I am Claudia Buehrer and I am the founder of Create Movement Pilates.
Originally from the beautiful Black Forest in South Germany, I migrated to Australia over 16 years ago. I have always lived a very active life cycling, hiking, dancing and in particular snowboarding and skiing, having lived in the Swiss Alps for many years.
However, it was after suffering from a back injury in 2007 that I was first introduced to Pilates. It was the key to my healing and rehabilitation and it unlocked the door to a lifelong love and passion.
I completed my Certificate 4 and Diploma of Contemporary Pilates and Teaching Methodology with Art of Motion Australia. In 2016, I completed further training in Slings Myofascial Training® and Diploma Slings Myofascial Training®. This is a unique training that focuses on postural balance and movement efficiency through promoting qualities of the connective tissue system.
My focus lies in further study and developing Pilates techniques that will ensure my classes are kept current and continuously evolving, with focus on the individual needs of my clients.
I have worked as a Pilate’s teacher at an Osteopathic clinic in Melbourne and a Physiotherapy/Pilates studio in Perth, so I am very experienced in working with clients who suffer from injuries, as well as both pre and postnatal Pilates, a facet of my work that I particularly love.
2014 – 2017
I was very committed, attending weekend courses in woman’s health, workshops with Continuum Movement whose founder is Emily Conrad. I also studied the Garuda method, founded by James De Silva. I started my education in Pathway in Slings Myofascial training with Art of Motion Academy in 2014. I continued working for Anne Tetlow Pilates in a fully equipped movement studio.
So now I was specialised in Pilates, the Garuda method and in the techniques of the Osteopathic Clinic in Sandringham. I had a broad client base and this made me able to be adaptive to any type and style of teaching. In 2014 my website came alive, and in 2015 I found a new direction, leaving the clinical environment and opening up my homebased studio.
In 2014-2016 whilst focusing on my diploma, I started offering workshops and masterclasses, to promote the Slings Myofascial Training. I also used my knowledge of holistic and contemporary movement practice. With this style of teaching I saw amazing results in my clients. The Slings Myofascial Training work is so profound it has changed my way of my teaching.
I opened the door to a bigger studio on Bluff Road in Sandringham. I created a wonderful space and it became a popular hub for holistic health and movement. In collaborating with local health practitioners, Create Movement offered a broad range of classes and events.
The best part of my work is helping participants to find freedom in movement, lifting their spirits and sharing the knowledge that I gained over the years under influences of many great teachers and lecturers.
I am committed to my daily practice Pilates and Slings. My own interests lie in Nutrition and Ayurveda. My hobbies are cycling, tai chi and taekwondo. I favour trips to mountains and forest, as living near the sea, I feel drawn to the countryside for a change.
If you wish to join me for upcoming events head to the events page, or simple check out the time table and locations from where I offer my classes from July 2020 onward.
With the closing of the studio on Bluff Road in March 2020, I am able to offer my classes in different suburbs, and can concentrate on my further studies.
I can’t wait to meet you and guide you through a holistic and mindful movement practice!
