Can anyone do pilates?
Pilates and GYROTONIC® exercise is beneficial for people of all ages, fitness levels and body conditions (i.e. lower back issues, scoliosis, and pregnancy). The methods are like a bridge between physical fitness and physical therapy and our instructors can adapt, modify and customize a plan for each individual's specific needs. Some advanced moves and sequences will challenge the most elite athlete and yet others are manageable for those beginning their fitness journey or dealing with an injury.
I'm a beginner. How do I start?
If this is your first time trying Pilates or GYROTONIC®, we highly recommend that you start by scheduling a private lesson with an instructor. This will allow you the opportunity to learn the fundamentals, become familiar with the equipment, as well as for your instructor to develop an individualized training plan for you. Afterwards, you can certainly continue with private instruction or move into a group class.
What should I wear?
Women should wear clothes that are tight enough that the instructor can see your body, but that you can still move in. Leggings and a tank top are a great option. For men, a t-shirt and long pants or shorts will do, but no short running shorts please (unless biking shorts are worn underneath). Also, classes are sans shoes, but you can wear socks if having bare feet freaks you out.
How long are classes?
All private sessions and classes are 50 minutes in length.
How Do I Sign Up?
For classes, please call or contact the studio. For private instruction, you may take a look at the instructor bios to find the right teacher to meet your individual needs. You may contact them directly or you may also contact the studio to help you in your decision.
What is the cancellation policy?
If you must cancel your scheduled class, please do so 24 hours in advance to avoid a full-service charge. While we understand that unforeseeable circumstances and illnesses do occur, our 24-hour cancellation policy remains in place.
