Abs and Arms with Sam & Miree (42 min)

A delightful and challenging class with lots of laughs. Starting with abdominal series it proceeds to some unique arm work using 500g weights (canned food is perfect for this), interlaced with hip drill, it ends with slow planks and some cardio. This class mostly focuses on sagittal movement of the spine and targets the connection between ribs and pubic bone therefore most beneficial for clients with Lordosis.

Bums + Tums + Chair (48 min)

This workout was recorded in the midst of COVID Quarantine when all wanted to feel less stiff and more capable. It could have been qualified as a Stretch Class if it was not for the gruelling Chair work that reminds you that your fitness is a multi-faceted issue. You will love this selection if you wish to loosen up your every joint. The very special focus here is on your hip mobility and strength.

Stretch Session 1 (42 min)

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

Stretch Session 2 (47 min)

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

Total Body Workout with Dorita & Jared (44 min)

If you enjoy Katya’s fascial line formula - this class is for you.  Great workout, tightening your every “screw”, going through every joint, ensuring that no body part is left out. Complex combos that cover several muscle groups at the same time to maximise your value for money. Not to forget about strategic stretching.  

Pilates for Sport with Rotation (41 min)

It is a great class for tennis, golf, squash players but it is also very suitable for anyone who wants to develop/preserve mobility of thoracic spine. Starting with deep but safe spinal stretches Katya moves to hard isometric holds, pushing you to unexplored territories where you defy gravity and look for perfect symmetry. Special focus is on spinal rotation, lateral flexion and medial fascial line (your internal rod), which reflects in overall better posture.

Swan Lake Arms with Dorita & Jared (52 min)

Very deliberate work to increase mobility and strength of the hips in all planes of movement. There is also a special emphasis on the upper arms and shoulders where Katya together with Dorita and Jared brave themselves to perform an extract from Swan Lake to the Tchaikovsky’s original score. If you will not die from the arm burn, you will most likely have an abdominal stitch, promoted by the unexpectedly committed interpretation of this timeless music.

007 with Lana & Anthony (49 min)

Guaranteed to make you sweat. This class has a faster pace and challenges your stamina, balance, flexibility and covers all planes of movement. Should you not have a cushion you can simply squeeze knees together and use a book or a towel for supporting your head. Anthony and Lana help to demonstrate different options.

Chair Challenge with Dorita & Jared (45 min)

This one is a killer! It is a part of Katya’s approach to start with some joint mobility moves, while deceptively preparing you for the hectic “spit roast” planks in all 4 direction, using an ordinary chair. At the end expect some fun arm work that will make you smile. Prepare two tins of food as your improvised hand weights.

General Strength + Chair (44 min)

Prepare to work extra hard! This workout is designed to achieve perky buttocks and toned hips, while working the rest of the body. Once again the chair is our super-star. You will learn some ballet conditioning moves as well as few exercises that you can do at work in sitting position.

Balanced Workout and Nice Stretch (44 min)

Very nice and stretchy session where we explore your full mobility to achieve the desired stability. In addition, you will still have your Push ups, Screwdriver, Buttocks tightening squeezes and, of course, some tummy work. Have a good time!

Hips, Tummy & Back with Dorita & Cate (56 min)

In order to favour the needs of our beautiful runners Dorita and Cate, Katya develops a workout which involves slow control and elevates your heart rate while working hips, tummy and back muscles all at the same time. The workout starts with 13 minutes warm up and explores arm toning and foot work. Challenge your balance, coordination and discipline to help you run faster and pain free.

Fascia Lines Combo with Liliana & Tim (49 min)

In this hard-core 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 can be intentionally isolated, but in this workout they often overlap, making you burn exactly where you need it most. The result is - the uniformly developed body with the optimal posture that is resistant to gravity. Let’s call it the Kinski method!

Postural Strength & The World of Birds (49 min)

Lana and Anthony work hard. You will love this class after a day of sitting at work when you want to feel the Pilates adrenaline and endorphins. First, they loosen up their necks, shoulders and hips and proceed to perform abdominal drill on their backs leading to more more plank challenges. Eventually, the upper back combo culminates in the ‘World of Birds’ (Arabesque in plié with spread Eagle arms). Every muscle tingles.

