Anoushka was an early-adopter of Pilates in the UK and has been teaching since the late 1980’s. Her training took her to the United States where she had experience of working with Pilates ‘elders’ Romana Kryzanowska, and Eve Gentry, one might say the yin and yang of approaches to Pilates. Eve had a particularly strong influence on Anoushka’s Pilates teaching.
She has a love of Eastern health and movement traditions and has practised Shiatsu, Tai Chi and Yoga, as well as Feldenkrais, GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS®. Her highly intuitive approach to teaching Pilates is born of a deep understanding of movement developed through these different disciplines.
Anoushka’s true passion, which was also the common bond that united the founders and led to the creation of IPTA, is for teacher training, which she has been delivering since 2004, in both mat and apparatus based Pilates. Her training is grounded in a traditional approach to Pilates but allows her students to explore and develop their own teaching style. Thus her training encourages the diversity that she appreciates in IPTA.
