Congratulations on taking the Pilates plunge. I know it can be daunting starting out with new faces, new places and perhaps a new system of exercise for you but I promise I’ll go gently. I love Pilates and I love teaching but I do believe it’s a two way process.
I need to work for you and you for me.
Pilates isn’t something you’ll necessarily click with overnight and it might not be for you in the long run. That’s fine (I’ll try not to take it personally) but do give it at least a few weeks. I usually reckon on four weeks to notice some real mobility changes and eight to start really ‘getting it’ – quicker if you are able to practice at home.
What do I need to bring?
Not much. Comfy clothes and perhaps a bottle of water. You won’t need trainers for the class. Bare feet is best but socks is fine too. Leggings and a close fitting top are ideal clothing options but above all be comfortable.
I have mats and equipment although you may want to consider buying your own mat if you’d like to continue to practice at home.
