Born in 1981 in Bologna, Italy, Elena moved to Dubai in 2015 with her husband and her two kids.
Elena started ballet when she was 3 years old and continued to dance until 2009 when she became pregnant for the first time. She started performing professionally as a contemporary dancer when she was 15 and was introduced to the Pilates discipline as part of her training. She was amazed at how Pilates developed her strength and flexibility and the positive effect it had on her chronic back pain.
In Dubai, the Pilates Academy gave her the opportunity to turn her passion into a career. Her mission is to provide people with the tools to improve their lives by raising their body awareness. Elena loves the precision of movement that the Pilates equipment affords creating a dance-like movement with the springs and straps that are reflected in the body. She enjoys working with clients to help them push through their limits of pain and control, helping them to gain freedom in their body.
