Pilates Now is an outstanding studio that I couldn’t recommend more highly. Utilizing a full range of Pilates Stott equipment, the classes are taught by impressively knowledgeable and personable experts who provide individualized instructions, tailored to your needs, within small groups (maximum of 4 per class). It's fun and varied in every class. There are plenty of classes to choose from at all levels of ability, making it accessible for everyone. I have experienced transformations in my whole body strength, flexibility, control, and understanding, and I am sure the classes have protected me from aging injuries. Anyone with easy access to Gunnersbury tube station is incredibly lucky to have this exceptional studio available. Go for it!

I injured myself and suffered with back and hip issues for years and often need ing to visit a physio / chiropractor on a weekly basis to get by. I tried all sorts of exercises and classes but frequently aggravated my injury.

Since starting with Pilates Now I have managed to go over 12 months without problems. They are excellent at helping to make sure I am aligned correctly and working the right muscles. Ris is especially good at working with injuries and I always feel very safe and supported in class. I can feel core muscles that definitey weren't there before!!

I've been going to Pilates with Ris for over a decade and I can't praise her highly enough. Her understanding of the human body and ability to adjust the class for individual needs is really impressive.

I highly recommend Pilates Now. Classes are always fun and exercises varied to keep classes interesting. All of the instructors adapt exercises to meet individual needs. Try a class for yourself, you will really enjoy it and the health benefits are amazing.

Super experienced instruction and varied classes to suit the needs of attendees. I should know - it's been 14 years and I'm still going! Ris has the ability to adjust the class at a moments notice to respond to whatever is needed. I always walk out happier and physically more balanced than I arrive. Totally recommended

Ris's (online) classes (I'm currently abroad) have made me much more aware of the mechanics of my body. I've known for years that my posture was bad because of my subconscious allowances for being 2 metres tall. Then 3 years ago I was diagnosed with Parkinson's, which ... obviously doesn't help! I started Pilates soon after diagnosis.

Ris's constant reminders during the sessions - "Notice the way that feels in your ankles", "Focus on how still you are keeping your back", "This should be working the muscles around your ribs" - makes it impossible to simply go through the motions, impossible to fall back into bad habits.

Obviously, it's not stopping Parkinson's: nothing can ... yet! But it has made me much more aware of it. Knowing your enemy is essential in any battle, and, I'm sure, Pilates has improved my balance and ease when walking. I would recommend Pilates in general, and Ris in particular, to anyone & everyone.

Very good value and lots of fun. I booked three one-to-one and 10 group classes at Pilates Now which were all brilliant and provided me with an excellent foundation to practice pilates. Equipment is state of the art and classes are small, so there is a lot of individual attention. Highly recommended.

Brilliant service throughout all sessions. Great 1-2-1 service received throughout all sessions. I would highly recommend to anyone considering Reformer Pilates. Ris the trainer took time to listen and adapt each session accordingly to my need. She’s brilliant, very experienced and always doing something new. The 1-2-1 was a great start to get any new beginners going before joining group sessions!

I feel stronger and more flexible, I’ve learnt to listen to my body and slow it all down.

Faith offers a unique on-site class focused on post-natal care, which you can rarely find in London. After 10 sessions, I felt my pelvic floor has greatly strengthened. Faith's patience and attention to details really impressed me. I would strongly recommend my friends to attend her class post-birth. It is a cure physically and mentally.

I had my 1:1 post-natal classes with Faith and found her to be extremely knowledgeable and friendly. All the exercises she taught were extremely helpful to close my diastasis recti and she always makes sure that they are adjusted to my post-natal needs. Faith is very professional at all lessons and always answered all my questions, with loads of examples and knowledge about the topic.
I really felt comfortable and progressing in each lesson. I would definitely recommend Faith and her lessons.

I have been a client of Ris for 18 months, and her classes have made a substantial difference to my muscle strength and overall posture. I realised as I was getting mature I needed something to ensure I was fit to rick into my old age. She's an excellent teacher, and even when you're doing something challenging, Ris helps you through it as she knows it will reward you at the end of the day. I highly recommend the one-to-one reformer class.

Ris has been my Pilates instructor for over 10 years. I recently started doing reformer classes with her at her studio at Pilates Now. Ris challenges you (even when you complain), ensures you get the most out of your sessions, and somehow makes it all fun and different every time.

