Olga was born on 4th July 1986 in a small town called Ternopol in the Ukraine. At the age of 4 she was scouted at the kindergarden by a professional gymnastics coach and when she was 5 she began competing in local competitions. Two years later, aged 7, she competed already in regional competitions for the city.

At the age of 9 she was scouted again at one of those regional competitions and offered the chance to attend a full time gymnastic school in Kiev. This school was a centre of excellence for athletes and Ukraine's heart of gymnastics. There, Olga had the opportunity to train and compete at both, National and International level, for the Ukraine. At the age of 10 she was selected for the Junior NAtional Team at the Olympic base,At the age of 14 she progressed on to the NAtional Team, and was awarded Ukraine's NAtional Champion From 14-16 years olds she took home many titles at a International Level.

When she turned 15, she graduated from the school at the Olympic Base. After her graduation she continued to follow a course at the Base in Physical Trainings and Sport but one year later, aged 16, she injured herself during a competition.

Towards the end of the Physical Trainings and Sport course, Olga heard about auditions for a very famous Circus. The Circus was called Cirque Du Soleil and she attended an audition, where as well as showing gymnastics talents, she had to sing, dance and act.
In January 2004 at the age of 17 she joined Cirque Du Soleil's show Alegria and started her new life as a performer. She performed in Alegria for five years as one of the main characters, called Forest Nymph. In that number, her parts nvolved Physical Acting, Dancing, Tumbling, Trampolining as well as some speaking roles. After 5 years with Alegria, lga wanted a change and in 2009, Cirque Du Soleil offered her to perform in the world's biggest touring show Corteo.

Corteo was completely different from Alegria, because it had many aerial acts. Due to her background in gymnastics, he
integrated very well, and her first number called "Paradis" was a very daring trapeze act. Soon after came the second number, "Marionette", which was a character based aerial act, and finally a third called "Lustre", which involved acrobatic dance routines on a very big swinging chandelier. After two years with Corteo, Olga was now performing three main acts as well as filling general roles. She also performed for promotional special events.

Olga is very thankful for the opportunities and experiences she has been given in the world of Gymnastics and with Cirque Du Soleil. She has reached a very high level in both professions and has been lucky enough to compete and perform in front of thousands of people all round the world. From 2005 on, while performing live, Olga has started to  take classes in Pilates all over the world and has since tried many different approaches of classical and contemporary Pilates. Besides her life as a performer, she has absolutely fallen in love with the art of Pilates and has decided to take it a step further by becoming a Stott Pilates Instructor.

As of now Olga has 13 years of experience in professional sport, 10 years experience on stage as a performer,and now
dedicate to her new passion and career as a Pilates Instructor, and With her strong sense of compassion, understanding of the body's movement and mind setting, Olga will make you reach your goal with ease.
