My teaching style makes people feel welcome, included, respected and safe.

My movement-based approach inspires my students by empowering them to notice how their energy levels, breath quality and emotions can flow when they use their bodies in specific ways. With practice, they learn the power of movement and breathwork to achieve positive mental and emotional states through my “Movement for Stress Relief” toolset. 


Born in Italy, but now living in London, I started studying Ballet when I was 4 years old and went on to become a freelance professional in Contemporary Dance. I achieved an MA in Dance Performance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire and a doctorate in Cultural Heritage, and trained in Community Dance, which has been a significant influence on how I have developed my teaching around inclusivity. 


My 30 year journey through movement has enabled me to develop a practice, which also draws on wisdom from Yin Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Pilates, Barre and Somatics, to alleviate stress, fear, anxiety, and soothe the nervous system. 

I offer people a unique perspective on how moving mindfully with grace and becoming aware of our habitual holding patterns can help break the stress loop we are often stuck-in and allow our bodies to be more available, free of tension, feel empowered and more grounded
