Cancellation Policy

24-hour notice required.

Please note that all sessions require a 24-hour cancellation in order to avoid being charged for missed appointments.

I will try to accommodate rescheduling a session within the same day (earlier or later due to a last minute conflict), but if the session needs to be cancelled or moved to another day with less than 24- hours’ notice, you will be charged for the session.

Sessions are 55 minutes.

your first session

When you arrive for your first session, you will be asked to fill out a New Client Form. Please list any / all past injuries, rehabilitations, and shoulder, hip, or knee (or whatever!) replacements.

Although you may feel that the injury is no longer significant, your initial session will be a time of evaluation — alignment, posture, etc. It is important to address any physical inbalances with a program that meets your individualized needs.

Going forward, each new session will enable you to develop strength, coordination and a deeper understanding of the principles of Pilates (Contrology) — and you'll probably feel taller too.

And, as always — you WILL have FUN!

Session Descriptions

Private Sessions

Swan on the barrelA private session provides hands-on, individual instruction. Clients use Pilates equipment and incorporate mat work into their session. Private sessions are strongly recommended for beginners, anyone with injury that may need modifications, and those looking for an intensive, personalized experience. My goal is to ensure that each session addresses your individual goals and needs.

Alternatively, clients may decide to share the session with a friend or family member to make it more cost-efficient in a Duet session.

Duet Sessions

In a Duet session, the instructor works with two students. Clients use Pilates equipment and incorporate mat work into the session. The session is tailored to meet both students' individual needs, but allows each client to share the experience and cost with a friend. Session may use a combo of reformers, mat, Wunda Chair or Ladder Barrel.

WHY classical pilates?

I received training from Purely Pilates, the Bay Area regional training center for Power Pilates of New York.

Power Pilates teaches the Classical Method of Pilates, a systematic, integrative approach closely adhering to how Mr. Pilates created his Method of Contrology.

Power Pilates is the standard in Pilates education and oversees comprehensive training programs all over the world. Contact me if you would like information on how you can receive training to become a certified Pilates instructor.
