How do you start Pilates?

It can be a bit daunting to figure out where to start though.  There's just a couple of things to consider when you're not sure what type of Pilates class to start with. Here's the low down.

Private Pilates - Brisbane and Paddington

Start with an Initial Private Session if...

  • you want to be doing Studio Sessions – individually tailored classes with maximum of 4 participants
  • you’re recovering from injury
  • you are pregnant
  • you haven’t exercised in a while
  • you are experiencing pain
  • you have osteoporosis
  • you enjoy close supervision and support
  • you have any other issues that you’re just not sure about

What's involved

A Private Consultation helps us to identify your specific needs and goals.

We want you to be safe, comfortable and challenged when you’re doing Pilates and the best way to get all of those things is by getting to know your ins and outs and ups and downs.

We will help you decide where to go from here.

  • you enjoy a challenging and well-supervised workout and are confident in your movement

What's involved

We want to pack in as much punch as we can in our classes, so expect to transition with some pace between moves and get a sweat up.

What our clients think

“Some of the benefits I noticed immediately, such as improved mood and energy, while others were subtle and snuck up on me over time. My posture and flexibility are the best they’ve ever been, but I’m also stronger and more confident.”
