Why is it called Somatic Pilates?
It is called Somatic Pilates because there is an aspect that I want to bring in, that is to keep checking how and what you are feeling on your body. I bring a little meditative practice each time for each of you to connect to this ‘felt sense’ and this is not something I teach in regular Pilates setting. As the whole, it anyway looks like an online Pilates class. You would do familiar moves from Pilates. However, It is not my intention to get you all move in the form I am giving. It is my intention that you move as you feel right and meaningful, using the indications and structures I am offering. I will keep an eye on everyone’s safety and hold the virtual space. So you are invited to go on your own journey of movements, sensations and feelings. Enjoy yourself.

Some voices from the last series…
“Extremely relaxing. I learnt how to focus and relax with in-depth body awareness”.

“I loved the classes – the pace and the balance of very clear instruction with space to explore for yourself. I learnt how I can do Pilates more slowly and in a more contemplative way”.

“HIGHLY RECOMMEND; I feel physically and mentally regenerated, stretched, focused and energised”.

The classes welcome any bodies that would appreciate movement with attention, to rebalance and restore.
