I have always been very athletic and tried many different types sports: field hockey, fitness, yoga, capoeira, rowing, swimming and sailing. Then I discovered Pilates in 2012 - and it was love at first sight.
I started practicing Pilates after a recommendation by a physiotherapist whom I consulted due to continuous lower back pains.
Pilates turned out to be the solution to my back issues, and I was eager to learn more and more about Pilates and the human body.
In 2014 I graduated from the Polestar Mat Instructor training and started teaching Mat classes at The Movement Practice in Amsterdam.
In parallel I commenced the Polestar Studio training and started teaching using equipment like the Reformer, Trapeze Table, Chair, Ladder Barrel, Spine Corrector and props.
Since November 2015 I am Certified Polestar® Instructor for both Mat and Studio classes.
