Alberto D'Agostino

Reformer Instructor

Alberto's passion for Pilates and Reformer has grown over the years while practicing and discovering the numerous benefits his body was gaining in his every-day life. From adjusting and adopting a correct posture, to ordinary movement such as walking, running and standing on his feet all day at work, to using the correct form when exercising with weights. Realising how less tired his body was at the end of the day and how much more energetic he was feeling every morning, it was mind-opening for him, to the point where he decided to share all the knowledge he acquired along the way and help others to achieve a high level of wellness.

“My classes are rich in exercises focused onbringing deep awareness of the body, in order to activate the full musculatory system and to feel less fatigue at the end of your day. Challenging movements but not overwhelming, they will improve your strength, correct your alignment and increase your mobility. All topped up with fun vibes and great tunes."

Chloe Veronique

Reformer Instructor

I believe through yoga we are on an ongoing journey of self inquiry with constant opportunity for growth. My teaching style is fast paced and dynamic vinyasa that challenges, empowers and builds strength mentally and physically for my students. I incorporate Patanjali’s yoga sutras into my classes to not only inspire my students but to also honor the traditions of the practice.

I fell into pilates quite naturally from yoga. I quickly learnt the importance of a strong core, healthy joints and a balanced body. Although there were many differences between yoga and pilates, I loved how Pilates challenged me, strengthened my core but most importantly, complimented my yoga practice.

Whether I’m teaching yoga or pilates, I strive to make my classes feel safe yet challenging. Everyone has different experiences, anatomy and strengths. Therefore I always teach with variations, adjustments, progressions and regressions, whilst reminding everyone that where you are at right now is exactly

where you need to be.

Zoe Bridger

Reformer Instructor

Zoe has always been drawn to Byron and finally decided to make the move in 2020 to pursue a number of creative outlets including floristry, marketing & PR, eventually falling in love with Pilates. 

 

Zoe's passion for Pilates shines through her teaching, expect a slower style of burn while experiencing a fun, yet challenging and dynamic flow.

 

In Zoe's own words "Pilates isn't just a form of exercise for me, it's about mindful movement, very much being as much a mind as it is body workout. It's all about being a part of a warming community that allows you to grow within your own body. This positive energy and infectious attitude leaves you feeling taller, happier and more confident. Being able to contribute to making others feel this way is the greatest reward."
