Paola is very enthusiastic and dedicated teacher. Her tailored video lessons allow me to work each part of my body according my daily necessities. Since I started these Pilates classes my headaches have incredibly decreased and my posture has improved. Highly suggested.
I discovered Paola and Shapes Studio just over 2 months ago. My overall mindset to exercise and nutrition has changed as it is now sustainable since becoming a member. Paola’s holistic approach to improving your wellbeing is refreshing and the exercises which are very effective you can do at your own pace. My shape has changed and my muscles have become more toned. Overall, I feel better inside and out. Thank you Paola for your excellent coaching, motivation and advice. I would not have got this far without you
“I met Paola almost 2 years in a Pilates Studio in London, where she was teaching Pilates. Her classes were amazing and I could really see changes in my figure. During lockdown I joined Shapes so I can do Paola’s workouts from the comfort of my home. I started the health coaching with Paola in June, after a period of emotional eating and unhealthy food choices, in order to change my habits towards healthy living. My top goals were to practice mindful eating, improve my confidence and awareness and have a strong and lean body figure. Through her guidance, advice, continuous support and encouragement I have been able to find freedom, comfort and enjoyment in eating healthy, whole foods,without feeling guilty about having the occasional treat. Paola’s holistic approach to health and wellness has helped me become more energetic and flourish in all aspects of my life. She is also gave me great suggestion about things that I can add in my diet in order to have more variety in my meals and healthy recipes. Following the 80/20 nutrition is a way of living for me and I feel confident I will maintain the changes that I’ve achieved so far. Working with Paola has been life changing for me! “
Shapes has drastically improved my fitness as well as my enjoyment when exercising. Paola is an engaging, enthusiastic and clear Pilates teacher. I love her various routines which I can pick to match my energy levels. I would definitely recommend shapes to people of all Pilates abilities. There is something in it for everyone”

There’s loads of stuff on there for the time poor that truly works and I believe in Paola’s method so much – she’s not only transformed my body but she’s got me back to walking (twice) in the face of serious back surgery. So whatever the reason for looking at what she does, I can’t recommend her highly enough”

Shapes and Pilates with Paola helps me to connect with my body to build strength and alignment, concentrating on different muscles and becoming more aware of how my body moves and works. You can take the benefits away with you throughout the day with regards to the way you walk, stand and hold yourself in general

Paola, you are a star! You’ve helped me build muscle, core and upper body strength to better do my work and live with less aches and pain just from strengthening. Thank you
I only started doing Pilates a few months ago at my gym and, when it closed, I discovered Shapes and have been doing those workouts daily. I can’t believe the changes I’ve seen in my body! I’m a lot more toned and strong and in control, but the best part is that it doesn’t bulk you like more conventional forms of exercise. Paola is amazing and is always there to guide you and answer your questions. I couldn’t be happier and I’m hooked for life!
My sleep is better. I think not doing crazy long workouts has balanced out my appetite too so it has been such a positive experience already. Looking forward to my workout in the morning
I had a great experience using SHAPES platform! I love the fact that the workouts are very specific, short and effective! I really enjoy doing them and actually looking forward to the next one. I feel like they are becoming part of my daily routine and I am very happy with results! I have tried many different workout styles but feel like this one is a perfect mix of exercises that my body needs
What I really love about Paola’s approach is that it enables to personalise and adapt, allowing to pick out and create a routine that works best for each and every individual at a different stage of life. Free to choose however the intensity one may desire, whenever and wherever one is able, her workout is never imposing, yet complete. It helped me realise the importance of trusting my own body’s ability to heal. It has been just over a month since I joined the Shapes Studio, but the quality of my sleep has improved significantly – and I just simply feel so elevated.
Over our lockdown I decided to try pilates https://www.shapesstudio.co/ with lovely Paola. I rather enjoyed all her video exercises and stretches. The exercises are carefully thought out and well organised. You can choose which part of your body you want to work on and make your own routine. She also shows various stretching techniques that I loved. Paola’s instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Her videos are of different lengths and easy to fit around one’s busy life. Thank you Paola – you managed to challenge me despite 8 years of my Pilates training
