Private sessions are strongly recommended for those new to exercise, have limited physical activity, need individual attention, or cannot inhale and exhale on demand. Private sessions ensure that you build a solid foundation on Pilates equipment, terms, body placement, body alignment, movements, breath patterns, muscular engagement, and timing. As a result, clients may safely practice Pilates in class and at home.
Pilates sessions are also strongly recommended for clients with special circumstances, including clients experiencing pregnancy, surgery recovery, osteoporosis, scoliosis, sciatica, frozen shoulder, and herniated or bulging discs at L4, L5, or S1. In the above situations, medical clearance is required to begin Pilates. Additionally, we will not train clients that are pregnant and have never done Pilates or have a history of miscarriage in their first trimester.
Classes are for those that have prior Pilates experience or athletic backgrounds. Generally, clients with experience in football, basketball, volleyball, gymnastics, dance, or yoga have an easier transition into Pilates classes than most. Classes are small, but individualized attention is limited.
