What is Pilates?

„Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness“
(Joseph H. Pilates).

The eight guiding principles of Pilates are:


Flowing movements

The Pilates method is an effective workout, simultaneously strengthening and stretching entire muscle chains to help build a balanced, supple physique.

The focus is on strengthening and activating the deep muscles situated closely to the skeletal system. The abdominal and pelvic floor muscles, as well as the (lower) back muscles, are called the “powerhouse”. These muscles work together to stabilise the torso and ensure an upright posture.

Thanks to varied exercises and a range of training equipment, Pilates is suitable for EVERYONE.

In one-on-one training sessions, clients’ individual needs are taken into account and a personalised training plan is created. The programme includes numerous exercises using specially developed equipment, such as the Reformer, Cadillac, and Pilates Chair.

Using smaller pieces of equipment (e.g. magic circle, resistance bands, balls, weights and foam rollers), the body is strengthened, mobilised and stretched in small group sessions. As much as possible, individual needs are also considered in group settings.

Pilates increases awareness and control of your body. It also works well as part of a cross-training programme for professional athletes and dancers, as well as supporting rehabilitation after injury.


Why Pilates?

Regular Pilates training:

  • Improves general mobility and mobilises the spine
  • Strengthens muscles, including skeletal muscles
  • Targets your core - the “powerhouse” at the centre of your body
  • Alleviates chronic back and joint pain
  • Improves balance and coordination
  • Stimulates circulation and metabolism
  • Supports post-natal recovery
  • Prevents osteoporosis
  • Helps you ‘unlearn’ unhealthy patterns of movement
  • Prevents injury

The History of Pilates


Joseph Hubertus Pilates (1883-1967), born in Monchengladbach, developed the Pilates Method by combining training methods of East and West. For this, he is considered a pioneer and visionary.

His fascination with sport and movement began early – as a child, he developed an interest in gymnastics, boxing and bodybuilding. He later moved to England, where he worked with soldiers injured in World War I. Pilates used hospital beds as training equipment to prevent muscle atrophy in uninjured parts of the body. This helped to speed up healing and rehabilitation. He initially named his training concept “contrology”.

In 1926, Pilates emigrated to the United States, meeting his future wife Clara on board the ship that carried him to New York. They later opened the first Pilates Studio at 939 Eighth Avenue, where they worked with many famous dancers and choreographers.

Joseph Pilates worked individually, creatively and intuitively!

He spent more than 50 years researching and perfecting his complex concept for movement.

I am Kirsten

I began my Pilates journey for health reasons.

I first came across the method after herniating a disc almost 20 years ago. At the time, Pilates was still largely unknown in Austria. The fascination with this type of training then continued throughout my career in photography and film. In 2012, I decided to follow my dream of becoming a Pilates instructor and began the time-consuming training alongside work and family. I completed my training in 2014 and initially only taught a few hours each week, while still working full-time in the film industry. Four years later, I decided it was time to work exclusively as a Pilates instructor.

Joseph Pilates continuously worked on himself and his method. Were he alive today, the Pilates Method would no doubt have continued to change and grow. Because of this, I see continuous development and moving with the times as in line with the original philosophy.

Pilates 1-2

A challenging class for participants with prior experience. It focuses on more advanced core-strengthening exercises, requires a pre-existing familiarity with the basics, promotes further enhancement of body control and offers a faster exercise flow.




  Deep Stretch

In the hustle and bustle of life, we need moments of relaxation and serenity. This relaxing "me time" helps to dispel stress and awaken our inner sense of happiness. This precious time for yourself also promotes the stretching of your fascia, the hidden networks of your body.

Intro Class

This class is a gentle introduction for beginners to this training method. Typically, it starts with an explanation of the basics, body awareness and alignment. It is followed by some classic exercises from the Pilates Program, preparing participants for open-level classes. The session lasts, depending on the number of participants, for 1 to 1.5 hours.
