I was taught the names of the different Pilates exercises and the equipment setup as well which was extremely helpful. I highly recommend Pilates Flow @ 2nd! You will leave the studio feeling accomplished having completed a splendid workout. 😊

  • Been learning here for 2 years under an easy going instructor who always encourages me to push harder. In the beginning I was inflexible and skinny-fat but now I can see improvements and tightening throughout my body especially around my abs, back and arms. It’s a calm and positive environment where I feel accepted compared to other studios I’ve tried which is why I think it’s the best pilates studio in Singapore.

  • 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.
