About Me

I founded the first Pilates studio in the German-speaking world in 1990 and in 2000 established Bodyhood©Pilates, an innovative approach to the works of Joseph H. Pilates.

The man who started it all. He was motivated to overcome obstacles of all kinds. When he was a child illnesses like rheumatic fever. When he was a grown up and imprisoned during World War I, he did not get discouraged either but taught his exercise system to his inmates with such great success that his authorities send him to the Isle of Man to work with patients immobilized by war injuries.
This man did not give up.
