Elda Martello

For Elda, Pilates is a celebration of movement that we use to achieve well-being in body, mind and spirit. What started as a hobby, became her passion and then took over as her career. Not content with simply certifying as a Comprehensive Pilates Instructor, she is continually drawn to an ever-deeper study of anatomy and exercises.


Elda enjoys working with clients of all ages, abilities and experience. Seeing their transformation reaffirms her belief in Pilates’ benefits. Interacting with them leaves space for reciprocal growth.

“This development creates a positive energy we can both use to face change and to achieve our goals”.

Elda designs classes to create positive energy, improve flexibility, build strength and re-educate your body to move in a more precise, controlled and fluid way. The emphasis on the breath, alignment and developing a strong core will enable you to achieve well-being. You can increase intensity over time as your body adapts to the exercises.

Benji Vize Harrington

Benji aims to give his clients a sense of awareness by developing both the mind and body to support a healthy positive lifestyle.

Centering and balancing the body is fundamental, as it ensures alignment and stability for the individual. The control of the breath allows you to deepen the internal work of the muscles and to relax and focus the mind.

Whether it’s a strong dynamic class, or a gentle class to stabilise joints and align muscles, Benji’s ability to adapt and suit movement to the individual is the key to his and his clients’ enjoyment and stimulation.

Formerly a student of the London Contemporary Dance School, Benji has performed as a dancer in many stage and television shows. He then became a fitness instructor teaching dance, aerobics and Pilates,. He worked abroad in Italy for six years combining and developing his experience.
