In this balanced Studio workout, Hanna looks at how the Pilates ball (physio ball) can add variety and fun to a Reformer Tower session.

Hanna Dalsgard has been teaching Pilates since 1998. Her career in movement began at an early age with gymnastics and dance training on the Faroe Islands and in Denmark. This led to her gaining an Honours Degree in Contemporary Arts (Dance) from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance, University of Leeds.
Hanna qualified with Body Control Pilates in 2002 and went on to become one of the first teachers to complete her Body Control Pilates Studio Master Certification. She is hugely passionate about Pilates and this shows in her work as the Body Control Pilates Education Partner and course tutor for the Nordic countries.
A few years ago, Hanna enrolled at CHEK Institute, San Diego and is now the only woman in Denmark (and one of seven worldwide), who is qualified as a Master CHEK and Holistic Lifestyle Coach (Level 3). She uses her growing knowledge as a movement specialist, therapist and bodyworker as tools to work more in depth with her clients and to find into the root of their blockages or injuries. She has found that linking these techniques, alongside the Body Control Pilates method, is extremely beneficial and that clients really get results and understand their bodies better.
Hanna runs special workshops and masterclasses for other teachers and therapists on a regular basis. Her passion lies in working in-depth with the simplest exercises as the more she learns, the more she realises the importance of the simplest exercises - less is more!
