Frequently Asked Questions
What will happen at my Introductory and Health Assessment Session?
Firstly, I will take time with you to run through your Enrolment Form and if you have answered YES to any questions we will spend time discussing the any relevant medical issues.
Secondly, I will give you some information about the 8 principles of Pilates and how they will become part of not only your Pilates class but also how they will serve to help you in your functional life, ie at home, at work, at play etc.
Next we will together look at how you hold your body and what you feel about your posture and how the Pilates Method will be able to help you.
Next I will take you through some basic building block exercises which will highlight the principles of Pilates already talked about.
This session is for you to get to know me and also to decide if Pilates is definitely for you. It also allows me to understand your body better prior to joining a class and if there are health issues that need to be monitored, I have all the details and can make sure that you are safe in your practice.
Do I have to have done Pilates before joining a class?
No, but before joining a class you will need to book your Introductory and Health Assessment Session. This takes place at my Studio, Pilates in the Loft in Chislehurst. After this session and if we are both happy for you to start in a class then that is the next step. Sometimes it may be advisable to do more than the Introductory session, and this is something we talk about in your first session.
I'm not sure about exercising in a group class, can I continue with private sessions?
Of course, my Studio is designed to work with clients on a 1 to 1 basis. These sessions are arranged at a time to suit you.
