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.

No prior experience is necessary for this class; a basic level of fitness is helpful but not essential. Clients are introduced to the equipment, techniques and some basic exercises. Recommended as your first class with Ten or for those of you who would like to practice at a gentler pace - though it's still more than enough of a workout to get those all important endorphins going. 55 mins.

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.

Jemma-Rae James
Jemma holds a degree in Physiotherapy from the University of Pretoria in South Africa. She was first introduced to Pilates during her undergraduate studies.

As a practicing Physiotherapist and Trainer at Ten she recognises the significance of functional strength and core stability in treating and preventing injuries. She chose to complete Ten’s Dynamic Reformer Pilates Academy in order to further her expertise in helping others to move and control their bodies better.

Jemma is very athletic and has participated in most sports from childhood. She currently competes in endurance sports such as road cycling, mountain biking and triathlons. Her active involvement in dynamic sporting environment perfectly equips her to understand the physical demands related to exercise, and has given her more extensive personal experience than she’d really like of the impact that pain and injury has on quality of life.

Jemma loves to get people moving and firmly believes that Reformer Pilates is a brilliant form of exercise for all fitness levels.

Her classes are aimed at empowering both the body and the mind, and challenging you to become a stronger and more rejuvenated version of yourself. Her feel-good music and infectious energy will leave you walking out with a big smile on your face.

When she’s not teaching classes or treating clients, Jemma spends her free time getting in touch with her artsy side by sketching and painting and loves reading autobiographies on sporting celebrities and adventurers.

Please note, this is an intense and demanding class and you should not attend if you are injured.
Sumrit Mattu
Sumrit has always been passionate about all sports, whether playing it, watching it or reading about it.

Following the sudden passing of his father in 2011, his sister signed up to the Great North Run to raise money money for the British Heart Foundation – sibling rivalry led him to the start line alongside his sister and that’s where his passion for running was ignited.

After completing a couple of marathons and immersing himself in London’s running community Sum realised that he needed to make sport his purpose as well as his passion.

Sum likes to view training as a form of playing and is a big advocate of kettlebell and TRX training for improving strength & mobility across all planes of motion.

Sum is grateful for the way running and training has improved his physical & mental health and loves nothing more than to share stories, build relationships and inspire others to take on challenges that they might not have yet considered.

In his spare time you’ll likely find Sum with a kettlebell, (or KettleBae as one of his friends has re-named it) and he’s never too far away from music!

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.

Mon 20 January5:30pmVinyasa Flow Yoga
In line with our ‘anti-desk’ approach, Ten’s Vinyasa Flow Yoga combines a flowing sequence of exercises with a strong focus on posture, form, and correct muscle activation, with breath used as an anchor for the different phases of each asana. Address the harmful impact of our deskbound modern lifestyles, restore balance, lengthen over-tight muscles, and help educate the body into a more natural set of movement patterns. Suitable for all levels.
Abi Barber
Abi discovered yoga over a decade ago when looking for an intense, all encompassing physical workout to offset some of the tension she found was building up through regular TaeKwonDo training. Through consistently coming to the yoga mat and linking her physical movement with the breath, Abi discovered that her mental health and well-being were improving alongside her fitness. She truly believes that yoga can help us find balance and calm in our lives, things that often seem very far away from a hectic London schedule.

Abi is a keen runner and cyclist and works with sportspeople from different disciplines, helping them to experience the benefits of yoga as she discovered them all those years ago (and keeps discovering all the time). Her classes start with the physical body and work on increasing strength, balance and core stability as well as keeping joints in safe alignment and working to optimise range of motion. She is also passionate about sharing the positive mental effects of the practice – through a focus on deep, steady breathing even when the body is being challenged, we can help stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, calming the body and cultivating an evenness of mind and a tenacity that we can tap into in stressful situations – at work, on our commute, or during a race for example.

All of these things, physical and mental, vary from person to person and it is important to Abi to work with individuals and small groups to ensure that each person gets what they need. A ‘one size fits all’ approach is not her style!

Mon 20 January6:30pmTenBarre
If you’re looking to add some extra variety to your workout, TenBarre is a fresh and uniquely ‘Ten’ take on the Barre workout. It combines a dynamic and innovative dance-based workout with expert hands-on instruction – all TenBarre Trainers are also current professional dancers. TenBarre is suitable for all levels from diehard Barre addict to curious first-timer.
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!

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.

Jemma-Rae James
Jemma holds a degree in Physiotherapy from the University of Pretoria in South Africa. She was first introduced to Pilates during her undergraduate studies.

