Body Insight

Pilates

is a gentle yet precise method of strengthening your deep muscles, refining your perception, optimizing your posture and improving your overall movement quality. For every age – from beginners, to experts!

Yoga

helps you gain better concentration, mindful breathing and more respect for yourself, your own body and the people around you. We will concentrate on strength, stretching, relaxation, movement flow as well as how to connect and keep a healthy of your everyday life.

Pilates for pregnant women and mothers

pregnancy, childbirth and life as a mother bring great joys and great challenges at the same time. Together we will improve your self-perception, stimulate your muscle tone, strengthen your inner muscles and create a pleasant body overall experience with a holistic training program.

Meditation

will make you master the practice of emptiness. Get to know your mind, free yourself from entrenched behavior patterns and rediscover your everyday life with a whole new quality of mindfulness.

ZEN-Shiatsu

is a traditional form of body therapy developed in Japan. With this system of energetic bodywork, we will support you in recharging your energy and increasing your energy flow to free yourself from pent-up and stuck emotions.

SmartSpine

is Pilates combined with soothing warmth – providing well-being, alignment of your spine and relaxation of your shoulder and neck area. We will ease the everyday columns off your spine, strengthen your sensory perception and increase the overall performance of your body and your mind.

Pilates teacher training

is offered by me in comfortable small groups. It includes Pre- and Pilates mat exercises and relevant lessons of practical knowledge in order for you to become a well-rounded teacher.

Tango

is based entirely on your natural body movement. This way, we will restore your body coordination and develop your personal power of expression.

Pilates / Yoga therapy

is a health-oriented lifestyle concept for those who suffer from pain every day, had severe injuries or other special conditions. What is different about my approach is that you learn how to activate your self-healing powers in order to recover faster – anytime and anywhere.

Body psychotherapy

is a journey to your inner most self. We will immerse ourselves in different emotional states to find out what really matters in the now and what is only a tenacious shadow of the past. This way, you will be able to better understand your own behavior, more clearly recognize the origin of your beliefs and dissolve your emotional blockages.

The "BALLance" concept

Working with the BALLance balls is pure relief for the muscles of the back and the intervertebral discs. The back can be mobilized and elongated in a very gentle way. Fixed vertebral segments can be deblocked and tensions released. Lightness, rest, posture, breathing and sleep are positively influenced and holistic changes are quickly perceived.

Systemic kinesiology taping

A holistic approach to a problem, which is not just about the pain issue. Body, mind and soul are central elements involved in this taping treatment. Kinesiology is the diagnostic method with which muscle tests can detect and treat dysfunctions. As a result: Stimuli are inhibited and stimulated, muscle tone is regulated, passive support for damaged tendons or ligaments and pain can be reduced.

About me

Anja Kursawe

 

I am a native and widely travelled personal trainer and teacher in the field of Pilates and yoga, Tango, Zen- Shiatsu and body psychotherapy from Berlin.

My passion for the body in movement began as a young acrobat in East Berlin and led me to study dance in London. Next to the rigid dance training I became more and more interested in gentle methods like Pilates and Yoga in 1990. Numerous advanced trainings in Pilates, Yoga, body therapy, psychotherapy and many other areas followed and my fascination for the interplay between body and mind grew strong.

My method is based on the basic principles and philosophies of Pilates, Yoga and Shiatsu – but reaches far beyond that. Thanks to my interdisciplinary knowledge and over 15 years of experience of supporting people from different fields of life, I am able to recognize the most important resources and challenges and can cater to them intuitively and individually.

Deeply touched, proud and with a great sense of responsibility I received the NEOS AWARD 2017 in the female category best personal trainer.

"The constant deepening of our body awareness, the ambition of living a more conscious life, the further empowerment of our mind are part of a journey that never ends. If we remain open in our hearts and with ourselves we have the opportunity to rediscover the very essence that makes us who we are."

Quotes

"Working with Anja, I experience inner stability, strength and peace – all of which are very important for me as an actress and a mother in my private and professional life. My body posture and shape feels more upright and better toned. Anja is an artist sparking lots of spontaneity and creativity that she uses to individually cater to my personal needs and we laugh a lot together. With her I am able to take a break from everyday life and build up new strength to master the challenges of life."

A. Griesbach

"After many years of complications, including surgery and movement restrictions on my knee, I felt that my body had let me down for good. To my surprise and thanks to Anja, I could built more strength and agility than I could imagine having ever again. My knee pain is finallly a thing of the past! Whether I’m doing Pilates, yoga or shiatsu – Anja has given me back the confidence that I’m able to get past even the most unfortunate setbacks."
