Who We Are
It all started in 2004 when my wife and I decided to open our first wellness center named Integração (that means Integration) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Adriana with her passion for neuromuscular rehabilitation brings a special touch to her Pilates classes.
My passion for sports like cycling and rock climbing brought balance to our practice.
In 2015 we opened ADirection with the same concept .
Now we are glad to announce our new location. We are offering: private, semi-private and 4 people Pilates classes.
BSPT, Fully Certified Pilates Instructor
I completed my Bachelor in Physical Therapy in 1999. In sequence to that I dedicated 2 more years to complete a Post grad in Neurological Rehab. In 2004 I completed my Pilates Training (Mat, Equipment and Rehab)
In 2004 we opened our clinic /studio in Rio de Janeiro/Brazil where I treated a diverse population of individuals of all age groups with neurological, orthopaedic, surgical and other health issues.
Pilates gave me the extra tool to help my clients achieve their goals.
I take an individualized approach to postural analysis, addressing the client’s static and dynamic biomechanics. I enjoy sharing with others my energy, passion and my extensive experience with movement therapy.
I have extensive experience teaching Pilates to people with Parkinson’s , Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke and other neurological conditions.
Different from my husband I was never an athlete, but I do my best today doing Pilates, biking, climbing, Stand Up Paddle Boarding, walking and trying new sports.
BSPT, Fully Certified Pilates Instructor and Bike Fitter
I completed my Bachelor in Physical Therapy in 2003.
After graduating from Physiotherapy School I started several courses on Postural education such as: Podoposturology (feet analyses), Body Alignment, Clinical Pilates, Joint Stabilization (with David Magee).
I also was a Cat1 Cyclist for 10 years. Because of that and Physio background I decided to take Specialized’s Body Geometry Bike Fitting course.
