Bianka Steinfeldt, originally from Austria, started taking ballet and movement classes when she was six years old. She danced in the cities of Bregenz, Dornbirn, and Vienna. She also holds a business and design degree. Bianka was introduced to Pilates after experiencing health issues and fell in love with the method. Movement heals!
After moving to the United States, Bianca discovered Power Pilates, which uses the classical Pilates method with flow and she received her mat and full-equipment certification. Following, she successfully completed a two-year Pilates Master Mentor Program with Pilates Elder Lolita San Miguel and is now a second-generation Pilates Master.
Bianca’s passion for movement and healing led her to become a certified Integrative Movement Specialist (IMS). She is also ELDOA-certified (Elongation Longitudinaux avec Decoaption Osteo Articulaire). The ELDOA technique uses innovative exercises and postures to relieve pressure and increase blood flow in the body. Bianca incorporates these methods into her practice. She is also a Reiki Master and is trained in Access Bar/Access Foundation techniques and Sattva Meditation, which she studied in the Himalayas in India. Bianca is always seeking new challenges and continues to extend her education from venues around the world.

ELDOA – Myofascial Stretching
“ELDOA” is a French acronym for Elongation Longitudinaux avec Decoaption Osteo Articulaire, which largely translates to myofascial stretching. The ELDOA method, created by world-renowned osteopath Guy Voyer, DO, consists of postures that target specific joints or spinal segments to relieve pressure and restore blood flow. Benefits include increased flexibility, improved muscle performance and tone, reduced stress and joint inflammation, improved posture, relieved chronic and acute back pain, improved awareness and overall wellness. Join me for this inspiring group class.
Love Yourself Movement Meditation
I invite you to first make yourself uncomfortable to become comfortable with yourself. There is a saying: “True happiness comes from within. You are the only one who can make yourself happy.” Let’s move together to open our hearts to a greater degree for ourselves and others, and then find the quietness for expansion.
Reiki Chakra Meditation
Chakra (chakra in Sanskrit) means “wheel” and refers to energy points in your body. They are thought to be spinning disks of energy that should stay “open” and aligned, as they correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of our energetic body that affect our emotional and physical well-being. By meditating on the chakras, our universal life force energizes these centers, providing deep relaxation, healing, and strength. In this class, you will learn the proper hand placement for each chakra. Through guided meditation, you can create a feeling of well-being and strength.
Pilates, Level I & II
Joseph Pilates created the fundamentals of Pilates over one hundred years ago. This mat class incorporates his teaching of mat work to both beginner and intermediate students. We will follow his principles and add some creativity to the class. Your body alignment will improve to enhance breathing, circulation, flexibility, balance, muscle tone, energy, and mental concentration.
Pilates mat work also helps with the prevention of, and the recovery from, injuries, by letting your mind and body connect with every breath and movement.