Strong Obliques with Plum Color Top (44 min)

If you have limited time, 20 minutes of deep thoracic, cervical and lumbar rotational stretches will make you feel great. If you decide to stay, the gruelling toning challenges involving all the layers of your Power-house await you. You will love the burning hip/abs coordination, “Russian Swing”, thoracic twists. All of this leads to the ultimate spiral move: 007-Arabesque with straight supporting leg.

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

Dorita and Kate are runners and it is hard to believe that each one of them are mothers of 3 children. Their workout starts with the fairly traditional advanced Kinski Pilates combinations to challenge the control of the hips and shoulders: Advanced Teasers, Scissors with rotation, single leg Bananas, Breaststroke with Screwdriver etc. The side planks on the chair lead to Arabesque with Penche. Good luck!

Glutes & Thights Deluxe (45 min)

With her signature humour Katya energises your spinal joints and gently explores your hip movement in preparation to the brutal glutes and outer thighs series that leave your whole body tingling with joy. “Pain in a butt” is guaranteed.

Pilates for Runners with Colleen & Franziska (56 min)

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

Core and More with Sam & Miree (46 min)

This is an advanced class in terms of strength, coordination, creativity, intrinsic understanding of Pilates technique and, most importantly, the sense of humour. With Sam and Miree we can achieve all of the above.

Slow Precision with Franziska (57 min)

Not an easy class but it is recommended for anyone who needs a deliberate pace to polish the technique and to build confidence and precision. The Kinski Pilates method usually blends several classical Pilates moves into one to maximise the toning effect and to make them more functional while involving several plains of movement at the same time. This class helps to builds a great foundation.

Exercise Ball & Jumping Push-Ups with Liliana & Tim (45 min)

Some people believe that Pilates is something you can do on a ball… They are right! The technique stays the same but the ball makes it even more interesting because it always pulls you in the direction of your strength. Learning to control the ball makes you invincible. At the end, Tim surprises us with the incredible jumping push-up, this is the next level!

Arm Work with Weights + Hip Work (48 min)

General intermediate workout for the whole body. You will enjoy the arm toning for the first 10 minutes, followed by the abdominal combo and, finally, inner and outer thighs fusion.

Twisting with Dorita & Jared (47 min)

Not only the stretches twist deeper, poses are held for longer but there is also a new twist on some of the familiar Pilates moves. “James Bond” lunges, will make your quadriceps burn.

Toning Arms & Hips (44 min)

Nearly half an hour of the arm and shoulder girdle exercises with small weights will make your upper body burn. You can use any improvised small weights: 500gr for ladies and a 1 kilogram for gents. A few potent exercises for your hips at the end of the class will make you feel exercise guilt-free for, at least, the rest of your day.

Hips Mobility & Stability (46 min)

Recommended for strong beginner/intermediate level. Uncomplicated choreography, clear demonstrations and slower pace in the class will help you build stamina as a foundation for more complex workouts. There is a special focus on the hips but it is a workout for the whole body. Your feet and ankles are not forgotten either. Are you struggling with slouching? Try this one.

Inner and Outer Thighs Power. Side alignment with Chelsea and Kenn (36 min)

If you favour one side of your body or have scoliosis you will find it an interesting challenge. Target inner and outer thighs, isolate the sides of your torso. Medial, lateral, diagonal and spiral fascial lines are in focus. Where ball is used you can simply squeeze your legs together or use a cushion. Instead of the box try to use a yoga block or a similar solid platform, if you struggle with balance- try on the floor first. Prepare a regular chair or a bench, otherwise improvise on your mat with side planks.

Abs and Arms with Sam & Miree (42 min)

Starting with abdominal series it proceeds to some unique arm work using 500g weights (canned food is perfect for this), interlaced with hip drill, it ends with slow planks and some cardio.

Very nice and stretchy session where we explore your full mobility to achieve the desired stability. In addition, you will still have your Push ups, Screwdriver, Buttocks tightening squeezes and, of course, some tummy work. Have a good time!

Hips, Tummy & Back with Dorita & Cate (56 min)

In order to favour the needs of our beautiful runners Dorita and Cate, Katya develops a workout which involves slow control and elevates your heart rate while working hips, tummy and back muscles all at the same time. The workout starts with 13 minutes warm up and explores arm toning and foot work. Challenge your balance, coordination and discipline to help you run faster and pain free.

