From the age of 18 I started teaching dance lessons (modern choreography) to children, teens and adults.During this time I danced in the BENELUX (Belgium, Netherlands Luxembourg) in several dance productions on events, receptions, parties,fairs etc. and worked as a choreographer for videos and theme events.
At 21, I established my own entertainment agency ( Rafaellas Hosting Dancing & Events).
In 2009 I became certified as a Zumba instructor and the last 3 years I focussed on teaching Latin dance to mature woman (choreographies Salsa & Bachata)After an injury in the lower back and hips my interest in Pilates grew because of the amazing results I experienced.
These results led me to become certified in Pilates so I could share my knowledge.
Since 2011 I have also obtained various certificates and diplomas and I continue to take monthly training courses.
Started my formation at Peak Pilates (NL) ( Classical mat 1-2) and after a bridge programm I finished my other formations (mat 3, Reformer, Cadillac, Barrel, Chair) at Balanced Body Brussels.
I changed my name to Rafaellas Pilates Center so I could focus on teaching Pilates full time.
Dancing and Pilates is the perfect combination.
In 2015 I became the proud owner of my fully equiped studio in Laakdal, Belgium, better known as The Pilates Center.
This year I decided to take my life to another level and came to Cabarete DR to start an other Pilates Center on the North coast.
