My Pilates journey started 28 years ago after the birth of my second child as I was looking for a gentle yet powerful training method.
Pilates promised what I was looking for: strengthening the whole body, but especially the core, while also lengthening and stretching it.
When my children started school I started instructing dance classes for children and teenagers and dance workout classes for adults.
After moving to Dubai in 2011, I certified as a Pilates teacher with Pilatesmoves Australia, BodyHack Dubai and Pure Pilates Dubai. Since then I am teaching reformer, tower, chair, mat, pre-&postnatal, and pre Pilates.
In workshops and teacher trainings I am continuing my education and in the last six years, I have increasingly focused on the classical Pilates method.
In October 2018 I moved back to Hamburg with my family and started to teach Pilates in various studios in Volksdorf, Eimsbüttel, and Altona.
With Corona, i.e. since March 2020, I started teaching exclusively online on Zoom. Since January 2021 I am teaching online from and offline in my small home studio in Hamburg Wellingsbüttel.
As a Pilates instructor I am focusing on holistic bodywork, in the sense of the six principles of Pilates: breathing, centering, concentration, precision, control and flowing movement.
Conscious breathing, mindful body awareness and graceful movement are the basics of my Pilates lessons.
Precision, concentration, sweat, and flowing movement are the content.
Stability, mobility, flexibility, control, a better posture and the joy of movement are the goal.
