Strength and Grace

In addition to teaching Pilates to a broad and diverse client base, Brigitte has continued her studies of Pilates and related fields such as the Feldenkrais Method, Alexander Technique, Franklin Method and neuromuscular  research, within the Pilates community in the United States, as well as in Germany and France. This background has given her a heightened understanding of the simple beauty, complex elegance, true effectiveness and grace of the Pilates method.
