Fernanda Costa is from South Brazil, she moved to the US after she graduated in Publicity and Advertising in 2005. She got here with a little English, a little money and a big heart to learn the American culture and language. She first spent three months in Arizona as a live in nanny, then she moved to San Diego in June 2006. Fernanda has been active her whole life, she did Muay-thai, cycling, yoga, and then she found Pilates. Her first class was at Club Pilates Morena (Original) in 2012, she felt so in love that she started her teacher training 2 months after that. Since then, Fernanda has taught thousands of classes, and what she loves the most about Pilates is that whenever she tries a class with another instructor, she always learns something new. Pilates is definitely her passion. Her favorite Pilates exercise is side bend on the box. She loves to challenge her clients. She also owns an active wear line. When Fernanda is not working, she loves to take her two boys to the beach or go for bike rides on the board walk. Brazilian food is definitely her favorite.
