HOW LONG DOES THE CLASS GO FOR?
Each pilates class is 1 hour and includes a short relaxation at the end so you leave the class feeling energised but not wired!
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
All you need to bring along is a yoga/pilates mat, a drink bottle and a towel if you like to work up a sweat! Whilst there are some mats available at the studio, please bring along your own if possible to avoid missing out. Wear light, comfortable clothes you can move in. You don't need shoes or socks in class.
IS THERE EFTPOS AVAILABLE?
Yes! There is eftpos available at the studio to pay for your classes or passes. Cash is also accepted.
DO I NEED TO BOOK IN?
No, you don't need to book in prior to coming to each pilates class. Just arrive 10-15 minutes early to your first class to fill out a student release form and organise payments. However, to save time before class you can download the release form here and bring it with you to your first class if you prefer. After your first class, please still try to arrive 5-10 minutes early so we can make sure we start on time to give you maximum time for working out!
HOW MANY TIMES A WEEK DO I NEED TO PILATES?
Attending 2 classes a week is sufficient to notice an improvement in your strength and body tone (how awesome is that!). Pilates is also a great way to build core strength and improve your flexibility to compliment your current training/ team sports.
I AM PREGNANT, IS IT SAFE TO DO PILATES?
Pilates is still safe for women who are pregnant, however it is important to inform Alex prior to starting your class as she can provide modifications to keep mum and bub safe throughout the practice.
HOW LONG AFTER HAVING A BABY CAN I START PILATES?
It is recommended that new mums wait at least 3 months before commencing pilates classes to allow the body to rest after child birth and avoid problems such as ab separation. Alex recommends getting the all-clear from your GP or health practitioner (Eg. Physiotherapist) before starting classes just to be sure! Pilates is a great way to strengthen the pelvic floor after child birth and works on building up core body strength to help with all the day-to-day jobs mums get up to!
