Amanda began her Pilates journey in 2011 in Sao Paulo, Brazil where she used it to keep fit and learn Portuguese. Since then the classical method has seen her through her wedding, a move to the UK and the births of her two babies. In 2017 she took her love of Pilates to the next level by joining the inaugural APEI Teacher Training programme at Exhale with the goal of deepening her Pilates knowledge and sharing its amazing benefits more broadly.
