How to Get Started
Curious about starting Pilates? Excellent!
Here's how it works.
I offer a free 45-minute initial consultation to anyone who wants to find out what Pilates can do for them. Simply send me a message and we can arrange a date and time to meet at my studio. In this appointment, we will discuss your goals with Pilates, I will ask you to fill out an in-depth health questionnaire, and I will take you through and complete a postural check. This process is essential so that you and I both can get a sense of whether we will work well together. I want to make sure Pilates is the right modality for you, and I'm the right person to help you with your goals.
In this initial meeting, we will decide your next steps.
Commonly, new clients start with 4 private sessions. Each lesson will always start with a mat based warm-up and have a mobility section. This is followed by essential core stabilisation exercises and some spinal mobility work. Think of this as your foundation to which we then use the Pilates apparatus to build on more specific goal orientated exercises.
After the initial 4 private classes, most people are ready to join my small group sessions. To maintain the highest quality of teaching, these small group classes have a maximum of 3 people and are 60 minutes long, hence they are called Trios.
To make sure each of my clients can work towards their personal goals in the best possible way, you will have your own programme to follow which will be bespoke to you, your needs and goals.
If you prefer to have the security of an even smaller class, then Semi Privates (2 people sharing) are available too.
Every 3-6 months (or after 20 sessions) I recommend arranging a private lesson to review your progress and set new goals.
