Kerryn van der Merwe
Cape Town born and bred, Kerryn’s first love was ballet. She started training aged 5, and has been involved with dance ever since. Her experience across many different genres of dance – she’s a highly qualified Ballet, Modern, Tap and Street Dance teacher – has taught her how important overall physical fitness is.

Kerryn has always had a keen interest in anatomy and how the body should function optimally, inspiring her to train as a Pilates Instructor as well as to explore Progressive Ballet Technique training.

A firm believer that physical health and wellbeing should be accessible to all, regardless of their occupation, age or athletic capability, Kerryn loves working with clients from all walks of life to help them enhance their flexibility and strength. (But given her background, it’s probably no surprise that she particularly enjoys training dancers of any genre.)

Like most dancers she has experienced her fair share of injuries – including hip surgeries – and as a result, has a keen understanding of the need for rehab and rehab, and is passionate about helping her clients identify strengths and weaknesses in their body and address them effectively and safely through exercise.

She loves to share her knowledge with clients, so that they too have a greater understanding of their bodies and their potential.

When she’s not in the studio, she’s most likely to be running or scouring London for new ice cream spots. She’s also a massive fan of the arts and she loves to dance, write and enjoy theatre.

Liam Rodgers (Physio)
With a degree in Physiotherapy from the University of Queensland and a breadth of clinical experience in both Australia and the UK, Liam brings and in-depth understanding of anatomy and pathology to his classes.
 
With a background in dance and mat work pilates he places great emphasis on control and technique, whilst still making sure his sessions challenge his clients’ physical and fitness limits.
 
Liam chose to complete the TenAcademy in Dynamic Reformer Pilates to help teach his clients how to better control their body, get them stronger and ultimately moving better in daily life.
 
As a practicing Physiotherapist, Liam has extensive experience in exercise rehabilitation so for anyone looking for a rehabilitative or prehabilitative pilates experience his class are not to be missed. Classes can often have a yoga or dance element infused to broaden the client experience.
 
Bringing an upbeat and infectious energy (impressively even in his 7am session– Liam’s definitely a morning person), you won't leave his class without a smile, some aching muscles and a few beads of sweat.

Leah Willoughby
Leah holds a Bachelor of the Arts degree in Dance from UWL, where she also attained her Pilates Matwork qualification.

Coming from a professional dance background, core strength and the mobility of the body have always been at the forefront of her training. After finding the benefits of Pilates truly invaluable during her pregnancy, Leah’s passion for the exercise form grew, and she has been tutoring and furthering her training ever since.

Given Leah’s former career, it probably comes as no surprise that her classes focus heavily on precision of movement and postural improvement.

Leah is a strong believer in the benefits of movement and exercise both physically and mentally, whatever the body, whatever the age, whatever the lifestyle, and is on a mission to pump the world full of happy endorphins.

Outside of dynamic Pilates training, Leah can still be found teaching/attending dance classes and training in pole fitness. She also holds a 1st Dan black belt in Tae Kwon Do, so will have no trouble kicking butts of all shapes sizes and ages into shape!

Kim Hannessen
Growing up in Australia, Kim played any sport available, from tennis, basketball, calisthenics to athletics. At the age of twelve her mum made her choose two sports she enjoyed most to continue with long term, which ended up being softball and netball. A few years later, playing competitive level in softball she developed an awareness for exercise and rehabilitation and, it’s where her interest in anatomy and physiology started.
 

Kim completed her first degree in Human Movement and Sports Science in Adelaide. Her course provided valuable exposure to populations needing lifestyle modifications and health awareness, along with the opportunity to help them. The experience inspired Kim to complete a further degree in Exercise Physiology. She then worked for two years in Australia with a variety of populations suffering from chronic musculoskeletal and clinical conditions prescribing exercise to individuals with co-morbidities, including cardiovascular, metabolic and respiratory conditions.

 

Kim joins the TenClinical team after four years experience working in the NHS at Guy’s and St Thomas Hospital and brings a wealth of experience in clinical exercise prescription. This included specialised experience in diabetic populations, where she found particular satisfaction in helping her patients improve blood glucose profiles and reducing/prevent the need for further medication.

 

Kim loves helping her clients achieve their goals, big or small, and seeing the physical and mental differences these successes can make. She is massively client-focused and is an advocate of incorporating exercise into daily living whilst keeping it enjoyable. She enjoys nothing more that proving to people that you are never too young, too old or too ‘unfit’ to exercise.

