Josephine von Zastrow Pilates is my passion.
The classical method fascinates me because it connects - and changes - the head and the body. I started with contemporary Pilates and did my mat and equipment training. Looking for more depth, I found classical Pilates - and my home. I owe my classical training to Tony Rockoﬀ of The Pilates Standard and have completed The Pilates Standard's teacher trainer program. I teach classical Pilates in my small studio in Lübeck, Germany. In my other life I am a journalist by profession - and teach at a journalism school.
