Aerial and circus arts, stretch/flexibility and conditioning
Video classes available during lockdown include stretching and conditioning without gym equipment. If you have a rigging point and aerial equipment in your home and would like a video lesson then this is also possible as long as you have a mat and I am able to assess your level beforehand. I also offer artistic advice to those creating an act. Post lockdown I have a space in Bristol where I can teach, or can travel to you if you have an aerial space we can use. I am a Cirque du Soleil artist (OVO, solo silks and duo web / AXEL, vertical chain, bungee and aerial hoop) and have 22 years performing and teaching in the circus industry. I have written a teacher training course for aerial arts and hold a level 2 ETM qualification in fitness instructing.

Online Pilates classes private or in small groups in your place.
Pilates is a method of exercise and physical movement designed to stretch, strengthen, and balance the body. With systematic practice of specific exercises coupled with focused breathing patterns, Pilates has proven itself invaluable not only as a fitness endeavor, but also as an important adjunct to professional sports training and physical rehabilitation of all kinds.

Private Yoga classes (Iyengar, Vinyasa, Sivananda, Ashtanga) at home
Having 20+ years of experience, I am interested in sharing my knowledge of yoga and the benefits of Reiki (energy harmonization) with everyone. I was trained in India where I lived for several years (Iyengar, Sivananda). Iyengar's individual approach allows you to work the postures accurately using the breath, without hurting yourself, learning to listen to him. I currently practice dynamic yoga based on a series of postures by consciously breathing that allows the mind to gradually let go. Private lessons allow you to establish a personal practice program. After a first interview, during which your motivations and needs are studied, you will leave with a personalized session to practice at home autonomously. I establish and guide a practice that will be reevaluated and intensified gradually by integrating reflexology and Reiki (energy harmonization) during each course. Private lessons can be done at the teacher's home or in English or in French. Enjoy a moment of well-being!

Personalized Yoga Sessions (taught in English). Online and In-Person
Having a physical and mental outlet- such as a regular home yoga practice- is so important. During the first confinement in France, I turned my in-person yoga classes into online sessions. The virtual classes I teach have proven effective for my beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. I have also resumed teaching in-person yoga sessions and classes in Paris. Yoga aligns your physical movement with your breath and increases physical strength and flexibility. Practicing yoga with a private teacher enables you to have the proper alignment for the postures, which ensures the most benefits. Yoga is great for people of all ages, shapes, and physical capabilities. Just a few of the many benefits of yoga include relaxation, relief of back discomfort, muscle tension, and stress. The private lessons that I teach are tailored to your goals and physical abilities. Yoga sessions will be given in the comfort of your home, or outside as weather permits. I am happy to answer any further questions you have, or set up a session with you at your convenience. Please take note that different fees will apply for groups, or corporate classes (depending on location and number of students). Thank you!

Online Class of Meditation/Yoga/QiGong/Kung-Fu for everyone
After 20 years of practice in a broad variety of sports, my daily practice now encompasses all these styles for a holistic approach to fitness and inner peace. It is applicable to any level, from beginners who want to discover the potential of their bodies to already sportive people who want to increase performance. During the practice, I emphasize mindfulness and sensations for students to learn how to listen to their bodies. If you want to focus on one style more than the others, don’t hesitate to tell me! I try as much as possible to work without any equipment, although a yoga mat would be useful. However, if you already have weights, ropes, or anything else, let’s make good use of them.

Camila
Private yoga classes in English, French or Spanish
With private yoga lessons, you will receive personalized instruction based on your body type. I will carefully prepare a class that meets your personal needs. Private yoga instruction can help you improve the basics and expand your yoga practice. People of all ages are welcome to practice yoga, with no need for previous experience. Classes can take place at your home or at mine in Leuven. Group classes are possible (5 € extra per person). In the first class, we can talk about your intention, background, and experience in yoga. From this, we can adopt a series of sessions that suit your personal needs and your preferred yoga styled. ABOUT CAMILA I started yoga when I was a teenager. My mom suggested me to go with her to help me cope with stress. Since I went to my first vinyasa class (a dynamic yoga class), in 2007, I was completely hooked. After a few years, I also started Ashtanga classes, the modern form of Indian classical yoga. In 2018, I decided to take the opportunity to become a teacher and obtained my 200h vinyasa training . In 2019 I moved to Belgium, and apart from my daily work, I would like to share my yoga experience and learn from the students.
