“Rosa’s Pilates classes really helped to keep me in shape and maintain my core strength throughout my pregnancy, which made getting back into shape afterwards a much easier and quicker process. I highly recommend Rosa's classes for anyone who wants to improve the way their body looks and feels.”
Nicky Hambleton-Jones,

I really enjoyed the pilates retreat, it was very relaxing and a beautiful spot - wonderful to be so close to the lake, and to see the hills from the roof terrace. Two hours of pilates went really quickly, I was very impressed by how Rosa made each morning different, and slightly more challenging each day. I definitely noticed the difference after just a week - my stomach was more or less back to its pre-baby state, and everything felt tighter and leaner, as well as much better posture.

"My Physio recommended I try 1:1 Pilates with Rosa for my back pain and core strength. After just one month of weekly sessions with her and some short practice sessions at home, I started to notice changes. My back pain was gradually easing up as my core strengthened.  My clothes started feeling looser as a result of the toning and inch loss brought about by the targeted Pilates moves. Besides this very satisfying auxiliary benefit, the breathing with each move slowed me down and helped me to relax, a very useful skill in those early frenetic days of sleepless nights with very young children. I couldn't have achieved this without Rosa. She is a warm and considerate person and an excellent teacher- precise and challenging with endless patience, she was aways calm, encouraging and good humoured. She was also fabulous with my little daughter who used to sit and play bemusedly while I was trying my best on the mat beside her!  Thanks to her, my confidence and energy increased and Pilates has now become part of my weekly routine".
Thank you Rosa!

"I have 3 young children and I was regularly getting a sore back from all the lifting and carrying, plus my stomach muscles were pretty non existent! Since attending Pilates with Rosa in Balham every Monday I have noticed a huge difference. I feel so much better, I now have my stomach muscles back and I have not had a single problem with my back for over a year.  Rosa is an excellent teacher and I really enjoy the lessons". Mandy Leach

"I started classes with pilatespluswellness when I was pregnant and the weekly sessions were invaluable in keeping me strong and minimising any aches and pains that were developing. Six weeks post birth I was back at normal classes and they've been great at returning my strength and control in my core and toning me back to shape. Mary is a fantastic instructor, I would highly recommend her regardless of your current experience or competence"

Just back from one week Pilates retreat in Turkey and I feel like a new woman! Much more toned in stomach, bottom and legs and generally stronger and fitter - all in one week!  I arrived feeling achy, unfit and tired and left a week later pain free, slimmer and raring to go - amazing!  Rosa's sessions are challenging, imaginative and never boring - 2 hours just fly by! Rosa somehow manages to get the best out of everyone in the class and is attentive and caring, ensuring everyone achieves their individual fitness goals. Everyone at the retreat is so friendly and accommodation and food were both lovely - thanks to Gul (owner) and lovely Fikret for my cups of tea! I will definitely be back!

I cannot recommend 1:1 pilates with Rosa highly enough. Rosa is a very encouraging, inspiring and gentle teacher. Whilst I started pilates a year ago to help with my back problems, I find it has become part of my everyday life with other great benefits of inch loss, improved tone and posture. It is also a great way to unwind after a stressful day. Thank you so much, Rosa.
Sarah, Battersea

Since training with Rosa my stomach has changed shape and is starting to rein itself back in. I am holding myself better now and I am losing inches. It's great when people say to you, "Gosh, you've lost weight". I feel a lot stronger than I have ever felt.
Sarah Heaney (TV Presenter of Wish You Were Here and Mum Of Two)

"Rosa is an amazing, motivating expert and incredibly patient. Ever since working with her my back has stopped hurting and I can wear 5 inch heels with impunity! Even after the most stressful day, one hour with Rosa and I am relaxed and calm again. I Recommend her highly."
Susanna Kempe CEO


I have recently returned from the retreat in Koycegiz. It was a fantastic week and I felt incrediby energised at the end of it. Rosa is an excellent Pilates teacher and tailored the exercises for our different needs – i.e. as I have some back and flexibility problems. She is a lovely and very caring person and is very interested in each individual and exactly what they are hoping to achieve. I had arrived with a very stiff back but felt much better by the end of the week after our 2 hour Pilates sessions on the roof terrace and also lost some inches round my middle. Swimming in the pool every morning before Pilates also helped I believe! We all looked forward to Gul’s scrumptious breakfasts which were amazing. I would heartily recommend this retreat – if you love Pilates, sunshine and a quiet, relaxing time then I am sure it would be perfect for you. So thank you to Rosa for being a very inspiring teacher and also to Gul for her wonderful hospitality (and food) during our stay." Christine Darby

