The first thing you need to do is schedule a private session with one of our instructors. During this time, our focus is on safety and ensuring that you have a positive experience.
You will be given an overview of the apparatus and movements that are done in our group sessions. And many of our clients love and continue to take private lessons, so we offer both paths as choices to advance your Pilates journey.
You will also learn how to use the apparatus, and we will evaluate your body and make any necessary modifications that might be helpful in your future as a Pilates student.
Usually after 5 to 10 sessions, most students are ready to join a group class if that is their goal. This will give you a good introduction to the apparatus and allow us to assess your strengths and weaknesses. We can teach you any modifications you may need, as students in classes are responsible for themselves.
A few private sessions will teach you basic set-up and technique, as well as get you familiar with form and alignment. This doesn’t necessarily mean that Pilates is done slowly. In fact, it is meant to be done with flow. It’s a workout. The key element is to always use control.
