Julia has always been motivated to stay active and played many sports throughout her life. She was first introduced to Pilates when she was a Communications university student in London. However, it was only after having children that her interest and passion in functional movement and physical fitness greatly developed. In no time, she decided to quit the desk-bound corporate world to pursue her passion.

Along the path towards becoming a certified instructor, Julia developed a greater understanding and appreciation of the complexity of human anatomy. In addition, she experienced first-hand, the positive impact of Pilates physically, emotionally and mentally.

Guided by the mantra "Do what you love and love what you do", Julia is keen to share her love and knowledge of Pilates with everyone and finds great joy and satisfaction when she sees her clients' bodies and quality of life enhanced through Pilates.

Julia is a Pilates Academy International® Certified Instructor and her classes are dynamic and challenging. Proper technique and form are essential in Pilates exercises and she will ensure you receive a safe and effective workout with maximum benefit.
