Who is your faciliator?
My name is Gosia, I am a qualified Physiotherapist and hold a MSC degree in Complementary and Alternative Medicine awarded by University of Westminster, London.
My need of helping has led me to completing Physiotherapy studies in 2010, however a continuous search through intelligence and elegance to the human body and mind that goes beyond what we think and know began my journey in Complementary Medicine and exercise.
As a physiotherapist and body worker I realise how much correct exercise routine combined with manual practice and body awareness contributes to good health, mind and body.
Through numerous years spent in working with the human body, I acquired various skills and expertise that along with clinical reasoning and practitioner’s intuition allow me to support patients in their specific needs.
Therefore my pilates classes are designed to ease numerous body problems like muscular tension, pain or fatigue, lowering stress/ and increasing relaxation levels, promoting good sleep, improving posture and flexibility, strengthening and toning tired and weak muscles, but also to bring the body back to its holistic equilibrium to allow its natural power of healing.
I honour the traditional pilates principles, Breath Concentration Centering Control Precision Flow and emphasise the correct activation of abdominal muscles (centre) and pelvic floor muscles.
The classes will run as a 10 weeks progressive continuum, where each class will review previous workouts and build up from there. All exercises will be modified depending on patient’s levels of fitness and abilities. You will be given the opportunity to prepare your body and mind prior to the class with stretching routine and breathing, and cool off afterwards with calming routine and relaxation

What is pilates?
Pilates is the type of exercise that aims to strengthen the body in an even, balanced way, with particular emphasis on core/ abdominal strength to improve general fitness and wellbeing.
Pilates was introduced and developed by German-born Joseph Pilates, who believed mental and physical healthwere closely connected. His method was influenced by western forms of exercise, including gymnastics, boxing and Greco-Roman wrestling. Pilates immigrated to the US in the 1920s and opened a studio in New York, where he taught his method – which he called contrology – for several decades.
What are the principles of pilates exercise?
Joseph based his original work on three principles: Breath, Whole body health and whole body commitment, and Whole body encompassing mind and spirit. Throughout years, these principles have been unpicked and developed with relation to evidence based practice and it is the honouring of the Pilates Principles that the depth of workouts is achieved through. These are as follows:
Who is pilates for?
Pilates has something to offer people of all ages and levels of fitness, from beginners to athletes, ante and post-natal women and children .
What are the health benefits of pilates?
There are many reports on the health benefits of pilates training. Regular pilates practise can help improve posture, muscle tone, balance and joint mobility, as well as relieve stress and tension and reduce lower back pain experience and its reoccurrence.
Pilates can be beneficial for back pain, posture-related problems, neurological conditions, sports injuries, arthritis, stress related illness.
Pilates can also complement the training of athletes, sportsmen or dancers as it develops the whole body strength and flexibility and helps reduce the risk of injury.
Pilates can also be very helpful during the ante and post -natal period. Supervised training can not only enable the body to cope with the changes occurring during the pregnancy, but also retrain the muscles that have been affected by the pregnancy and provide a fast return to the pre-pregnancy shape.
Children and young adults can also benefit from pilates training as it has shown to help with developing physical confidence and competence as well as fundamental motor skills (coordination, control, balance), allows creativity and imagination as well as building the relationship and understanding between exercise and good health.
Can pilates help me lose weight?
As pilates is muscle-strengthening activity, it can help you maintain a healthy weight, but also as it can vary in intensity (gentle, dynamic, strength or resistance orientated) it can be helpful with losing weight as well.
Can I injure myself doing pilates?
Pilates is a low-impact form of exercise, so injuries are uncommon, but also our instructor, Gosia is fully trained in all levels of matwork (ante and post-natal) and also a certified Physiotherapist, so you will be in good hands.
