I’m new to pilates. Where should I start?
You must do a one hour private assessment prior to joining any classes. This will determine if you are a candidate for group reformer classes or private instruction.
How often should I do Pilates to get the maximum benefits?
For maximum benefits we recommend three sessions per week. Don’t fret if your life is too busy to come see us three times per week. We understand that everyone has unique time and budget constraints. Although 3 times per week is ideal; 1-‐2 sessions per week will still benefit you.
What is the difference between pilates mat-work and pilates with equipment?
First of all it’s important to realize that Pilates is a method of exercise. When we talk about Mat Pilates, we are talking about using the Pilates method to do exercises using only your own body as resistance. The equipment was designed to support and advance the body while practicing the Pilates method of exercising. They help teach the body how to move properly.
I’m pregnant. What classes can I take?
We recommend private lessons during your pregnancy. This ensures we can customize each workout specifically for your pregnancy issues.
I’ve just had a baby. What class should I start with?
After your assessment your teacher will recommend classes and modifications for a healthy and strong recovery. Restorative and/or fundamental classes would be your best option!
I’m injured. Can your classes help me?
Yes. After your assessment your teacher will recommend either private instruction or restorative classes. We will work closely with your medical professionals to ensure a safe and effective rehabilitation.
Is Pilates the same as Yoga?
No! Yoga holds poses while Pilates flows through a series of movements.
What do I wear?
Wear comfortable stretchy clothing that is not too loose so that the instructor can see the movement of your body. Pilates is done barefoot or in Toe Sox with non‐slip grips. Please remove jewellery and refrain from scented products.