Erica Foulds
Erica’s love and appreciation for both general fitness and precise movement started early, with classical ballet training. This dual passion for technique-driven exercise and a good old-fashioned workout can also is reflected in her many qualifications – she combines a degree in human communication science with qualifications in personal training, fitness instruction and indoor cycling.
Erica is equally happy helping people recover from serious injury (she has previously worked as an exercise rehab therapist in a clinical stroke rehabilitation unit) and pushing people to achieve their fitness goals (spin and gruelling outdoor fitness sessions are particular favourites of hers.)
For the majority of Erica’s career, she has worked for some of London's top financial institutions as a corporate fitness wellbeing advisor and personal trainer integrating health and fitness into the lives of the chronically time-poor.
Erica has a strong belief in the age old ‘healthy body, healthy mind’ motto and her passion is about making it available for all.
When not at the studio you can find her on a bike (with the latest Ibiza mixes keeping her on the pace) or tapping her toes to the beat at a Dalston jazz cafe.

Rafael Cunha
Born and raised in Brazil, Rafael has always had a keen interest in sport and exercise, enjoying everything from football to handball, volleyball to basketball, running to capoeira and swimming to surfing.
 
 
His passion for exercise and for understanding the positive effect movement has on the human body led him to complete an undergraduate degree in Physical Education in 2008, followed by a postgraduate degree in Physiology of Exercise in 2015.

 

After graduating, Rafael began his career working as a personal trainer for both adults and children. Throughout his career he has also been involved in coaching and teaching a range of sports, leading capoeira groups, running social projects, organising boot camps and sports championships, and he even founded his own running group.

 

Believing that the human body truly is made to move, Rafael credits the skeletal system as the thing that allows us to live our lives to the maximum.

 

It’s this interest in musculoskeletal health that led him to train both as a Pilates instructor and study Tui Na massage, further improving his knowledge and understanding of human anatomy and in turn helping him to address muscular imbalances.

 

Having previously worked with people who faced hernias, disc protrusion, sciatic nerve issues, back pain and postural imbalances, Rafael enjoys helping people improve their quality of movement, overall fitness and general health.

 

This experience also taught him the importance of looking after our bodies, so that we can continue to live healthy and active lives without aches and pains.

 

Rafael takes a tailored approach to each client, understanding their needs, respecting their limitations and observing existing imbalances in the musculoskeletal system, which enables him to develop individual plans to help his clients achieve their goals. Whether that is to reduce pain and discomfort or increase tone, his programmes are developed to help clients strengthen the right muscles and restore balance.

Prior to achieving his Diploma in Personal Training and Nutrition, Vinny worked in Health and Social Care, enabling marginalised populations lead full and active lives. He also holds additional qualifications in Supple Strength training, Running Coaching and Studio Cycling.
Before joining TenPilates, Vinny worked with a variety of individuals from sedentary desk-based professionals to professional dancers and actors.
With every client Vinny's initial focus is on postural support and effective functional movement. He believes that once the musculoskeletal system - the body's scaffolding - is correctly aligned and strong the only limitations are your genetics and your motivation!
Vinny also maintains a keen interest in nutritional analysis and support, believing that fuelling your body for your lifestyle is key to meeting and maintaining your goals while maximising energy levels and vitality.
In his (few) spare hours Vinny enjoys a variety of different activities including mountain biking, swimming, rock climbing, body sculpting, riding and (most importantly) busting shapes on the dance floor!

Maria Athanaseli
With an BSc in Sports Science and an MSc in Applied Nutrition and Dietetics, Maria is passionate about improving overall well-being, through the combination of nutrition and exercise.

Eager to extend her knowledge and increase her skills as a Personal Trainer, she attended a private fitness school, in parallel with her studies. Throughout her career, she has continued to seek out opportunities for education and training and further enhance her abilities.

An athlete from childhood, Maria studied ballet classes and rhythmic gymnastics up until the start of her undergraduate studies. She discovered and quickly fell in love with Pilates at University.

An EREPS Certified Personal Trainer and Pilates Teacher (EQF Level 4), Maria is qualified across the full range of Pilates equipment, including Mat, Reformer, Tower and Chair. For the past few years, she has worked at some of Athens’ leading private gym clubs, and more recently as a Nutritionist assistant, formulating individual diet plans for clients.

Her never-ending passion and energy to learn innovative ideas and concepts led her to relocate to London and become part of the Ten team.

