The journey to health and wellness began with competing as an elite level, division 1 gymnast which resulted in multiple acute and chronic injuries, causing major physical change. A decade later, a car accident worsened her chronic back and hip issues. With the help of her rehab team of physical therapists and chiropractic care, she was guided and introduced to the holistic wellness world. She became a leader in the fitness/wellness industry with multiple trainings and certifications in the holistic health field since 2007. She transitioned from private podiatric practice with weekend emergency surgeries for diabetic foot infections, to full time teaching Anatomy & Physiology in 2012. She started teaching anatomy in a personal training school in 2008, and later, a massage therapy program in 2010. The rest is history! Dr. Milescu has taught Anatomy & Physiology, and other related Health Science courses since 2008.
She is a daily inspiration to those with physical challenges having had bilateral hip replacements in her late forties, and multiple severe bouts of acute, and chronic pain for several years due to herniated discs and disc bulges L-1 to L-5. Despite all her health challenges, she continuously strived to exercise, eat healthy, and be an example of resilience to her family, friends, and clients. She owned and managed Serenity Now Yoga Corp. on ground in Longwood Florida from January 11, 2010, to June 30th, 2022.
She now operates solely online since July 2022 for both the academic world and her fitness/wellness clientele teaching online as owner alongside her partner Laura Barsalou for Lupa Fitness Den.
About Laura Barsalou
About Laura Barsalou:
Laura is a professional bellydance performer and dance instructor, teaching weekly classes in Barre and Bellydance, as well as specialty topic classes and workshops. Laura started taking bellydance classes in 2004 and fell in love with the movements and expression of the dance. After immersing herself in training and practice, and under the tutelage of her first instructor, Laura was invited to join a bellydance troupe and started performing professionally. Laura broadened her study to a variety of bellydance styles, including American Cabaret, Improvisational and Fusion styles, while working with several studios throughout the region. Wanting to share her love to others, she completed a teacher training course in 2011 and has been teaching classes and workshops throughout Orlando ever since. Laura has also been a featured instructor at a number of bellydance conventions and workshops throughout the southeastern United States.
In 2014, Laura developed her professional dance company, BalaChandra BellyDance. As a student and performer at other studios, she dreamed of working with her own troupe to create her vision for style and choreography. The goal was to meld her training in both American Cabaret and fusion bellydance styles to create an aesthetic that is glamorous and wildly entertaining, that she describes as "glossy fusion bellydance." BalaChandra is sought-after for events of all types, and has been featured at art festivals, community events, nightclubs and restaurants. With Laura’s background in managing corporate events, she understands the unique challenges to running a successful event and can add that extra special touch to corporate entertainment offerings. Visit her website at www.BalaChandraBellyDance.com for more details about her performance company.
Through her commitment to fitness and the benefits of conditioning to her dance practice, Laura completed certification with Barre Above® in July 2018, teaching an assortment of barre formats and intensities, to help all her clients find the “flavor” of barre that best suits their needs. Laura is continuing her education and currently pursuing additional barre certifications and specialties to enhance her classes and instruction. She also is contracted through Seminole County Public Schools to provide barre fitness classes for employees as part of their Employee Wellness Initiative
