She has worked as a Pilates trainer for the Staatstheater Kassel and the Tanztheater of the German National Theater Weimar, to name but a few. After 10 years of teaching in Germany, in 2008 she took a yearlong maternity leave. To this day, Ms Rohleder teaches at her studio along with various companies and institutions such as SAP and the Tanzfabrik Potsdam.
