Frequentally Asked Questions

Where do I start?

If you have any questions, you can call us for a free phone consultation and to schedule an Initial Private Session.  Clients with injuries, back or neck conditions. may need to begin with a YUR Back Initial Session.  We'll discuss your options on the phone before scheduling your first appointment. 

What is Pilates?

Pilates includes bodyweight exercises and springs for resistance training to develop a strong core and condition the whole body.  

I have done Pilates before.  Do I still need to start with a private session?

Yes.  New clients are required to begin with an Initial Private Session first.  After this session we will discuss your goals and suggest which package is suitable for you to continue with.  

After I complete an Initial Private Session what are my options?

You can continue with private sessions, or you and a friend can start semi-private sessions together as long as you both do not have any pre-existing injuries. Most of our clients take a series of private Pilates sessions first before joining semi-private sessions. 

What should I wear?

Comfortable athletic wear, free of buttons, snaps, and zippers. Semi-loose shorts or knee length capris are fine. We need to watch your joint alignment so please avoid wearing overly baggy clothing.  Please be discreet and avoid wearing short-shorts as we incorporate inversions and straddle stretches in our workouts and your legs will be up in the air. We do not require that you wear socks in our studio. If you do elect to wear socks, sticky bottom socks are your best bet so you don't slip off the equipment and get hurt. 

I understand you have a 24 hour cancelation policy on all private, semi-private and group classes. Can I avoid losing my session if I don't give a 24 hour notice?

If you don't provide a 24 hour cancellation notice, you will be charged in full for your appointment. If you can't make a session or a group class, then you can give away or sell your appointment time to a friend to avoid a cancellation penalty.  We will explain how this policy works when you start.
