Dalila El Merini is a certified personal trainer and yoga instructor, with extensive experience teaching and training people of all ages and abilities throughout Europe, Morocco, and Brazil. Her background in bodybuilding, competitive swimming, functional strength training, contemporary dance, martial arts, and yoga informs her mindful, methodical, and integrative approach to movement and wellbeing. The core of her work lies in teaching the fundamentals of strength training, mobility and yoga, with a focus on technique, quality of movement, body awareness and playful exploration. Dalila uses additional coaching methods to empower her students to cultivate a sense of agency in their own bodies and learn how find more balance in training and everyday life. She is fuelled by her desire to see people move with more ease and confidence, experience less tension, and to feel strong and thrive - both on and off the mat. Currently based in Berlin, Dalila works as a freelance personal trainer and yoga teacher, offering both group and 1:1 coaching, personal training, and yoga sessions. She works in person and online, through which she has the opportunity to work with people from all around the world in French, German, English, Italian, and Portuguese.
Work-Life-Balance means to me: Work-Life Balance is not some ideal state to achieve. We often think that once we create the “perfect balance”, we will finally feel accomplished, serene, and happy. I believe it is much more of a process, in which we cultivate the awareness of what goes on inside of us and around us, so we can better understand what we need to give to ourselves first in order to show up for the things that are meaningful to us. It’s about listening to ourselves and taking small steps towards becoming the person we’d like to be in our relationships, our workplace, and our day-to-day life. It doesn’t mean doing things perfectly, but committing to trying to do things a little better than we did the day before. It means being adaptable, because our needs, circumstances, and external demands might change frequently or unexpectedly. It also means practicing self-compassion throughout this process and knowing when it’s time to get out of our heads and into our bodies. To me, Work-Life Balance is a practice.