As a practicing Physiotherapist and Trainer at Ten she recognises the significance of functional strength and core stability in treating and preventing injuries. She chose to complete Ten’s Dynamic Reformer Pilates Academy in order to further her expertise in helping others to move and control their bodies better.

Jemma is very athletic and has participated in most sports from childhood. She currently competes in endurance sports such as road cycling, mountain biking and triathlons. Her active involvement in dynamic sporting environment perfectly equips her to understand the physical demands related to exercise, and has given her more extensive personal experience than she’d really like of the impact that pain and injury has on quality of life.

Jemma loves to get people moving and firmly believes that Reformer Pilates is a brilliant form of exercise for all fitness levels.

Her classes are aimed at empowering both the body and the mind, and challenging you to become a stronger and more rejuvenated version of yourself. Her feel-good music and infectious energy will leave you walking out with a big smile on your face.

When she’s not teaching classes or treating clients, Jemma spends her free time getting in touch with her artsy side by sketching and painting and loves reading autobiographies on sporting celebrities and adventurers.

An upbeat and energising session, ideal for Intermediate clients keen to try the extra challenge that our Advanced Classes offer, but unsure about what to expect. It’s also a great reintroduction for Advanced clients coming back after some time off. It’s a little slower-paced than a regular Advanced Class (though you’ll still challenge yourself and raise a sweat). We’ll focus on optimal form and technique, along with an introduction to some new advanced level exercises, and next-level progressions of familiar routines.

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!

Tilly Berry
Born and raised in the country, with a strong sense of self and social conscience, Tilly went on to study human and social geography at the University of Edinburgh. When she moved to London after graduating, she struggled to find her feet. With so much going on around her, she felt confusingly isolated yet too caught up in the hustle and bustle of city life to even notice the deterioration of her mental health.

Tilly began her yoga journey in 2015. She originally approached yoga from a very physical perspective; “if I am physically fit I will be happy”. She was convinced for a while until she stumbled upon a dynamic vinyasa practice, which was more than just a good sweat, it was fun, playful, challenging and creative. She soon rediscovered her sense of sense and confidence, and perspective shifted to: “if I look after my mental health, the rest will fall into place”.

As a former gymnast, Tilly likes yoga with a playful and creative edge. Her classes make you feel comfortable on the mat whether you’re a beginning or a regular yogi. She encourages her students to challenge, push and most importantly trust themselves and their body’s abilities. Tilly’s positive and approachable teaching methods help you to feel motivated, invigorated and proud of what you have achieved. In her classes you can expect to try some funky new poses and transitions, getting the body moving, sweating, breathing and flowing. Amongst the fun, there will be a chance to reconnect to your mind and body and recharge.

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.

Born in South Africa, raised in New Zealand and recently arrived in London, Brads’ career choice was decided at the age of 12.

Playing multiple competitive sports and pushing the limits of how many games of sport one parent should be asked to sit through in a week, Brad has always known he wanted to be in the health and fitness industry.

After finishing school he continued to further his education in the fitness industry, completing 3 certificates in fitness, before completing BSc in Sport & Exercise in 2010.

Brad’s career in health and fitness took off when he experienced how exercise could impact the lives of everyday people struggling with a health condition – an insight that changed his aim in life, from giving someone a thick chest and arms to helping people create a more holistic and long lasting approach to health in their own lives.

Brad has extensive experience as an Exercise Specialist and Personal Trainer, and has run boot camps in New Zealand. More recently – and for him much more importantly – he also spent 5 years as an Exercise Physiologist in a leading health and wellness centre. Here he worked not only with able bodied clients, but also became increasingly passionate about working with clients with a vast range of disabilities and injuries – and who couldn’t get help anywhere else.

Brad’s beliefs and approach to fitness and health is all about sustainable and lasting benefits – that means no fad diets and no 6-pack in 7 days.

In the weekends you’ll find Brad training, studying, watching rugby, snowboarding or doing backflips anywhere he can.

Tue 21 January6:30pmTenBarre
If you’re looking to add some extra variety to your workout, TenBarre is a fresh and uniquely ‘Ten’ take on the Barre workout. It combines a dynamic and innovative dance-based workout with expert hands-on instruction – all TenBarre Trainers are also current professional dancers. TenBarre is suitable for all levels from diehard Barre addict to curious first-timer.
Lydia Cowcher
Instead of finding barre through a fitness route, Lydia came from a strong contemporary dance background while studying Dance and Culture at the University of Surrey in 2012.

