What is the Pilates Classical Repertoire? I often get asked what the difference is between classical and dynamic Pilates. With the ever popular dynamic Pilates workout people are often confused unsure which Pilates method they should be doing. First, lets brieflylook at what Pilates is and how it became what it is today. Then I will explain the different styles. Continue reading Pilates Classical Repertoire
Neck Pain Pilates Exercises More and more people are experiencing neck pain at earlier ages. The use of smartphones, tablets and computers has our generation hunched over, especially young people. Look around on the street, in restaurants, on the buses or trains. From children to adults the percentage of people leaned over their phones with their head forwards is astonishing.

Strengthen Your Abdominal Core Musculature
Looks are important, but a stronger back, reduced back pain, spinal support, are some the benefits of Pilates training. First, lets talk about looks. Having a six-pack looks great but only when you have a slim waistline to go with the six-pack. Strong obliques and deep transversus abdominis muscles provide you with that narrow waistline. Of course, diet and low body fat must be in place. The six pack forms when you train your superficial rectus abdominis muscle that runs up and down the abdomen, not the sides. However, overtraining this muscle might cause muscle imbalances and your deeper muscles may still remain weak. Pilates exercise still trains your superficial muscles so that you can enjoy the six-pack look, but classical
Pilates preferentially recrtuits the deeper layers, so that you can strengthen from the deep core. This in turn this helps reduce the size of your waistline by giving you a corset-effect, as the fibres run horizontally and obliquely around your waist. Moreover, these deeper muscles help support your lower back and may help in reducing back pain.

What are the best Pilates classes in London? We believe that the best Pilates classes in London should offer superior quality, individualised attention and price. Our business model is based on small, intimate, attention to detail classes.
This means that your instructor should be educated, qualified and certified in Pilates, and have experience. Having said this, many Pilates studios in London offer Pilates classes, but their instructors are not necessarily qualified in Pilates. Yes, you read correctly. Some “Pilates” studios train their instructors in-house on a crash course and teach them a few circuit-type exercises on the equipment. The exercises are usually not found in the Pilates repertoire and you will be lead to believe that you are learning Pilates. Not only you will be missing out on the benefits of Pilates, but f you then go to a Pilates class anywhere else, you will be lost. Continue reading The Best Pilates Classes in London
Pilates vs bootcamp type reformer classes. Which is better?
It all depends on what you’re trying to achieve. You could ask yourself: weight lifting vs. ballet? The comparison is on different sets of exercise types with two completely different aims.

Pilates exercises are very core-centric. This means that are aimed to connect your abdominal muscles in anticipation of any movement. The result is a stronger core musculature, and a tighter waist line. The exercises also focus on improving body awareness and movement quality, which in turn improve your performance in any kind of sports activity you perform.

Why Are We Unique?
Top Pilates Instruction. We are a boutique studio offering Pilates Classes in Bayswater London, just minutes from the station.
Our instructors are fully certified STOTT Pilates. Unlike many other Pilates studios in the area which train their instructors in-house on a quickie weekend course, our instructors have achieved full certification from a worldwide education institution, taking months and sometimes years of training.
Our method incorporates new information as research evolves in sports science and physical therapy, but also preserves the original exercises from the classical Pilates method. The results speak for themselves. The difference is profound. Many other studios in London offer boot camp style circuit classes that teach you a few mono-planal moves and time you on a stopwatch while you repetitively workout to sweat. Pilates is completely different. The difficulty comes from the complexity of the exercises, the concentration, coordination, body awareness, body control, precision, fluidity. Intelligent exercise.
Small Classes means that you get the attention you deserve. Most studios have 10 reformer beds. Our classes have 5 at most. They feel like semi private sessions.
