Rhythmic Gymnastics represents a strong connection to my childhood. A sport I practiced for nine years as an athlete in Romania and for the past 20 years as a coach in Canada. Rhythmic Gymnastics has taught me a number of skills and disciplines which I apply to my everyday life.
My coaching style has a disciplined yet playful approach. My education and background is in Physiotherapy which helps me identify and customize a training approach suited for each gymnasts’ needs which helps deliver excellent results.
My goal as a coach is to develop kids into happy, healthy athletes and individuals. My purpose is to help pave their own path to success as great ambassadors in this beautiful and artful sport of Rhythmic gymnastics!
