Who is Every Body Pilates for?

Every Body Pilates is for any adult who wishes to learn better movement habits for better living. Our goal is for our clients to take the skills they learn in the studio into every part of their daily life.

We break movement down into its smallest fundamental skills requiring all students to start at the very beginning.

By honing and conditioning these foundational movement skills; we uniformly develop the body so that it may be as flexible as it is strong, as balanced as it is stable, as coordinated as it is integrated, as mentally facile as it sharp.

How often do you recommend doing Pilates?

The more often you do Pilates, the steeper the learning curve and more immediate your results. How often depends entirely on your goals or physical condition. No one walks into a robust Pilates practice. It has to grow organically through consistent practice.

Our programming is designed so all new clients begin with privates and Directed Workout.

You will be asked to practice your homework on a daily basis (Daily Practice). Homework is supported through pre-recorded videos and live virtual sessions.

To start, at a minimum, Privates are attended 2x a month and Directed Workouts are attended at minimum 1-2x a week.

As you grow through our programming, group classes may be added to your weekly practice.

I already have Physical Therapy exercises I am supposed to do, do I have to do yours too?

Our programming offers PT support. Instructors work with you to relate your PT exercises to your developing Pilates practice and help you get the most out of each exercise. Your PT exercises and your homework have the same goal in mind to help you move without pain.

I already have experience with the Pilates Method, can I skip ahead to group classes?

Our approach is unique and may be very different than your previous experience with the Pilates Method.

Group classes are a part of our overall programming and not a stand-a-lone service.

Our programming is designed to begin with Private Lessons, Daily at Home Practice and Directed Workout before adding group classes to their weekly schedule. This applies to all clients no matter where you are starting from.

We break movement do into its smallest fundamental parts so that we can build skills from the bottom up.

I do not have time for “homework.” Do I have to do it?

A daily exercise practice is essential to build new movement skills. Learning to do something takes time. The more time you put towards Pilates the sooner it can benefit you.

We introduce exercises that are simple and can be done while brushing your teeth, sitting in traffic or doing the dishes. Change happens because of relentlessness, not from force. We encourage clients to add sets, not reps. This allows for you to progress organically without catastrophic injuries or even really inconvenient ones.
