Pilates Studio Pitonyasa

In 2010 Sandra Pagano has opened Pilates Studio Pitonyasa in Arnhem. The studio is characterized by its open and personal approach. Pilates classes at Studio Pitonyasa differ from those in a fitness centre or sports school by several important aspects:

  • The teacher has completed an extensive course and continues to develop him- or herself by personal training at colleagues and following workshops.
  • The teacher is trained to read a body. He or she knows that a body can only be as strong as the weakest link. As a consequence the teacher is able to quickly identify weak spots of the body.
  • The Pilates lessons are not just a bunch of distinct exercises. On the contrary, they form a coherent movement system in which every exercise serves a specific purpose.
  • There is no loud music during the Pilates lesson. The studio is a calm and peaceful environment that does not distract you in any way from your Pilates training.
  • The classes are small in order to pay full attention to each individual. This is why each customer can do the exercises at his or her own personal level.
  • Special Pilates equipment is present which makes it possible to train in more depth and to gain a broader experience of Pilates.

Both group and duo or solo classes are given. In the group classes one can train the body in a pleasant and quiet atmosphere. The solo and duo lessons are customized sessions and help for example to achieve higher goals in sports such as golf, dance, football and swimming. They can equally well be a logical follow up or an addition to group classes to train the techniques in more depth.
