About myPilateslondon

When Pete Pallai founded myPilateslondon he wanted to create a boutique studio with a dedicated and approachable team of practitioners, with instructors who offer their own individual skill sets and style but, foremost, look after their clients and offer a holistic approach to conditioning and rehabilitation.

Our team of experienced practitioners work very closely with our 1:1 clients and also run classes in small groups of maximum 6 people. This ensures that each of our clients benefits from focused individual attention to help them set and achieve their own goals.

Pete is a two-time Olympian, competing in Nagano in 1998 and Salt Lake City in 2002. He also played rugby in London’s 1st and 2nd divisions for 10 years.

What is studio Pilates?

Studio Pilates is a system of exercises using special equipment, designed to improve physical strength, flexibility, and posture, and enhance mental awareness. The equipment provides resistance or assistance through a system of springs and levers, designed to facilitate each move by making them harder or easier. This will be dictated by your level of ability during your sessions so the degree of challenge varies greatly and is tailored to suit your needs and goals.

Our Machinery

The equipment you’ll get to know includes weird and wonderful sounding contraptions like the Wunda Chair, Orbit, Reformer, Cadillac and Ladder Barrel. The body is very intuitive at adapting and you will get to grips with these unfamiliar machines in no time. Don’t worry, it’s not rocket science!
