  1. Having suffered minor back problems for a number of years – I guess that’s what sitting at a desk for eight hours a day does to you – I turned to Pilates on the recommendation of a friend. After a few classes with Charlette my back has caused me far less irritation, my posture has improved and most importantly: it feels healthier. Charlette has a great way with clients, her instructions help you focus your mind and control your body’s movements. I’d definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a Pilates teacher in Wandsworth/Richmond.

  2. I did a series of Charlette’s classes while in Bali and I found her style very calm and present. Her instructions are easy to follow and she gently takes you through the practice, allowing you to become centred and balanced both internally and externally. I look forward to taking more of her classes and would recommend her to anyone wishing to practise at any level.

  3. I have been doing Pilates for twice a week at different venues since a nasty car accident in year 2008, and over that period have met a number of instructors. Of all the classes I enjoy your classes most of all, and find the exercises most helpful to maintain mobility, even if some are a little challenging!

    You maintain a good flowing pace throughout the class, introducing new exercises and variations of familiar exercises with what seems like an infinite portfolio. The explanations and dialogue are clear, concise and fluent, something not all instructors are able to achieve. You also have a very warm, friendly and personal approach, that makes the class a delight to experience for all ages and levels of ability.

  4. I feel like I came to you with a lot of baggage because I have a few medical conditions.
    You make me feel safe in class and make changes so that I can do all of the exercises. You have time to answer all of my questions before and after class and you make me feel like I can do anything!

  5. I come to your classes in Kuwait. I feel like I am in Heaven, I feel so happy in your class.

    My classes here come first and then I book my schedule around your classes. I feel like a family member here and I miss you at the weekends!

  6. Charlette instantly lights up the room, any room, whenever she’s around, I almost immediately feel good. I don’t know if it’s because of her character or energy or both, but to me she’s an important asset to my yoga center. She pushes me and allows me to grow both physically and personally. She radiates and makes us all feel good. She is now an important part of my day, she is like family really.

  7. I tried Pilates with Charlette after the recommendation of a friend and I fell in love with the amazing feeling I get after each class, she helped me improve my posture, the way I think about my body and pushed me to try new things.
    I still hear her tell me to “tuck tuck tuck my ribs” “don’t make apple juice!” 🍏.
    I enjoyed our time together and wish you all the best.

  8. Hello from Kuwait 🇰🇼

    I came to Charlette with a pain in my shoulder and hopes to start working out regularly.
    Four months later I have been transformed… The pain has gone and I can’t miss a class with her, at the end of each session I feel so proud of myself. Charlette is a wonderful teacher, she brings out the best in you, she is cheerful, funny, and she motivates. She will always ensure that you correctly perform every exercise… I keep hearing her all day, outside of class “ribs connected, stay neutral!”

    Bali you are lucky to have Charlette, it’s time to change someones life. I will miss our PT classes.

  9. Just a quick note to thank you for everything you have done while training me over the past months.

    Pilates ( mat & reformer) with Charlette was my Key to a new practice that I enjoyed & I got to understand very well by her amazing imagery and explanations that I always love because I can understand them easily without having extensive knowledge about sports or my body.

    Charlette is always very encouraging and has a vast knowledge of her profession. She always tell me that “You can do it!” and by that I have been able to evolve and step out of my comfort zone.

    Wish you all the best,

    Saba, Kuwait

  10. We have really enjoyed our classes with Charlette and miss her already! She is a fantastic teacher with an incredible Pilates knowledge, a wonderful instructor who always corrects and is patient to explain the why’s and how’s.

  11. I only practiced Pilates with you a few times in Bali but those classes were so rewarding and memorable. You left this beautiful island too soon. I soooo hope I get to work with you again sometime, please let me know when you’re back!

  12. Hi! Just wanted to say that I really enjoyed your barre classes! You made every class really good fun and challenging. You bring great energy to the class and you are missed in Bali…come back! 😀

  13. Charlette is not only a wonderful yoga teacher but she permanently radiates a happy calmness that is infectious. I am only two lessons in, but already hooked. As well as the obvious physical benefits, the profoundly deep sense of relaxation you take away with you is invaluable. Thank you Letty!

  14. As a recent recruit to yoga, I quickly discovered my preference for the slower pace of a restorative style. Letty’s classes are perfect, a great antidote to a hectic lifestyle and compliment a more intense exercise regime perfectly.

    She has a natural teaching ability explaining not only the poses but guiding the mind and body too. With the sessions feeling therapeutic and relaxing, I am certainly a convert.

  15. I am extremely passionate about Pilates, so practising Yoga with Letty has been a new experience for me. I’ve been participating in Letty’s Yoga for a month now and I can honestly say I absolutely love it. I’ve not missed a session since starting unless I’ve been away!
    I can switch off, calm my mind and I love the meditative state that I experience from every Yoga class. I’m learning to exercise my mind and body in a different way then I’m used to and the release from several poses has been quite an emotional but positive experience!
    We never stop learning and teachers who love to educate with a natural generosity are priceless.
    Thank you Letty. Toni x

  16. I’m so happy to have discovered Letty’s Pilates class. She explains clearly each set of movements and allows everyone in the session to work at their own pace.
    Letty never pushes me beyond what I feel I can achieve, but at each session I’ve surprised myself with how much more I’m capable of. I leave the session feeling relaxed and refreshed.

  17. Have been having one on one Pilates lessons with Charlette now for about twelve weeks and I feel so much better for it. I started going to see Charlette (Letty) as I was feeling unstable on my feet and falling over at least once a week. Letty is an absolute diamond talking through every exercise so that you understand what your doing from the start of the exercise to the end. Her attitude is amazing and I always look forward to the next class. I now feel that I walk taller and my balance has improved no end. Thank you Letty.

  18. Letty is such a wonderful ray of light and the passion she has for yoga and Pilates is apparent. For years I’ve struggled to ‘let go’ and really focus on myself and with Letty’s help I’ve managed to do it. I love my classes with her and look forward to them on a weekly basis. Releasing all the negativity life throughs at us on a daily basis, plus letting go of the baggage we’ve carried for years. Suffering from PTSD, this is like medication for my mind, body and soul and I wish I’d found it sooner. Letty is not only fantastic at what she does but her energy and compassion is so compelling and the positivity she gives to the class shines so bright. If you’re looking for a teacher and a spiritual guide, Letty is the one 🙂 xx

  19. During late 2017, I was diagnosed that I had mild scoliosis and a slipped disc. I finished the number of therapies needed to cure my back conditions, unfortunately, nothing changed. I felt the lightness of my body for only after the therapy session, but it came back the following day. I tried the yoga class here and it is my 4th month and I can see the improvement of my back. I would recommend to try and attend the class for a couple of times and you will see a positive result.

  20. Letty creates a wonderfully calm and therapeutic atmosphere in her yoga sessions. She thoughtfully plans her lessons, adjusting carefully for different abilities.
    I always feel better both physically and mentally afterwards. Just fantastic!

    Jane, Kent
