STOTT Pilates mat
STOTT PILATES emphasizes the "neutral" spine and pelvis, the alignment and stability of the pelvic girdle, mobility and strength of the deep and surrounding muscles. The exercises are designed so that the natural curves of the spine can recover and the muscles around the joints are balanced.
The 5 biomechanical principles raise awareness about how the body moves.
Privat lessons at home
Posture analysis: I analyse your body in standing and movement patterns while walking to see which exercises will help you to recover your balance. The private classes can also be followed by pairs. The classes last one hour.

The Pilates Method
Pilates is a body conditioning routine that may help build flexibility, muscle strength, and endurance in the legs, abdominals, arms, hips, and back. It puts emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment, breathing, and developing a strong core or center, and improving coordination and balance. Pilates' system allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty from beginning to advanced. Intensity can be increased over time as the body conditions and adapts to the exercises.
Pilates improves muscle tone, balances in musculature, supports correct posture, and teaches to move with ease and grace.
Pilates was designed by Joseph Pilates, a physical-culturist from Mönchengladbach, Germany. During the first half of the 20th century, he developed a system of exercises which were intended to strengthen the human mind and body. Pilates believed that mental and physical health are interrelated.
