Bio:

Hi, my name is Paola and I originally come from Italy. I am a qualified Polestar Pilates teacher combining my practice with Yoga and Meditation. I spent 18 years of my life working in the Fashion and Beauty industry but after a back injury, bad postural alignment and being in a lot of pain (that had severely limited the kind of movements I could do), I realised that something needed to change to enable me to move forward in life. I started practicing Yoga in 2011, initially as a physical exercise. Soon after, I enrolled in a Yoga Teacher Training, Mindfulness course and Vipassana meditation retreat, to find space and peace within myself.

In 2017 I decided to deepen my practice and train with Polestar Pilates as a mat, and later as Clinical Pilates teacher. This was a real eye opener for me and has extended the knowledge and experience I can offer to clients. The combination of training and personal experience has made me understand and appreciate my body and its limitations. I am passionate about what I do and what I love the most is to truly listen to people and help them to achieve their goals.

My life is all about having the perfect balance. When I am not teaching or practicing, I love to spend my time travelling to tropical Islands (when we can), going for long walks with good friends, having deep conversations about life, listening to classical music and chilling with a good movie and even better chocolate.

An interesting fact about you no one would know (until now):
I have a huge birthmark made of freckles from my back to my left side of my body that looks like a map. I always wondered what country it could be.