Lydia’s credits include performing choreographies at Siobhan Davies Platform, Moving Oxford Platform, Decoda Dance Festival and for Greenwich Dance Agency. She also spent a year as Co-Artistic Director for the university dance company, Actual Size, choreographing and teaching contemporary movement to other students.

Since leaving university, Lydia completed her Performance MA at Chichester University and trained and toured the UK with Mapdance Company while working closely with a number of pioneering choreographers.

When Lydia isn’t teaching Barre, she works as a freelance dance teacher in schools around London and Surrey helping children to stay active and to increase their creativity through movement.

Lydia’s classes are fun but challenging. Lydia focuses as much on lengthening as strengthening throughout her classes, to help her clients to sculpt and tone their bodies.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Sumrit Mattu
Sumrit has always been passionate about all sports, whether playing it, watching it or reading about it.

Following the sudden passing of his father in 2011, his sister signed up to the Great North Run to raise money money for the British Heart Foundation – sibling rivalry led him to the start line alongside his sister and that’s where his passion for running was ignited.

After completing a couple of marathons and immersing himself in London’s running community Sum realised that he needed to make sport his purpose as well as his passion.

Sum likes to view training as a form of playing and is a big advocate of kettlebell and TRX training for improving strength & mobility across all planes of motion.

Sum is grateful for the way running and training has improved his physical & mental health and loves nothing more than to share stories, build relationships and inspire others to take on challenges that they might not have yet considered.

In his spare time you’ll likely find Sum with a kettlebell, (or KettleBae as one of his friends has re-named it) and he’s never too far away from music!

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.

Caroll Kerner
Caroll is originally from the Champagne region in France. To say that she likes travel and physical challenges is something of an understatement.

She has always been a keen horserider and a runner. When she moved to London she discovered Thai boxing, and after a few years’ training, moved to Kho Samui where she trained for a further five months, taking part in three fights (and winning all three).

On returning to London, she was persuaded to enter her first London Marathon – the first of 14 marathons (5 of them in London) all completed in good times, along with a100km race, which she finished in just over 10 hours.

When she lived in Australia and Vanuatu she took up cycling, and as a result found herself competing in the Alpes d’Huez. With its 21 hairpins, this is one of the legendary ascents of the Tour de France, which she climbed in just over an hour on a steel bike.

Just to add an extra element of challenge (and yet more travel), Caroll trained in Krav Maga in Israel, qualifying as an Instructor. And picking up some injuries along the way, which in turn, introduced her to Pilates and her teaching qualification.

Over the past decade she has participated in a number of courses at the some most respected institutes in the field of holistic health and exercise. With her in-depth understanding (and personal experience) that functional movement patterns are essential to maintain a healthy, efficient and pain free body, Carroll ensures that Pilates is at the core of every exercise and program that she does.

As a Trainer, Caroll is strict yet patient; a perfectionist but also a good motivator. As the basis of all Pilates, she insists on correct and transferable technique in all exercises – so you can practice in everyday life what you learn in class. But above all, she aims to develop routines that suit, stimulate and encourage everyone in her classes.

Tilly Berry
Born and raised in the country, with a strong sense of self and social conscience, Tilly went on to study human and social geography at the University of Edinburgh. When she moved to London after graduating, she struggled to find her feet. With so much going on around her, she felt confusingly isolated yet too caught up in the hustle and bustle of city life to even notice the deterioration of her mental health.

Tilly began her yoga journey in 2015. She originally approached yoga from a very physical perspective; “if I am physically fit I will be happy”. She was convinced for a while until she stumbled upon a dynamic vinyasa practice, which was more than just a good sweat, it was fun, playful, challenging and creative. She soon rediscovered her sense of sense and confidence, and perspective shifted to: “if I look after my mental health, the rest will fall into place”.

As a former gymnast, Tilly likes yoga with a playful and creative edge. Her classes make you feel comfortable on the mat whether you’re a beginning or a regular yogi. She encourages her students to challenge, push and most importantly trust themselves and their body’s abilities. Tilly’s positive and approachable teaching methods help you to feel motivated, invigorated and proud of what you have achieved. In her classes you can expect to try some funky new poses and transitions, getting the body moving, sweating, breathing and flowing. Amongst the fun, there will be a chance to reconnect to your mind and body and recharge.

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.

Wed 22 January8:00amBeginners - Dynamic Reformer Pilates
No prior experience is necessary for this class; a basic level of fitness is helpful but not essential. Clients are introduced to the equipment, techniques and some basic exercises. Recommended as your first class with Ten or for those of you who would like to practice at a gentler pace - though it's still more than enough of a workout to get those all important endorphins going. 55 mins.
Caroll Kerner
Caroll is originally from the Champagne region in France. To say that she likes travel and physical challenges is something of an understatement.

