“Exceptional experience”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Having recently commenced Pilates in Australia, I was keen to spend my holiday in Bali focussing on gaining greater experience. Initially, I considered doing a two week health retreat among the many being advertised by exclusive resorts, but the group concept seemed less appealing than private instruction. Fortunately, the reviews on google and trip advisor which I researched prior to the trip, lived up to and indeed exceeded my expectations.
After the first session with Fas, the owner of the Art of Pilates, I was amazed at the detailed explanations and assessment of my technique which was unlike any instruction I had ever received at home. Fas was astute in quickly picking up subtle refinements which have made a major impact on my flexibility, strength and posture in only two weeks of instruction. Even simple stretches which I have done for years are now undertaken with new knowledge....like for example, a catstretch. Who would ever had thought about spine placement three different ways during this stretch. Fas and his beautiful wife Natalie own the Art of Body. I had the good fortunate to also take private instruction with Natalie in her fitness studio. They are both walking advertisements for good health, balance and fitness. Natalie looks exceptional and as a mother of a gorgeous four year old, is certainly an inspiration to help other mothers of all ages, get back into shape. There are plenty of laughs, good humour and a wonderful warmth and energy which flows through all staff at the studio. Wayan, Sri, Natalie and Fas, thank you for your commitment to excellence. You truly made my trip to Bali a wonderful experience and I look forward to seeing you again next time.

“Art of Excellence”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

A group of us recently visited Bali to celebrate a birthday and although celebrating was the priority, being the dedicated girls we are, we didn't want to miss out on Pilates. We signed up for 3 semi private classes. Our instructor, Fas, was nothing short of excellent, directing us with precise instructions/demonstrations and the right amount of humour helping us forget the pain he was inflicting! We absolutely loved everything about this Studio, Fas (as mentioned) rocked, the equipment was well maintained and clean, great location and a harmonious space to workout. We came away each day feeling rejuvenated and wiped out! We'll be back!

“Amazing place - enlightening experience”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

My husband and I practice yoga and Pilates on a regular basis in London, and during our 10-day in Bali, we wanted to do some exercise and try something new. Aerial yoga came up, and we loved the idea...
Just from reading the questionnaires we filled out upon our arrival at the studio, Natalie devised a perfect session for the two of us and gave us the most amazing introduction to aerial yoga/Pilates we could have wished for! Truly amazing.
Natalie is very professional and an exceptional trainer (both my husband and I have a lot of experience in working with personal trainers). She is a caring, kind and interesting person who is also genuinely interested not only in our fitness objectives, but also in our experience and feed-back.
She made the whole session a challenging fitness class, but also a truly enlightening experience and helped us discover a new form of exercise that brings together the body and the mind.
She inspired us to take up aerial yoga/Pilates in London as we really loved our private induction to this beautiful form of exercise. Thank you again, Natalie! Our only regret is that we did not have enough time to go back before leaving Bali!...

“Excellent instruction”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

This experience of learning Pilates was amazing . The owner instructor is so good. Made me want to do Pilates when I came back to Australia but sadly the training etc here is pathetic compared to studio pirates . Wish I lived in Bali so I could do it every day

“Awesome Pilates and fantastic fitness”
Reviewed 21 February 2014 via mobile

Had a great Pilates treatment here. Once I had recovered from my back pain, I was for enough to try the pole dancing classes. The teachers are top-notch and super friendly. The facilities are amongst the best in Bali. Everything is clean and new. Can't recommend the Art of Body enough - love it
