1. What is Pilates?
Pilates is: "the complete coordination of mind, body, and spirit." - Joseph Pilates

  • develops core strength
  • whole body movement retraining
  • elongates the spine and improves muscle tone
  • increases flexibility and strength
  • restores natural movement, improves posture and balance

2. What should I wear?
You should wear clothing that lets you move freely but is form fitting enough for the instructor to see your body position. Gym workout clothes or yoga clothing is most common. Comfortable pants or shorts that are not too baggy and a t-shirt or sports top would be fine. You will be in socks, no shoes.

3. How often should I do pilates?
Two to three times a week is ideal, but consistency is the most important thing. The more you practice, the more you'll notice your progress."In 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 you'll see the difference, in 30 you will have a whole new body." - Joseph Pilates

4. What is a duet?
A duet is a semi-private session with you and a buddy and one instructor. A duet is a great way to exercise with family or friends, and we urge you to find your own exercise partner.

5. Private sessions are expensive, are they worth it?
Private training in pilates is an investment in your overall health and well being. Private sessions specifically cater to your body to address any muscle imbalance or postural deviations you may have. This tailored approach trains your body where it needs it most to reach your fitness goals more efficiently. The proper body mechanics and good habits you practice in the studio will carry over into your daily activities and stay with you long after your session.
