The Pilates method provided everything that was missing from her other fitness courses and she became completely immersed in the Pilates work. By the end of the first course, she transitioned to becoming a full time instructor of Pilates only. Emanuela continued her journey all the way through the Master Instructor program and is now a teacher trainer for the Peak Pilates program. Her mission is to guide her clients and students to improve their quality of life by optimizing their movement and alignment so that they may have access to their strongest and most efficient bodies yet.