She has always been a keen horserider and a runner. When she moved to London she discovered Thai boxing, and after a few years’ training, moved to Kho Samui where she trained for a further five months, taking part in three fights (and winning all three).

On returning to London, she was persuaded to enter her first London Marathon – the first of 14 marathons (5 of them in London) all completed in good times, along with a100km race, which she finished in just over 10 hours.

When she lived in Australia and Vanuatu she took up cycling, and as a result found herself competing in the Alpes d’Huez. With its 21 hairpins, this is one of the legendary ascents of the Tour de France, which she climbed in just over an hour on a steel bike.

Just to add an extra element of challenge (and yet more travel), Caroll trained in Krav Maga in Israel, qualifying as an Instructor. And picking up some injuries along the way, which in turn, introduced her to Pilates and her teaching qualification.

Over the past decade she has participated in a number of courses at the some most respected institutes in the field of holistic health and exercise. With her in-depth understanding (and personal experience) that functional movement patterns are essential to maintain a healthy, efficient and pain free body, Carroll ensures that Pilates is at the core of every exercise and program that she does.

As a Trainer, Caroll is strict yet patient; a perfectionist but also a good motivator. As the basis of all Pilates, she insists on correct and transferable technique in all exercises – so you can practice in everyday life what you learn in class. But above all, she aims to develop routines that suit, stimulate and encourage everyone in her classes.

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.

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!

Brad Emmott
Born in South Africa, raised in New Zealand and recently arrived in London, Brads’ career choice was decided at the age of 12.

Playing multiple competitive sports and pushing the limits of how many games of sport one parent should be asked to sit through in a week, Brad has always known he wanted to be in the health and fitness industry.

After finishing school he continued to further his education in the fitness industry, completing 3 certificates in fitness, before completing BSc in Sport & Exercise in 2010.

Brad’s career in health and fitness took off when he experienced how exercise could impact the lives of everyday people struggling with a health condition – an insight that changed his aim in life, from giving someone a thick chest and arms to helping people create a more holistic and long lasting approach to health in their own lives.

Brad has extensive experience as an Exercise Specialist and Personal Trainer, and has run boot camps in New Zealand. More recently – and for him much more importantly – he also spent 5 years as an Exercise Physiologist in a leading health and wellness centre. Here he worked not only with able bodied clients, but also became increasingly passionate about working with clients with a vast range of disabilities and injuries – and who couldn’t get help anywhere else.

Brad’s beliefs and approach to fitness and health is all about sustainable and lasting benefits – that means no fad diets and no 6-pack in 7 days.

In the weekends you’ll find Brad training, studying, watching rugby, snowboarding or doing backflips anywhere he can.

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.

No prior experience is necessary for this class; a basic level of fitness is helpful but not essential. Clients are introduced to the equipment, techniques and some basic exercises. Recommended as your first class with Ten or for those of you who would like to practice at a gentler pace - though it's still more than enough of a workout to get those all important endorphins going. 55 mins.
Brad Emmott
Born in South Africa, raised in New Zealand and recently arrived in London, Brads’ career choice was decided at the age of 12.

Playing multiple competitive sports and pushing the limits of how many games of sport one parent should be asked to sit through in a week, Brad has always known he wanted to be in the health and fitness industry.

After finishing school he continued to further his education in the fitness industry, completing 3 certificates in fitness, before completing BSc in Sport & Exercise in 2010.

Brad’s career in health and fitness took off when he experienced how exercise could impact the lives of everyday people struggling with a health condition – an insight that changed his aim in life, from giving someone a thick chest and arms to helping people create a more holistic and long lasting approach to health in their own lives.

Brad has extensive experience as an Exercise Specialist and Personal Trainer, and has run boot camps in New Zealand. More recently – and for him much more importantly – he also spent 5 years as an Exercise Physiologist in a leading health and wellness centre. Here he worked not only with able bodied clients, but also became increasingly passionate about working with clients with a vast range of disabilities and injuries – and who couldn’t get help anywhere else.

Brad’s beliefs and approach to fitness and health is all about sustainable and lasting benefits – that means no fad diets and no 6-pack in 7 days.

In the weekends you’ll find Brad training, studying, watching rugby, snowboarding or doing backflips anywhere he can.

