About Me

I founded the first Pilates studio in the German-speaking world in 1990 and established Bodyhood©Pilates in 2000, an innovative approach to the works of Joseph H. Pilates. I follow the free university concept, which lets me see possibilities where supposedly they are none, and I so manage to help the most usual and unusual body types.
