Hélène Bourbeillon - Member

When she was 13, Hélène knew what she wanted out of life : she wanted to become a dancer! She then left her family to follow a dance and academic training in Paris.

After beeing granted several awards and prizes , including the First Prize at the Paris Conservatoire de Paris, she joined the Youth Ballet of France and carried on her career within the Ballet of the Grand Théâtre de Genève with whom she has danced on the most famous stages worldwide.

Throughout her career, Hélène has always been interested in the human body, movement, well-being, preventative care and rehabilitation therapy. So she naturally turned to the Pilates method, whose efficiency and numerous benefits became immediately apparent to her. She trained and became certified at Swissbody's.

She met Karin Locher in 2013 and realises that she teaches more that a method of muscular strengthening, but that Pilates through a fascial lens , is well beyond straightening the imbalance that life has left on the body.

Joachim Schultz - Member & Faculty

Life is a journey, mine has taken me so far through 4 different German cities, London and eventually Zurich, 22 flats and diverse life, love and work experiences, to this moment in life, where the only thing certain is change.

And change is what my experiences have helped me to embrace, and what my working expertise and knowledge enable me to help others find in themselves.

Our body is constantly changing, adapting and renewing itself.

Thanks to Spatial Medicine /CPM Education© and Karin Locher, as well as Kinesis UK©, James Earls, Don Thompson, Wojciech Cackowski and Lou Benson I have learned to apply cutting edge science and discoveries in the world that is our human body to my movement and manual work with my clients and students.

As advanced Psych-K© facilitator, thanks to Brunhild Hofmann, I have tools in my toolbox that help changing belief systems.

I am grateful to be a teacher within the Spatial Medicine/ CPM education© faculty, a structural integrator of the KMI© community and a member of the Psych-K© family. All of which allow me to explore my own ways within our common denominators. It’s such an amazing playground to find oneself in.

The journey has just begun.

My way to Pilates was typical for a dancer: a back injury. Studying dance in London in the early nineties I first heard about the Pilates method. Back home in Switzerland, after giving birth to twin daughters, I ended up with a disc hernia. I was facing the prospect of having to give up dancing altogether. It was then that I started to train Pilates regularly, as it was the only one of the many „therapies“ I tried that gave me real results. Soon I was able to dance again. After that I became a Pilates teacher myself, completing the training for the Pilates Polestar method. But the two disciplines – dance and Pilates – continued to be separate planets.

During my dance career I also had Rolfing sessions. Therefore, when I saw the first workshops with Karin Locher announced, it immediately drew my attention. It turned out to be one of the key experiences of my life.

After two years of studying with CPM I got to the stage where there was no difference any more between my dance and my Pilates work. CPM fascial training connects science, art, psychology and spirituality. It is real holistic work.

My flamenco dance school exists since 30 years now and during the last year I started to create my own dance training – „DancEgrity“ (from „dance“ and „tensegrity“) – which integrates the knowledge gained from fascia research into dance movements in a creative manner, emphasising body-awareness  and drawing its energy out of the urge to move and the passion for dancing. Thanks to the knowledge gained in the last few years I continue to perform, dance and teach at an age when most dancers are already retired.
