Ana Barretxeguren is a movement educator, Pilates teacher and myofascial release practitioner. Through self-enquiry, a passion for anatomy and her extensive work helping people recover from injury, she has created Moving Fascia®, an embodied anatomy course that explores the fascial architecture through theory, embodiment, self-release and movement techniques.
Her own struggle with catamenial pneumothorax, a rare condition where a woman experiences repetitive lung collapses, has led Ana to a continuous investigation of fascia, focusing on the visceral space and its connections to breath and movement.
Ana holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Anatomical Sciences from the University of Edinburgh and has over 500 hours of human dissection research in the dissection lab. She has extensive clinic practice as a Myofascial Release and visceral manipulation practitioner and has been an educator in various Pilates teacher trainings for the past 12 years. Ana founded Evolve Movement Education in 2013 and is the owner of Brighton Pilates Studio, a Pilates and health centre in Brighton.
