowned performing arts academy in London, where 4/5 hours of dance classes a day was part of the curriculum, she pushed her body to the limits. With many injuries as a result of such a regime.
In Pilates she found a safe, effective method to realign her body, strengthen it and heal her injuries. The amazing results inspired her to pursue Pilates teacher training.
