Testimonials

I am a real fitness fiend, have been a member of many fitness clubs around the world, and have tried many fitness methods. Without a shadow of a doubt, Paola is one of the best trainers I have come across, and her barre method is the best one I have ever tried. She is so full of energy and passion and really looks out and cares for how we do her class. Her classes are energetic, intense, varied and fun. Not only do I adore going to her class, but the results I have seen on my body are amazing - leaner longer and more toned muscles especially in the thighs, hips and bum area. I love Paola’s hot barre!

Natasha’s steady-paced Vinyasa Flow classes aim to cultivate clarification in the mind, wake up the core and the deep stabiliser muscles, create fire and stir a deep awakening.  Natasha breaks down each pose so that it is accessible to all and gives options for every level. Her classes are infused with philosophy and spiritual sharings that are relatable to life. Natasha loves the power of Yoga and its ability to transform her students into their true, happy and peaceful selves.
