1-2-1 Pilates Studio Sessions
I teach private 1-2-1 Pilates at my own studio in Shanklin on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings. These sessions are ideal for those with busy lifestyles who cannot get to my mat classes. There is no requirement to book a block of sessions but they are by appointment only so please ring me if you are interested in coming along.
What you can expect
My 1-2-1 studio sessions are an essential starting point to learn the correct techniques of Pilates and I always insist that new-comers see me at least twice on a 1-2-1 basis to start with. However many people choose to continue with these more private classes as they feel more comfortable and this is fine!
In a 1-2-1 Pilates session I can focus my attention on any specific issues you may have, such as back problems or other medical conditions. These sessions enable me to learn about you and tailor exercises to meet your needs.
The first time you come, it is a bit like learning how to drive. Each movement pattern is assessed and corrected so that you learn the fundamentals correctly. Your posture, movement patterns and any medical issues you have need to be carefully considered in order to tailor the exercises to you.
This way you will really reap the benefits of Pilates and take your knowledge forward to your mat classes or studio sessions.
In the studio, you will work on mat based exercise as well as using the Pilates Reformer and Chair. The equipment can look scary but it does help you to get the fullest range of movement possible. It really takes Pilates to another level.
Sometimes in mat classes there are movements that you don’t quite get or do not seem to flow correctly. The reformer and chair help you to understand the movement so that you can return to the mat and really feel the benefits.

Small Group Pilates Studio Sessions
If you feel that you cannot afford to continue with 1-2-1 sessions, but are intimidated by joining a larger mat class, then why not consider one of my Small Group Studio Sessions?
You share an hour long session with only 2 or 3 other clients, working with the reformer and/or stability chair as well as traditional mat exercises. As always, in these sessions I will tailor the exercises to suit your needs.