It's worth the money and buying packs of 3 does reduce the cost a little bit. Ris is patient, kind, and masterful in her work, and she needed to be with me as one of her pupils. I feel a massive change in how my body works and a better understanding of improving my muscle strength and being more pliable.

I have been attending pilates sessions with Pilates Now for more than 6 months, twice a week, for a specific problem. They have a very complete equipment and Ris is very knowledgeable and caring. I can feel the difference in my body posture the minute I walk out of the studio. It is hard to believe, but she always comes up with a different exercise. That makes every lesson enjoyable, far for being a routine, even after so many weeks! Both the app and the web page are very intuitive and easy to manage. It is very reliable since you can quickly add everything to your calendar, and get reminders

I cannot recommend Pilates Now highly enough. I was very fortunate to have Ris as my instructor in both Reformer & Equipment Pilates. I can only describe her as AMAZING!!! She was so inspiring and after 12 sessions had me completing moves I did not know I was capable of! Her approach was calm, friendly & very professional! 10/10 from me!! Thank you Ris!

Reformer Pilates classes with PilatesNow are constantly excellent and varied so that it never gets boring. Ris is great at adjusting levels to customer's needs and I feel always suitably challenged. Since the lockdown we moved to online matt classes which are to my surprise just as challenging and incredibly varied with very little equipment. I was able to keep my exercise regime and in fact have doubled down since lockdown to two sessions a week. Great customer service and webpage.

Personalised instruction. The classes are customised for specific needs, in my case recovering strength after a series of operations on my spine. Since resuming classes using zoom I find I stand straighter, walk more steadily and have much better control over my movement.

Through my classes with Ris and team, Pilates has become a fundamental part of my life. I love my lessons and the impact they have had on how my body works. Would recommend to anyone Ris’s classes are fantastic - at first I was sceptical when we had to move online, but in fact these classes are brilliant. The personal focus is fantastic and she really works with you to find out what you want (and need) to achieve. After several weeks of online classes, although I can’t wait to get back in the studio, I am stronger and more mobile than ever. On top of that, Ris is a joy to spend an hour with, and there’s a lot of laughter in amongst the hard work!

I’ve been seeing Riz for antenatal Pilates since I’ve been about 6 months pregnant. I was struggling with hip and back pain, and working with Riz has really improved this. I started in person in Chiswick and have since been doing online sessions from home. Using minimal equipment that I already had, the sessions are just as effective. I feel like working with Riz has really helped me feel stronger through pregnancy and has definitely helped me think about my posture and prepare for labour! Good easy website for booking abs remembers last classes

Easy and fast purchase without a need to log into account. I cannot recommend Ris and her classes highly enough! She has been very supportive during my pregnancy ( antennal Pilates) and knowing all challenges and pains I went through, was able to put together excercise regime to work out not only the weakened muscles but as well address all pains as they show up on weekly basis. She has made sure am aware of my posture and how to correctly join all breathing/lifting/carrying. Dedicated postnatal class has been key in my recovery especially after section and important in focusing on right exercises to get back in shape. I would highly recommend these classes to all mum's out there.

Beautiful studio. Knowledgeable instructor. My body thanks me every time I leave! Ris is an amazing instructor who talks you through each exercise and ensures you understand the essence and which muscles should be activated.

I've been going to her studio on a weekly basis for almost 9 months now and my body can really feel the difference.

If you can get a private 121 session do it - you won't regret it. Otherwise go to a class, they're small and everyone gets plenty of attention.

Following a back operation, I've been doing pilates for 8 years in Manchester and came back to London hoping to find a reliable and experienced teacher for my needs. I could not have asked for better in Ris. She's utterly brilliant! I'm fussy about studio pilates having done so much but I learnt a huge amount from her and really enjoyed every session. She taught me exercises I'd never done before and gave me new insight into old favourites. She'll push you hard, but her manner is kind and funny and you will have a ball (as well as ache like buggery the day after!). Cannot recommend her highly enough.

All body stretch. Great service with a well-qualified trainer. Small class which allows to address each participant's issues and has a really personal approach. Pilates on machines are much better than the classic version and you get to really work on those muscles you never knew you had. It looks like torture equipment but once you try it you will be hooked.
