Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear?
Comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely, not too baggy so I can see your body alignment. You don’t need to wear shoes but socks are required.

Should I bring a mat with me?
Yes, please bring your own mat as these are not supplied, but I will provide all other equipment.

Why do I need to do a introductory assessment session first?
It will enable me to see how you currently move and then be able to put you into a class that works at the right level for you, it will also mean you can learn the fundamentals of the Pilates Method, which is essential for understanding the eight principles and getting the most out of your sessions.

Why are the ‘eight principles’ so important?
The eight principles underpin the Body Control Pilates approach to safe and effective teaching of Pilates. To understand the eight principles means that you will get the most out of your sessions and progress quicker.

Why are class sizes limited to a maximum of 12?
So that each client receives individual attention from the teacher during a session.

Is Pilates suitable for everyone?
Yes, it works at a level that is right for you and your needs and has no age limit. It is ideal for both men and women and you need no previous experience and can be of any level of fitness.

What if I have an injury?
During the enrolment process, I will ask you about any past or existing injuries or relevant medical problems. If you are currently seeing a health professional it is best to ask their advice first before performing any exercises and in some cases I might liaise with them, subject to your permission, to make sure the programme is tailored to your exact needs.

How often should I do Pilates?
At least once a week, 2 or 3 times if possible. Your body starts to remember new movement patterns the more often they are done, so as with any exercise, the more you practice you do the quicker you will notice changes.

Will I lose weight?
The aim of Pilates is not to lose weight, but as it strengthens core muscles and adds tone, it will start to change your body shape and your muscles will become longer and leaner.

How soon will I get results?
It depends on how often you practice and your own level of fitness. After the first few sessions you will start to have more awareness of your body and Joseph Pilates believed that “in 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 sessions you will see the difference and in 30 sessions you’ll be on your way to a whole new body.”

Are missed sessions refundable?
No, however it is possible to catch-up in another class in that block if there is availability. Private sessions require at least 24 hours notice of cancellation, however refunds will be given under exceptional circumstances at the discretion of the teacher.
