I have done Pilates for many years and have just started classes with Edyta as my previous teachers have stopped teaching. What a great find as a teacher. Her classes are small and very personal. Edyta provides a great variation in exercises, so the classes alway feel fresh and challenging. Edyta herself has a great sense of humour and makes the classes fun as well as good exercise. I thoroughly recommend her as a Pilates instructor.

I was looking to find a local Pilates class as I suffer with lower back pain. I found Edyta on google and I am so glad I did. Edyta has a welcoming studio from her home and is very warm in her approach. Her classes are small enough that she is able to watch carefully to ensure you are moving correctly and safely. She also does this with a great sense of humour which makes you feel comfortable. I love that each class is different and she keeps you engaged, I never want the class to actually end!
Highly recommend.

Thank you Nicola

At the Studio we understand that to get the most out of our bodies we need confidance that we are moving in the right way and doing the right things to help ourselves.
That's why we only have socialist trained at the highest level in Pilates to run our classes. They understand the way you move and understand the way you want to be able to move.
You can then progress more quickly and safety.
WE believe in keeping our classes fresh and dynamic. We use a variety of the latest equipment and technique.
Group mat based classes (max 6 people per class)


Lower Back Pain
90 percent of us will experience at least one episode of lower back pain in our lives. It’s also likely that many of us will hear this: “Back pain? You should try Pilates.” The incidence of back pain is rising because of our sedentary lifestyles and increased dependence on technology (tech neck, anyone?), combined with a “Weekend Warrior” mentality when it comes to exercising. For people in their 30s and beyond, back pain can be a chronic or constant problem, especially if one is overweight and/or inactive. Conditions such as arthritis and even depression and anxiety can predispose someone to back pain. Read on to discover how Pilates can help if you or someone you know that is experiencing back pain.

There’s a reason all those well-meaning friends and acquaintances plug Pilates for back pain. Pilates strengthens the core, a corset-like group of muscles that stabilize the trunk and pelvis much like a weightlifter’s belt. Equally important, Pilates increases awareness for proper posture and healthy body mechanics. When we stand or sit with a tall spine, we create space between the vertebral discs, relieving pressure. These two actions, pulling in the abdominal muscles and lengthening the spine work in tandem to create a stronger, more supple back.


Following new restriction Berkshire Pilates Studio will close from Thursday 5th November. Studio classes will still be on as normal Monday, Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th November. Virtual Zoom classes will carry on as normal to help you moving throughout November.

A review from one of my client.
I have been taking Pilates classes for over 20 years and Edyta is the best teacher I have ever had. She takes the time to explain and correct. She gives clear careful instructions and individual attention during the lesson to ensure you are doing the exercises correctly. Also she adapts any exercise if you are unable to do it a certain way or you have an injury. Her lessons are never dull as she takes a lot of time a trouble to ensure we do different exercises each week. I can't recommend her highly enough.
Lesley Hutson

Thank you Lesley for your kind words.


Edyta is a very professional and friendly teacher. She has encouraged me at every stage and adapted movements where I have had difficulty because of arthritis in my knees. I think I have improved a lot due to Edyta’s clear demonstration and instruction and I really enjoy the sessions because she varies them every week.

The Beauty & Function of the Natural Curves of the Spine

Here are a few other adjustments you can make to maintain a healthy spine:

If you sit for long periods of time at work, optimize your work station and for ergonomics. Typically this means raising the level of your monitor to eye height when sitting up tall, using an external keyboard and/or mouse so your hands stay even
with your elbows, and using a chair that encourages good alignment. Bonus points for desks that allow you to alternate between sitting and standing!

Take breaks when sitting for long periods of time by moving, stretching, and walking throughout the day.

Incorporate physical activity into your routine at least 3 times a week (such as Pilates)

Consult an expert such as a Pilates Back4Good practioner who can let you know how to improve your alignment specifically.

In order to correct bad habits, we must train our muscle memory to keep us in proper alignment until it becomes second nature. It takes practice, but the payoff is worth it: If abnormalities in spinal curvature are left to fester long enough, they can cause nasty issues including herniated discs and pinched nerves.

to our classes. Your Back4Good® Practitioner will happily liaise with your GP to facilitate your referral and to plan the best programme for you.

