My story
Hi, I'm Ana!

I love walking, cycling, hiking and Yoga. Although I believe that all types of movement are great for you, I must admit I never set foot in a gym.
 
I love slow, mindful movement and I am obsessed with posture and alignment. I am not concerned about how a body looks but about how it feels. 
 
Before becoming a  Coach, I spent 20 years working in the hospitality industry and 6 years in an office. 
 
I spent most of my 20's suffering from back pain and began my 30s with knee pain. Needless to say, I felt like 100 years old. Plus, not being able to go on that hike or having to stay in bed during my holidays was just unbearable.
 
I became interested and then trained in different types of Yoga, Pilates, Science of Stretching and Myofascial Movement, to strengthen my body and learn how to move without pain.
 
I'm now 5 years pain-free and I chose to be a coach and help others feel the same.
