Gizella has been passionate about dance since she was four years old and trained at the University of Culture, St Petersburg. She came to London to study and become a Pilates teacher. Gizella discovered how to look after the joints, have a correct posture and how to stretch correctly. In turn, she enjoys teaching other people how to strengthen and protect their bodies so that they can have more freedom of movement. She has recently graduated from physiotherapy studies. The union of both techniques, Pilates and physiotherapy, greatly benefits her understanding of injuries which transpires through her teaching in both modalities: Pilates and GYROTONIC®.
