Pilates Reformer, Yoga and Meditation studio run by Julia Oravisto.


APRIL 2019


If you haven’t heard of Anula yet, it’s about time you check her out as Anula is one of today’s biggest names in the Pilates world. Traveling and teaching workshops internationally, her approach is both philosophical and funny as well as highly intelligent.

Having trained under some of the biggest names in the industry, graduated from the Kane School for Integration (Kinected) in NYC, the Kathy Grant Heritage Training Program in 2014 and has worked with American Pilates Masters including but not limited to Cara Reeser, Kelly Kane and Deborah Lessen.

There is something very special about the way Anula brings together the classical elements of Pilates with contemporary approaches to movement. She challenges us to question everything about our practice and our bodies, and we hope you will enjoy this weekend with us and leave with new perception and fresh ideas!



SATURDAY 6.4. | 13-16

We will cover some simple ways to change the language we use to discuss our bodies and make room for ourselves to feel more successful.

We will break down myths such as:

How do we define Pilates as a profession?

Are we teachers of exercises or skills?

What are the skills we teach in various apparatus exercises?

Are practitioners of the Pilates Method students or clients? Why is the distinction important?

Are we teachers or instructors? Why is the distinction important?

Where did the myth of Pilates being "good for the core" start?

Can we/should we teach what we cannot personally do? Does it matter?

Where the original choreography is abstracted to the point of no longer being recognizable. Is it still Pilates? and why the answer is yes and no.

Recommended for experienced students and Pilates teachers.

150€ (3 hour workshop)



SUNDAY 7.4. | 10-13

What's wrong with that question? Why is it ok to politely decline to answer? Pilates is a practice, a lifestyle and a method of movement. We are not healers, doctors or therapists. We teach Pilates and that is more than enough.

Do we "owe" our students a "burn"? Does "not feeling" it mean a movement has no value? Is it within our scope of practice to tailor a session to our student's individual nervous systems? Are our student's feelings or lack of feeling or feeling in the "wrong" places facts?

Can we help our students find a better more useful vocabulary for sensation, pain, muscle activation and harm.

Why is one muscle better than another? Lower back sensation is bad. Abdominal sensation is good. Neck sensation is bad. Tricep sensation is good. These are value judgments. What are they based on and how can we guide a session with less sensation based judgments?

Recommended for experienced students and Pilates teachers.
