Any Questions?

Here's What We Are Often Asked

About the Course
How many students are in the class?

Typically there are only 12 students on the course – all Beginners like you.  This ensures you are safe at all times and we can help everyone in the room.

Do I need to bring anything?
  1. A full body length mat – yoga type is good
  2. A  bath-towel to roll up as a cushion under your head

You can find out more about choosing the right equipment in the Pilates4life KitBag

What should I wear?

Loose, comfortable clothing – track suit type is great.  No special shoes as we work barefoot or in socks.

Do you sell the mats?

We work with Amazon to offer a range of mats. Check the Pilates4Life KitBag for tips on choosing the right one for you.

Do you offer Pay As You Go?

Pilates4life classes are organised into 6 week blocks, payable in advance. This:

 

  •  guarantees your place in class each week
  •  keeps Pilates4life costs down …
  •  … and therefore costs to members
  •  means you have a full hour of instruction – no time spent on administration

Can I do a taster class?

You are very welcome to watch a session to see what Pilates actually involves, but it’s not a good idea to join in. Half way up a mountain is not the place to learn to ski.

What if I can't make all the classes?

Each session of the course covers different material, so if you miss a class you will miss out.

If you miss 1 class you can probably catch up, but if you miss 2 classes you are unlikely to graduate to Level 1 as you won’t have covered enough of the fundamentals to be safe.

The Right Course for Me?
I am really fit, 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 are improved and your chances of injury reduced.

I am pregnant, can I still do the course?

Yes, provided you are less than 8 weeks (first pregnancy), or less than 6 weeks (subsequent pregnancies) at the time the course starts. You can find out more in our Pilates 4 Pregnancy article with more information on Pilates for mums-to-be.

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 have done Pilates from DVDs so can I start at Level 1?

An essential part of the Beginner’s Course is having an expert to check and correct your alignment and core connection. You will also learn which exercises are best for you and more about your strengths and weaknesses.

I am 73, am I too old?

No! You are still a youngster! Some members would “admit” to being 70+ and there are one or two who have met the four score target plus 10! Amazing!

I have problems kneeling - can I still do the course?

In Pilates, an experienced instructor can adapt ANY Movement to accommodate mobility restrictions. However, it is difficult to teach these adaptations at the same time as teaching a group of Beginners. If in doubt, please Contact Us.
