FAQs ABOUT PILATES
1. How often should I practice pilates?
Pilates is gentle and safe enough to practice everyday. We recommend 2-3 sessions per week for optimal results. However, we understand time and budget are factors in everyone's life and will work with each client to develop a program that fits her or his budget, time and goals.
2. What should I wear to my sessions?
Comfortable clothing that allows you to move. As you progress throughout your pilates practice, gaining more strength, endurance and flexibility, you may be putting your legs in the air, bending over to reach for your toes, etc. Wear something in which you are comfortable doing these kinds of moves. If you are taking a poolates sessions, wear what you'd wear to go swimming and bring dry clothes to wear after your pool session.
