I grew up in Italy surrounded by beauty. It was a daily feast for the senses! The beauty of Italy's nature, art and flavor fascinated me, engaged my senses and touched my soul. I started dancing to follow my natural desire to enjoy music and be a part of it.
From my first dance class I fell in love with the physics and the natural laws that govern the bio-mechanics of the body and the beauty that results from a body moving and honoring its innate purpose. Since then I made these subjects my everyday study in either dance, Yoga, Pilates, Feldenkrais classes or in bio-mechanics or physics books. The more I studied the more theories I found that pointed out beauty is perceived by our senses and expressed when we feel an entity in balance and harmony with nature.
My love for graceful and efficient movement in dance and my research on the connection between beauty and bio-mechanics led me to develop Be Bella Pilates. In my technique beauty is the result of three elements: alignment, grace and strength. Be Bella Pilates respects the natural design of the body creating a strong and functional core, lean and long muscles and effortless posture that gives a deep sense of well-being.
In 2011 I opened my studio at Ethos Collective Wellness. Located in the heart of Soho and known for its inviting and relaxing atmosphere, Ethos is an exclusive oasis in the city where women are invited to leave everything behind, relieve their tensions and dedicate time to their strength, beauty and wellbeing. In 2012 my classes at Ethos Collective were voted Best Pilates for Women in New York Magazine.
I love helping women discover the natural beauty and strength that emerges when they use their body in a way that honors its natural structure.
