Pilates treats the body as a holistic system. The gentle, yet intense workout is all about muscular balance and body awareness. Therefore, I include a variety of elements into my lessons. Such as:
the build-up of strength from the inside (to the outside)
stretching of the muscles
strengthening and mobilization of the spine
gentle mobilization of the joints
breathing and mindfulness exercises
I recommend attending an introductory course with 3 personal training sessions before joining an existing group. In these three sessions, you will discover your individual movement and posture patterns. That way you are ideally prepared for further courses. Essential basic principles of Pilates are integrated and embedded at the same time.
Even if you are already training in a group, the personal training workouts are an excellent way to improve and work on your physical basis.
In addition to classic and contemporary Pilates on the mat, my fully equipped studio offers exciting equipment such as two reformers, a cadillac, a chair, a ladder barrel, two step barrels and two springboards.
The workout on the Pilates equipment is a tailor-made training - demanding, varied and stands for highest training efficiency. They can provide you with an additional challenge or give you the necessary support to learn, understand and integrate the method from scratch. The equipment lets you work specifically on your weak points, which often prove to be relatively stubborn and insurmountable when training on the mat.
My work is connected to the roots of the traditional method of Joseph Pilates, this forms the strong basis. But I also value the latest research findings, which I integrate and incorporate into my work. Training on the Pilates machines is only possible in the form of personal training or as a duet.
The core is one of the most important elements of Pilates. By strengthening the deep abdominal muscles, the back muscles are simultaneously being stabilized. That way your posture and your flexibility improve. Deep and mindful workouts also help to improve your body awareness and coordination. This enables not only an effective whole-body workout but also mental relaxation.
The gentle and precise movements in Pilates flow seamlessly from one into the other. In doing so, internal organs are positively influenced, and your pelvic floor learns to function correctly.
It is never too late to start something new. My class "Fit at old age" is especially for elderly people. The gentle and athletic movements boost your physical, mental and social activities. I will help you to improve your abilities and work with you individually on your:
Posture and stability
Strength and safety
By gently mobilizing and strengthening the muscles, you improve motor skills and reduce the risk of falling. Your improved posture will let you walk more upright and radiant.
