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

May 2019



Vinyasa flow practice with a hint of Katonah Yoga

Bring new depth to your yoga practice through strong flow series, challenging asanas and pranayama exercises that delve deep beneath the surface. The master class series addresses the entire body by building a strong foundation and self-confidence, then moving on to discover creativity, productivity and courage.

The modern yoga mindset seems to be extremely oriented towards achievement. The goal often seems to be to achieve more mobility and ever-more impressive asanas. This series will help you accept your yoga practice just as it is in the now. The classes may also reveal the things your body is capable of without you even knowing.

This master class concentrates on stability, the lower body, legs and pelvis. By building a foundation we seek answers to the questions of who and what am I. The class consists of asanas focused on the legs and pelvic area, looking to increase balance.

Focusing on the upper body; spine, core, chest and upper back we will seek out our inner fire, creativity and our own way of movement. The class consists of asanas focused on enhancing the well-being of your spine and strengthening the core. Backbends are carried out with great awareness and control, all the way from Cobras to bigger chest opening asanas.


8th of June, 13:00-15:30

This master class concentrates on the body as a whole. The class takes a brave dive into an upside down world, opening your eyes to a new way of seeing and experiencing things. Courage and bravery are the core theme of this class. Consisting of inversions and arm balancing, the asanas will be constructed with care and control, from headstand and Bakasana to more challenging inversions.  


Pilates for Runners

with Alessandra Vairo

Why do Pilates?

Whether you are an experienced runner or a beginner and whatever the reason is for you to run, there is always room to improve your performance and to keep your muscles in good length and strength.

Pilates training has been widely used to enhance stabilization by strengthening the deep muscles, to improve mobility and flexibility and thereby your running gait.

In this course we will prepare ourselves for the running season by practicing specific Pilates exercises on the reformer to stabilize the trunk and pelvis as well as to protect the spine and joints of the lower body. You will get tips and movements to do at home before and after running and each class will end in a run together by the seaside of Helsinki city!

Open for anyone.

No medical issues eg. injuries, pregnancy etc.
