Feel like you have upgraded your body after Irena’s class
Deeper body, mind and spirit experience and connection, resulting in a stronger body

Polestar Pilates  Practitioner  and Solomon Yogalates Practitioner

As she was growing up, Irena was a budding artist and dancer, full of creative energy and spirit. Then she got derailed and ended up working in law. She loved her work, it opened and sharpened her mind, but it completely took over her life. By the end, her mind was in overdrive, she was anxious and her body, only in her mid twenties, was crumbling. She felt like she was in prison mentally, emotionally and physically and life was only meant to be beginning.
This is when she found Pilates and Yoga, which eventually helped her to rediscover her zest for life and feel that creative energy once more.
When she began to study pilates in more depth, she discovered that what she initially perceived as her physical weaknesses and limitations due to weight and body shape were often mental blocks. With the guidance of amazing teachers she met along the way, she started to release those blocks, eventually feeling the kind of freedom and ease in her body and movement that she had not felt since childhood.
As a result, Irena is passionate about exploring ways to help others to feel a similar sense of release, unlocking hidden movement potential and enhancing quality of movement, not just during pilates, but in everyday life and activities.