Both programmes will be tailored to your specific needs.


NEW - Silver Pilates Classes for Older Adults
A Gentler and Effective Way to Stay Fit

Wednesday at 10.45am Spencers Wood Village Hall RG7 1AP
Pilates is perfect for older adults because it does not have the impact on the body that other forms of exercise do, and is not nearly as severe on the joints as most workouts are, If you're an older adult and haven’t exercised in a while, Pilates is a safe way to restart a workout program.

Pilates also helps with a variety of age-related ailments. Arthritis sufferers benefit because the gentle mid-range movements decrease the chance of joints compressing while maintaining the range of motion around them. For sufferers of osteoporosis or stenosis, Pilates can also help. For osteoporosis the simple and standing Pilates leg exercises may increase bone density in both the spine and the hip. For lumbar stenosis there are exercises that can stretch out tight back muscles and strengthen the extensor muscles of the spine to counteract the forces of gravity that can pull people into a hunched position. Be careful, however. Any type of flexion exercise, for example, is not good for someone with osteoporosis. Conversely, any type of extension may cause injury to someone with stenosis. If you have either of these conditions it is important that you make sure your Pilates instructor knows how to modify the exercises so that you do not hurt yourself.
Pilates has also been documented to slow or reverse the effects of debilitating diseases like Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis. The mid-range motion of the exercises can help people overcome rigidity and become more limber. It can even help with brain traumas like a stroke.

What Can I Do For Foot, Knee or Hip Pain?
Do you suffer from foot, knee, or hip pain? Whether or not you do now, you just might later, so it’s good to know some good ways to ease specific pains. Between 15 and 25 percent of all people suffer from knee pains, which is actually the second largest cause of chronic pain
And even if our knees are perfectly sound, it’s difficult to live a pain-free life, since minor injuries, muscle exhaustion, and bodily fatigue play a role in body pains over time
It’s important to know some basic Pilates Exercises and correct body alignment rules.

Exercises To Help With Joint Pain. These six simple exercises that will help you out with any foot, hip, and knee pains.

Heel Raises
For this exercise, you want to start of by grabbing the back of a chair and standing behind it. You’re going to use the chair to help you balance throughout the exercise. Begin by raising one leg behind you at the knee. Slowly, raise the heel of your other leg so that you’re standing on your toes, using the chair to help you balance. Slowly lower yourself again so your heel is resting on the floor again. Repeat this motion between 10 and 15, then switch legs and repeat everything on the other leg.

Regular completion of this exercise not only strengthens your ankle and calf muscles, but it will also work the muscles around your knees to help with the pain.

Toe Walking
This is a very simple exercise that you will be able to do while maintaining other household, office, or other such chores. You must simply walk! But the trick is to do so while on our toes and at a quickened pace. This exercise will work to strengthen your calf muscles, also giving your toes and the balls of your feet a workout in order to strengthen all the muscles within.

Be sure to keep walking on your toes between five and 15 minutes, or until you’re properly tired, in order to reap the full benefits of this exercise.

Ankle Circles
This exercise is extremely simple and easy. In order to work on your ankle muscles, you may lie down, sit, or stand. You must simply raise on leg, and slowly rotate the foot of that leg in a smooth, circular motion. Repeat 10 times in a clockwise circle, 10 times in a counterclockwise circle, and then duplicate everything on the other leg.

Resistance Training
For this, you’ll need the famous resistance band. Secure the band around a solid piece of furniture, and then sit on the floor. Put one leg under the other, slightly bend at the knees, and grab the band with the foot of the upper leg. Slowly bend your foot back towards your head, stretching the band, and then loosen. Repeat 10 to 15 times on each leg.

Toe Games
These are just somewhat fun games you should play with your toes to strengthen them. Start by just curling your toes, then practice by picking up a towel you’ve dropped on the floor with just your toes. Once you mastered that, try picking up pebbles or marbles and dropping them in a basket, just using your toes and feet.

Walking on Balls
This exercise is meant to relax you. Find a tennis ball, or something of similar diameter, and then take a seat on a chair. Place your foot on the ball, and press down, slowly rolling the ball with your foot from your heel to your toes. Enjoy the simple massage!

What other exercises do you use to help build up the muscles necessary to ease and prevent hip, foot, and knee pain?
