Originally from Augsburg, Ferdinand was trained there and in Stuttgart (John-Cranko-Academy) as a classical stage dancer. During his active dancer career with engagements in Dresden, Magdeburg, Halle and Berlin, he already practiced Pilates after Polstar.
Ferdinand lives in Berlin since 2008. Here the Pilates-method gained a special status for him during his transition phase from dancer to therapist (medical Massage/Hydrotherapist and Physiotherapist).
Pilates helps him to keep his body fit and to prevent injuries and pain after his professional dancer career. Also for his work as a therapist he finds the Pilates method to be a big enrichment.
He has been BASI-mat certified since March 2018.
