[ Reader offer: Save £10 on Pilates or Gyrotonic ]

Studio 74 is a new Pilates and Gyrotonic centre,
located on the ground floor of an 18th century building
in lively Bermondsey Street. The studio offers a
sanctuary where clients are able to relax and recharge
in an atmosphere brimming with warmth and character. 

The setting allows clients to gain maximum benefit from
the close personal supervision of the teachers. 

The Pilates Method is an exercise technique based on
the philosophy and teachings of Joseph Herbertus
Pilates, the legendary trainer and founder of the
Pilates Studio, New York, in the early 1920s. 

Still relatively new to the UK, The Gyrotonic Expansion
System is gaining huge popularity worldwide as a  new
concept in exercise. The system was created in the USA
by Juliu Horvath who has combined years of experience
as a dancer and gymnast with  in depth knowledge of
yoga and Chinese medicine. 

Studio 74 is offering SE1 Direct readers an
introductory session for £25 (instead of £35) in either
the Pilates or Gyrotonic equipment methods. 

To take advantage of this offer, call 020 7407 7576 or
email info@studioseventyfour.co.uk - quoting 'SE1
Direct offer'.

The studio is open six days a week and classes are
available from 10am until 8.30pm weekdays and until 3pm
on Saturdays.

You can find Studio 74 at 74 Bermondsey Street, SE1 3UD
