After a long career in the theater as a dancer, teacher, and choreographer, Helen now teaches Pilates. Having a family at the end of her career, it seemed the only logical thing to change focus and begin a new, quieter way of life. Helen and Eric opened Cardiff Pilates Studio with the intention of settling down there, but life took another turn and lured them away to the beautiful countryside in rural France. Three years ago, they launched The Field. Based in an old farmhouse, The Field is an amazing place, filled with regenerative energy, and tranquility.
Eric was trained as a Pilates instructor in New York by Fran Lehen, herself a student of Carola Strauss (one of Joseph Pilates' original students). He has been an instructor for almost 20 years, first at Fran's studio in New York, followed by his own studio in Copenhagen, then together with Helen at Cardiff Pilates Studio, and now at The Field. As an ex-modern dancer, dance teacher, masseur, and yoga teacher, he has a great understanding of different body types and individual needs. He has been particularly successful helping clients with spinal problems.

Both Pilates and Yoga classes were carefully planned, perfectly challenging and included personal coaching. Before I had done pilates for a year and now I'm really excited about both Helen's pilates and Eric's yoga. And to crown all, we enjoyed delicious food and warm atmosphere. I'm definitely going back again.
