WHEN IS THE STUDIO OPEN FOR PRIVATE SESSIONS?

WHAT LEVEL ARE THE MAT CLASSES?
The classes are for all levels so you're encouraged to be aware of your body and rest as needed during the classes. It's helpful to take an introductory private session before you jump into a class because there are some basic positions and verbal cues that will make the group classes more productive for you. There is a learning curve, so don't worry if it doesn't all gel completely in your first attempt!
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO MY PRIVATE SESSION OR MAT CLASS?
If you're coming to a mat class, bring your own mat or you can rent one at the studio for $1. Other than that, we'll provide everything you need!

DO I NEED TO CALL TO RESERVE A SPOT IN THE MAT OR GYROKINESIS CLASSES?
Nope. It's best to show up a little early to get a spot. If it's your first time in the studio, leave extra time to fill out your release form before class.
DO I ALWAYS BOOK WITH THE SAME INSTRUCTOR?
That's totally up to you. A lot of people like the different perspectives that come with learning from a variety of instructors.If you're flexible with instructors, it's more likely you'll get your desired appointment time. However, if you find one person that is a perfect fit for you, we'll do what we can to accommodate you.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I COME IN?
That depends on your goals and what you do outside of class. Everyone is different, so talk to your instructor to find out the best situation for you. Some people start at twice a week and then mix it up from there. You have the option to add in mat classes to supplement the work you do in private sessions, and the instructors love giving homework exercises but it's up to you to do them!
I JUST FOUND OUT I'M PREGNANT. IS IT OKAY TO START PILATES?
First, talk with your doctor! We're more than happy to work with you throughout your pregnancy because Pilates is so beneficial leading up to childbirth and assisting with recovery. Just make sure you tell your instructor as modification and special considerations are necessary.
