The Starting balance (test)
Tailored to your needs.
For anyone wishing to undertake Pilates in a private, semi-private session or in small groups on the ground or on machine, we strongly advise you to start with a "Discovery Offer" which includes a complete postural assessment before starting your training plan. The discovery offer consists of a first consultation with your teacher with a postural assessment and an assessment of the specific needs taking into account all your specificities and your requirements, followed by two private sessions with your customized training plan. These three meetings will allow your teacher to compose a tailor-made approach that meets all your expectations. Our "Discovery Offer" is the most beneficial and personalized way to start your Pilates short term training in, initially, with no further commitment. Following these three courses you will know without hesitation if our approach to the body is the right one for you!
MATWORK course (ground)
A culmination of the method and true practice
Pilates Matwork courses are based on a series of ground movements. From basic to advanced techniques, by integrating small objects (circle, roller, balloon or elastic) diversity is great.
Matwork Ground courses are taught in small groups, limited to 6 to 8 people per class to ensure the effectiveness of lessons on the ground. It is important to note that ground courses (Matwork) are a greater challenge to start learning the method than the courses on machines. During the ground lessons you do not have any assistance of the machines which makes the work of mobility and the feeling of the deep chains more complex than during training on the machines, the latter unconsciously stimulating your deep chains. Joseph Pilates had succeeded his method by ground work which represents only the 10% of the entire working method. The 90% of the learning of the body is done on devices in conjunction with the work on the ground.
Course on MACHINE
Maximum sensation and palpable results thanks to the devices
Often, the first approach to the Pilates method for more than 80% of people is through Matting on the floor (Matwork). Most pupils / clients do not realize that method-specific devices were created by the founder Joseph Pilates in the 1920s before the Contrology Pilates on the Ground came into existence in 1945.
Pilates had been created with the aim of better favoring the demands of the deep muscles and of being able to move more freely and especially more efficiently from the inside, benefiting from the support of the springs on the machines.
These are extraordinary tools for the method because they allow a faster learning of the Pilates method, more efficient courses, more varied training and fully adapted to the needs of the students. But the most important of all these benefits is the fact that these devices provide you with deep sensations both physically and mentally regardless of your starting constraints! On the devices there is always a way to fit and do just for your body for a guaranteed progression.
A session is made up of complete movements from the original repertoire combining strengthening, articular mobilization, postural improvement, stretching, and all this by combining the head with the body for a healthy mind in an efficient and effective body.
You have the possibility of private lessons or semi-private courses in duo and trio (2 or 3 people). Our studio is fully equipped with all the devices created by Joseph Pilates: Reformer, Cadillac, Tower, Barrel, Spine corrector, Ped-o-Pull and Wunda Chair.
