Katya’s videos reflect the real-life teacher-student setting, ensuring full exercise explanations and accurate corrections to improve technique and maximise the benefits of your Pilates practice.

Abs & Arms with Sam and Miree (42 min)

A delightful and challenging class with lots of laughs. Starting with an abdominal series, we proceed to some unique arm workouts using 500g weights (canned food is perfect for this) interlaced with a hip drill, and culminating in slow planks and cardio. This class focuses mostly on sagittal movement of the spine, targeting the connection between ribs and pubic bone. A perfect workout for clients with Lordosis.

Bums & Tums on a Chair in ‘that’ Red T-shirt (48 min)

A workout recorded in the midst of COVID quarantine, when all of us needed to feel less stiff and more capable. This one could qualify as a stretch class, was it not for the gruelling Chair work – a reminder that your fitness is multifaceted. The very special focus here is on hip mobility and strength. You will love this exercise selection if you wish to loosen up your every joint.

Stretch One (42 min)

This selection of stretches is suitable for any and every day, but particularly recommended after long periods of inactivity such as after illness, in times of sadness, or when lacking motivation. This class was recorded at the time of Total Lockdown and helped Katya and her clients to keep going and not lose hope.

Stretch Two (47 min)

If you are feeling stiff and sore following a hard workout, this class is an ideal way to recover through deep and strategic stretching, massaging your every muscle. Restore optimal alignment and help reduce lactic acid build up. Katya recorded this class to help in her own recovery after a hectic move to her Camps Bay studio.

Total Body Workout with Dorita and Jared (44 min)

If you enjoy Katya’s fascial line formula, this class is for you. A great workout involving complex combos that cover several muscle groups at the same time to maximize value for money. Strategically stretch, then tighten your every ‘screw’, working through each joint to ensure that no body part is left out.

Pilates for Sport with Rotation (41 min)

These sessions are perfect for tennis, golf and squash players, but equally relevant for anyone wanting to develop/preserve thoracic spine mobility. Starting with deep but safe spinal stretches, Katya moves on to hard isometric holds, pushing you to unexplored territories in which you defy gravity while seeking perfect symmetry. Special focus is placed on spinal rotation, lateral flexion and the medial fascial line (your internal rod), reflecting in better overall posture and mobility.

Swan Lake Arms with Dorita and Jared (52 min)

Very deliberate work through all planes of movement to increase mobility and strength in the hips. This workout places special emphasis on the upper arms and shoulders. Have fun as Katya leads Dorita and Jared in performing an extract from Swan Lake to Tchaikovsky’s original score. If you don’t die from arm burn, you will most likely end with an abdominal stitch brought on by this unexpected interpretation of a timeless piece.

007 with Lana and Anthony (49 min)

This class is guaranteed to make you sweat while challenging your stamina, balance and flexibility. Anthony and Lana will cover all planes of movement while demonstrating different exercise options. If you don’t have a cushion handy, improvise by squeezing your knees together, and by using a book or towel to support your head.

Chair Challenge with Dorita and Jared (45 min)

This one is a killer! Typical to Katya’s approach, you will start with some joint mobility moves to suitably prepare you for the hectic ‘spit roast planks’ in four directions using an ordinary chair. Look forward to some fun armwork at the end that will leave you smiling. Stand by with two tins of food to use as improvised weights.

General Strength on the Chair (44 min)

Prepare to work extra hard! This workout is designed to achieve perky buttocks and toned hips, while also working the rest of the body. Once again, the chair is our superstar. Have fun learning some ballet conditioning moves, as well as a few exercises that you can do in a sitting position at work.

Balanced Workout and Nice Stretch (44 min)

A very nice stretchy session in which we explore your full range of mobility to achieve the desired stability. Have a good time enjoying Push Ups, Screwdrivers, buttocks tightening squeezes and, of course, some challenging tummy work.

Hips, Tummy & Back Challenge with Dorita and Kate (56 min)

Challenge your balance, coordination and discipline in order to run faster and stay pain-free. Katya developed this workout, demonstrated by the lovely Dorita and Kate, to involve slow control and elevation of the heart rate, while working hips, tummy and back muscles all at the same time. This workout starts with a 13 minutes warm-up and explores arm toning and footwork.

Fascial Lines with Liliana and Tim (49 min)

In this hardcore video, Katya effectively combines original Joseph Pilates’ works with the Fascial Line Theory pioneered by Thomas Mayer and refined by Benita Kropman. Sometimes the Fascial lines are intentionally isolated, but in this workout they often overlap, leaving you feeling it exactly where you need it most. The result – a uniformly developed body with optimal posture that is resistant to gravity. Let’s call it the Kinski Method!

