The beauty of Pilates is it’s adaptability to individuals' needs and abilities. Whether you are recovering from injury, are or were pregnant, are 18 or 65+ years of age, or are a professional athlete, Pilates has benefits for everybody. We are here to show you how.
We are located in the peaceful and tranquil location of Cass Bay, Lyttelton. The perfect place to switch off your mind from your day to day and to refocus internally.
"Mens sana in corpore sano" means as much as "a healthy mind lives in a healthy body" and was already recognised by the Romans as what to strive for in life. Joseph Pilates incorporated this old saying in his method by understanding that mind and body cannot be treated separately but are dependant on and influence each other.
Pilates allows for the peace and internal focus to connect mind and body, to breath deeply and to regain your energy and strength. You will feel invigorated.
All clients new to pilates or those with injuries or pain are advised to book an introductory session / initial assessment. Fundamental pilates principals will be explained as a building block for postural awareness, deep and functional breathing and stabilising muscle activation.
Exercises will be broken into segments to prepare for mat class participation. Health history as well as specific tests will allow an insight into clients movement strategies, strength and flexibility and will make it possible for the teacher to address potential problems in class or in individual training sessions.

Katrin was born and raised in Germany. She developed a passion for health and wellness during her studies of Sports and Exercise Science that brought her to New Zealand to complete a Postgraduate Degree in this field. Her main focus was on musculoskeletal rehabilitation and sports nutrition. Her full time employment with The Back Institute (TBI Health, Auckland), further increased her knowledge and understanding not only of back injuries and chronic pain but also of other sports and overuse injuries that often occur as a result of repetitive and one sided movement strategies. The Pilates method matched and deepened her holistic approach and understanding of treatment and quickly became a passion. In 2015 Katrin completed her teacher training with Polestar Pilates and was certified in the internationally recognised Rehabilitation Series.
With her love for movement and health, and her awe for the bodies abilities to heal and improve, Katrin enjoys to guide her clients to better body awareness, strength and posture. She is taking pride in delivering the highest treatment standard to achieve the best possible treatment outcome for all her clients and is dedicated to guiding them towards realistic and achievable goals based on latest research findings.
Katrin has two little boys and is just returning from a 6 months maternity break. Hours and classes will increase as the year progresses.
