Hanna was introduced to Pilates during her dance training she went on to train as a Pilates Matwork teacher with Pilates Training Solutions. She has since gone on to take further course in Prenatal and Postnatal Pilates and Pilates Stability Ball with Body Control. Hanna practised Pilates throughout both her pregnancies and experienced how beneficial it was on her own body and aided her recovery in the postnatal period which has led her to work closely with pregnant and postnatal women.
Hanna taught extensively throughout London in a number of Gyms, Private Studios and private classes. Hanna also taught several Private Clients many of whom were recovering from injuries such as hip replacement surgery or disc pathology and arthritis. She also built a strong working relationship with a Chiropractor on Harley Street who referred clients to her. One of her biggest interests is working with clients who are recovering from an injury and trying to aid them in their rehabilitation.
In 2013 Hanna went on to train as a Clinical Soft Tissue Therapy gaining a BTEC Professional Diploma (Level 5) with the Massage Training School which is accredited by the Institute of Sports and Remedial Massage (IRSM). This has given her an even greater understanding of the body and how it functions and has fed her interest in how massage and exercise can ease pain. She strongly feels that the combination of Remedial Massage and Pilates work to complement each other completely.
