The ultimate design in body exercise transforming your body shape, The Lotte Berk Technique is programmed to work all your muscles. Lotte Berk, the originator and founder of her techniques, trained as a modern ballet dancer. Many of her exercises have been inspired by dance. She uses floor work and bar work. Her exercises are specially designed for non-dancers to enjoy and achieve. These remarkable exercises are for women who are serious about their fitness and their figures, who want results. Lotte believed that the class emphasis should be on fun, having a laugh. Exercise she says can be so boring and she certainly succeeded with her sharp wit and humour.
Lotte Berk came to Britain in 1938, fleeing from Nazi Germany and, from a basement in the West End, founded an exercise method for women derived from ballet training.
Her natural and naughty wit, her straight talk and her no-nonsense attitude won her many admirers.
She was responsible for introducing the pelvic-tilt exercise that has now become so popular in workouts, and insisted on referring to it as “the lovemaking position”. If a student had problems with the maneuver, Lotte would ask with wide-eyed wonder: How is your sex life?
