About Grasie Souza
At the age of 27 when I was trying to become a mom.
A pelvic dysfunction issue popped up aggressively because I was no longer a dancer and an athlete practitioner, at the same time diabetes showed up, unfortunately it has been in my family for generations. I have lost my grandma and my mother is blind because of diabetes.
Working in the corporate world and spending many hours in a sitting position woke up a monster which had been sleeping. The pelvic dysfunction came out abruptly which put me bed ridden for over two months followed by depression and anxiety.
It is difficult to wake up from a nightmare when your ship is wrecked.
After numbers of physiotherapy sessions, I found myself hopeless, scared and trapped.
My doctor suggested that I try Pilates as one final option before having to resort to surgery to resolve my pelvic dysfunction issues. The Pilates worked! I completely healed from my pelvic issue and “returned to life”. I could step away from the insulin because I deeply immersed my body into the Pilates. This allowed me to keep treating diabetes just through meds, diet, and exercises for many years.
After practicing Pilates for many years. A passion to teach Pilates and help others suffering through body movement limitations came strongly. I believe that we can have a happier society if we keep moving our body.
