If we’re being honest, absolutely everyone can benefit from private instruction! If you’re looking for targeted one-on-one attention, with each session truly tailored to your individual needs, private instruction is right for you. Particularly if you are working through an injury or recovery, pain management, prenatal/postpartum, or have never tried pilates before - private instruction is the way to go. That said, even if you don’t fall into any of those specific categories, one-on-one attention is the most effective way to build strength and meet any specific goals!
A private session is 50-55 minutes and truly tailored to your body and needs. We use a full array of equipment including the reformer, Cadillac, ladder barrel, Wunda chair, and small props during these sessions. Although everyone’s session will look a bit different, a strong emphasis on building core strength is central to all of our instruction.

Just come with an open mind and a willingness to learn! Wear clothes that you are comfortable exercising in, and bring a water bottle in case you get thirsty. We try to limit our use of single-use items in the studio, so we do not offer disposable bottles or cups but we do have a filtered water cooler. We’ll provide mats and workout equipment, so there’s no need to bring your own.
For private or duet sessions, we ask that you cancel no later than 24 hours prior to the start of your session. We ask that you respect that we are a very small business; so every booking counts. That said, we do make exceptions for true emergencies.
