Before we’ll go into the facts about this amazing workout, let me tell you a bit about my story with Pilates.
The first time I came across Pilates was about 8 years ago when I was a member in a new local fitness studio in Eilat, Israel, where I used to live.
I remember having no idea what Pilates was, but I was in the search for an interesting workout routine. It was quite interesting because during the class, I almost didn’t feel any of my muscles works, but after the class I literally felt my muscles sore.
So I continued going to the class and with time I started noticing the changes in body.
I was always eating healthy and clean most of the time, but I had never before had a muscle definition showing. However, after a few weeks preforming Pilates, I started seeing how nice my body is getting in the nice shape I was wishing for.
After that, moving back to Tel Aviv, I continued with Pilates in a privet studio, which was specialized in reformer Pilates, and discovered a whole new world of movements.
You can definitely say that I fell in love with Pilates, and my dream was to learn how to teach it so that I can share this amazing system with as much people as I can.
It was a big dream of mine that I kind of kept in silent and thought that I will do it ‘one day’. As you guessed, that one-day never came till I decided to make it come.
Being new in Berlin, Germany was also a big experience by itself, and not necessarily the easiest. But I always knew that I’m gonna make my dream come true and become a Pilates teacher.
And so I did, and since then I can tell you that there is no greater feeling than the one I have after a Pilates class or a privet Pilates hour.
Pilates is by far the best thing that happened to me and my goal is to spread this love I have to Pilates wherever I go.
So here are some facts you must know about Pilates:

That is a also why I created the Pilates and the city events in Berlin. Which is a free outdoors Pilates class. For more information you can join me on Facebook or DM me.
