Maria Sylla earned her degree as an educator of ballet and contemporary dance in 2004. She worked as a professional dancer in several ballet and contemporary dance companies in Greece. She also holds a bachelor and a master degree in Pure Mathematics from the University of Athens.
She met Rael Isacowitz (a great inspiration for her) in Athens in 2009, fell in love with the BASI Pilates approach, and she immediately took the BASI course. A strong believer in on going education, passionate about the art of movement, and always a student, Maria has studied and taken workshops from many pilates teachers from all over the world in Greece and at the headquarters of BASI in Costa Mesa.
She has been teaching privates, semi-private pilates sessions, mat classes, and barre à terre classes in Holmes Place Athens since 2009.
She is delighted to be invited to join the BASI faculty in 2013 and really proud to be part of the BASI family.
