Pilates and Postnatal Instructor
Sports and exercise have always been an essential ingredient in Andrea’s life. Born and raised in Zurich, a variety of sports have played an important role whether it be judo, snowboarding, tennis, gymnastics or swimming. However, her life-long passion is dance. As a young girl, Andrea trained in Switzerland in ballet, jazz and modern dance, which led to her training at the London Contemporary Dance School and The Ailey School in New York. Following that, she spent time working with a dance company in America and South Africa. Professional dance training brought Pilates into Andrea’s life at an early age and the passion she felt for this inspired her to become one of the first certified Pilates instructors in Switzerland. She is certified to teach on all apparatus, with substantial anatomy, physiology and pathology knowledge and was given the opportunity to gain experience by applying Pilates in a physiotherapy studio which specialised in support and rehabilitation for athletes. Andrea worked in several Pilates studios in the Zurich and Zug areas before opening her own studio near Zurich lake.
Andrea majored at the University of Zurich and at the University of Kent in English, German and Contemporary Dance studies. In addition, she has completed her teaching degree for upper secondary schools from the University of Zurich and is currently working part-time as an English teacher. She is a mother of a teenage boy and loves to encourage his passion for sports in the mountains and on the water.
In addition, Andrea is an experienced Pre/Postnatal Training Specialist and is passionate about providing women with safe & effective workouts for this time of life.
