What do I need to wear?
I have done Pilates before from DVD's so is this Course for me?
An essential part of the Beginner’s Course is having an expert to check and correct your alignment and help you work safely and effectively. You will also learn which exercises are best for you and more about your strengths and weaknesses.
I have done Yoga so do I need to do this Course?
Pilates and Yoga are fundamentally different disciplines (although some exercises do look similar). If you are new to Pilates the best advice is to learn it properly – regardless of your previous Yoga experience.
I am really fit so do I need to do the Beginner's Course?
Pilates is quite unlike any other exercise regime and it is vital that you learn the Method before attempting the movements themselves. Once learned, you will find that your training and sports performance is improved and your chances of injury reduced.
