GYROTONIC® Level 1 Instructor
Pilates & Yoga Instructor
Angelika Dickeson is originally from Germany, and moved to Maui, Hawaii in 1998. She began with classical ballet training at an early age, then jazz and modern dance before she was 13 years old. After raising her only son, she began pursuing dance and was a lead dancer in the hip hop dance group, “Function.” She was also part of several public performances at the Iao Theatre.
After suffering a minor knee injury, which influenced her to give up classic ballet, Angelika developed an interest in Pilates and Yoga. In 2005, she began deeply studying yoga with Mirka Kraftsow, followed by her studies and teaching with Ted Surman of Maui’s Yoga Awareness program. The practice of Yoga helped Angelika find an intimate contact to the body, mind and soul.
Pilates ultimately helped Angelika to fully heal her knee. She has studied Pilates with renowned New York City pilates dance instructor Anita Jackson (2003), and Maui’s renowned Caleb Rhodes. In 2007, she completed her Pilates Instructor certification through the Ellie Herman Teacher Training Program, and has taught Pilates in Maui ever since.
Angelika’s love for movement inspired her to try the Gyrotonic method. She is currently certified as a Level 1 Gyrotonic Instructor. In addition, she has also completed Specialized Master Trainer Juergen Bamberger’s Gyrotonic Psoas Principles Course in Miami in December 2015, as well as the Gyrotonic Jumping Stretching Board training with Karen Mullen in October of 2016.
Angelika’s passion and history of dance has blossomed into a strong interest for healing others through movement. She works in a focused manner to assist clients’ individual needs. Plus, Angelika can teach you a little German, yah!
