WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US

  • My husband and I have been practising pilates at Pilatesflow for almost five years. Pilatesflow is where we started pilates, formed our basics and saw ourselves improving month by month.

    Song is an excellent instructor, who is always able to give clear instructions. He is very focused on the foundation/basics of pilates and only move on after that has been formed. He is strict but gentle. He understands what our bodies require at each class, and teach his class with that knowledge in mind. His classes are usually full of flow, and he connects one move to another, as if we are in a dance sequence. He is also a very encouraging instructor. At the end of the class, we often feel worked out and fullfilled.

    We have also taken classes with the other instructors at Pilatesflow who are all fantastic. Valérie is dynamic and energetic. Arman is concise and friendly. The studio is also always kept clean and tidy.

    We highly recommend Pilatesflow to beginners who are looking to start their pilates journey, intermediate who want to improve further and perhaps even, the more advanced, who would like a pointer or two from the experts at Pilatesflow.

    Michelle Chong Avatar Michelle Chong

    Well equipped, Clean and peaceful studio with Attentive , knowledgeable and professional instructors.

    I have been with Pilates Flow for 3 years, attended both 1-1 and mat classes, instructors were not only encouraging and patient, they are all amazingly attentive to the details, both by making sure that I am working out the right core muscle in the right way and giving us specific instruction on how to achieve results of each exercise. Since I have started my lessons I no longer have backaches and feel great. 😊⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Serene Chan Avatar Serene Chan
  • The studio offers a clean and cozy environment. It stays true to classical Pilates ( i.e. the original teachings of Joseph Pilates) It also keeps the Pilates Mat classes small with a maximum of six students to ensure personalised feedback and focus. I enjoyed the Pilates Mat class as it helps to ease the stiffness of my shoulders and lower back after a long day at work, as well as strengthening and toning my body.
