Gemma

Pilates has been a large part of my life since I was diagnosed with scoliosis at the age of 18. It has proven time and time again to be the best tool at managing my back condition and keeps me running after my energetic toddler!

I’m an ex Paralegal from London who moved to Copenhagen in July 2016 with my husband. I welcomed my first son in September 2016 and swiftly decided that a life back in the office wasn’t for me. I completed my Pilates training with Body Control Pilates as I believe their progressive approach to the Pilates method and their ongoing education for instructors is unparalleled and brings the best out of everybody.

Corinna

I am Corinna and I come from Italy where I completed a bachelor’s degree in Sport Science. After completing my degree, I worked in a rehabilitation center in collaboration with physiotherapists, where I developed training programs for people with back and shoulder injuries and scoliosis problems. Since 2013 I moved to Denmark with my husband and I was certified as a Matwork and Reformer teacher.

I love being physically active and I enjoy the importance physical activity has on humans. I enjoy inspiring and motivating my class-members and will try to challenge my teams with great pleasure.

I teach in both English and Danish.