"Rosa has helped me throughout my third pregnancy with a combination of pilates and body strengthening. I feel I have really benefitted from the sessions. As a result of regular workouts with Rosa I have felt strong and fit even at the end of my pregnancy and have not experienced the pelvic problems I encountered during my previous pregnancie"
Sadia McEvoy, London - UK

"As an Osteopath working in a busy practice I fully appreciate the benefit of a strong, stable and flexible spine, both for myself and my patients. Working with Rosa has definitely helped me protect my own back whilst helping others with theirs. Her attentive , analytical yet intuitive approach has produced rapid and lasting benefits. I would thoroughly recommend Rosa to my patients for her professional attitude, knowledge base and hugely positive demeanour. "

"Rosa has such a unique, gentle and kind manner I love working with her and look forwards to the Pilates sessions she does for me.
I suffered a back injury and Rosa has really assisted my recovery and rebuilt an all round strength throughout my body. "
Glenn Carter is currently starring in the acclaimed West End Show JERSEY BOYS (Tommy DeVito)

"I have been working with Rosa on personal training for the last 3 weeks, and already I have had amazing results. In this short time I have lost 3 inches around my waist, and nearly 2 inches from my arms, thighs and an inch from my hips and I feel truly fantastic! What makes Rosa's training so unique is the combination of the personal training and the pilates and it is this which has helped me achieve the results. Rosa takes time to make sure that I am getting what I want from the personal training sessions and keeps me motivated throughout. I have tried so many diets and fitness regimes in the past and have always struggled to maintain them, but with Rosa I am not only enjoying myself, but I am also seeing results I hadn't expected so quickly."
Emily Driver – Broker

"Rosa's approach to her teaching is so wonderfully enthusiastic, that she makes you never want to stop!. I first started pilates 5 years ago after a head injury. When i started with Rosa earlier this year, for the first time it began to be clear to me. With a loving gentle manner and her great knowledge of the techniques, she gives you the confidence that you will ultimately achieve the results you wish for.

Rosa has a wonderful approach to her life coaching sessions. She is a fantastic listener and her loving energy is always present only encouraging you to understand even more. The techniques that she uses are extremely effective and ultimately you come away feeling inspired."
Suzy Bastone, Actress

'Rosa is a fantastic teacher. The classes are well thought through and care is taken to really ensure you are perfecting your technique and improving week on week.'
Kate Hough

"I started pilates in the hope that it would help me deal with quite a serious back injury. I have previously found other exercise diffficult. But Rosa is a great pilates teacher. I am visually impaired and I wasn't sure if pilates would be possible. But Rosa has always been able to clearly explain and demonstrate the various techniques. She is lovely to work with and is endlessly patient and enthusiastic about what she does. I would be happy to recommend her to anyone."
Sara Utecht Editor


"Rosa is an exceptional fitness professional - more than just a fitness trainer she has provided me with advice and coaching on diet, motivation techniques as well as tailored and constantly evolving fitness training.  Her background as a medical professional and additional qualification in Pilates has enhanced Rosa ’s ability to customize my workouts achieving outstanding results in fitness, weight strength and tone. 

My job as a management consultant meant I often worked overseas and found it difficult to align this with a healthy eating plan and fitness goals.  In March at a weight of 78kg and with a body fat percentage of >40%
I began training with Rosa .  By August my weight has dropped to under 60kg and my body fat to 28%. 

It has required determination and commitment but that is where Rosa is so exceptional – she is really excellent at managing people through motivation lows and always has new ideas and tips to keep one on track.  Rosa is a nice person to be around; moreover her empathetic and intuitive style ensure that training works for YOU and as a result will become more enjoyable and deliver sustainable results."
Liz E. - Management Consultant, London - UK


" I started training with Rosa in December 2007, and have since continued to train with her. I have seen a considerable difference in my fitness level, stability and body shape. I have lost over 3 inches from my hips and 2.5 from my waist, which has changed my body shape immensely. I have lost more than 10% of my original body fat. I thoroughly enjoy my training with Rosa as it is not only fun and varied but very effective. Continuous coaching on lifestyle, nutrition and exercise from Rosa, has lead to my increased fitness and greater confidence.

