What should I wear to a Pilates session?

Leggings and a t’shirt or a vest are best.  I will need to see how the body is moving, which can be difficult in baggy clothes.  Bare feet are preferred but toe socks are ok for the feet shy.  Most importantly I want you to feel comfortable.

How long is a session?

Each session is 1 hour long.

Your first session will include a postural assessment, taking into consideration any previous injuries or surgery.  This will take approx 20 minutes. The final 40 minutes of the first session will be spent showing you how to get started including how to use the equipment safely and most importantly I will get you moving in a safe and relaxing environment.

After your first session I will then devise a unique programme to meet your needs ready for your follow up class.  I will continue to work with you over a period of time as you progress and start to reap the benefits of Pilates.  As your body continues to improve I will develop and adapt your routine.

How often should I practice Pilates?

It’s entirely up to you but I have noticed with regular clients that weekly visits allow for faster changes in building strength and flexibility.  I will give you at least two mat exercises to practice at home in-between sessions with me.  I do offer a discount for block bookings of five sessions, which are valid for six weeks.

Who benefits from Pilates?

Pilates is for most people, whatever their level of fitness or body shape. That’s what makes it so great.  Pilates is a low impact, controlled form of exercise guaranteed to energise you and make you feel stronger, longer and confident.
