Born and bred in Greece, moved to the UK in 1996 to study. After having lived in Wales for a while I adopted the place as my 2nd home.
Completed a Bsc(Hons) Early Childhood Studies in University of Wales Swansea (2001) and worked for 6 years in the area of special needs specialising in challenging behaviour and behaviour modification techniques.
I have also completed an instructor‘s training in contemporary Pilates and a diploma in holistic therapies in Swansea College. Took a career change in 2006 and went on to do a Bsc(Hons) Health and Exercise Science Sports Science & Medicine in Thames Valley University (2010) at which I carried out a research project on the effects of pilates exercises as a treatment of non-specific low back pain in collaboration with APPI.
