Effie practiced Pilates & Yoga for many years but she focused mainly on Pilates three years ago when she started working as a studio manager in a Pilates studio in Oud-West Amsterdam. Inspired from many skilled and talented teachers around her, she decided to enroll on the BASI (Body Arts & Science International) training to become a Pilates teacher herself.
Originally from Greece, she has been into fitness & sports for many years (playing basketball 10 years in a team in Northern Greece and 2 years in Athens) striving to get to the School of Physical Education & Sports Science. Life proofed differently as she had to live abroad and eventually changed her direction. She holds a BSc in Political Science, a MSc in Business Administration, and a Grad Certificate in Adult Training & Organizational Development. Effie is a recent certified BASI Mat Pilates teacher and she is currently studying Pilates on Equipment with the BASI Comprehensive Global training in Amsterdam.
Effie is a Pilates enthusiast and as such her goal in her classes is to pass her enthusiasm on how Pilates makes you strong and flexible, connects body and mind and makes you leave the class in harmony feeling as you had a special mindfulness moment!
