Birthe BrosolatFranklin Method Educator Level 2, reg. 11/2018 Freelance Movement Educator & Facilitator – Pilates teacher – Pilates teacher trainer
I am passionate about movement and about teaching and have taught movement for more than 35 years – mainly moderne dance and ballet and since 2008 pilates.
Certified as Matwork and Studio Equipment Master Teacher from Body Control Pilates, I am currently teaching as a freelance pilates teacher in the Copenhagen area. Furthermore, I teach on Body Control Pilates’ teacher training programme in Scandinavia.
As a movement educator it is important to me to teach HOW an exercise is done and not to focus on the instruction of the exercise only. This means that I see myself more as a movement facilitator guiding an exercise in such a way that I teach about the design of our body at the same time.
In my classes, I try to focus on stimulating both the body and the mind which I believe is the main way to create sustainable change in how to move more functionally and efficiently.
As a person I am happy and positive. I believe in enjoying life and including movement in your life and have fun while moving.

Catherine ChevalierFranklin Method Educator Level 1 reg. 12/2010 Holistic Health Trainer
I have been a professional actor, singer and dancer. I am trained in the Franklin Method and in EFT.
My aim is to educate people in a clear, simple and informed way about how their bodies should work so that they can lead vital, energetic lives. We can all recognize the ease with which children move. Their bodies are unburdened by the stress caused by the physical or mental issues we acquire as we grow older. I address these issues by making extensive use of visualization techniques to promote correct, natural posture and movement, which enhances the flow of energy around the body. I also use techniques to address energy blockages that can also impair this flow. Together they are powerful tools that are easy to learn and to practice at home.

She had to find solutions and discovered the whole Somatics world. Fasciatherapy, Pilates, Feldenkrais, Alexander, Hanna Somatics and Sensorial Gymnastics… To name but a few. Besides her Mind-Body interest , she started an autodidact learning of Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics with hunger. On her path she had the honor to met Eric Franklin and the Franklin Method.

With the FM she not only recovered and returned to stage, she improved her technique and found her own singularity. She created her last show in 2016, « Anamnèse » , which the whole process of creation was based on DNI. As a result of this incredible experience, Claudine became a certified Pilates teacher, Franklin Method educator, a certified Pilates teacher and an Ilan Lev therapist. She began to invest her own flavour, her own creative way to approach people with the aim of optimizing functions using Movement, making people discover their anatomy & inner « rules » and spreading the word of DNI technique.
Claudine is coaching and training today people from all ages and all backgrounds. Working on their postures and bringing them the tools they need to accomplish their personal and professional goals.
