Stella started practicing Pilates in 2011 using the STOTT PILATES® method to ease back pain stemming from her pregnancy. Her back pain disappeared within a few months, and she was intrigued by the effectiveness of Pilates and wanted to learn more. In 2014, she took her first STOTT PILATES training program and became a STOTT PILATES Certified Instructor in 2015.
Since then, she has continued to learn and explore the STOTT PILATES method as well as other forms of human movement science, such as the Kinetic Control, Franklin Method® and Feldenkrais Method.
In 2020, she became a Merrithew™ Instructor Trainer specializing in STOTT PILATES. She believes that the power and knowledge of movement can help everyone achieve his/her best quality of life.
