After graduating as a professional dancer from Lucia Marthas, the perfectionism that is rooted in the practice didn’t seem to fit her anymore. She took a step back from dancing but still having the passion for movement, she turned to yoga and pilates.
Following classes with pilates master trainer Ilka Recker, motivated her to finish her 100 hour pilates teacher training. Inspired by how transformational the practice was, she turned to yoga to combine the best of two worlds. Always a student, she finished her 200 hour hot yoga teacher training at Movements Yoga and her 500 hour vinyasa training at Svaha Yoga.
Araliya is our leading pilates teacher and because of her background in dance she is also taking the lead to take our barre classes to the next level.
She loves sharing her energy, enthusiasm and spirituality through her teachings. Her classes are fun, playful and challenging.
