I HAVE NEVER TAKEN PILATES BEFORE. WHAT CAN I EXPECT FOR MY FIRST LESSONS AT ABSOLUTELY PILATES?
Your first session will be a 1:1 session at Absolutely Pilates. Our instructors will do a brief movement assessment and review the principals of Pilates movement. You will be introduced to the Pilates equipment (both small and large apparatus) and you will discover nuances of movement that you may not have experienced in other forms of exercise.
Pilates is designed to provide clients with a new awareness of how their bodies move and how movement can improve not only during a Pilates session, but during other forms of exercise as well as during our everyday lives. You will feel a difference in the way you sit, stand, walk, breathe and carry yourself!
