Vanessa Salas

Vanessa fell in love with Pilates back in 2011 in London. Since then, she has found more than physical strength and help to manage pain from a connective tissue disorder. The mindfulness and focus of her personal practice have alleviated stress and brought lightness to her life as a VFX Artist.

Now mother of a toddler, she can definitely preach about the importance of being fit during pregnancy and afterwards. She is looking to specialise in pregnancy and post natal care.

Passionate about well balanced full body workouts, Vanessa believes in feeling strong in your body no matter who you are or what you do in your day to day. When she is not in a Pilates studio, she can be found working tirelessly on her other projects: stereo photography, creative programming and singing, but specially raising together a small human and a French bulldog.



Vanessa Salas instructs the following:
  • Group Reformer Mixed Level
  • All levels welcome. 55-60 minute Pilates workout. Most of the session devoted to work on the spring loaded Pilates machines, but may also include some matwork. This is a mindful full body workout that builds core strength, increases flexibility, improves balance, alignment and coordination. Maximum of 6 students taught by 1 instructor. Small classes allow us to provide individual attention and hands on guidance.

  • Group Reformer Gentle & Focused
  • A group reformer class with 3-6 students.  Emphasis on working a bit slower than other mixed level classes, with attention to individual students needs for modification of movements. Good for beginners; those returning to exercise.  There may be attention to rehabilitation if needed.

  • Group Reformer/jump board
  • Group reformer class that incorporates using the reformer jump board platform to do a cardio based workout ON the Pilates machine.  The springs on the machine make jumping a lower-impact move than performing the same movements upright.  Not recommended for those new to Pilates classes, during pregnancy, or for those with injuries or chronic health conditions.
