The Pilates method changed my life

I was born with hip dysplasia. When I was a baby, I was treated by having my legs bound together for months.

Hip dysplasia basically means my hips developed in such a way that they’re more likely to dislocate. The binding treatment did help, but it left my hips weak. That was only the beginning of an unpleasant journey. Aged 14 I was diagnosed with scoliosis (side curvature of the spine). Aged 16 I started experiencing severe leg pain. At the time, I was playing in a band and Ballroom Dancing in Hungary. Normal teenage stuff, but I felt different from my friends because I was constantly trying to beat the pain. I wasn’t able to sit or stand for long, which made studying much harder. My body felt like a cage.

The doctors thought it was just muscle spasms so they gave me strong painkillers. Finally, after repeated visits to the hospital, they noticed bulging discs. I had nine months of physiotherapy and was okay for a time. Then when I was 20 the pain came back. I couldn’t accept that I would have to live like this forever. I knew there had to be something other than physiotherapy that could help. That’s when I discovered Pilates. I came across Spiral Stabilisation and Yamuna Body Rolling later on when I moved to London.

These techniques have changed my life. I used to think I was a victim, having to exercise every day. Now I realise that’s just how the body works. It needs maintenance.

With physiotherapy it took me almost a year to deal with my pain. Now when I have a flare up it takes two weeks. Despite the issues I was born with, I’ve been able to teach, train 4-5 times a week and dance competitively for over 10 years. I used to suffer constant pain. Now I have the power to help myself. It was a long journey for me, but it needn’t be for you. With my guidance, these techniques can help you live your life to the full.

Treating the body as a whole

I’ve been helping people awaken and reconnect with their bodies for the past 15 years. I love being able to share the tools you need to live happily and healthily. I’m a fully qualified Pilates teacher, and a certified Spiral Stabilisation and Yamuna Body Rolling practitioner.

These techniques are based on decompression and lengthening.

 

They work together to sustainably treat the body as a whole, and help you recover from lifestyle-related compression. You can also use them to warm up or cool down before or after any kind of workout. The result? You can achieve your fitness goals, prevent pain and injury, and be your best in every area of life. These potent self-healing tools are suitable for all ages and abilities.

Classical Pilates

Pilates is more than stretching or toning. Its positive effects on the body are supposed to go beyond the “feel good exercise”. Pilates teaches you how to synchronise all your muscles so they work together for a uniformly strong body. Each carefully constructed piece of equipment is there to revive the body through natural movement. Pilates is about self empowerment for a lifetime.  

Spiral Stabilisation

Revolutionary core strengthening exercise technique for back pain treatment. Using the specially designed Spiral Stabilisation straps and poles, you can save your posture, prevent injuries and improve conditioning wherever you go. They work by activating muscle chains that create traction in the joints to eliminate imbalances. Spiral is very effective for recovery after surgery and giving birth. You can expect faster results than with gym routines or physiotherapy. 

Yamuna Body Rolling

Who says you have to become immobile as you get older? Yamuna Body Rolling is a unique technique that uses special balls with your own body weight to work deeply on your anatomy. Creating optimum space throughout the body will restore fuller range of motion in all joints and release tension. Direct bone stimulation is what makes YBR stand out from the crowd. It feels like a full-body massage. Work on yourself at home, at work or on holiday.
