Iovana Velasquez Pilates Instructor

Iovana Velasquez Pilates Instructor

With a background in the media industry, Iovana was introduced to Pilates as an exciting part of her dance training in Colombia and the UK.

Iovana constantly practises different disciplines like the Alexander Technique, Yoga, Feldenkrias and more recently GYROKINESIS®. She incorporates the best of each into her Pilates teaching to protect, improve and balance one’s body as well as provide remedial support after injuries.

Putting together 15 years of movement experience and her PILATESfoundation® UK teacher training, Iovana provides a deep understanding of human anatomy. Working alongside an osteopath to best approach each individual body and injury, Iovana designs comprehensive and bespoke exercise programmes for each client in her London practice.

“The key is body awareness applied to daily life. A connection and strength between body and mind brings about a healthy mobilisation for people of any age with any level of pain, fitness, stiffness or mobility.”

For the last 7 years Iovana has taught in various studios around London and now plays a key foundational role in establishing the Body Alliance studio, offering Brockley and Brixton the highest level of quality instruction in the Pilates studio they were missing.
