Anna Kosciuk

Teaches: BOUNCE, BELLY BLAST

This little motyiku (butterfly in Polish) is, simply put, a ball of beautiful energy. She's a Sports Scientist (MSc) who specialises in movement biomechanics and has focused much of her (daytime) work on investigating runners' susceptibility to sport injuries (and how to get them back on their feet) and developing wearable tech to help runners improve their athletic performance. She also has a BSc in Sport Biomedicine and Nutrition (one must combine healthy eating alongside an active lifestyle!) and is currently working on her Personal Trainer Level 3 qualification. 

Anna's boundless energy and bubbly character make for a hilarious and delightful ride on the #paintrain, and has even led her to the big stage; having trained as an opera singer. (Talented bish.)​

Georgia Brown

Teaches: BARRE, BEND, BOUNCE

Just watch Georgia move and you'll get it.​

This Royal Dance Academy grad marries tremendous strength with unending grace, and then tops it all of with a self-deprecating humour that makes her as endearing as she is #badass.

Look for Georgia in her regular BGBOUNCE slot on Wednesday mornings, and covering the odd BGBARRE class . 

Georgia's sweet smile, occasional exasperated swear word, and irritatingly fantastic legs will keep you coming back for more and more of that English rose-y burrrrrrrn. (Baby.)

Millie Pryor

Teaches: BARRE, BEND, BOUNCE

Millie is an ex dancer with a love for music and movement who was drawn to teach Barre from her classical ballet training in her younger years.

Millie is delighted to be part of BarreFly and its infectious bad-ass attitude towards the barre principle. She is high energy, likes to have a laugh and to make people smile.

 

 Her classes are upbeat with so much collective energy whilst still focusing on

your individual movement and journey, whether you’re just starting out in Barre or are a more experienced Fly Girl. Millie keeps her classes spicy and challenging with banging tunes, so plan on working hard for yourself and having fun. That’s what it’s all about right?!

 

Millie can’t wait to meet you at the Barre xx

Nesse (Hillary) Cannon

Teaches: BARRE, BEND, BLAST

Our Founder - a plant-powered nutritionist, author, speaker, communications consultant, and all-round wellness warrior. Nesse is a four-time survivor of an ugly disease, former professional salsa dancer, part-time politics junkie, and full-time eye-roller. 

​​

When a series of personal catastrophies collided at once and Nesse's days darkened, she took solace in her beloved barre classes. The studio became her sanctuary and her students her saviours (just... without all the religious stuff). 

 

The experience led her to investigate the benefits of exercise on mental health, and the science behind "flow" state; eventually leading to the creation of her own brand of fitness — the irreverent, playful, intensely enjoyable variety that literally saved her life. She also speaks on the subject of achieving "Flow", and gives workshops on vegan and vegetarian nutrition for weight loss, disease prevention, and... you guessed it... mental health.

 

Nesse also offers virtual and in-person fitness classes and workshops on nutrition and mental health to businesses individuals and businesses around the UK and Europe. ​
