Alexandra has an incredible breath of knowledge about the function of the human body that goes far beyond one's usual expectations. Her classes are fun but increasingly challenging - and will definitely serve the motivated individual to achieve their goals. Alex articulates the exercises well, moulds the classes to the requests of her students yet keeps the classes dynamic. She is passionate about truly helping her students change their bodies and become stronger, more body aware and pain-free. It is easy to become a Pilates junkie once you've experienced one of Alex's classes!

Alexandra is the best Pilates teacher I ever had! She has a very scientific approach and you can only be convinced: the results are here! Alexandra makes every single class pleasant without losing her goal to challenge everyone of us. So energizing!

Alexandra initiated me to Pilates and I am so glad she did! I was immediately impressed by her professionalism and very strong knowledge of the body. She possesses the right balance of instruction with accessibility. She is a perfectionist, friendly and reliable. My body already feels stronger and tighter after a few classes with her. A gem of a teacher in the Pilates world. Highly recommended.

I have been doing Pilates with Alexandra for about two years. When I started I had pain and limited movement in my upper back. Alexandra’s Pilates sessions have eliminated this problem completely. In general after her classes my body feels better, my posture improves and there is no soreness or tension in the muscles.
I have been actively involved in sports all my life, competing in ski and running competitions, in contrast Alexandra’s Pilates sessions are not as physically demanding and exhausting. In these two years my well-being has improved a lot, I feel younger and can easily keep up with my three year old grandson. Although I had no intention to lose weight, I am very happy that though my weight has not decreased since I have started Pilates classes with Alexandra, I have lost a dress size.
Whenever I travel for business or go on holiday, I try not to stop my Pilates training, and take Pilates classes abroad as well. I have done Pilates classes in Thailand, USA, Russia, but I always look forward to coming back and being in the safe hands of Alexandra again. She has under control every muscle and I am confident she will never make me do anything that could be harmful. I can surely say she is the best Pilates teacher and her Pilates classes are the best I have ever had.

Pilates excellence is an appropriate name - it's certainly not your average gym Pilates class devoted just to burning calories. If you have the motivation and commitment this can be a transformative experience - one achieved through Alex's excellent knowledge of Pilates principles, kinesiology and human anatomy. This knowledge is leveraged to ensure that student's specific development needs can be targeted. Once you've experienced Pilates Excellence, there's simply no going back...

I have just completed a 10 week course of mat Pilates with Alexandra. My background is that I am professional martial artist, having competed all across the globe. This meant that Alexandra had quite a few idiosyncrasies in my body to iron out: strong surface abdominals but less strength with the deeper muscles; hunched and rotated shoulders, to name a couple. Alex quickly recognised that for me Pilates was a corrective exercise rather than something that I needed to use to get a work out. Our training was constantly varied and we saw quick progression, a combination of good, clear teaching and decent body awareness. Alex pushed me harder each time and the improvements I saw always encouraged me. I was constantly asking questions and she was also able to explain clearly and intelligently why we were doing specific exercises and the benefit I would derive from them. To summarise, our lessons were both enjoyable and engaging and I was very impressed with the development I saw in my body and then benefits that this passed through into my sport.

Amazing pilates teacher! Thanks to her knowledge, professionalism and amazing advice, Alexandra managed to get me back into shape post pregnancy. Posture improvements were noticeable from the first sessions - which is quite motivating - and Alexandra's energy and enthusiasm are a must to make every single Pilates class enjoyable. Last but not least, she shares excellent tips that can be followed every day and really make THE difference.

Amazing pre-natal teacher. I started Pilates with Alexandra before I've got pregnant with my second child, and continued up to almost last day of my pregnancy. The difference between my first and second pregnancy was striking thanks to my weekly Pilates routine, even my GP congratulated me for my posture. The shape of my legs and bum changed dramatically, and even just 2 weeks after birth I still feel quite toned. I have recently resumed Pilates with Alexandra (post-natal classes which are amazing!).
