About Pilates

Pilates is a low-impact exercise system that focuses on strengthening your core, improving flexibility, and enhancing your overall well-being. Due to its numerous advantages for people of all ages and fitness levels, Joseph Pilates created Pilates in the early 20th century, which has since gained widespread popularity. Whether you’re a beginner in London searching for “Pilates for Beginners” classes or a seasoned athlete seeking to improve your core strength and injury prevention, Pilates offers a path towards a stronger, more balanced you.

Here are just a few of the many benefits you can experience through regular Pilates practice:

Improved Posture

Pilates strengthens the muscles that support your spine, leading to better posture and reduced back pain.

Increased Core Strength

A strong core is essential for good posture, balance, and stability. Pilates exercises specifically target your core muscles, leading to a stronger foundation for all your movements.

Enhanced Flexibility

Pilates stretches and lengthens your muscles, increasing your range of motion and reducing tightness. This improved flexibility can help to prevent injuries and improve your overall well-being.

Injury Prevention

By strengthening your core and improving your flexibility, Pilates can help to prevent injuries caused by muscle imbalances or poor posture.

Stress Reduction

Pilates incorporates mindful breathing exercises, which can help to reduce stress and promote relaxation.

Huberts personalised and targeted classes have gently coaxed me into improving my core strength without even realising. I’m astounded how far I’ve come in a year and can’t wait to see what I will be able to do by this time next year.

I cannot speak highly enough of Hubert and his exceptional reformer pilates classes. As a dancer rehabilitating from an injury, I have been immensely grateful for his extensive knowledge and expertise. His detailed understanding of both pilates and injury recovery as well as ballet, has been instrumental in my healing process.

Each session is meticulously planned to address my specific needs, ensuring a safe and effective workout. Hubert pays close attention to form and technique, providing personalised adjustments that have significantly improved my strength and flexibility.

His professionalism, combined with a compassionate approach, creates an encouraging and supportive environment. I highly recommend Mr. Essakow to anyone seeking top-notch Pilates instruction, particularly those recovering from injuries. His classes have been a pivotal part of my rehabilitation journey, and I am incredibly thankful for his guidance and support.

Hubert is an amazingly knowledgeably sensitive Pilatus teacher. His classes helped my body to sustain itself in a healthy and aware manner.

…although for much of that time our sessions had to be on Zoom because of COVID. Fortunately, I have been able to get back into his studio in recent months with its state-of-the-art equipment, which is obviously the ideal environment in which to do Pilates. But even on Zoom, Hubert managed to bring about the changes and make the sessions interesting, and the qualities that make him such a good teacher were still much in evidence: patience, inventiveness, and above all, a great sense of humour. Time spent with Hubert is never less than fun, but most importantly, he has done a lot to arrest my decline into a largely immobile old age! Thank you, Hubert! x

…Hubert helped me a lot with my scoliosis, body strength, and posture. He is very knowledgeable and experienced, and the studio is clean and well equipped. Highly recommended; worth travelling from Wimbledon as I don’t live locally.

…His studio is well equipped, and I always feel energised by the end of the hour. Also great having exercises tailored to my needs. Definitely recommend.

My suggestion is to let Hubert guide you through rediscovery and reinvention of your movement quality and range of motion. I found it healing; I gained new awareness and joy in movement. Highly recommended.
