The Choice is Yours

What kind of training we offer?

Pilates Training combines exercises on different Pilates apparatus and on the mat. Some people prefer individual attention, while others enjoy the dynamics of training with a training partner. The Pilates method respects the individual’s anatomy, its inherent possibilities and its limitations. The method is special in the way in which it can be individually tailored to fit your personal requirements. J. H. Pilates originally developed his method as an individual training method, which was not intended to be taught in groups. We recommend starting off with individual lessons and then switching to group training, if you prefer. A combination of individual and group training sessions is ideal.

Individual sessions
A Pilates instructor works one-on-one with you on the Pilates apparatus and on the mat. Individual training is the best way of getting to know the Pilates method. It is a particularly good choice for beginners, people in rehabilitation and for those who wish to have the complete attention of an instructor for themselves.

A Pilates instructor works with two or three people on the Pilates apparatus and on the mat. These training sessions are ideal for people who wish to train together on a regular basis and have already benefited from individual lessons.

Group Training
Training in the group basically involves doing exercises on the mat. The body itself must create the resistance that the apparatus would otherwise create. These sessions also incorporate exercises on the Wall Unit (Tower). We offer group sessions for every proficiency level. Please see our timetable for more details.
