Pilates Instructor and Massage Therapist
Luana has a passion for exploring different forms of movement and is originally from Brazil where she worked as a Physiotherapist and Pilates Instructor. Then deciding to travel extensively she has completed Yoga Teacher Training, various massage workshops and gained valuable work experience along the way. With her background as a physiotherapist, Luana can work with clients to recover from and prevent injuries while combining massage and Reiki skills to release tension in the body and promote deep relaxation.
Her vast experience teaching both Yoga and Pilates (mat and reformer) complements her treatments in terms of how the body works and responds to regular stretching, strengthening, postural awareness and mindfulness.