I train with Rosa 2 times a week, she is always on time, chirpy and ready for our training session. Rosa pays a lot of attention to my posture, whilst combining Pilates and Personal Training. This has shifted my focus from weight loss to better health, posture and wellbeing.

If you are looking for a trainer that is professional, passionate about what she does and focused on helping you achieve results, then I would highly recommend Rosa. Feel free to contact me should you want to discuss any specifics."
Shradha Patel, London - UK


"Rosa is a gifted and experienced personal trainer and I greatly enjoy training with her. She makes each session fun; she motivates me and knows how to get the most out of me. Importantly, Rosa produces results!"
Barbara Meynert - Philanthropist and Entrepreneur, London - UK


"I've been a gym member for years and didn't think that training with Rosa would make much of a change. How wrong I was! I've only been training with her for about a month but my body shape has changed drastically - it's amazing! Rosa keeps me motivated and what's more important - she makes working out fun! I'm sure I will reach my goal in no time with her encouragement, skills and positive attitude."
Bettina - PA, London - UK "


Rosa is certainly a lovely, friendly, easy going, gentle and fun person however, I can honestly say that I haven't had anyone else who has pushed me over and over again past what I thought were my limits. After one session with the Rosa you really feel you have had your money's worth and more. Somehow I always managed to enjoy all of this intensive training.

Rosa is engaging and genuinely interested, this is clearly more than just a job for her. I am very happy with the results and I am now fitter than I have ever been. I also eat healthier which is due to Rosa's great knowledge on nutrition. Rosa now is training some of my friends who I have recommended her to. They are extremely happy with her performance and grateful for her sincere personal touch."
Harry French - Interpreter, London - UK


"I started working with Rosa before going skiing for the first time. Rosa immediately understood what I was trying achieve and set goals for me which kept me motivated to work hard through her carefully planned sessions.

No matter the weather or hour Rosa turned up with a smile and a laugh. Her training programmes are energising, invigorating and importantly fun, both body and mind are fresher at the end of the session. Rosa made my holiday a great success and I have continued working with her ever since."
Kate L.- Director, London - Uk


"I have been training with Rosa for over a month now and have had an amazing outcome already, with Rosa's help on being so motivating and supportive. I am already achieving my goals so far. Not only am i getting fit and losing weight my confidence has grown an i am getting back to the old me."
Suzanne Halil - Travel Consultant, London - UK


"I worked with Rosa over a period of 6 weeks with an objective of losing weight, toning up and trying new workouts. During this time she was really supportive and encouraging, giving me lots of hints and tips for diet and lifestyle as well as all round fitness.

She kept my objectives in mind and continually introduced new routines to try and keep me focused and on my toes! I found her very easy to work with and actually made the workouts
really good fun!"
Loraine Donington - Manager, London - UK


"I thought I was fit before I started training with Rosa, but I realised in my first session that Rosa made me look like I’d just started training. The first thing she did was balance my workouts giving an holistic training programme moving me away from pure cardio vascular work. She transformed my workouts injecting intensity and fun. She always smiles and encourages me as she gives me new and increasingly harder exercises each session. It’s fun to train with Rosa!"
Otto Balsiger - Audit Manager, London-UK

"I have attended two Pilates retreats run by Rosa in Turkey. We had excellent instruction undertaking a routine which was built upon throughout the week of each retreat. New exercises were explained and demonstrated clearly. The variety of the exercises gave us new options for our routines currently done at home. Our 2 hours instruction each day flew by. We really noticed the results of our hard work feeling more toned and stronger day by day. Rosa has found the most stunning location for these retreats and the hotel is amazing, you have not lived unless you have eaten breakfast at Gul's Rose Apart Hotel!
Save me a space for next year!" Jo P  Head of Research Nursing Dept.

"Rosa is an amazing, motivating expert and incredibly patient. Ever since working with her my back has stopped hurting and I can wear 5 inch heels with impunity! Even after the most stressful day, one hour with Rosa and I am relaxed and calm again. I Recommend her highly." Susanna Kempe CEO
