– In the 1950s, with the help of an osteopath, she developed a series of exercises that were based on her experience with dancing. Similar to Pilates and yoga, the Lotte Berk method concentrates on targeting specific areas for strength and flexibility training. Working from the “core” provides an intensive workout and promotes the growth of muscle tissue, which burns calories at a faster rate than fatty tissue. (Wikipedia)
