Seeking a Life of…

Passion, Balance, Connection, and Love

Meet Marialuisa

Marialuisa was born and raised in Sicily in the beautiful and historical city of Messina.

At the age of 6, Marialuisa started practicing artistic Gymnastics, where she found her feet and passion in dance. She learned to communicate through movement and is inspired by her father, a prolific artist and painter.

After completing a professional dance education in her hometown, she relocated to Amsterdam in 2011 to embrace the vibrant creative art scene and to broaden her experience across multidisciplinary performing arts.

Fitness has always been a major part of her dance training and injury prevention. Now, Marialuisa is a certified GYROKINESIS® Trainer, Less Mills Body Balance Instructor, Barre, Pilates and LAGREE FITNESS coach. Her classes offer a holistic approach to exercise which inspire and energise you from a cellular level, so you will grow a deeper appreciation for life, and you will ignite an awareness of your own strength and possibilities.

She is committed to developing comprehensive training for you to reach your highest potential. With attention to structure and form, she will tap into your inner most strengths, so you can live as the best version of yourself.

Health is a Journey


When she was a little girl, Marialuisa experienced pain in her joints. For most of her dancing career, she had to learn immense body awareness to ensure she was doing the right exercises for her body. On a deep level, fitness helped to strengthen her joints and to retrain various movement pathways in her body.

Her experience and obstacles as a professional dancer have helped her become a more instinctual and passionate coach.

Marialuisa is a very attentive teacher, who always explains in a positive way.”

I love Marialuisa’s Pilates classes. She provides very good explanations of all exercises, dedicating a lot of time, attention and efforts into making all movements clear. She really makes my day when saying: “YES, much better Francisca!!” Great classes to keep me in shape.
