Daughter of a Brazilian mother and a Swiss father, Isabel is born and raised in Brazil. Since her childhood she is fascinated by the world of dance and the different methods of body-work. Consequently, she decides to make a living of her passion for movement and its instruction.
In 1986, during her studies of "Physical Education and Sports" at the University of Sao Paulo (USP) in Brazil, she starts her career in sports related health & physical activities– first in Brazil then from 1997 in Switzerland – as a Group Fitness Manager, Personal Trainer and Professor of the Health/Fitness education at the Bern University of Applied Sciences/Swiss Federal Institute of Sports Magglingen SFISM.
In 2004 Isabel discovers her passion for Pilates during a workshop in Lausanne. Starting her structured Pilates education in 2005, she certifies in 2013 with Polestar© to become a Pilates Studio Trainer (all Pilates equipment).
During the same year Isabel makes her dream come true and becomes an self-employed Pilates teacher at "Pilateszone". She continues her Pilates education with Karin Locher (Centre for Spatial medicine) based on the newest fascia research.
