Weekly open classes

Pilates 1 on Sundays at 3:45 pm

This class is a beginner Mat Pilates Class which focuses on less advanced moves that are still guaranteed to challenge you. Every body is a pilates body, so if you are newer to your practise or just want to go back to the basics, this is a perfect class for you. In this class we use props such as the theraband and soft ball to make exercises more accessible. Sometimes, however, we also use props like the magic circle and the foam roller to provide additional challenge. The mat and the props are provided by BASI Pilates Academy. This class is taught in English upon request. Book here.

Pilates Flow 2 on Thursdays at 7:30 pm

This class is an intermediate to advanced Mat Pilates Class with fluid transitions. The intermediate and advanced exercises really challenge your core strength and endurance. If you are new to pilates, we recommend that you first join BASI Flow 1 Classes to understand the basic principles of Pilates and to learn the fundamental exercises. Pilates mat is provided by BASI Pilates Academy. This class is taught in English upon request. Book here.

BASI Reformer Pilates Course

The Reformer course for beginners (5 sessions) is mainly in Finnish. However, the teacher can offer some personal advice to you in English. Reformer is the most well known of the Pilates equipment. During this course you will learn how to use the Reformer (springs, straps, box, jumping board). In addition, you will learn the fundamental and some of the intermediate Reformer Pilates repertoire. After completing this beginners' course you can join the advanced course (5 sessions). Book the Reformer Pilates course here.
