Private Pilates Sessions


What to expect during a private Pilates session?

Every BODY is unique and works in their own way; from walking, talking, stretching and playing. This means that a one size fits all approach to fitness will not work for everyone and needs to be custom tailored to each individual so you can get the most out of each session. Our one-on-one session will be with one of our skilled instructors. Each of our instructors have completed a full comprehensive certification with over 450 hours of training before working with clients. This ensures that we can work with you and your specific needs, and will meet you exactly where you are in your body. You will not be push you past your limits and force you to do endless reps, painful exercises, or be brought to fatigue. You will feel your muscles working in your arms, legs and core, to tone your whole body in a non-invasive way that is low impact and very effective.

You will work on every piece of Pilates apparatus (including Reformer, chair, barrels and Cadillac). Pilates is designed to make you perform better and feel better. Private Pilates training allows your instructor to focus solely on you and your needs. Every session is planned around how the client is feeling that day and often the plan is switched up mid-session.

Our Pilates teachers

Having a fully trained teacher means you will never get bored because your teacher understands the full method and will be able to apply the method to your specific needs. Another benefit to training privately is you get a chance to talk to your Pilates instructor. You can let them know if something hurts or does not feel right. You can also tell them if a move is too easy and you need more resistance. Your instructor can make the changes on the apparatus for you in the beginning so you do not have to worry about learning how to work the apparatus right away. Instead, all you have to do is focus on your form and breathing. You will build a very close bond to your instructor, and when you find the right one it’s truly like a sisterhood.

How often should I come to Pilates?

This all depends on you and your goals. One time a week = injury prevention. Two times a week = Strength & Flexibility. Three times a week = Full Body Transformation.
Many clients do both one -on-one training and small group classes. We have a saying in the studio. We learn in our privates and we practice in our classes!

What will I feel?

You may feel sore after a session, especially at the beginning and that is okay. You are moving your body in new ways and it will take some time to get used to it.

What will Pilates do for YOU?

Pilates is a full body workout. The benefits of Pilates are where the real payoff is. You will tone your whole body, increase energy, increase range of motion and flexibility, reduces achy backs, builds strength in the core to reduce tension, improve balance and joint health.

Pilates History

Pilates was created by Joseph H. Pilates over 80 years ago and was called, Contrology. Today, we recognize the method by the name, Pilates. Mr. Pilates began to develop his work to help soldiers recover from injuries sustained during war. The first apparatus created was from the hospital bed springs and was named, the bednasium. It evolved into the Cadillac as we now know it. As Mr. Pilates developed his method, more apparatus was created, including the famous reformer. While the modern Reformer looks different than the original with claw foot legs, the same principles apply.
