Private Sessions

A private session allows the instructor to focus on your individual needs by developing a programme shaped purely for you. It is advisable that all clients have a private session at some point to allow an understanding of how Pilates works best for your individual body. It also enables any sessions to be more personal to your requirements.

One to one sessions also help with understanding the basic principles involved in Pilates. This helps to give a greater knowledge of how your individual body works and can improve your overall confidence enabling you to join one of the small group sessions should you wish to do so.
