About Joanna

Joanna has been working in the audiovisual industry for over 25 years, and her position as studio manager has enabled her to acquire great listening and interpersonal skills.
After giving birth in 2007, she discovered Pilates, which she has been practicing assiduously ever since.
Since then, her passion for the practice has led her to pass on what has enabled her to find balance in both her professional and personal life.

In 2019, she decided to take a classical Pilates course at Centre 5 in order to teach this method herself.

Today, her goal is to be able to pass on this method with passion, benevolence and good humor, because "physical fitness is the prerequisite for happiness" (J.Pilates).
