Barbara began her commitment to sound mind-body fitness over two decades ago when she enrolled in the famed Classical Ballet Academy Cosi-Stefanescu. Shortly after graduating, she joined the Academy’s touring company and began her professional career as a dancer. During this collaboration with the touring company, both in Italy and abroad, Barbara began observing and integrating various fitness regimens she was exposed to throughout the world into her personal philosophy of genuine mental and physical health.
With the same passion and natural gifts that permitted her to attain international success as a professional dancer and choreographer, Barbara committed herself to the rigorous training required in order to become a Certified Pilates Instructor from CovaTech Pilates School in Milan, Italy. Additionally, Barbara completed intense training programs in Reboundolgy (focusing on aerobic activity) and CARDIOLATES, the state of the art technique that unifies the principles and methods of Pilates and Reboundology. She is, in fact, the first Italian Certified CARDIOLATES Instructor/Trainer.
All throughout, the same engine always drove Barbara’s efforts: learn how to help others live a fuller, healthier, more fulfilling life.
