Meet the New Faculty!

Three new and wonderful instructors will be bringing their expertise and unique point of view to Roslagsgatan 58. I can’t wait for you to meet them and to be inspired by their enthusiasm and knowledge!

Boaz Cohen was raised in Israel and brings decades of Pilates study, movement analysis, and professional dance experience to his teaching methodology. His kind and open spirit and his attention to detail make you feel that you’re in good hands and encourage you to explore and deepen your relationship with your own body and the Pilates Method. We are lucky to have him with us.

Anna Kirs is originally from Estonia and is working toward becoming a doula. She has advanced study and specialty training in prenatal and postpartum Pilates as well as a long dance and movement training background. Her passion and committment to the health and safety of her clients and her respect for authentic and personalized PIlates instruction make her an invaluable asset to the studio and to both expecting and new mothers.

Marlen Bakke has studied and practiced yoga in many different parts of the world. She was certified by the Marianne Wells yoga school in Costa Rica and has since then instructed both Hatha and Vinyasa classes. Marlen draws from different yoga traditions and finds inspiration from, among other things, Yin, Bikram, Vinyasa and Ashtanga. She emphasizes a deeper, inner experience of yourself and your body but also has a playful exploration of everything from simple to more challenging yoga exercises in an informal mood.

r.As always, we look forward to seeing you and invite you to try out the new classes being offered this month. We also encourage new clients to take advantage of our ongoing Trial Offers: 2 group classes for 400 kronor and 2 Semi Private Wall Unit classes for 500 kronor.

Letter Jan 2019

Happy New Year!!! We wish you a Healthy and Hope filled 2019! Should your New Year’s resolution include Pilates and Yoga, we’re here to support and encourage you in any way that we can. 

New at the Parlor

In addition to a number of new classes, this month we are also kicking off the New Year with our first “Monthly Studio Give Back”! Available online, you will find a pricing option called Saturday Special which allows you to take both Yoga Flow and Restorative Yoga for just 350 kronor.

Each month we will offer a different “Give Back” to help motivate you. It’s easy to become overwhelmed or discouraged as a result of setting unrealistic or over ambitious goals; the trick is to set easy-to-achieve short term goals. By taking smaller steps, and celebrating your accomplishments, you will generate enthusiasm and encouragement as you move towards your larger long term goals!

Actually, for availability and booking of Private and Duet appointments, please email or phone.

Timothy Kasper has been studying movement since the late 1970’s when he began his professional career as a performer and dancer. Pilates, Gyrotonic Expansion and Yoga became important tools for him in NYC in the early 1990’s after a skiing and dance related knee injury required surgery. In time, encouraged by mentors, he began teaching a hybrid conditioning form influenced by all the various movement modalities he’d encountered over the years. That planted the teaching bug and when he began contemplating life after dance, in 2005, he immersed himself in a Pilates Teacher Training certification program followed by the first of 2 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training course and eventually became a licensed Teacher of the Gyrotonic Expansion System. Pilates has taken center stage since moving to Stockholm in 2010 when he began working at Pilates Scandinavia for almost 3 years, Ryggspecialisten for 3 years, Lidingö Pilates and Yoga for over 7 years, as well as Yogarummet, Kroppsverkstan, Nirvana Yoga, and It’s Yoga Stockholm.

Letter Nov 18

Dear Valued Customers and Friends,

Now that I have received your contact information from Janessa, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to those of you whom I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting. My name is Tim Kasper and as of December 1st I will be the owner of the studio at Roslagsgatan 58. Its new name will be Tim’s Pilates Parlor and you are warmly welcome to join us in our effort to keep Janessa’s labor of love alive.

Janessa and I have known each other for nearly two decades. We trained with the same teachers and received the same PMA certification from Teri Steele of Steele Pilates in New York where I began teaching Pilates and Yoga to a number of private clients of all ages and walks of life; from young professional dancers to stressed out stock brokers, from radio DJ’s to promising young swimmers. I soon sought to challenge myself by teaching larger groups and quickly found myself teaching in Health Clubs and dance studios and eventually spent three summers teaching young gifted dancers at Jacob’s Pillow where Joseph Pilates spent 12 of his summers educating dancers and members of the community with his timeless method.

In 2010 I moved to Stockholm and received a 2nd yoga certification from It’s Yoga Stockholm and then oddly enough put my yoga teaching on the back burner for a couple of years and immersed myself in Classical Pilates after being offered a teaching position at Pilates Scandinavia. Three years later I joined forces with a very supportive private client and Osteopath Marie Tuvlind (Hesselgren) and collaborated for 3 years at Ryggspecialisten nearly full time while teaching at Forma Naprapat Clinic and Lidingö Pilates and Yoga where I continue to teach several hours a week.

In December you will find a limited schedule of Pilates and Yoga classes on Mindbody Online and the website, Very soon I will be posting the Winter/Spring schedule which will include several more options including: Barre classes, Foundation Level, Beginner/Intermediate, and Intermediate/Advanced Pilates classes, Core Yoga and more …

Trial Offer

If you would like to sample our classes and teachers before making a commitment to a discounted multiple class card, we currently have a Trial Offer available with a savings of 100 SEK on 2 mat classes or 2 semi private wall unit classes! For those of you who are ready to dive in, you can save 250 kronor off the already discounted 10 class card rate until December 31st; our way of saying thank you for your continued support and welcome!

I look forward to seeing you and welcome any suggestions for classes, times or events that may interest you or those you know and love.
