This ultimately led her to a Master’s degree in Dance Pedagogy for Social and Cultural Animation from the University of Zielona Gora, followed by certification as a Dance Movement Therapist from the Polish/English Institute of Dance Movement Therapy. Within a year of arriving in the United States in 2007, Paulina became certified as a Stott Pilates instructor and, a year after that, as a licensed massage therapist. Paulina’s certification in Active Release Technique further expanded the menu of healing modalities she offers. Through workshops and continuing education, she constantly strives to further her understanding of a whole person.
Paulina teaches Pilates, Barre and Zenga (a combination form that includes yoga poses, Pilates core, and flow). She uses props to support or challenge, and increase understanding of biomechanics of stability, mobility, coordination, and endurance. In her work you can see the influence of Feldenkrise, Alexander Technique, and Laban Movement System. She believes in touch as a feedback and guidance.
If someone walked into her class for the first time, Paulina would want to say to them “be open minded, fearless of heart, here there is no right or wrong and it’s great to be exactly where you are.”
Appointments with Paulina can only be booked over the phone or in person.
