I've been doing sports since I can remember and I love motivating others to exercise. In order to share my enthusiasm for good workouts outside of my circle of friends, Pop Pilates Vienna was founded in February 2018 - originally also for me as a balance to my freelance job in advertising. I can hardly believe what has developed from it since then:

I would never have thought that after only two years I would have the best team of five great people by my side, to see our community constantly grow or to have thought it possible to develop our own formats (hello "Soulmoves") ...

But all of that happened, and with that, The Happy Place was born in March 2020: The logical development for us from Pop Pilates Vienna, which we have clearly outgrown. I don't take any of these for granted - and that's why I'm all the more looking forward to the positive feedback and to being able to continue exercising, sweating and growing with you on a regular basis. :)

A place where I can just feel good in my own body. A place where I can leave any discomfort with the way I look or the way I move at the door. I searched for this place for a long time, but never found it. Physical education in school was torture for me. So, by horrific interactions with my body and mind, I tried to achieve an appearance that promised to solve all of these problems. But it didn't.

After a long search I finally have a relationship with me that makes me feel invincible and valuable at all times. Now my classes should be the place for you that I hadn't found for a long time. Each and every one of you has a place to just be who they are. You should be able to listen to your body and react and do what feels good and right to you. We also have a lot of fun and get to know and love each other a little better with every class. I look forward to all our classes together, to sweating, laughing, exercising and motivating.

For me, sport, exercise and meditation have become an integral part of my life. It is so good to experience body and mind in harmony and to do something good for yourself. Perceiving and feeling your own body, listening to it, exploring limits and at the same time learning what we need right now - getting to know yourself a little better every day and finding yourself, that is what I would like to pass on in my lessons. If we give ourselves this time and practice this form of self-care by taking a step on the mat, we create our own little feel-good space – where it can really only be about us.

I look forward to creating this "Happy Place" together with you.

Inspiring and motivating people is what drives me - and through my lessons I hope to kindle this spark of enthusiasm for movement in you. In my childhood and youth, I made experiences with performance-oriented sport in the area of floor and apparatus gymnastics and thus got to know what sport feels like when performance is in the foreground. I've always asked myself: "Why can't movement just be fun?"

In my Pop Pilates lessons, the focus is on having fun –because I also felt inspired by this joy and this energy has permeated through my entire life since then.

Let's find this energy and our "happy place" together –I'm looking forward to intense, sweaty and inspiring hours with you! :)

I believe that creative expression and physical movement are important for every human, every body. For me, mental health and physical exercise are intrinsically linked.

My life has revolved around movement and dance from the moment I took my first dance class at three years old. I have taught tumbling classes for children, was part of an aerial dance troupe in my teens, and was a competitive Irish dancer until the age of 20.

I first started attending Pop Pilates classes when I moved to Vienna and was looking for a way to socialize and stay fit. The class was so fun, Kathi radiated joy the entire time she was teaching, and I walked away smiling in a way that I hadn’t in a long time! As I continued attending classes, I realized this form of exercise that has been so vital to my own well-being and happiness the past few years is something that I want to bring to other people’s lives, too. My goal for my class is that you walk away feeling stronger, happier, and more mindful with yourself than you did before.

I can’t wait to see  you on the mat!

My relation to sport has not always been positive. It wasn't until my exchange year in the USA that with swimming I found a sport that I was really good at. Since then I have been very active and, in addition to years of club sport, I also spent an intense time in the gym. However, my body had suffered a few injuries from exercising too much. Looking for something to replace weight training, I found POP Pilates. To sustainably strengthen every muscle with your own body weight, to minimize the risk of injury and to achieve a really good body feeling, that was it - the perfect sport for me!

My path should inspire you and show you that you can treat your body with Pilates, only need yourself to change something, can really go crazy and have fun at the same time! I look forward to sharing my passion for this workout with you guys!
