Claudia Rionda

Claudia’s passion with body movement manifested through dance in her early years. She started taking dance classes at the age on 6 in her native Brazil, and by 12 was dancing professionally. Although her career as a dancer seemed to be moving in a positive direction, she felt that something was missing. Her body was moving in space graciously, but somehow mechanically. Her desire to bring life and quality to her dance led her to study Contemporary Dance. It opened a whole new world of possibilities in the way she pursued movement. She had the opportunity to study techniques like the Feldenkrais Method, The Alexander Technique and other movement therapies in 4 year program at The Center for the Research of Movement in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Relocating to Miami in 1993, Claudia pursued her massage certification at Educating Hands School of Massage and continued to hone her technique by taking a variety of workshops and certification courses including NeuroMuscular Therapy, Shiatsu, Thai Bodywork, Ayurveda and Mother Massage. She believes that massage is a great way to establish communication with your own body. It brings awareness and a general sense of well being. Claudia worked for many years at the prestigious Mandarin Oriental Spa in downtown Miami. Claudia completed the Comprehensive Course for Teacher Training at Polestar Pilates Center in Miami and most recently became a certified barre instructor through The Booty Barre.  Claudia now feels that she is able to join the best of massage and movement. She believes that massage and Pilates combined with a healthy diet and lifestyle is an effective way to promote healing in the body and the mind.
