Ami is the head and heart of Remedy. Born in the USA and now living in her adoptive home city of Berlin, she is a certified trainer for Pilates, Yoga and Body-Mind-Coaching. She also continues to enjoy a successful career as a dancer, performing artist, choreographer and writer in Berlin and Paris since 1988. The idea of combining the three systems – Pilates, Yoga and Bodywork – under one roof is based on her own personal story:
Already as a young child Ami was a competitive gymnast, until a series of injuries to her back and neck left her partially paralyzed. As a result, standing up straight caused her tremendous Through intensive private Pilates training she was finally able to find relief from pain and recovered a full range of mobility that she had not had since the age of 14. Convinced of the Pilates training potential, Ami studied and taught for seven years under the guidance of Eduardo Laranjeira in Berlin; she continued to accumulate various Pilates qualifications alongside Michael Fritz, Ton Voogt and Amy Alpers. She studied and practiced Yoga for 14 years in Iyengar and Vinyasa Flow and completed her teacher training education with Cyndi Lee. In addition, Ami studied further developing techniques like touch therapy technique, re-structuring, release technique as well as voice and breathing techniques.
