Frequently Asked Questions


Pilates matwork is the better known style of exercise as it is more accessible in gyms and requires no equipment. Pilates matwork is an effective bodyweight routine, using the resistance of gravity to work one's body.   Occasionally teachers incorporate the use of small props.

The Pilates apparatus are specially designed Pilates pieces of equipment. These apparatus offer resistance or assistance to an exercise. 

Pilates equipment classes are choreographed 50 minute sessions.  These small group classes allow clients to experience the challenge of an equipment based session in a group environment.

What to wear?

  • Wear comfortable fitting clothing (neither too loose nor too tight, clothing that allows ease of movement).  The teacher needs to see your form.  We prefer to do Pilates barefoot or with non-slip foot socks or undeez.
