Tina is the founder and creator of the Potensia®Method™.
And although Swedish, Tina has made Norway her home having now lived there since 1976.Tina studied film science, social anthropology and pedagogy at the University of Stockholm before going on to study physiotherapy in Oslo.
As a qualified physiotherapist, in 1980, Tina began working with dancers at The Norwegian Opera and Ballet, before progressing into teaching students Functional Dance Anatomy at the National Ballet Academy. As an Assistant Professor, Tina continued her lectures until 2018.
In addition to her successful career as an assistant professor, Tina has written books on several subjects including functional dance anatomy and the Potensia®Method™.
In 1990, Tina had the opportunity to travel to the USA to study Pilates and the training technique. Over a period of 16 years, Tina developed a special instruction methodology which is called the Universal Hessel Method = UHM® Pilates.
This method is about how one, as the receiver of the taught movement, can master the movements in a quick and correct manner due to how the brain receives information through the ears, eyes and movements.
Fascinated by how the brain works, Tina began to learn about NLP and started training to become a Practitioner In 1999 in NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming).
The Potensia®Method™.is built upon Tina’s knowledge on the interaction between the physical body and our senses in relation to internal communication with ourselves. It is this that characterizes our communication with the surrounding world.
When we can communicate with ourselves so that we achieve what we want and think in the form of goal-oriented actions, we no longer need to use much unnecessary energy on things we actually do not want.
The Potensia®Method™ evolved up through the years as Tina observed her clients find their path to move forward through the tools she provided them with. It is a life-long exiting game for those who have started on this journey.
During Tina’s time at the Opera, she also opened her own clinic in Oslo. Specializing in dance medicine, physiotherapy, acupuncture and massage therapy treatment.
They gave classes for those who came to train Pilates and educated instructors in the UHM® Pilates technique and also offered Potensia® coaching, both one to one and for groups.
Tina continues to focus her teaching on UHM® Pilates and Potensia® both online and offline in her own studio.
