What is Pilates?

Pilates is an exercise method designed to decompress the spine, improve breath and circulation, and strengthen the entire body as a whole with a specific focus on the "core" abdominal muscles. Pilates can be done on mats or on equipment specifically designed by Joseph Pilates mainly the Reformer, the Wall Unit or Cadillac, and the Chair. Other smaller pieces of equipment and accessories such as Magic Circles, Fit Balls, Therabands and more can also be used. Emily teaches group classes on the mat with and without accessories and offers private and duet lessons on the mat and the equipment.

What is a session with Emily like?

Group classes are small with a maximum of 9 participants. Emily is warm and friendly and makes each person feel welcomed by her and in the group. Be it a group or a private session every session begins by checking in with each person's current physical and mental condition. Emily teaches from the classical Pilates repertoire and introduces new concepts and exercises progressively. Imagery, anatomical knowledge and hand usage for guidance are used as pedagogical tools for teaching each lesson. She makes you work hard and she usually gives homework : an exercise or an observation to do until the next class!

Emily is a member of The French Federation of Professional Pilates Practitioners (FPMP) and holds a CQP-ALS certification for teaching Pilates in France.


I have been practicing Pilates for 13 years with Emily. She is very attentive to our aches and adapts the exercises accordingly while remaining demanding. The atmosphere is very pleasant, which offers a relaxing break in a bright and calm space. Come and discover his courses that I highly recommend.



Emily is an excellent pilates teacher, gentle teacher and funny! She has several accessories in her room (ball, rubber bands, etc.) and machines (chairs, etc.). You can therefore access a multitude of different courses. I can't see myself practicing pilates anywhere other than here!



I highly recommend Emily’s classes at Pilates de la tete aux pieds. Her training and years of experience are evident as she leads you through class with precise instructions and targeted corrections, no matter what your level. She will challenge you, but also brings a playful attitude to each session. It is an amazing workout in a beautiful space.