TenRX is Ten's expert take on suspension training. This class goes a step further than our Dynamic Pilates classes in offering an intense bodyweight-base workout that challenges the whole body from tip to (literally) toe. You don't need prior TRX experience, but you will need a reasonable level of strength, stamina, mobility and general body awareness.
It’s a gym workout not a Pilates class, so please remember to bring your training shoes.

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!

Caroll Kerner
Caroll is originally from the Champagne region in France. To say that she likes travel and physical challenges is something of an understatement.

She has always been a keen horserider and a runner. When she moved to London she discovered Thai boxing, and after a few years’ training, moved to Kho Samui where she trained for a further five months, taking part in three fights (and winning all three).

On returning to London, she was persuaded to enter her first London Marathon – the first of 14 marathons (5 of them in London) all completed in good times, along with a100km race, which she finished in just over 10 hours.

When she lived in Australia and Vanuatu she took up cycling, and as a result found herself competing in the Alpes d’Huez. With its 21 hairpins, this is one of the legendary ascents of the Tour de France, which she climbed in just over an hour on a steel bike.

Just to add an extra element of challenge (and yet more travel), Caroll trained in Krav Maga in Israel, qualifying as an Instructor. And picking up some injuries along the way, which in turn, introduced her to Pilates and her teaching qualification.

Over the past decade she has participated in a number of courses at the some most respected institutes in the field of holistic health and exercise. With her in-depth understanding (and personal experience) that functional movement patterns are essential to maintain a healthy, efficient and pain free body, Carroll ensures that Pilates is at the core of every exercise and program that she does.

As a Trainer, Caroll is strict yet patient; a perfectionist but also a good motivator. As the basis of all Pilates, she insists on correct and transferable technique in all exercises – so you can practice in everyday life what you learn in class. But above all, she aims to develop routines that suit, stimulate and encourage everyone in her classes.

Fri 24 January7:00amVinyasa Flow Yoga
In line with our ‘anti-desk’ approach, Ten’s Vinyasa Flow Yoga combines a flowing sequence of exercises with a strong focus on posture, form, and correct muscle activation, with breath used as an anchor for the different phases of each asana. Address the harmful impact of our deskbound modern lifestyles, restore balance, lengthen over-tight muscles, and help educate the body into a more natural set of movement patterns. Suitable for all levels.
Abi Barber
Abi discovered yoga over a decade ago when looking for an intense, all encompassing physical workout to offset some of the tension she found was building up through regular TaeKwonDo training. Through consistently coming to the yoga mat and linking her physical movement with the breath, Abi discovered that her mental health and well-being were improving alongside her fitness. She truly believes that yoga can help us find balance and calm in our lives, things that often seem very far away from a hectic London schedule.

Abi is a keen runner and cyclist and works with sportspeople from different disciplines, helping them to experience the benefits of yoga as she discovered them all those years ago (and keeps discovering all the time). Her classes start with the physical body and work on increasing strength, balance and core stability as well as keeping joints in safe alignment and working to optimise range of motion. She is also passionate about sharing the positive mental effects of the practice – through a focus on deep, steady breathing even when the body is being challenged, we can help stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, calming the body and cultivating an evenness of mind and a tenacity that we can tap into in stressful situations – at work, on our commute, or during a race for example.

All of these things, physical and mental, vary from person to person and it is important to Abi to work with individuals and small groups to ensure that each person gets what they need. A ‘one size fits all’ approach is not her style!

Jemma-Rae James
Jemma holds a degree in Physiotherapy from the University of Pretoria in South Africa. She was first introduced to Pilates during her undergraduate studies.

As a practicing Physiotherapist and Trainer at Ten she recognises the significance of functional strength and core stability in treating and preventing injuries. She chose to complete Ten’s Dynamic Reformer Pilates Academy in order to further her expertise in helping others to move and control their bodies better.

Jemma is very athletic and has participated in most sports from childhood. She currently competes in endurance sports such as road cycling, mountain biking and triathlons. Her active involvement in dynamic sporting environment perfectly equips her to understand the physical demands related to exercise, and has given her more extensive personal experience than she’d really like of the impact that pain and injury has on quality of life.

Jemma loves to get people moving and firmly believes that Reformer Pilates is a brilliant form of exercise for all fitness levels.

Her classes are aimed at empowering both the body and the mind, and challenging you to become a stronger and more rejuvenated version of yourself. Her feel-good music and infectious energy will leave you walking out with a big smile on your face.

When she’s not teaching classes or treating clients, Jemma spends her free time getting in touch with her artsy side by sketching and painting and loves reading autobiographies on sporting celebrities and adventurers.
