what we do
"Change happens through movement and movement heals" - Joseph Pilates
The low impact nature of pilates and the endless amounts of variations offered allow individuals with limits to strengthen their bodies. If you suffer from back injuries, health complications or restricted movement, you can find healing in Pilates.
Pilates is particularly beneficial for office workers who spend too much time at their desk and experience lower back or joint pain due to bad posture. Manual workers also benefit as they learn how to use their core central system properly to avoid injuries and misalignment.
Coordinating between breath and spine stabilisation, while simultaneously moving arms and legs, connects the brain to a physical full-body workout. You will find an unlimited source of benefits in Pilates including stress relief, increased strength, improved cognitive abilities and enhanced mood.
meet the team
Cloud, Anett and Sarah met as Pilates students and are qualified Balanced Body Pilates teachers. They have continued to stay together to create unique, well-structured Pilates programmes, adapting and blending different styles, so that classes always stay interesting and enjoyable.
Cloud (aka Claudia), started pilates in
2007 due to severe sciatic nerve and back pain. After consulting with many doctors she realised the only way to properly heal was through a lifestyle change and regular exercise. She can now testify that Pilates has given her back her happiness and life back.
Claudia likes to focus on
connecting breath with movement to strengthen the core and support the spine and is a qualified Balance Body instructor,
Anett’s been practicing Pilates
for over six years and from the
very beginning she always wanted
to take it further and become an instructor. She is now a qualified Balanced Body instructor.
Anett lives by her own words,
"Any exercise can strengthen your muscles. A full exercise will strengthen your body.
A full exercise with a presence,
Sarah started pilates three and
a half years ago at the suggestion
of her osteopath and instantly
fell in love with the practice.
Finding it strengthened her
body, lessened her pain and gave
her back the joy of movement, she decided to undertake her teaching training to share Pilates with the rest of the world.
Sarah is now also qualifying to become a yoga teacher.
"Claudia has a warm, open, friendly personality. So when she's telling
you to keep that pose just a little longer with your abs burning, you do it.
This is a great way to push yourself. I did a series of 1 to 1 classes with her and started as a beginner.
I feel I progressed well with her instruction. Since then I've kept up my Pilates
and would credit her for such a lovely introduction.
I highly recommend you try her classes".
Shaheed Ismail, Business Analyst at RPMI Railpen
My first experience to Pilates was by an instructor who didn’t really challenge me. I thought adding another Pilates class by a different instructor would give me a good challenge. Oh boy! I thought I knew what to expect when I attended Cloud’s Pilates class but this was something else! Jokes aside, I thoroughly enjoyed Cloud’s classes. A good Pilates sweat! Every week was a new workout that made the entire class discover muscles we didn’t know even existed. She has become the standard for any Pilates class I would ever take anywhere in the world I would visit. And during her classes she makes you mentally understand with her cues of how the breathe is supposed to help with the movements. Every class is an awesome challenge that I would always recommend to anyone. Thank you so much Cloud!
