About Me

I am a Full Certified STOTT Pilates Instructor and has been teaching and practicing Pilates since 2007. I started my journey in Manila, Philippines where I am originally from and trained under Vivian Zapanta. I was teaching at her licensed training facility for 5 years until my lust for travel led me to New Zealand. I wanted to explore the world and take my knowledge and passion for pilates with me. I landed a teaching job at Core Pilates Studio in Pukekohe, south of Auckland. I lived and worked in NZ for a year and thereafter, moved to Gothenburg, Sweden. When I arrived in 2013, I immediately started teaching at Pilates Complete and Stabilisera Wellness Studio. After a couple of years, I moved to Skåne and taught at 3 different studios.

When my first daughter was born in 2016, we decided to take a break and spend time together so we traveled to the US and Philippines for 6 months. We came back to Gothenburg in 2017 and has been teaching again since then.
