Introduction

The background of Andrea, being a primary school Montessori teacher has made her a keen observer- a skill that she further developed in teaching pilates. It is important to her that clients experience more freedom and awareness in their movements, and learn to do so in a friendly and enjoyable manner. With a strong personal commitment to the development of her students, as well as a keen perception on when special attention is required, Andrea is the right trainer to stimulate your development at your own pace.

She loves to work with a variety of clients and has specialized herself in pre/post natal, scoliosis, back problems and pilates after breast cancer. Andrea is a mentor and educator at the polestar pilates education and finds it important to educate new trainers. To educate herself more she has started in August 2020 with 4-year training program of Feldenkrais in London, a movement education with similarities to pilates.
