Maria’s passion about body movement started at a very young age at her birthplace in the northern part of Greece. She was playing basketball, doing track and field, and competing as a gymnast. After graduating from the School of Physical Education with a Masters degree in gymnastics and dancing, she joined a well known dance performing center in Thesaloniki Greece (Centro Balleto Classico) as a dancer as well as a teacher of contemporary dance. Her lifelong love for sports and being physically active took a new turn 11 years ago, when she started training with Marcy Schafler. Since then, Maria has completed her Pilates Certification program and has been teaching at Mind over Movement Pilates studio for the past two years. Maria is also a CoreAlign certified instructor. She teaches group and private classes at the studio. In her free time Maria is an avid skier and surfer.
