Zed Pilates Studio offers a welcoming place for everyone from beginners to experienced practitioners. We teach the Classical Pilates method, the original traditional series of exercises as developed by Joseph Pilates, and passed on to his chosen successor and master trainer, Romana Kryzanowska.
We encourage everyone to workout with intention.
"I must be right. Never an aspirin.
Never injured a day in my life.The whole country, the whole world, should be doing my exercises. They'd be happier."

Zsofia Nagy Nemes
Zsofia was trained in London, completing the Romana’s Pilates Instructor Training Program. This certification program is one of the most respected classical teacher training certifications in the world. It is linked to True Pilates in New York and to the late Romana Kryzanowska, the chosen successor of Joseph Pilates.
Zsofia was personally tested and certified by Sari Meija the daughter of Romana, in the True Pilates. During her education in London, Zsofia was trained by Rebecca Convey, Marjorie Oron (Master Teacher X) and Jane Poerwoatmodjo from The Hague (Holland). Zsofia came to Pilates from a classical ballet background.
Her Pilates journey started at the Hungarian National Ballet in Budapest, where she was a professional ballet dancer for over 10 years. During this time she began to practice the Pilates method and soon realised its value in both injury prevention and strength training. In 2009, she began the STOTT Pilates®
certification program in order to deepen her knowledge and understanding of the method. This program is based on the modern principals of exercise science and rehabilitation. She gained her certification for mat and equipment.
In 2014, Zsofia discovered the Classical Pilates method and how Romana's Pilates teaches the exercises as well as the philosophies of Joseph Pilates' unique approach to health and fitness. This prompted her to dedicate two years of training to learn the method, which has proven itself for more than 80 years as effective and safe.
Having completed both, the Classical and Stott Pilates certification programs Zsofia is able to comfortably work with all ages, most types of injuries and fitness levels. She has a very keen eye and an unerring attention to detail, which makes her a truly inspiring teacher of the method.
She is a fundamental believer that “Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness” (Joseph Pilates).
Zsolt was trained in The Hague with Marjorie Oron, Romana's Pilates Level X Teacher trainer and personally certified in New York by the late Romana Kryzanowska, the chosen successor of Joseph Pilates to teach the Method. Over the past 15 years Zsolt has worked in The Netherlands, Paris and London.
Zsolt’s passion for the True Pilates Method originates following a successful recovery from a knee injury using the method. This prompted him to dedicate 18 month of intensive training, observing and teaching at The Pilates Studio in The Hague and at True Pilates New York.
Having previously had a career as a professional ballet dancer, Zsolt understands better than most the importance of physical well being. In the modern world where lifestyles and sedentary occupations can place increased stresses on the body prevention and injury management are increasingly important.
