frequently asked questions
As each person comes with different needs and backgrounds, we recommend that your first session be a private session. During your first private session your practitioner will assess your functional movement, and introduce you to the principles of Pilates including the breathing techniques and apparatus. This session will deepen your awareness of your strengths, weaknesses and imbalances which will inform the types of classes and Pilates training you choose to pursue. Your practitioner will help you determine if more private sessions are needed, and when you are ready for semi-private sessions or group classes.
We recommend that absolute beginners take 2-3 private sessions before advancing to semi-private and group mat classes. You can start Pilates by taking mat classes if you do not have any major injuries. Please discuss this with a Pilates teacher before your first class.
If you are new to Pilates, but you are used to exercising with your bodyweight, we recommend doing 3-5 Mat or Reformer Intro classes. These classes are designed to introduce you to the Pilates method foundations, the breath and neutral spine positions in a slower paced class. Once you feel comfortable you will easily progress to Mat or Reformer Beginner level.
If you have practiced Pilates before but haven’t done it for a while, start with a Level 1 and progress to Level 2 when you feel strong and confident. Discuss with your teacher if you are unsure.
If you have injuries, start your rehabilitation with a private session. We offer a full postural assessment with our Physiotherapist. Once you are comfortable with the Pilates terminology and exercise techniques, you can combine both machine sessions and group mat classes for a varied program.
