Wed 20 October7:00amLive - Dynamic Bodyweight Pilates (Intermediate)
If you’ve done Mat Pilates before, this isn’t it. What it is, is a dynamic, flowing and demanding whole body workout that will develop postural alignment, strength, endurance and muscular balance. While we’ll focus – as always – on control, form and technique, Ten’s trademark dynamic flow between exercises means you’ll pack plenty of movement – and challenge – into each session.

Francesca Denton
Francesca has loved sport and exercise from childhood, playing everything from netball and football, to street dance and charity half marathons.

She discovered Kickboxing whilst studying Sport and Exercise Science at Loughborough University, and having trained for 4 years to achieve her black belt she became the ladies university middleweight national champion in 2017.

Francesca has always been an advocate of Exercise as Medicine, leading her to complete a placement year at the Leicester Diabetes Research Centre at Leicester General Hospital and also at The National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine. Working closely with physiotherapists, doctors and research staff, she gained valuable experience and knowledge of clinical exercise with a range of different populations particularly diabetic, COPD and cardiac patients.

Through her research experience, evidence-based practice has become one of her core values. She continually strives to apply new findings to improve her client’s workouts.

Keen to create a more a holistic approach to treating and training her clients, Francesca completed her sports massage qualification. She believes massage should be an important element of any client’s programme, not just to help tackle and prevent injuries, but also for relieving tension and stress from daily life as well as to improve recovery between exercise sessions.

Committed helping people live healthy, fulfilled and happy lives through exercise, no matter what their ability, Francesca’s passion is to help people learn to love exercise and to build their confidence to tackle new challenges they first thought were unachievable. She believes celebrating the little steps of progress is the key to maintaining any exercise routine, whether you are a beginner or expert, to help you reach for those giant goals.

In her spare time, she enjoys walking in the countryside with her dog, training in the gym or sparring in the ring and going to the theatre. At any chance she can get, she loves to dance, no matter where she is, particularly salsa.

Wed 20 October12:00pmLive - Dynamic Bodyweight Pilates (Beginners)
While this is a beginner’s class it won’t be easy. Using your own bodyweight and a few readily available props, this mat and floor-based class is harder, more dynamic, and more functional than a traditional mat Pilates class, and does require a reasonable amount of core and muscular strength. Designed to challenge body and brain alike it will have you sweating and grinning at the same time.

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!

Beverley Crighton
Beverley is a latecomer to teaching Pilates having spent most of her career working in the design, branding and corporate communications industry as a client director and consultant.

Although she had been very active and involved in many sports from childhood, the demands of Beverley’s corporate career became more demanding, leaving less and less time for fitness activities and the inevitable poor posture and injuries set in.

She discovered Pilates as a way to counter these issues and practised for many years. The results, and the balance of physical challenge and mental focus that her sessions provided, kept her hooked and helped her regain the strength and stability to try other activities again.

Beverley believes passionately that Pilates is the foundation for good posture and improved form in everything from everyday functional movement to excelling in sports and physical activities, and can play a massive role in rehabilitation and recovery.

She completed her Mat Pilates teaching qualifications in 2016 and switched careers straight away.

Believing it is never too late to try something new in life and Beverley gets great enjoyment and reward from teaching Pilates to clients of all ages and stages. For many of her clients, Pilates can feel like multi-tasking at the beginning, with so many things to think about. But over time the application and effort starts to bring amazing results – reinforcing Beverley’s conviction that that anything of value takes time and patience to build well.

In her spare time Beverley is very active, attending spinning and cardio-based classes. She’s also very interested in the arts and when she’s not teaching Pilates, you’re likely to find her at a gallery, immersing herself in all things creative.

Thu 21 October6:30pmLive - Dynamic Bodyweight Pilates (Advanced)Melissa James
Melissa has been dancing for about as long as she could walk, starting with Tap lessons at the age of four.

Her dedication from such a young age eventually paid off as he was taken on as a professional dancer for New Zealand’s top entertainment company, Diamond. She went on to spend seven years performing with Diamond, where her credits included New Zealand’s X-Factor and The Real Housewives of Auckland, alongside numerous sporting events and music videos.

During this time, she also studied at the University of Auckland to complete her Bachelor’s Degree in Dance Studies, where she focused on dance education and developed a passion to teach others.

Having spent many years swept up in the world of dance both professionally and educationally, it’s no surprise that she discovered Barre in 2014 and quickly began teaching Barre in her home country, New Zealand. Now that she’s settled into London it’s all about TenBarre.

Having previously used Pilates to support her own post injury rehab, she’s also a big advocate of it’s benefits. She’s adamant that Pilates should be a part of everybody’s fitness regime – alongside Barre, of course – and that’s why Ten is the perfect place for her to continue pass on her breadth of Barre expertise.

Whatever the workout, she believes that our bodies were made to move, and she loves helping anyone of any age, shape, ability and background find enjoyment in movement.

When she’s not teaching Barre classes at Ten, Melissa enjoys leading a busy life, which often includes soaking up West End shows, live music and dancing, of course!

Tue 26 October1:00pmLive - Dynamic Bodyweight Pilates (Advanced)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.
