Eva started training Ballet, Jazz and Modern Dance in Barcelona, when she was 6 years old, she knew it was her destiny. During a Ballet class at 16 years of age she had her first injury and several very similar ones after that. She found a Pilates center in Barcelona called "Body Control" and started with that, (pretty unknown technique at that time), to work on her flexibility, balance and strength. Since then, more than 20 years ago, she got hooked on Pilates.
Eva kept on dancing for many more years and Pilates was always her main form of work out as it was keeping her strong, flexible, lean and injury-free. Her career took her to travel all over the world and as she kept on dancing she kept on training Pilates and all kinds of disciplines, like Yoga, Aerobics, Body-Building, Water exercise, Steps, Barre, Belly dancing, Zumba,etc. Eva received her first Fitness certification at 19 years old and since then, she never stops studying.
"I'm a lover of creating movement to help others to feel better, to look better and to get their goals stress free. Pilates is my first choice to be able to put all my knowledge together to accomplish all of this, as aloud me to be creative in an effective and safe work out discipline."
