About Vedrana

Bachelor of Physiotherapy and Pilates teacher

My name is Vedrana and I specialize in Functional Pilates. I was born in Zagreb, Croatia where I lived until 2017. when I moved to my new home in Kilcock, Ireland. My first encounter with Pilates was in 2015 due to my own troubles with low back pain after my 2nd C-section. After I finished my physiotherapy sessions, my pain was still active. So, doctor suggested I go and do some Pilates. I started classes in Pure Pilates Studio in Zagreb with teacher Jelena Svalj. After 2 months of twice per week Pilates classes I noticed improvement in my posture, my leg didn’t go numb like before and my back troubles were suspended. I continued to do Pilates classes because I enjoyed it so much. I fell in love with functional technique and for maintenance reasons. During that period of time I had absolutely NO problems with my lower back. And, by the next summer I had the best abs ever. Pilates method inspired me to become Pilates teacher, so I started teaching classes in Pure Pilates studio. My classes are based on functional movement, which I can explain as movement with a purpose, movement that takes into considerations starting from neutral posture and focusing on movement mainly with our ball and socket joints- shoulder and hip joints. This methodology is focused on maintaining natural spine alignement and overall body posture through functional movement patterns. I am continuously educating in spine health and safety and that makes my classes safe as well as challenging. Due to my education path I consider myself Teacher/Therapist and structure my classes accordingly. Principles of spine safety and functional movement are base of my teaching.
