Hannah Ray Studio

I trained in movement from the age of two, becoming proficient in classical then contemporary ballet, and later Pilates. I have a deep natural love of movement, and its power to service the body in maintaining health and energy.

I discovered Barre while living in Hong Kong, and fell in love with its unique marriage of dance and Pilates in a new method. I became a certified BarreAmped teacher, and I am currently a student teacher in Mat Pilates with Body Control Pilates.

My classes promote a connect to the mind and body through dynamic flowing movements leaving you feeling energised. I'm passionate about a habitual approach to fitness to promote longevity and vitality in life, and my personal workouts include dance, yoga, cycling, HIIT, Barre and spin. 



About Barre: Barre is an intense full body workout with influences taken from dance and Pilates. The focus is on small, isolated movements designed to sculpt, lengthen, strengthen and tone. I teach a mixed levels class, great for those starting Barre for the first time with an emphasis on finding good form, control and connecting mind to body.

Pilates classes: Coming soon!

I am currently a student teacher in Mat Pilates with Body Control Pilates and teaching under supervision at classes across London. 

My practise helps me attack all exercise with improved technique and renewed energy, and I love being able to help others learn increased awareness of their own bodies through the Pilates method.

I'll keep you up to date here on new classes in Peckham.
