About the Studio

SW Pilates is a fully equipped Romana’s Classical Pilates Studio in Alderley Edge, Cheshire teaching the original work of Joseph Pilates. It is the only studio of its kind in the North West, offering a range of classes from group to private sessions.

The studio contains the full range of Gratz equipment specifically designed by Joseph Pilates, the most common and well known being the Reformer and the Cadillac. Each piece was specifically designed for a purpose; to help the body to strengthen and lengthen, stabilize and re-align.

The system of exercises developed by Joseph Pilates and Romana Kryzanowska, provides a beautiful structure. It is designed to help each individual body, from young to old and all the way through from injured to professional athlete. Whether it is to overcome a setback or injury, or to perfect a skill eg; dancer/sporting professional, Pilates is used to teach the body to move with control from the centre. It will make you stronger, more flexible, more co-ordinated and more  aware of how each body part relates to the next. Through movement we create strength and stretch with control. It is about how you do the exercises themselves that is key to strengthening the body.

The exercises are designed to help you  move with freedom in everyday life.

Saskia is a level V Romana’s Pilates teacher.

Saskia undertook her training as a Romana’s Pilates instructor at Kinetic Pilates in London with Rebecca Convey (Instructor Trainer Level III), the only Romana’s Pilates training course in the UK and Marjorie Oron (Master Instructor Trainer X) of The Pilates Studio in The Hague, whom she did all her tests and seminars with. Saskia has also undertaken this years CPE with Grand Master Instructor Trainer Level 1 – Sari Meja, daughter of Romana Kryzanowska.

Saskia was a professional dancer and after sustaining an injury during a performing contract, she then realised that a deeper understanding of movement, combined with strength, control and flexibility was needed to fully recover, improve her dance technique and remain injury free. She immediately noticed the difference that Pilates made to her movement quality and her ability to centre herself. After finishing the apprenticeship in London, Saskia moved on from her dance career to teach Pilates, which she did at the London studio from 2020-2022. She has now moved back up to Alderley, where she grew up, to open the only Romana’s Pilates studio in the North West. Saskia is very passionate about helping everyone move with freedom, without pain and taking the journey with you to achieve your goals.
