Christina Constantinou since a young age was into sports, being an endurance track runner where she excelled and won several distinctions. Throughout her life, she has been trying out any sport that caught her attention (tennis, snow and water skiing, basketball, snowboarding, surfing and many more) Nevertheless, her studies and subsequently her career took to a completely opposite direction. For multiple years, she worked in the field of marketing, in an enviable position by most professionals of the field. On the contrary, Christina never managed to trick herself into believing that this was her purpose. After countless hours stuck in her office chair, with her eyes staring at the computer screen and her body suffering, she started looking for ways to discharge.
That is how running comes back into her life and long distance and Marathon races enter her routine. After daily training sessions, she listens to her body craving for something more to avoid the contractions running brings to her muscles and Pilates comes into the picture for the first time. Since 2014 her daily routine shapes to be running in the morning, office work during the day and Pilates at night. As the kilometres she run every day add up, so does her anticipation to get off work and practise Pilates. During this period is when her teenage dreams gradually come back into her memory and she realises that these dreams had nothing to do with her career at the time.
A sports tourism trip to the far east, where she socialized with people whose lives revolved around sports, was the final nudge she needed to take the decision to leave everything behind. She started her training in Pilates completing 200 hours Pilates Teacher Training Program Mat Work, 150 hours Pilates Equipment Teacher Training Program and she continued with teaching Pilates in private lessons and small groups. Since then Mondays are no longer the worst day of the week, as every Sunday she can’t wait for another working week to begin.
