About Us

Welcome! Here at LB Pilates Studios in Biel, Switzerland, you will feel professional competence melded with genuine enthusiasm and caring for your health that will inspire your dedication to the Pilates Method. Whether new to Pilates or ready to reconnect after a hiatus, your fitness needs will be both addressed and understood.

Pilates is a method of exercise that trains the entire body while being gentle on the joints. The stretching of muscles occurs simultaneously while the body is being strengthened. Pilates develops lengthened muscles and fluid movements. It is a very efficient and effective way to exercise whose benefits can be enjoyed on their own, as a means of cross-training for other sports or as an overall enhancement to one’s quality of life.

We offer sports-specific Pilates training, such as Pilates for rowing, golf and tennis. Pilates is excellent for postural corrections, as in the case of dancers as well as musicians.

Your personal health, happiness and success through the Pilates method is this studio’s goal. All ages welcome! Youth and teenagers encouraged. Training from the most basic, inexperienced client to the advanced level and highly athletic. All your Pilates needs can be met through LB Pilates Studios.

For additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us either by phone or email.
