Pilates is a gentle and effective form of training that fits everyone - all ages, if your a beginner or at elite level, if you've got back pain or arthritis, injuries, athletes, dancers etc. You get an individual training-program with exercises adapted specifically to your needs and conditions.
Focus is on strengthening the deep muscles that are responsible for posture, stability and body control. Through stretch- and strengthening-exercises you work towards achieving a balance between flexibility and strength, which is often used in rehab training and by physiotherapists.The classes are preformed on both pilates equipment and on mat.

I am a certified dancer/dance teacher and found pilates in Munich, Germany, during rehab training of an injury. Since it gave me such good results as a dancer and in my everyday life I decided to become a pilates instructor, certified BASI Comprehensive Teacher Training 2012.
I have since then worked as a pilates instructor and dancer in Germany and Sweden, and also participated in several continuing educations and workshops.
