Professional expertise: Classical mat and Reformer Pilates teacher, pre and post-natal specialist, Body Control Pilates master matwork teacher, Back for Good ® and Back Care® practitioner
Currently based in London, Chiara teaches Pilates classes for all levels (from beginners to advanced). She discovered Pilates eight years ago alongside her professional dance training at Trinity Laban College of Music and Dance. Initially approached as rehabilitation and injury-prevention, it soon enabled her to find deeper connection, strength and flexibility, within her own body. Wishing to assist and help others to cultivate their body awareness, Chiara qualified as Body Control Pilates® Teacher in 2014. Since then, she has been continuing her professional development whilst teaching private and group matwork classes in UK and abroad. Particularly informed by her teaching experience at a buddhist monastery, Chiara likes encouraging relaxation and awareness through a mindful approach to movement, believing that “a thoughtful way of moving can also inspire a mindful way of living”. Still focusing on Pilates’ traditional principles – correct alignment, breathing, and core stability – her classes are naturally influenced by her dance background, integrating flow, elegance and precision.