Maria enjoys being surrounded by joyful and positive people who maintain a healthy lifestyle and enjoy the emotional, mental and physical benefits of regular exercise.

Gurdev Hanspal

Having completed a BSc in Sports Therapy, Gurdev is now in the process of completing an MSc at St Mary’s Twickenham in Strength and Conditioning, so it’s no surprise that he is able to call upon a breadth of knowledge and range of coaching methods in order to help people achieve better mobility.

 

Having previously worked with a multitude of athletes in the disciplines of Track and Field, Football, American Football and Rugby, he’s also no stranger to performance enhancement and it’s also extremely important that he is able to ensure his clients reach their goals.

 

His interest in Pilates stems from its connection to the central nervous system, which controls the body’s movement. Gurdev has found that by incorporating a range of equipment, including the Reformer, into traditional Pilates exercises, he can teach his to create, embed and maintain better patterns of movement. This means that he can enable his clients to achieve their fitness goals whilst reducing unnecessary strain on the body, and helping them avoid injury or discomfort.

 

When it comes to his own body, he has always had a keen interest in contact sports such as Boxing and Muay Thai, and he’s recently started training in the discipline of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under multiple world champion, Braulio Estima.

 

Gurdev admires Braulio as a great master of the sport, who has helped him to focus both his body and mind using similar principles to the ones that underpin Pilates.

 

It’s these principles that have helped him improve his own ability to control his body during movement, from the core and trunk through to the extremities, even under fatigue. He is now able to understand how to control his body from proximal to distal aspect. And he enjoys nothing more than transferring this knowledge to his clients.

Ellie Jamieson
Ellie’s sport and fitness journey started young, with ballet, tap and contemporary dance training. Her belief that exercise is medicine and her passion to help people made choosing a career easy. She now holds a bachelor or science degree in sport and exercise for health from the University of Kent.

Ellie has many years of experience working in rehabilitation, specialising on clients with Parkinson’s, Stroke and Cardiovascular disease.

Every spare minute away from her rehabilitation classes was spent in the gym, where Ellie discovered to find a strong link between mind and body and its positive impact on physical strength and stamina, and mental wellbeing. As a result, she was inspired to organise sporting events and provide personal training sessions for her peers at university, as a way to help battle them combat the effects of stress, and maintain mental balance and health.

With Ellie’s experience working with many different populations, it comes naturally to her to adapt to any individual in any situation.

Naturally upbeat, positive and motivated, Ellie’s goal is to inspire everyone she comes into contact with to live a more active daily lifestyle – for her, there is nothing more important than health.

Tommy Marshall
Tommy has been physically active for as long as he can remember, playing recreational to semi-professional football over the years before a back condition stopped him in his tracks.

Combining a lifelong enthusiasm for movement and activity with his love of science, Tommy took his first career step by graduating from the University of Bath with an MSci Sports and Exercise Science degree.

A postgraduate season with the first team of Bristol City Football Club gave Tommy the opportunity to lead both gym and pitch based prehab/rehab sessions as well as taking the players through their strength and conditioning programs on a one to one and group basis.

It was also this experience – good as it was – that motivated him to move away from professional football and follow a deeper passion that had developed for helping people achieve their goals through exercise. Especially when underpinned by science and research.

Tommy is a firm believer that exercise is medicine. He loves helping people meet their goals no matter how big or small – meeting any goal is a step in the right direction. He is driven and enthusiastic to help empower you to reach your full potential.

In his spare time Tommy can be found in the gym, at the London Stadium watching his beloved West Ham United (which usually ends in disappointment) or exploring a new part of the world.

Anser Amado
Anser has been upbeat and active from early childhood. Always keen to develop both physically and mentally, he credits his fluency in three languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese) with keeping his mind open to new influences and knowledge.

A keen footballer for many years, Anser has been passionate about exercise for as long as he can remember. Deciding to make it his career allowed him to unite his twin passions: fitness and the capability to help inspire and develop others.

With 10 years’ experience in the fitness industry, Anser specialises in strength and conditioning, weight loss, HiiT, core training, calisthenics and Reformer Pilates. He particularly enjoys bodyweight-based workouts, as he believes we should all be comfortable working with our own bodyweight before lifting weights.

His interest in Dynamic Pilates stems from understanding that the core provides the foundation for any functional movement. He soon realised the benefits it could offer for his own calisthenics training, not to mention it’s ability to help maximize performance in every any other sport or discipline.

