“As a Pilates instructor with more than eleven years of experience, I have repeatedly witnessed people struggling with issues related to their bad body posture; in many of the cases, this is due to the lack of exercise or for not exercising properly.
According to my findings, this situation might have been avoided if they had learnt how to use their bodies wisely at an early age.
It is in this context where my idea of teaching Pilates to children was born.”
Susana is the founder of “Kids Pilates in Action” whose primary purpose is to create body posture awareness in children through the practice of Pilates, thereby helping to prevent body misalignments in adulthood.
Susana has got a solid dance background, and she started to practise Pilates to correct her posture issues; when she realised how useful this was for her, she decided to become an instructor to help others to get the same benefits from Pilates.
Susana truly believes that by giving attention to their bodies, people can accomplish both, their professional and personal goals more efficiently.
