“I’ve been to Pilates with Julia before at London Sport HQ, so when I heard about the morning rooftop classes, it was an offer I couldn’t refuse!  Julia’s a fantastic teacher and very inspirational.  Her enthusiasm set again the backdrop of a sunrise against London skyline is one of the best ways to start a Friday morning. london-sport-staff-at-coq-dargentI was utterly hooked. I’m really upset it’s winter now, so we aren’t able to do it anymore – I’ll definitely be back with the sun next year!”  Lizzie Stanton, Funding Manger – London Sport

We booked out an entire session. It was such a success that we rebooked a few weeks later. Everyone loved the class and raved about Julia’s teaching style. A thoroughly enjoyable and recommended class.”
Louise Goddard, EA – Goodman Masson

But, once I’d got myself to the Coq d’Argent rooftop on a warm summer’s morning, I wished I could do Pilates with Julia up there every day! A true escape from London’s morning chaos, I almost skipped to work after every class. Can’t wait for next year.”
Ana Saffer, Account Manager – Grey LondonStaff from Janikin Rooke at Coq D'Argent rooftop Pilates

“Early morning Pilates on the roof at Coq D’Argent was definitely worth getting up for! The setting was fabulous and Julia was excellent at making the class work really well for all levels of abilities.  We rewarded ourselves with a work breakfast after the session and got to work buzzing and energized”.
