I pride myself on understanding each and every one of my client's needs. I achieve this by ensuring that I see every new client in person. I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and experience and love helping my clients to achieve the most out of their Pilates classes.
I offer two 1-2-1 sessions with each new client, made up of two one hour sessions, either online or in person, if geography allows. The first session is a fact finding consultation to discover medical history and any injuries. During the first session, a full postural analysis is conducted, along with an introduction to the basic principles of Pilates. You will learn how to find neutral alignment, understand how to engage your pelvic floor muscles along with other muscles within the core. I will take you through some simple exercises, which you will then practice at home before your next session.
The second 1-2-1 offers you the opportunity to learn about all of the positions in Pilates, to ensure that when you join my classes you feel confident in the class. During the second 1-2-1 we conduct a tailor-made review and you can ask any questions you may have.
Following a month of attending my classes, I then offer every client a follow up 1-2-1 where we review progress together and you will learn the next steps of your Pilates' journey. You will learn how to maximise your Pilates' potential and achieve greater benefits from your Pilates' classes.
Each 1-2-1 consultation is priced at the introductory rate of £25 per session (1-2-1 Pilates tuition is usually charged at £35 per hour).
Every client then has access to unlimited classes along with my video library for £10 per week. I run 10 Pilates and 2 Cardio, Strength and Conditioning online classes per week and I have over 30 videos in my library, ranging from 15 minutes to 45 minutes. The videos include Pilates, Mobility and Cardio, Strength and Conditioning.
New Client Follow Up 1-2-1
Following a month of attending my classes, I offer every new client a follow up 1-2-1 where we review your progress together. This session will also give you the opportunity to learn the next steps of your Pilates’ journey, which will allow you to maximise your Pilates' potential and achieve greater benefits from your Pilates' classes. It is also the ideal time to ask any questions you may have.
If a client feels that a class environment is not for them, I also offer 1-2-1 sessions. These are often as a referral from a Chiropractor or Physiotherapist, who have recommended me and who are keen for me to provide their patients with rehabilitation exercises based on their advice. Some clients will then eventually join a class, whereas other clients enjoy the benefits a 1-2-1 provides. I will often put together a video following the 1-2-1 as the client will have homework. By doing Pilates regularly, they will see improvements much quicker and my experience has shown that videos really do help clients understand the exercises as they don’t need to remember everything I have told them.
Pilates Refresher 1-2-1
A refresher 1-2-1 is suitable for any of my clients who have been with me for a while and would like to go through the basics again. It’s an opportunity to make sure that my client hasn’t got into any bad habits and for me to make sure that they are in the correct position and recruiting the right muscles when doing the exercises. This is so important, especially now we are online as it is easy to pick up bad habits, particularly if you have sustained an injury or you are coming back to Pilates, following a break. It is also an opportunity to ask any questions regarding Pilates and I have found these sessions invaluable and have seen an improvement in those clients who have had a refresher 1-2-1. It also allows me to check the camera positions and to make sure I can see the client perfectly when doing Pilates online.
