Studio Experience Supervisor

Mourvi has been living in Dubai for over 20 years and has no plans of leaving anytime soon. Someone really does love the sun!

After the completion of her BBA with honors in hospitality she discovered her heart truly lies in bringing joy and happiness to others and there is no better place to do that than the hospitality industry. She enjoys learning and increasing her knowledge and hence decided to earn her master's degree in tourism and hospitality.

She's a firm believer in exceeding her self-set goals, making every project a chance to go above and beyond.

One of Mourvi's guilty pleasures, believe it or not, is food. Whether it's savoring a delectable dish from a local eatery or experimenting with new recipes in her own kitchen, her enthusiasm for gastronomy is boundless.

Growth Manager

Stephanie grew up in Toronto where she fuelled her passion for health by playing competitive football, drove her adoration for meeting new people and communication and sparked her interest in operations and marketing by being painfully organized in all aspects of life.

Upon graduating with a BA in Media Communications, Stephanie went into the Marketing world travelling all over Canada with Volkswagen and Audi Canada. But soon she realized that her true passion was in helping others find time in their lives to dedicate to their health and wellness. She went on to manage a boutique fitness studio before scratching an inner itch for new adventures and moving into the hospitality field in Dubai. For the 3 years before joining Real Pilates Stephanie was growing a successful startup into new regions. But when she found the opportunity at Real Pilates, Steph knew it was time to get back to her roots of promoting a healthy lifestyle.

Her positive energy, ‘can-do’ attitude and contagious optimism translates well into her role at Real Pilates and she’ll always welcome a friendly conversation over coffee.
