Frequently Asked Questions
What will happen at my Introductory and Health Assessment Session?
Firstly, Judith will run through your Enrolment Form and if you have answered YES to any questions, time will be spent discussing any relevant medical issues.
Secondly, she will give you some information about the 8 principles of Pilates and how they will become part of not only your Pilates class but also how they will serve to help you in your functional life, ie at home, at work, at play etc.
Next, you will together look at how you hold your body and what you feel about your posture and how the Pilates Method will be able to help you.
Next she will take you through some basic building block exercises which will highlight the principles of Pilates already talked about.
This session is for you to get to know Judith and also to decide if Pilates is definitely for you. It also allows her to understand your body better prior to joining a class and if there are health issues that need to be monitored, she has all the details and can make sure that you are safe in your practice.
Do I have to have done Pilates before joining a class?
No, but before joining a class you will need to book your Introductory and Health Assessment Session. This takes place at the Studio, Pilates in the Loft in Chislehurst. After this session and if you are both happy for you to start in a class then that is the next step. Sometimes it may be advisable to do more than the Introductory session, and this is something that is talked about in your first session.
I'm not sure about exercising in a group class, can I continue with private sessions?
Of course, the Studio is designed to work with clients on a 1 to 1 basis. These sessions are arranged at a time to suit you.
