♥ Online live + Recording

Max flexibility but still fix appointments with live sessions plus recording for another 7 days. Online classes are a great option for new moms especially as it can be stressful sometimes to have to go somewhere and pack a thousand things for your infant.

♥ Offline analog + live at an announced location

The pandemic is taking a break and there are no rules at the moment. Let’s hope it’ll stay like it for good or longer at least so we can work out together the non digital way. In Unterschleißheim at the Familienzentrum there’ll be new phare pilates and phare mom classes starting in September. In the meantime I’m looking for pop-up and outdoor locations.

Start now and move yourself happy!

I’m Marie.

Since 10 years I’ve been a holistic fitness coach and movement optimist with all of my heart. 

As citizen of the world at heart and with a former career in travel, I lived in Sydney, Zurich, and London, before returning home to Munich in 2015 to start my own Personal Training and Pilates Business.

Over the years I graduated from numerous international institutions earning certificats and diploma in Pilates, Fitness- and Personal Training, Yoga, Ayurveda Massage, Communication, and coaching pre- and postnatal women. With a very comprehensive Pilates educations under my belt and thousands of classes taught until today, the method has become one of my favourite ways to help people feel and move better. 

Why Pilates

No matter what I currently fancy for a workout, I always come back to Pilates. It’s my base, my lighthouse, and my love. It’s such a rich and versatile movement concept that gives me direction and provides me with holistic health.

Because of doing Pilates, I feel better at all of my other activities. It’s simply a performance- and feel-good enhancer. Whether practised solo or complementary to other sport, Pilates is a game changer.

Motherhood & Training with and for Moms

Having a midwife sister it naturally happened to focus on working with moms pre- and postnatal. My own pregnancy 2018 and the experiences of being a mom has put theory and work experience into some real context.

Pilates is, next to its many other benefits the ideal and a pretty cool way to integratively train your pelvic floor and core. It doesn’t matter when you start, it only matters THAT you start.

Fearless Movement

During those last years with the pandemic and also in the realm of Pilates, people are often confronted with a lot of myths and fear. With critical thinking and the latest evidence-based best practice I pursue the goal of debunking those myths and help you moving joyfully and fearlessly. 

Come move with me!

Lots of love,
