Flavia Zeleznik was born in Brazil and lived in NY for 13 years before moving to Santa Monica just 2 months ago. After having her second child Flavia developed diastasis recti (abdominal separation) and Pilates was recommended for rehabilitation. With Pilates Flavia learned how to work out smart, breath and be patient with herself. With that she thought, “I want to do this for the rest of my life.”Flavia majored in Business – Hospitality and Tourism in college. In addition to her 600hours certification from Power Pilates in New York, Flavia is a trained Chef and worked as a cook at a very busy, well known restaurant in NYC before finding her way to Pilates. A native of Brazil, she teaches in both English and Portuguese.
Flavia was trained under Power Pilates Teacher Trainers Jordana Herman, Lesly Levy and Stephanie West. She originally came to NYC to visit a friend and met her soon-to-be husband.
