The first class will be a private session that includes an assessment and getting started on the fundamentals of Pilates that form the base of your programme. We encourage people to have several individual sessions if possible as it makes the transition into a group much easier. After the first class you may choose to have more private lessons or come in a group session. This is something you should discuss with your instructor at the end of your first session.
Group Pilates sessions
After your first class you may choose to have more private lessons, or come into a group session. Everyone works at their own pace, and all sessions are fully supervised with a maximum of five people in a group.
If you have had an accident that is covered by ACC you need to book in with a physiotherapist to be assessed and taken through exercises that address your particular problem. You will find that the experienced instructors can use the adaptability of Pilates apparatus to suit specific types of rehabilitation and give just the right resistance and manual assistance for all stages of your rehabilitation.
You may have several sessions with a physiotherapist and if you want to carry on with Pilates for injury prevention, general wellbeing or to manage a chronic problem your Pilates trained physiotherapist will advise you on which of the following options would be most suitable for you.
