Dario Novo

Dario is a highly qualified and accomplished practitioner in Therapeutic Massage, Shiatsu, Reflexology, Behavioural Medicine and Sports Injury Rehabilitation.

Originating from Turin, Italy, he moved to the UK in 1996 and has since set up two practises in health and wellbeing as well as continuing his studies in Exercise and Behavioural Medicine (MSc).

Dario’s vision is to make Pilates and general fitness accessible to all those wanting to maintain a healthy life balance. He presents a challenging programme within a realistic time frame, making it possible to work around a busy schedule.








Morena de Leonardis 

Morena has been teaching Pilates for over four years and has studied with Balanced Body. She has a degree in 'Movement and Sport Sciences' and has an extensive background in dance.

After finishing her studies at the University of Perugia in Italy, she worked as a dance and swimming teacher and has performed for several international dance companies.

She regularly attends Pilates and dance workshops to keep her up to date. Listening to and observing someone's body is the most important part of Morena's work. 









Isabella Scanu

After years of ballet, Isabella took her first Pilates class at the age of 15 and loved it straight away. She continued practicing until she moved to London from Italy and qualified as a level 3 Mat work and Reformer teacher with Body Control Pilates.

 Isabella’s key objective is to raise awareness about correct postural alignment and mobilization through the joints as well as strengthen the core and pelvic floor.  She enjoys helping people find more flexibility and balance in their everyday life.








Agnieszka Jędrzak  

Aga took her first Pilates class more than 10 years ago and she has been hooked ever since.  Health and Fitness has always played a significant role in Aga's daily life. Years of intense training as an avid lover of HIIT and a long distance runner put a strain on her joints and muscles.  This motivated her to seek out the perfect exercise routine. 

Aga is STOTT Pilates Certified Instructor staying true to the fundamental values, as originally set by Joseph Pilates.

She is a stickler for form and precision, adding to the intensity of the workout, and ultimately leading for faster results. Aga will leave you feeling leaner, longer, stronger and also with a greater understanding of the connection between your body and may even have a little fun too!
