Italian based in Paris, I graduated in Chinese at Cà Foscari University in Venice. After dedicating many years to Languages ​​and Cultures of East Asia, I realized that this path was not for me. The movement, the stage and the body were my passion. Following this feeling, I was admitted to the National Academy of Dramatic Art Paolo Grassi in Milan, where I graduated as a professional actress. Over the years, I have played in many projects, especially in performance and contemporary music...and it was during one of these projects that I experienced Pilates. I joined the Balanced Body University and became a certified Pilates teacher in Matwork and all Apparatus. I then met James d'Silva: I had the chance and privilege to follow him in his Garuda teacher trainings, and explore directly to the source this incredibly innovative and inspiring method. Today, practicing Garuda and sharing it with my students is my greatest happiness. I like: reading, horseback riding, trekking with my dog

“The beauty of the Garuda Method is it can be applied to a whole range of people - the professional athlete, the dancer or to those who have rarely exercised in their life.”Elizabeth Conway
