About Mariela and Emma

Mariela's Profile pic

Mariela has a long career in bodywork and movement. Originally trained as a dancer, she then went on to train as a pilates teacher with the UK Pilates Foundation and has been working as such for the last 15 years. Her particular interest on how the body deeply connects and flows led her to discover the Antigym Method. Practising Antigym allowed Mariela to develop her understanding of the body-mind connection but also brought her great benefits, such us: Better alignment and freedom of movement. She is now very passionately sharing this unique and transformative method with her students.


Emma has been teaching pilates for 6 years and Feldenkrais for the last 2 years. Mariela was one of her pilates teachers and a great influence. From the very beginning of her teaching career it came naturally to respect the brain-body’s innate knowledge, instead of imposing a “correct’ way of movement from the outside.

The way the Feldenkrais Method empowers the students to explore their own bodies, as a process of improving, changing and aligning, and the fact that this proves to be extremely effective, is what Emma finds fascinating when teaching Feldenkrais.
