About Us

Workout

The Internet is full of Pilates workouts, and many fitness and yoga apps also offer Pilates content. It’s very likely you’ve tried some of these options, but maybe were left a bit confused. Did I do this right? It felt kind of easy?

If the exercises felt easy, most likely the technique was not explained properly. When you perform Pilates exercises correctly, you really feel it in your core. In Pilates we engage our deeper core muscles (TVA and lumbar multifidus) and our pelvic floor, all while adopting a certain breathing technique (lateral thoracic breathing). In addition, we want to make sure our spine is aligned correctly. You won’t intuitively know how to do these just because the teacher on YouTube says “Engage your core”! You need taught how to. If an exercise you tried felt easy, the odds are you didn't quite know how to engage the muscles Pilates wants to strengthen.

Let's fix that!

CLASS STRUCTURE: Anna designs a progressive 8-week class plan (a Block) for Pilates where you learn a set of exercises. The intensity and the difficulty level increase each week. We also use optional props and small equipment to vary the exercises. Barre exercises change gradually as weeks go by.

How are the classes structured?

RECOVERY WEEK: Rest is as important as exercise! Week 8 of a Block is a recovery week (for you and for Anna!). There are only one or two live online classes on, and we recommend you focus on taking classes from the Body Conditioning & Recovery section of the Video Library. New videos are not published during a recovery week.

What is the Recovery Week?

DIFFICULTY LEVELS: Our levels are based on your Pilates experience. Level 1 is Beginner, Level 2-3 is Improver-Intermediate and Level 3-4 is Intermediate-Advanced. Barre and Conditioning classes are suitable for all levels, Barre+Core and Full Body Burn ideally for level 2+.  We will help you find the right level for you if you have any previous Pilates experience. More info on levels here!

What are the difficulty levels?

BEGINNERS ARE WELCOME! In addition to the Premium Live Online Beginner classes, we have a video series for Beginners: Strong Foundations 1 & 2. To learn the basic technique and alignment, join a live online Premium Pilates Basics class. You'll also find all the technical points explained here. We will also help you know when you're ready for Level 2-3. 

I'm a complete beginner, is that ok?

2 TYPES OF LIVE CLASSES:

Follow along: You follow Anna performing all the exercises These classes are also recorded and make up the On-Demand Video Library.

PREMIUM: These classes are interactive. You get individual feedback and corrections, just like in a physical studio class so you know you'll be performing all the exercises correctly.

How are Premium live online classes different?

BODY CONDITIONING & RECOVERY: Our relaxing Massage & Stretch and Mobility classes help melt away muscle tension and improve your mobility and flexibility. They also speed up your recovery between the strengthening classes. For best results, we recommend you purchase a hedgehog and a foam roller. Check our Equipment Recommended section! 

Do you have flexibility classes?

OUR MEMBERSHIP COST VS PILATES ANYTIME:

We think Pilates Anytime is a wonderful resource of Pilates workouts. Our membership price is a bit higher, since we offer a different service. Our focus is on providing a more personal experience. Anna wants to get to know YOU and help you on your fitness journey! The combination of videos and live online classes means you have the opportunity to practice as much as you like, when it suits you. Taking premium classes also allows you to receive personal feedback and advise to ensure correct alignment and technique. Even if you don't take Premium classes, Anna is always there to help if you have any questions or need modifications for any exercises. Our aim is to create an authentic Pilates studio experience, at the comfort of your own home.

Why does your membership cost more than Pilates Anytime?

Start Here

Get access to all live online classes and the full Video Library for all levels!  You can start a 7 Day Trial (£12) at any point. If you can manage live classes, join a Premium live class during your trial so Anna can advise which level is most suited to you. Try joining at least the New joiners: Pilates Basics Premium class and a Premium Pilates Level 1 class if you are new to Pilates or want a refresher. There is no obligation to purchase a membership after your trial. Please note, sometimes we may also offer trials of different lengths as special promotions. 

If we have a dedicated Beginners course scheduled, that's a perfect way to start your Pilates journey as a total beginner, as an alternative to the 7 Day Trial.

 

I hope you love your experience at my studio! If you wish to continue taking classes after the trial, you have two options explained below.
