Dorothee brings a sense of playfulness to the mat work that will make you feel like a kid again. Class with her can be deceiving, her pace never stops but she also doesn’t let you fling yourself around willy nilly, while thinking you’re getting it right. Instead, you’ll be paying so much attention to achieve what she’s asking for you’ll forget how hard you’re working, only to find out the next day when muscles you didn’t know you have tell the full story. This is a class that reminds you of how fantastic it is to have the ability to use your body fully. Filmed at Dorothee’s studio and teacher training center, Metropolitain Pilates, in Seattle, WA

    Wonderful in every way! I miss the snake and twist on the mat and I love the opposite head on the hip circles. It make so much sense because then you are advancing the corkscrew and the tick tock. Thank you Dorothee for sharing your brilliance, we appreciate it immensely!

    Oh, absolutely wonderful. You think you know Pilates, you think you’ve got this, but this comes and stretches and bends and plays with your body, proving that there’s always room for more learning. Beautiful. Thank you!

    What a pleasure it was to hear your voice Dorothee and have you teach me again, even tho not in the room I felt your direction. As one of your old students it was invigorating to
    Listen to how you playfully direct the method, I truly and inspired by you as always. Thank you thank you for sharing your technique and joy of pilates.
