Frequently Asked Questions
We get lots of questions from our students. In the sections below, we answer these, and some questions you never thought to ask! Some of the FAQ’s are answered through a video, while others are answered through text.
What happens after I Complete My Getting Started Package?
After you complete your 3 private Pilates sessions and 4 classes, you will able to attend classes that you were cleared to take during your Getting Started Sessions. Most clients begin with the Core Training Class. Sometimes it is recommended that you take a couple extra private sessions at a one-time reduced price for beginners. This is to ensure that you can organize your body safely and get the most from class sessions.

How Many Times Per Week Should I Take Classes?
Pilates is a wonderful body/mind system that allows you to work-out every day or as much as your body allows. Coming to class and practicing at home is an excellent combination to ensure long term strength, flexibility and vitality. That said, we find that once per week is not enough to maintain the changes you want to make in your body. Most successful clients find that 2-3 times per week is optimal. We offer package pricing and V.I.P. rates to help you be successful and stay within your budget.
