Frequently asked questions
If this is your first time on the reformer, we recommend booking a private session before attending one of our classes. This will allow more time for your instructor to teach you safe use of the machine as well as giving you a more thorough introduction to the Pilates principles and movements.
If you are currently injured, recovering from surgery or illness then we would also recommend a private session first with one of our physiotherapists. This will allow us to determine if you are eligible for classes, and come up with a plan to get you there.
If you are a beginner and prefer the idea of a group class, then our BASE class is the right option for you.
