Naiza has spent her entire life keeping her body in motion, whether through sports, cheerleading or dancing. In 2013, she became a professional certified coach, sharing her passion with others. When health issues limited her mobility, Naiza turned to “movement” again to heal herself, and in 2015 she became a certified yoga instructor – again passing along her positive experiences to others. When she was first introduced to Pilates, Naiza recognized the added benefits this exercise offered its students, including the value of body awareness and self- confidence. Her philosophy is to take small steps towards great goals to navigate through the vulnerabilities found deep within the body. Naiza’s extraordinary energy and sense of humor enable her to deeply connect with her students, enabling them to bridge the gap between their minds and bodies through mindful engagement and movement.
A resident of Oviedo, Naiza is currently pursuing a Doctorate of Psychology, along with a degree in Kinesiology. She flows through this life as a mother to a human teenage boy and two four-legged old timers.
