I am a lover of movement.
I am a certified BASI Pilates Instructor and before training under Lotte Berk’s one and only daughter, Esther Fairfax. I taught Barre style fitness classes for many years. I always wanted to combine the two disciplines, because I felt there was something missing from each until I found the TRUE Lotte Berk technique that Esther was still teaching out of her studio in England.
Her knowledge of the female body was genius. Over time her work had been altered so much that it was barely recognizable. The lengthening and toning that I saw in such a small amount of time was unparalleled to anything I had ever seen or felt before. I have vowed to teach Lotte’s work in a way that America never got to see, to stay true to the genius design that she created so many years ago. My knowledge of the body through the various certifications (I am also pre and post natal certified) has helped me to help all women (including pregnant ones) navigate through this very specific technique and see AND feel exactly what made Lotte Berk such an iconic figure, literally!
“Living in London in the early sixties I used to go to Lotte Berk's classes somewhere near Baker Street. Once I was married, we moved out of London and abroad. All these years later, I was amazed to find Esther was teaching classes in her house close to where I live now.”
A Happy Client
