A Classically-trained pilates instructor, Melania originally certified with the The Pilates Academy of Switzerland in Zurich in 2006 and subsequently with Power Pilates in 2007. She furthered her pilates training by travelling extensively attending hundreds of hours of continuing education which also led her to participate in the Romana’s Pilates teacher training programme in Milan and New York and Jay Grimes’ The Work at Vintage Pilates in Los Angeles, CA. Other teachers, she had the honour to learn from included the whole Vintage Pilates “crew”, MeJo Wiggin, Dorothee Vanderwalle and Shari Berkowitz.
Passionate about human movement and physiology and always eager to deepen her knowledge, Melania has started her certification in the ELDOA method, an innovative form of exercise developed by osteopath Dr. Guy Voyer.
A competitive swimmer in her youth, Melania still trains and competes avidly in masters swimming.
She looks forward to sharing her enthusiasm for exercise with Play Pilates clients, and contributing to the achievement of their fitness goals.
