Let's Warmup Properly

Warm up without skates. The goal is to leave the body ready to give its best and be protected from potential injuries in your adventures on skates.

I was lucky enough to train with the best figure skating coaches in the world, to represent my country in international competitions and to judge competitions for several years. In the last few years, I fell in love with the rhythm of roller dance and today I enjoy fusing styles. With all that experience, I’ve created my clases. The always start with a good warm up off skates to, not only protect your body for potencial risks, but to help you gain good body-brain connections that every skaters need while creating their routines!
