1. Initial Introduction
We meet you and you have your first session on the Reformer. This starts your understanding of HOW the machine works WITH you and FOR you. You will FEEL what it’s like to SLIDE and GLIDE into great posture and true core strength.
This can be either needs driven where you are managing varying issues that would disadvantage you in a group. Alternatively a 1:1 learning environment may simply be how you like to engage with your body and Pilates.
We very strongly recommend a 1:1 programme for anyone referred to Pilates by an orthopaedic consultant or a physiotherapist. During this initial session, we can work to understand your needs, modifying any exercise before you join the group we believe you will thrive in.
Men and women irrespective of age or ailment tell us of the enormous benefits experienced because of 1:1 Pilates programming.
Joseph Pilates focussed on various breathing techniques to help relaxation, lower blood pressure and to activate muscles that help improve posture – that why we focus so much on our breathing.
