** NOTE: Due to COVID-19 and our (finally!) ability to reopen, and in order to maintain required physical distancing, we are currently offering In-Studio Private and Duo Sessions.
Also NOTE: ONLINE sessions are also available, and these are done with the equipment that the participant has at home. We are not renting out our large equipment.
Work one-on-one (Private) or with a friend (Duo) to fully enjoy the Pilates method using all of the Equipment in our studio (OR, for ONLINE sessions, the student will use what they have at hand/in home.
Private sessions are a perfect way to help with any physical injuries that may inhibit you from participating in Group Classes or that you may be post-rehabilitating.
As well, you’ll get ALL of the personal attention to detail during your session, to kick things up a notch (or.. if you prefer, to work on particular exercises or areas of interest for you).
Suitable for all ages, from beginner to advanced participants, you’ll get customized sessions that are tailored to your goals and needs.
Private or Duo sessions are recommended for all new participants to Pilates, to help assess and offer any modifications that might be helpful for the participant when entering Group classes — these are not mandatory, but a very effective way to get the most out of your workouts.

Hypopressive (Low Pressure Fitness)
Hypopressive™ Method is also known as Low Pressure Fitness. With Low Pressure Fitness, you will experience an amazingly safe way to exercise the core and pelvic floor with strong results. This is an especially effective way to train the core Post Partum / Post Natal, and it is recommended to start this training BEFORE any other type of exercise as a Post Natal client.Hypopressive™ is a term used to describe a decrease or reduction in pressure, and Low Pressure Fitness is a breathing & postural form of exercise designed specifically to target the core without inflicting detrimental pressure to the abdominal wall or pelvic floor.Low Pressure Fitness is a safe and effective way to train those muscles that are needed to withstand any problematic pressure resulting from our everyday living (coughing/sneezing etc..) or exercise; allowing us to safely and confidently continue doing the activities we love.
* Do you have a persistent cough? Allergies? Asthma? Clearing your throat often? These can contribute to a weak abdominal/pelvic cavity, leaving you vulnerable to SUI (stress urinary incontinence – yes, men too!). Low Pressure Fitness CAN help.

Not only are they very effective excercises for preventing some types of pathology, they also improve your sports performance as well as toning your midsection and improving your resting abdominal tone.

* It can be especially effective for anyone experiencing:
