Evelyne Besser

Director and owner of CITYPILATES

lululemon Ambassador since 2017.

What brought you to pilates?

During my stay in Hawaii in 2004, my host mother took me to her Pilates class. I was so fascinated by Pilates that I started to train with a DVD everyday, and never stopped since.


What do you like about it?

The holistic movement method combines and promotes the strength, mobility and the structural balance of the body. This allows the training to be varied and individual. Thanks to the conscious breathing, the mind is always integrated , so that after the workout I feel not only strengthened but also balanced and relaxed.


Why did you become an instructor?

To experience daily the benefits of the Pilates training on a mental and physical level gave me the motivation to learn more about it. I wanted to support other people with an individual training adjusted to their needs. All the happy faces and a body free of pain from my clients show me how unique and holistic the Pilates training is.


Whats special about your way of teaching?

Top priority for me and CITYPILATES is personal and professional support, as well as fun and joy during the workout. With a lot of conviction and enthusiasm I teach the Pilates method. I can teach gently and precisely, but I also level up, so that your muscles start to burn and you'll feel them like you've never felt them before.
