I have over 30 years of experience of training, educating, lecturing, instructing.
I am interested in anti-ageing and aesthetics – simply how to improve the body shape with the Method Putkisto technique.
I am always excited about the potential physical performance of any age. My favourite movement development (MP Peak Performance) is all about Movement Analysis and my latest programme, Body Up for dynamic posture, was published in Finland in 2017.
So far no one – even the most dedicated clients - have ‘hit the wall’ – there is always another inspiring, exciting step ahead.
The fundamental approach I offer to all my clients is a sustainable progression towards ever continuing development - with 'less is more' comes simplicity.
The ‘less is more’ approach requires knowledge of the foundation of the rules we cannot skip – what can be achieved and how. I use my hands throughout the session to guide you and, sometimes, to really stretch you out.
My Studio is dedicated to change, commitment and values. It is created for recuperation, redefinition, realignment – and everything related to rebalancing your body.
Why not reach your optimum state and performance – or even go beyond your desired potential?
My main aim is to progress you beyond exercises; to teach you to get know your body - until you can perform any task in life easily/elegantly. In my teaching I use my unique Method Putkisto 3D teaching system which encourages you to learn not only in class - but throughout life.
All of my Method Putkisto classes are focused on dynamic/deep stretching and core strength – but in a very specific way. My skill is to identify your individual needs and choose the accurate type of exercises for you to reach your optimum results.
If you are interested in making in-depth positive changes to your body and wellbeing – welcome to my ‘live it’ not ‘do it’ exercise Studio
The Studio environment is relaxing. Although relaxation is often considered a luxury, it is still the key factor for good results. This is reflected all around my Studio environment - and makes the atmosphere unique. I offer you some quality time and I truly hope you enjoy it!

9.15am - 10.30am Method Putkisto Peak Performance (meet at Pembroke Lodge, Richmond Park)
In this class we look at a system to rebuild the way you move. We start with the theme of the week. We progressively improve the initiations of the movement which activates the deep muscles of the spine. It increases blood flow to the spine and balances the neurological system. You will learn to control and correct alignment whilst moving until the muscular memory permanently improves. It renews the activation order of the muscles and thus the way you move will improve.
12.00pm - 1.00pm Method Putkisto Anti-Ageing 3D Face Clinic
In the class we will align the head to its optimum alignment, lift the facial muscles and relax the tension. The progression will integrate our muscle use into the whole body. This class truly is very relaxing, invigorating and will balance the entire body. We will learn the placement of the voice to have a healthy voice to support you in daily life. We learn to use our expression muscles for communication. Less is more. Results are rewarding and fast. Highly recommended to eleviate stress caused by the digital age.
7.45pm - 9.00pm Method Putkisto & Method Putkisto Pilates
In this class we combine MP Pilates core work and Method Putkisto deep stretching and 3D system to learn the correct and precise technique suitable for your individual structure. We will practise the technique until the result really works. The control of your body will reach a new level. It is the quality of the movement that makes the session unique and is thus effective to your individual body.
10.30am - 11.45am Method Putkisto Top to Toe
We start the class with a warm up followed with carefully chosen spinal exercises, followed by strengthening and deep stretching. We stretch these tight, short muscles - in conjunction with deep core stabilisation - to free the body to return to its neutral position.
We also combine a touch of MP 3D Face exercises - which will leave both the body and face refreshed.
7.45pm - 9.00pm Method Putkisto Body UP
An inspiring, dynamic class for posture, freedom of movement and expression.
We start with a musical warm up, focused on balance, agility and all the dimensions of movement.
This is followed up with deep strengthening exercises combined with neurological connection. We stretch with integration and finish off with relaxation. You gain confidence and, most of all, after the class you will feel clear, relaxed and lifted.
9am - 10.15am Method Putkisto Outdoors with Francis Mitchell (meet at Pembroke Lodge, Richmond Park)
The nearest thing to a complete body workout. Method Putkisto Outdoors utilises more muscles than running and swimming, and more muscular activity means more calories burned. With up to 90% of skeletal muscles involved, only cross-country skiing comes as close to Method Putkisto Outdoors - thus being the most complete total body workout available! Method Putkisto Otdoors changes your regular fitness programme into a whole body workout and allows you to train comfortably and effectively in ways you may not have considered before. Imagine changing your car from 2-wheel drive to 4-wheel drive, and you get an idea of how this allows you to exercise in the beautiful outdoors – anywhere from city streets and parks, to forest, hills and beaches.
