About Vlada’s Class

Learn how to really take care of and preserve your dancer’s body in the best way possible in order to execute everything you demand of it on a daily basis through the use of Authentic Pilates Method.

You will learn a Classical mat work routine and traditional Pilates techniques for bodies in motion. Each week we will progressively explore areas like stronger centre for better movement, safer back bends and healthier hips. What is taught in the class can be taken into the body and be utilised throughout each dancer's movement helping you with balance, control, finesse, strength and flexibility from head to toe.

About Vlada

Vlada is the first instructor to bring full traditional Pilates Method from NYC to Dublin. Vlada moved to New York to specifically study Pilates from its original Romana’s Pilates School where she underwent 2 years of comprehensive training and a rigorous 600 hour apprenticeship. While apprenticing at True Pilates New York Studio she worked with and observed dancers from the biggest companies of New York (Alvin Ailey, Martha Graham) benefitting from Authentic Pilates Method.

Originally a graduate of Dublin Institute of Technology (BSc Leisure Management 1.1) Vlada has over 11 years of experience in personal training/fitness coaching and sports massage therapy. By all means Vlada is not a professionally trained dancer, but she always had passion for dance from an early age. While in New York City she also pursued her passion for dance, where she studied ballet and contemporary (Peridance Capezio School). Today she stays in touch with dance world through helping dancers work on their alignment, strength and flexibility through classical Pilates out of her recently established classical Pilates studio - The Pilates Studio Dublin, based in Ranelagh.

‘My goal is to help each dancer reach deeper and higher and to become stronger and healthier in their dance career. I am  here to work and balance the body, to enhance the strengths and to improve the weaknesses. I work with the dancers to get the most out of their body, to give them an advantage through the use of Authentic Pilates Method.
