Questions & Answers
All of our workouts are designed to be used without equipment. However, certain workouts or exercises can be intensified by using equipment. But of course, if you don’t want to use equipment, that’s also fine.
1kg or 1.5kg dumbbells (about 2-3 lbs), a loop band & yoga block. Ankle weights are optional in some sessions as well. For our Barre classes, we recommend using a sturdy stool, chair, table, or whatever else you can find, that hits at about elbow height.
We offer pre and postnatal classes designed specifically for new moms and moms to be. Karen has also provided tips on how to alter other classes to fit your needs both on our website and during the workouts themselves.

Joseph Pilates has a famous quote: “In 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 you will see the difference, and in 30 you’ll have a whole new body.” Commit to 30 sessions, which broken down, will be about three times a week over three months.
The precision in how you work is the number one difference in Pilates. When you attend an in-studio or at-home class, I do not want you to just run through the motions creating the picture of the exercise, in order to move from your deep stabilizing muscles first thus supporting the bones and joints correctly, creating new muscular patterns, not just relying on your existing patterns. Precision is key in assisting in making these connections within the body.
