Because Pilates can be customised to your specific needs, where you start depends on you.Rehabilitation and injury prevention:
Many people are referred to our studio to address an injury, chronic condition, postural issue, or mystery pain. If this is you, we recommend taking at least 1 private session with one of our highly trained and experienced teachers to give you recommendations of what classes are best for you along with personalised exercises. Private sessions must be booked by email
, phone (780) 421-9853, or in person. Find your core connection and improve everything about your alignment: If you are coming for General Core Conditioning/Cross Training/Improving Your Posture/Injury Prevention/Maintenance.
Pilates by nature is therapeutic, so often a group class is a very safe way to start. 2x/week is recommended, although many of our clients come 1 or 3x per week. In general, a perfect balance is taking 1 Mat class and 1 Equipment class per week, however your needs may be different. Our receptionists and/or teachers can guide you through this.
Levels: The Pilates Mat and Equipment classes have levels 1-4. Total beginners should start at level 1, however those with a strong yoga or fitness background may prefer to start in level 2. In general, levels 2/3, 3 & 4 are meant for those with Pilates experience. The Yoga, Gravity Straps & Kettlebars, and SBM (Stretch, Breathe, & Meditate) classes are all levels.
