OUR SERVICES

Private sessions

Pilates or Gyrotonic®? One thing is certain: privates are the real deal: the best way to achieve your goals and the most effective for feeling and seeing a difference in your body, plus you will work on your own rhythm and choose the time that suits you best! Your instructor will help you access the needs of your body and give you the personalized sessions that will best suit you.

Group classes

You can chose either a semi-private Pilates class (2-4 persons) where you will work on the apparatus or one (or more!) of our group classes: Ashtanga Yoga (5 persons max.), Pilates Mat or Barre class (both for 4-6 persons). Everyone works at the same time with one instructor so you’ll still get a great amount of personal attention plus you'll enjoy the energy of a small group..

Apprentiships

Want to teach Pilates? We will help you understand the foundation of the Classical Method. We'll take you step by step from the very beginning to the more advanced so you get to feel the Method in your body. This way, the more you work and learn, you will also get to develop a keen eye and create effective workouts for your future clients. Prerequisite: your absolute dedication!

CLASSICAL PILATES

Classical Pilates

Pilates is a method of mind - body conditioning. The "Classical" component means that we respect the guidelines and intentions of its creator. Joseph H. Pilates originally called his method Contrology. According to his words “Contrology develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit.” Each session should be a vigorous workout appropriate for the person's needs and strengths, integrating mind and body. In order to improve our physical fitness the 4 Ss: stability, stamina, strength and stretch should be challenged every time.

GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®

Gyrotonic Expansion System®

Created by Juliu Horvarth, an original and unique movement method, the Gyrotonic Expansion System® addresses the person holistically, mind and body as one, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and improving strength and movement efficiency. In our studio it can only be practiced in a private class. With Gyrotonic® exercises, each movement flows into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression. These carefully crafted sequences create balance, efficiency, strength and flexibility.

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga

This is a dynamic Yoga practice that synchronizes breath and movement (vinyasa) in order to produce internal heat and purify the body. Founded by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009) this method of hatha yoga follows a progression of 6 series of postures arranged in the traditional sequence as taught by its creator. Although physically more demanding than other types of yoga, this is a system for everyone since a qualified teacher will give you the appropriate modification for your body. The result of a regular practice is great stamina, improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.

Barre

This is a really cool class that draws its inspiration from disciplines like ballet, functional training and Pilates. It will help you tone and sculpt your whole body. A combination of strenght and flexibility the exercises use high reps and small range of motion movements. The barre is used mostly as a prop for balance and the classes also incorporate light weights and small props to add more resistance. Major benefits of barre are improved posture, muscle definition, weight loss, increased flexibility and reduced stress. You will also improve your balance. Our teachers will ask for sound biomechanics and effective movements so you get those results!

Testimonials

  • Kathi Ross Nash distinguished Pilates teacher

    Several years ago I was fortunate to have a very enthusiastic student enter my life, Margarita Efthymiou. Many students become certified and end their education there. Not Margarita. She searches out education with a passion that inspires. Margarita’s dedication to bring the true classical Pilates Method to Greece is unparalleled. She travels the world seeking out the work. I was so moved by her passion and dedication that I invited her to train, with a small group of personally selected instructors, in one of the foundational groups of the Pilates Professional Advanced Teacher Training Program. Margarita excelled in this group. I am proud to not only share the Method of Pilates with Margarita, but to have her as a student and more important, a friend.

    Margarita Efthymiou is an excellent Pilates teacher with additional knowledge in dance and movement. She graduated from my Pilates Master Mentor Program of 160 hours, training directly with me, in September 2013 and became a Second Generation Pilates teacher. Mrs. Efthymiou is an experienced serious Pilates professional, committed to the Pilates method, I am pleased to call her Lolita's Disciple and she earns my recommendation.

  • I have nothing but good words to say about Eleonora. I hadn't set foot in a gym for 30 years before I started Pilates 3 years ago. With nothing more but her smile, humour, patience but rigour as well when needed, she made me love Pilates and it is a necessity for me now in my every day life!

    In the last 5 years Pilates has a very important role in my life. For 3 years now I am very lucky to have Natasa as my instuctor and the changes I have seen are dramatic. She is an excellent teacher, very knowledgeable but her biggest asset is her ability to feel the needs of her clients. To me not only she is my favorite Pilates teacher ever but also my personal healer!

    Lily Georgoulakou

  • I feel really lucky Margarita was my teacher. Her passion for Pilates was what inspired me to want to delve into the Method. She is experienced and knowledgeable and likes to share everything she knows; she doesn't hold back. Every time I find myself on a workshop with acclaimed Pilates teachers I feel I have been more than adequately prepared and am able to absorb and make progress, move forward. And every time I thank her. For anyone who wants to learn Pilates Margarita is a safe bet!

    "Myrto is not your ordinary Pilates instructor. She is always enthousiastic and full of energy and this energy is contagious whether you work with her on the apparatus or the mat. No one gets bored with Myrto, every session is a new experience. Totally attentive, she will help you go through the exercises in the best way you can. Your body will start to change, in the way it looks and the way it functions, but even better your mood will be lifted. Although she is tough, working with her is so fun that challenge is something you look forward to."