Fascia Lines Combo with Liliana & Tim (49 min)

In this hard-core 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 can be intentionally isolated, but in this workout they often overlap, making you burn exactly where you need it most. The result is - the uniformly developed body with the optimal posture that is resistant to gravity. Let’s call it the Kinski method!

Postural Strength & The World of Birds (49 min)

Lana and Anthony work hard. You will love this class after a day of sitting at work when you want to feel the Pilates adrenaline and endorphins. First, they loosen up their necks, shoulders and hips and proceed to perform abdominal drill on their backs leading to more more plank challenges. Eventually, the upper back combo culminates in the ‘World of Birds’ (Arabesque in plié with spread Eagle arms). Every muscle tingles.

Strong Obliques with Plum Color Top (44 min)

If you have limited time, 20 minutes of deep thoracic, cervical and lumbar rotational stretches will make you feel great. If you decide to stay, the gruelling toning challenges involving all the layers of your Power-house await you. You will love the burning hip/abs coordination, “Russian Swing”, thoracic twists. All of this leads to the ultimate spiral move: 007-Arabesque with straight supporting leg.

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

Dorita and Kate are runners and it is hard to believe that each one of them are mothers of 3 children. Their workout starts with the fairly traditional advanced Kinski Pilates combinations to challenge the control of the hips and shoulders: Advanced Teasers, Scissors with rotation, single leg Bananas, Breaststroke with Screwdriver etc. The side planks on the chair lead to Arabesque with Penche. Good luck!

Glutes & Thights Deluxe (45 min)

With her signature humour Katya energises your spinal joints and gently explores your hip movement in preparation to the brutal glutes and outer thighs series that leave your whole body tingling with joy. “Pain in a butt” is guaranteed.

Pilates for Runners with Colleen & Franziska (56 min)

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

Core and More with Sam & Miree (46 min)

This is an advanced class in terms of strength, coordination, creativity, intrinsic understanding of Pilates technique and, most importantly, the sense of humour. With Sam and Miree we can achieve all of the above.

Slow Precision with Franziska (57 min)

Not an easy class but it is recommended for anyone who needs a deliberate pace to polish the technique and to build confidence and precision. The Kinski Pilates method usually blends several classical Pilates moves into one to maximise the toning effect and to make them more functional while involving several plains of movement at the same time. This class helps to builds a great foundation.

Exercise Ball & Jumping Push-Ups with Liliana & Tim (45 min)

Some people believe that Pilates is something you can do on a ball… They are right! The technique stays the same but the ball makes it even more interesting because it always pulls you in the direction of your strength. Learning to control the ball makes you invincible. At the end, Tim surprises us with the incredible jumping push-up, this is the next level!

Arm Work with Weights + Hip Work (48 min)

General intermediate workout for the whole body. You will enjoy the arm toning for the first 10 minutes, followed by the abdominal combo and, finally, inner and outer thighs fusion.

Twisting with Dorita & Jared (47 min)

Not only the stretches twist deeper, poses are held for longer but there is also a new twist on some of the familiar Pilates moves. “James Bond” lunges, will make your quadriceps burn.

Toning Arms & Hips (44 min)

Nearly half an hour of the arm and shoulder girdle exercises with small weights will make your upper body burn. You can use any improvised small weights: 500gr for ladies and a 1 kilogram for gents. A few potent exercises for your hips at the end of the class will make you feel exercise guilt-free for, at least, the rest of your day.

Hips Mobility & Stability (46 min)

Recommended for strong beginner/intermediate level. Uncomplicated choreography, clear demonstrations and slower pace in the class will help you build stamina as a foundation for more complex workouts. There is a special focus on the hips but it is a workout for the whole body. Your feet and ankles are not forgotten either. Are you struggling with slouching? Try this one.

Inner and Outer Thighs Power. Side alignment with Chelsea and Kenn (36 min)

If you favour one side of your body or have scoliosis you will find it an interesting challenge. Target inner and outer thighs, isolate the sides of your torso. Medial, lateral, diagonal and spiral fascial lines are in focus. Where ball is used you can simply squeeze your legs together or use a cushion. Instead of the box try to use a yoga block or a similar solid platform, if you struggle with balance- try on the floor first. Prepare a regular chair or a bench, otherwise improvise on your mat with side planks.
