The foundations of Pilates method and basic movements are introduced and learned in the beginner-level classes. The practice strengthens the core and creates length and balance. The classes aresuitable for everyone interested in Pilates.
Basic level (marked with P)
The basic-level classes are suitable for clients who have taken part in a beginners’ course and practiced in beginner-level classes for at least one season. The tempo of basic-level classes is moderate and new movements are introduced through progressions.
Intermediate level (marked with K)
Intermediate-level classes are suitable for clients who are familiar with the Pilates method and have been practicing consistently. More movements from the original mat or apparatus repertoire are introduced and students will deepen their understanding of the method throughout the practice.
Advanced level (marked with J)
Challenging classes ares suitable for clients who have practiced Pilates regularly and consistently for some time, and are already familiar with the classical movement repertoire on the mat or with equipment. In the advanced-level classes tempo is maintained in between movements through controlled transitions.
Pilates Mat classes follow the original fitness system created by Joseph Pilates and this work is taught in all levels of classes, progressing from beginner to intermediate and advanced. Build a strong foundation in beginner and basic classes, as the rhythm and intensity of the practice tends to increase towards intermediate exercises.
If you have special needs, or if you are pregnant or recovering postpartum, it is advised to book one-on one sessions. Please discuss with your teacher or email us for any questions.
In Pilates Apparatus classes we train with Gratz Pilates equipment (e.g. the Reformer, Mat, Spine Corrector) based on original measurements designed by Joseph Pilates. The Apparatus classes follow the classical movement repertoire, and practice is done in small groups of 2-5 people.
Please note: class called PILATES K is an intermediate/advanced practice, where practitioners use all the apparatus in the studio and work independently with their own programme. Before enrolling for PILATES, we recommend you to practice both Pilates Apparatus and Mat classes in the basic level.
Our Yoga classes are suitable for everyone regardless of age, fitness, or mobility. Yoga practice develops control and flexibility and eases the busy mind. You will find dynamic Flow Yoga and a more restorative Flow & Yin (90 min) from our weekly schedule. Our Yoga trained teachers help you to consider the individual needs and requirements of your own body.
Barre is an energetic, musical workout that combines ballet, Pilates and cardio. Movements are simple and effective for a stronger core, glutes and legs. Our Barre instructors are Total Barre® certified.

Body care & mobility class is led by a physio therapist. The 90 min class includes movement and core-strength exercise, as well as deep and dynamic stretching.
