From her home town of Sao Paulo, Brazil, as a young adult Malu brought to North America not only a lifelong passion of all dance forms, but also her strong training in classical ballet and in a few other dance styles. While in Calgary, Canada, for twenty nine years, she maintained her passion for dance as she raised two children and worked as an office manager in a software company that she co-founded with her late husband. Even though she came to know about the Joseph Pilates method in Brazil, it was during her studies at the University of Calgary that she could experience the method, understand its concepts, and realize its results benefit everyone, not just dancers and professionals.
Now in College Station, Malu has taught ballet classes, became a certified yoga instructor, and completed her five hundred hours Pilates Teachers Training Certification. With a strong appetite for knowledge and a curious personality, Malu is continually learning and adapting her teaching style in order to provide inclusive, quality classes to her students in all areas and of all ages. She enjoys teaching, dancing, spending time with her kids and family. She likes to travel and to attend live performances as often as she can. For Malu, “life is beautiful.”