While Anser enjoys socialising with friends and family, he’ll always ring-fence time each week to work on his own personal and fitness goals.

Frances Bowden
Frances has had a love for sport as long as she can remember. Running around a hockey field on frosty Sunday mornings aged eight eventually evolved into a degree in Sport and Exercise Science at Loughborough University (though she can still be found running around a hockey field on frosty Sunday mornings).

Over the course of her degree, Frances developed a passion for exercise prescription and lifestyle modification, wanting to help people move better whilst living heathier and happier lives.

Frances enjoys the client journey, focusing on all aspects of exercise, nutrition and lifestyle to achieve the kind of functional and sustainable results that will benefit a client every single day. She works to the needs of the body, developing strength and flexibility whilst identifying and correcting muscular imbalances created by our 21st century lifestyle to minimise the risk of injury.

Frances loves nothing more than proving to someone that they can do something and that, with the right attitude, anyone can achieve anything.

Over the past three years, she has worked with a range of clients from age 16 to late 80s with both clinical and non-clinical backgrounds. She has helped people from all walks of life achieve their goals, whether that’s to return to walking unaided right through to helping clients return to top-level competitive sport.

Dynamic Reformer Pilates adds another string to Frances’ bow and she is passionate about its seemingly unlimited potential for rehab and for developing the building blocks for functional strength training.

Upbeat, encouraging and super-smiley, Frances brings a warmth and infectious enthusiasm to her classes – along with a breadth of technical knowledge and experience.

Jennifer Bentley
From a young age Jen practised various disciplines of dance, including Ballet and Tap, and also Disco dancing, where she regularly danced competitively at events across the country. The first time she experienced Pilates was during dance classes as a teen, and was intrigues from the outset.

Whilst she loved her years of dancing, she moved to Bristol aged 18 to study a BA in Primary Teaching. Despite graduating with a 2.1 degree, she quickly realised that the school classroom was not for her, and that her true passion and vocation lay in movement and fitness.

In 2010 she completed her Level 3 Personal Training qualification and since then has have worked many of London’s leading gyms and fitness studios training clients 1-1 and leading TRX and PowerPlate classes. She later went on to gain her Mat Pilates certificate.

Jen credits Pilates entirely for allowing her to regain her core strength and stability and getting her back into shape quickly after the birth of her son over 4 years ago. What she loves most about Pilates is the amount of focus needed in order to execute each exercise with control and precision. Unsurprisingly, her classes will encourage you to zone out from all other distractions so you can achieve a great mind-body connection that lets you feel each movement – and its benefits.

In her free time you will find Jen spending time with her little boy and trying out different food spots in London – she does love a naughty burger – which she will burn off later at the gym!

Lyndall Smith
Born and raised in South Africa, Lyndall’s interest in health and fitness stems from a young age. Since she was 8 years old, she was part of a lifesaving fraternity and represented both KZN and Gauteng in Surf and Stillwater Lifesaving.

Having served her community as a voluntary life guard at various aquatic venues for over four years, it’s no surprise that her interest in physical fitness and medical related services developed further and led her to pursue a Bachelors of Arts in Human Movement Science.

Jennifer Bentley
From a young age Jen practised various disciplines of dance, including Ballet and Tap, and also Disco dancing, where she regularly danced competitively at events across the country. The first time she experienced Pilates was during dance classes as a teen, and was intrigues from the outset.

Whilst she loved her years of dancing, she moved to Bristol aged 18 to study a BA in Primary Teaching. Despite graduating with a 2.1 degree, she quickly realised that the school classroom was not for her, and that her true passion and vocation lay in movement and fitness.

In 2010 she completed her Level 3 Personal Training qualification and since then has have worked many of London’s leading gyms and fitness studios training clients 1-1 and leading TRX and PowerPlate classes. She later went on to gain her Mat Pilates certificate.

Jen credits Pilates entirely for allowing her to regain her core strength and stability and getting her back into shape quickly after the birth of her son over 4 years ago. What she loves most about Pilates is the amount of focus needed in order to execute each exercise with control and precision. Unsurprisingly, her classes will encourage you to zone out from all other distractions so you can achieve a great mind-body connection that lets you feel each movement – and its benefits.

In her free time you will find Jen spending time with her little boy and trying out different food spots in London – she does love a naughty burger – which she will burn off later at the gym!
