Akane Abe-Trimmer instructs the following:
  • pilates : all levels
  •  

    Pilates is a technique for strengthening and toning the core postural muscles, especially in the abdominal area. Using small focused movements, core awareness is increased improving strength, flexibility and posture.

    Each teacher has their own approach so if you need a slow and detailed class we recommend Anja and Symeon, but if you want a tough workout go to Brooke. Ivona keeps her classes at a steady but relaxed pace, and if you like creative teachers try Akane, Alessandra and Danai!


    All levels - Open to all, no experience necessary.

    If you have a history of injuries or any other issues, we recommend our Level 1 class and teachers with a slower approach (see above).


  • pilates : level 2
  •  
    Pilates is a technique for strengthening and toning the core postural muscles, especially in the abdominal area. Using small focused movements, core awareness is increased improving strength, flexibility and posture.

    Level 2 - This is for anyone who has some experience of pilates and would like a more challenging class.
