Meet Marianne

 

I discovered Pilates when moving to London in 2008 and was straight away amazed how I felt during and after my classes; feeling stronger from the inside out but also how it creates a real connection between my mind and my body.

In 2015 I decided to go further in my practice of Pilates and started my training with Body Control Pilates in London. I then juggled between a full time job in the fashion industry, my training and of course my own practice. I qualified in 2016 while pregnant with my son and once again was amazed how Pilates kept me strong during my pregnancy but also eased my recovery. 

Since becoming a qualified instructor I have furthered my knowledge and experience by qualifying as an instructor in pre/postnatal Pilates with Body Control Pilates, Pilates for runner with APPI, in Classical Pilates with LisaB Academy, High Intensity Power Pilates® with LisaB academy and I completed my comprehensive training (all Pilates apparatus) with BASI.

In 2017, back in my home country, Switzerland, I decided to share my passion for movement and Pilates and make teaching Pilates my full time job. I truly believe health and fitness are directly linked to happiness and love the fact that Pilates is accessible and can benefit everybody.

As a general all round fitness enthusiast I like to keep a dynamic approach to teaching while listening to each client's need and to look at ways to improve their strength and general well-being.
