We offer classes for all levels and it's essential that all clients start with a Beginners class to ensure that they learn the basics before progressing to more advanced levels.
Beginners – designed to introduce you to the fundamental concepts and principles of the Pilates Method. This involves learning and practising core strength awareness, muscular flexibility, joint mobility and postural alignment.
Improvers (Level 2) - once you have established an understanding of the method, we aim to challenge you by teaching a flowing practice. These classes focus on improving your awareness of your personal strengths and weaknesses so you can refine and progress.
Yogalates – a Hybrid class incorporating yoga and Pilates open to all levels. A class that fuses the dynamic elements of yoga with the stabilising and strengthening elements of pilates practice. This class is designed for those that want to be a little more physically active and incorporates standing strength work and Yogic Sun salutations in addition to Pilates matwork based exercises

Pilates can be for anyone and everyone.
My teaching journey started 12 years ago while working as an investment banker in the city, back then Pilates and yoga helped me to counterbalance a stressful job. After 3 years I then decided to leave the banking behind to go and explore the world. After years of travelling and learning from great teachers like Alex Medin, Iain Clark, Dena Kingsberg and Kathryn Budig I am now a registered yoga teacher under the Yoga Alliance UK. My pilates journey started even earlier when at the age of 21 I left my dance career to focus on my studies and Pilates has been the natural development.
I have been teaching since 2006 with various methods but namely Ashtanga,Yin, Vinyasa Flow and Pilates. Most of my teaching experience is based in the Dolomites mountains where I have been working closely with professional climbers and skiers preparing for an expedition on the Himalaya, working on Pranayama exercises to adjust to altitude and relaxing techniques.
I am an enthusiast of people and enjoy sharing the experience and knowledge I have gained so far. My energetic and vigorous style is influenced by my passion for dance and for the outdoors. As a former corporate professional I understand the importance of a Pilates class that balances stress release and building of stamina.
I place particular attention to alignment and details but never forgetting the importance of enjoying it, having fun and practising with a smile.
