Why Private Pilates sessions are hard to beat?
Private Pilates sessions are individualized and tailored to your own unique needs and goals. In a one-on-one setting, we can design your class to meet those needs, maximizing your results and helping you reach your goals faster.
Private sessions are the best way to maximize your results because sessions are individually tailored to your unique needs and goals.
Regularly scheduled sessions with an instructor mean someone (me) is waiting for you to show up. This is a powerful motivator that will make you less likely to skip a workout.
Sessions are conducted within the privacy of your home or my private studio; you can relax and enjoy your class.

As a Pilates instructor, I get asked many questions about Pilates, fitness, and health in general. Here are some of the most popular questions and my answers.
Q: What is Pilates?
A: Pilates is a mind-body exercise system that utilizes a mat and/or specialized equipment and evolved from the teachings of Joseph Pilates. Pilates is a low-impact modality that is safe and effective for anyone. Low-impact, however, does not mean easy. Pilates is challenging. Pilates classes typically focus on core activation, pelvic stability, strengthening and mobilizing the spine, scapular stabilizing and mobility, correcting alignment and imbalances, as well as release work and stretching. After teaching Pilates for nearly a decade, I have never met a person who couldn’t benefit from this method.
Q: Is Pilates right for me?
A: I haven’t met anyone that isn’t right for Pilates. Pilates is for everyone regardless of age (I have multiple clients 65+), weight, fitness level, or gender (yes, guys, Joseph Pilates developed this method, and he was a man). If you are experiencing active pain or are looking to rehab an active injury, I will refer you to a medical professional first to be assessed before starting a Pilates program.
Q: Do I need to be in shape to do Pilates?
A: NO, (I get this a lot!) “I want to do Pilates, but I need to get in shape first.” Pilates meets you where you are; whether you are an Olympic athlete, postnatal mom, or 60 and brand new to exercise.
The beauty of one-on-one Pilates sessions is that each class is tailored to your specific needs and goals.
Q: What equipment do I need?
A: The majority of my sessions only require a mat. I suggest purchasing a Pilates mat that is slightly thicker than a Yoga mat to better protect your spine. In addition, I may provide you with a list of suggested props based on your individual needs and goals; however, as long as you have a mat, you can have a great class.
There are some great inexpensive props that you can purchase (you can see a suggested list of props here). However, you can also substitute many basic household items (think water bottles for hand weights) or just omit the prop entirely and still get a fantastic class.
Q: Will Pilates tone and strengthen?
A: Absolutely, Pilates is resistance training, ideal for strengthening and toning your body in a safe, low impact, and effective way.
Q: Is Pilates the same as Yoga?
A: No, Pilates is a unique exercise modality that utilizes the mat and several different apparatus that provide support and resistance. Both Pilates and Yoga are mind-body exercise systems. Both use a mat. Both will help you increase strength and flexibility. However, Pilates is not just a different type of Yoga.
Q: Does Pilates only work your core?
A: No, while Pilates emphasizes core control and strength, Pilates is, in fact, a total body workout. At the end of a Pilates session, you can expect to feel your whole body (in the best way possible).
Is Pilates just stretching?
A: See Above
Q: Will Pilates help me lose weight?
A: Maybe, Pilates may or may not help you lose weight. Any form of movement is great for overall health and weight loss. Pilates is an intelligent form of movement that will challenge you both mentally and physically, which is key for weight loss. However, If weight loss is your ultimate goal, I will refer you to a Registered Dietitian or health care provider first. Then we can work together towards meeting your goals.
I hope this helps to answer many of the questions you have regarding Pilates. If you are still skeptical, or there is something I didn’t answer, please shoot me an email, and I am happy to help!
