Sports and body awareness have always been very important to me, with skiing and windsurfing amongst my favourites. During my time as a university student, I taught fitness classes, which provided me with the foundation for my teaching in Pilates.
21 years ago, after I had my second child, I started doing Pilates and was immediately fascinated. I developed stronger, sleeker and more flexible muscles. Not only did I feel better and more energetic but I also preferred the way the different body muscles developed, compared to workouts at the gym. Four years ago I suffered multiple fractures to my pelvis in a skiing accident. The doctors didn’t believe that I would fully recover. However, thanks to a lot of Pilates training before, my muscles held the fractured bones in the right position and I fortunately didn’t require an operation.
