Anastasia Baranovskaya

STOTT PILATES® Certified Instructor
Pilates instructor (GZS)

After finishing her Physiotherapy studies, Anastasia's great love for Pilates brought her to Peti element. She used to be a professional volleyball player until she got injured in 2010 and discovered Pilates. At first, the method was only part of the post-rehabilitation process but quickly became a way of life. She is currently also practicing Martial Arts, a great complement to her Pilates practice, and finding her way in the world of manual therapy.
