«Change happens through movement and movement heals».
Joseph H. Pilates
With personal attention I fully commit to you and your individual needs and wishes. I faithfully follow the words of Joseph H. Pilates:«movement heals».
I strive to offer you a holistic training program that creates a fusion of body and mind. I combine the Pilates principles with the newest medical realisations and work with the anatomically based movement and therapy concept of Spiraldynamik®.
The Pilates method involves concentration and coordination of breath and movement, which in return helps to relieve stress and chronic tension. Correct body posture is relearned and an increase in body awareness is achieved. The systematic training with progressive exercise sequences targets all areas of the body, focusing on proper use of “the core” and increasing strength, flexibility, balance and coordination.
The training sessions are suitable for everyone, athletes, the physically active as well as individuals recovering from injuries.
All instructors teaching in my studio have the highest possible training and regularly keep up their education to deepen their training and expertise, allowing them to cater flexibly to your needs and wishes.
«Above all, breathe correctly.»
«Physical fitness can neither be achieved by wishful thinking nor outright purchase.»

«A few well-designed movements, properly performed in a balanced sequence, are worth hours of sloppy calisthenics or forced contortion.».
«Every moment of our life can be the beginning of great things.»
«Don’t settle for good, strive for greatness.»
«Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness.»
«Pilates is gaining the mastery of your mind over the complete control of your body.»

Pilates is a holistic training program that creates a fusion of body and soul. The method is unique in its balance between strengthening and stretching. Pilates is a living discipline that continues to be developed and refined through constant use and observation. It is taught on a mat and on tailor-made handcrafted equipment at different levels depending upon ability. A strong focus is to strengthen the body’s core, i.e. abdominals, back muscles and pelvic floor. The method involves concentration and the coordination of breath and movement, thereby helping to balance the mind and body, which in return helps to relieve stress and chronic tension. Correct body posture is relearned and an increase in body consciousness is achieved.
Pilates is suitable for everyone, athletes, the physically active as well as individuals recovering from injuries. Today, an estimated 15 million individuals worldwide practice Pilates. It is far more than a collection of exercises.
Yogalates? Don’t let the name confuse you! Yogalates is a fusion practice that merges the ancient Indian practice of yoga with the Western practice of Pilates. It combines the yogic focus on enhanced mind and body awareness, strength, stamina, flexibility and balance, with Pilates techniques to improve core strengths, posture and create a strong, stable foundation for movement. Both emphasize correct breathing and meditative mindfulness.
Yogalates is suitable for all ages and is excellent for developing general tone and fitness, while also encouraging a connection with self to soothe the nervous system, release stress, aid relaxation and instill inner calm and overall wellbeing.
Spiraldynamik® is an anatomically based movement and therapy concept from which the coordinated use of the body can be derived.
Spiraldynamik® enables one to develop an expanded awareness of familiar movement patterns. The three-dimensional use of space as a design element is well known and familiar to dancers and movement educators. The perception of three-dimensional movement possibilities in the joints, however, is barely known.
If not used correctly, muscles and ligaments lose elasticity and dynamism and the range and diversity of movement is restricted with time. This results in false movements and overloads of the joints that eventually lead to injuries and pain. Anatomically correct movement in the daily training and professional life is important to injury prevention and is necessary for long-term performance and the durability of the body.
In Spiraldynamik®, the origins of pain and incorrect loading are precisely analysed and new movement qualities are taught.Spiraldynamik® is suitable for almost all complaints of the movement system – pain, tension, premature wear and tear. With the help of Spiraldynamik® therapy, movement lessons or individual consultations, you can optimise your movement sequences and posture.

Michèle is incredibly observant and empathetic and seems to know my body better than I do. I cannot think of a better coach than Michèle and highly recommended her to anybody who is serious about his or her body.
Michèle is a great teacher. I appreciate her friendly and collegial manner, but also her great knowledge of the things she teaches. She never loses sight of the existing potential and is very flexible and open when it comes to designing the lessons. Her will to always take you forward, is what makes her stand out.
Through the Pilates training with Michèle, my physical and mental well-being has improved considerably and the restrictions in everyday life belong to the past. I have built up muscle mass, increased mobility and lost fat. In her bright and beautifully furnished studio you immediately feel at home! I particularly appreciate Michèle's high level of professionalism and her personal, friendly and demanding manner. The individual training has helped me to stretch my physical limits further and further. I never thought at the beginning of my "Pilates career" that I would ever be able to do certain exercises again with my back problems. The hopes have been surpassed by quantum leaps - and it still carries on. Thank you!
My back pain is gone! I have become more flexible, fitter and stronger! I like Michèle's professional, yet personal way. Michèle is a very well trained teacher and always knows how to motivate me!
The Pilates training with Michèle has helped me to strengthen the abdominal and back muscles. I have a better body awareness and can now practise other sports again. I would recommend her anytime.
I can sum up all my experiences in one sentence: Pilates training, the new and completely different experience of listening to my body, of actually feeling it again, of learning movement sequences and exercises that seemed unthinkable to me a few years ago, and Michèle's in-depth, intelligent, careful training, her vast knowledge have changed my life.
The holistic approach of this training method is unique. I feel better after EVERY single workout. Michèle varies the intensity and the sequence of the training and corrects very precisely. Michèle dedicates all her focus to the client and gets the most out of me. Pilates training is the best investment in my physical wellbeing and fitness.