World of Birds with Lana and Anthony (49 min)

Join Lana and Anthony for a challenging workout. You will love the Pilates adrenaline and endorphins this class produces after a day sitting at work. Kicking off with stretches for the neck, shoulders and hips, our brave duo proceed to perform abdominal drills on their backs before leading into plank challenges. The upper back combo culminates in ‘World of Birds’ (arabesque in plié with spread Eagle arms). A session that will leave every muscle tingling.

Strong Obliques into Arabesque (44 min)

If you have limited time, twenty minutes of deep thoracic, cervical and lumbar rotational stretches will leave you feeling great. If you decide to stick around, some gruelling toning challenges involving all the layers of your powerhouse await. You will love the muscle-burning hip/abs coordination and ‘Russian Swing’ thoracic twists. This all leads to the ultimate spiral move: 007 Arabesque with straight supporting leg.

Fun on a Chair with Dorita and Cate (51 min)

Dorita and Kate are avid runners and looking at them it’s hard to believe that they are both mothers of three. This workout starts with fairly traditional advanced Kinski Pilates combinations that challenge control of the hips and shoulders: Advanced Teasers, Scissors with rotation, Single Leg Bananas, Breaststroke with Screwdriver, etc. Side planks on the chair lead into Arabesque with Penche. Good luck!

Glutes and Thighs Workout (45 min)

Delight in Katya’s signature humour as you energise your spinal joints and gently explore your hip mobility in preparation for a brutal glutes and outer thighs series. This will leave your whole body tingling with joy; ‘pain in the butt’ guaranteed!

Pilates for Runners with Colleen and Franziska (56 min)

Inspiring work by these two beautiful runners for whom Pilates is a lifestyle. Enjoy lots of challenges to the postural muscles, some burning footwork, and hip challenges specifically designed to promote the fine balance between pelvic stability and hip mobility. Prepare to build on each exercise at your own pace.

Core & More with Sam and Miree (46 min)

An advanced class in terms of strength, coordination and an intrinsic understanding of Pilates technique, topped with a healthy dose of creativity and, most importantly, a great sense of humour. With Sam and Miree we achieve all the above.

Slow Precision with Franziska (57 min)

Not an easy class, but recommended for anyone who needs a deliberate pace to polish technique, build confidence and achieve precision. The Kinski Pilates method often blends several classic Pilates moves into one to maximize the toning effect and increase functionality, while also involving several plains of movement. This class helps build a great foundation for more challenging ones to come.

Exercise Ball & Jumping Push Ups with Lily and Tim (45 min)

Practicing Pilates keeps you on the ball, quite literally, in this class. The technique stays the same but the Pilates ball spices it up as it challenges and pulls you in the direction of your strength. Learning to control the ball renders you invincible. Tim surprises us at the end with his incredible jumping push-ups. This is next level!

Armwork with Weights & Hipwork (48 min)

General intermediate workout involving the whole body. Kick off with ten minutes of arm toning followed by an abdominal combo, culminating in an inner and outer thigh fusion.

Twisting with Dorita & Jared (47 min)

Enjoy this new twist on some of the familiar Pilates moves. The stretches drop deeper, poses are held for longer, and the ‘James Bond lunges’ will leave your quadriceps positively burning.

Toning Arms & Hips (44 min)

Nearly half an hour of arm and shoulder girdle exercises supplemented by small weights to get your upper body burning. You can use any small weights, improvised or otherwise: 500g weights for ladies and 1kg for gents. End off with a few potent exercises targeting the hips to leave you feeling well worked for the duration of the day.

Hip Stability & Mobility in Lycra (46 min)

Are you struggling with slouching? Try this one. Recommended for strong beginner/intermediate level clients. Uncomplicated choreography, clear demonstrations and a slower pace will help you build stamina as a foundation for more complex workouts. This session covers the whole body with a special focus on the hips. Your feet and ankles aren’t forgotten either.

Inner & Outer Thigh Power – Side Alignment with Chelsea and Kenn (36 min)

Do you favour one side of your body or have scoliosis? This is the perfect challenge for you. Here we target inner and outer thighs, isolate the sides of the torso, and focus on medial, lateral, diagonal and spiral fascial lines. Improvise where a ball is needed by simply squeezing your legs together or using a cushion. Try a yoga block, or similar solid platform such as a chair or bench, instead of the box. Practice on the ground first if you struggle with balance work, or improvise by performing side planks on your mat.

Katya makes this complex topic super simple by explaining the concept of ideal plumb alignment in layman’s English (with a Russian accent, of course!). The Pilates system, taught under the guidance of an experienced instructor, can be an extremely valuable tool in achieving an ideal postural plumb line.

This workout with small weights provides a surprising challenge that will leave your arms and shoulders tingling. Perform this workout daily for a week and your arms will be transformed.
