Paula Santos

Paula has always been passionate about exercise, teaching and people. In her home country of Brazil, Paula pursued her passion by becoming a Physical Education teacher. She works with kids, teens, and adults. Her long love of sports, including her favorite soccer, was an easy choice for coaching; but her love for all age groups came when she started personal training. A few years ago, Paula encountered PILATES. She has said, “this methodology completely changed my life, my body, and my mind”. She felt that she could connect more with herself and wanted to pass all that along to her clients. Paula finds great satisfaction in teaching youth and adults alike. She gleans from all her experiences to create a challenging Pilates class. Her belief is that you can always go a bit further, harder, longer, or deeper while respecting your limitations. Paula will always encourage and challenge people to achieve the best that they can be. She says “teaching Pilates for me is about helping people to improve the quality of their life”. It is helping them see that a mindset of I CAN DO THIS vs a mindset of I CAN’T that is a great reward to her. Paula believes that every class can and will help you achieve the next level of wellness…. Body, Mind, and Spirit. Teaching Pilates is contributing to a better, more active, and healthy world in Paula’s view. “Having flexibility, balance, mobility, strength, control, passion and a good mind – body connected is why I love to spread Pilates to the world”!
