Originally from Switzerland, Beat was first introduced to Pilates during his studies as a dancer in England in 1990. A skilled mover in various styles and techniques, dance took him around Europe, Israel and as far away as Jamaica and Cuba. Yet another contract as a dancer brought him to Japan, where he still resides today. He re-discovered Pilates and obtained his Polestar certification in 2008. Currently Beat teaches at Pilates Lab in Fukuoka and Tokyo Japan, where he holds the position of the technical director since 2008.
Beat became an authorized Polestar educator in 2012.
In addition to conducting Polestar certification courses, Beat has also presented at numerous Polestar Pilates seminars and conventions in Tokyo and Fukuoka in 2008, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. Presenting workshops and masterclasses in mat and equipment Pilates, has enabled Beat to hone his considerable skills as a presenter.
A consummate movement specialist, Beat is also qualified as a GYROTONIC© Level 1 teacher, Marie-Jose Blom Pilates Leadership Concepts (PLC), the Franklin method and Core Align.
