“The body and the brain are completely interdependent. When skillfully working the muscles combined with oxygenating the body with the breath and further linking the conscious to the subconscious mind one is truly working within the realms of Contrology, leading to physical and spiritual harmony.”
For Elda, Pilates is a celebration of movement that we use to achieve well-being in body, mind and spirit. What started as a hobby, became her passion and then took over as her career. Not content with simply certifying as a Comprehensive Pilates Instructor, she is continually drawn to an ever-deeper study of anatomy and exercises.
Elda enjoys working with clients of all ages, abilities and experience. Seeing their transformation reaffirms her belief in Pilates’ benefits. Interacting with them leaves space for reciprocal growth.
“This development creates a positive energy we can both use to face change and to achieve our goals”.
Elda designs classes to create positive energy, improve flexibility, build strength and re-educate your body to move in a more precise, controlled and fluid way. The emphasis on the breath, alignment and developing a strong core will enable you to achieve well-being. You can increase intensity over time as your body adapts to the exercises.
