What is Pilates One 2 One?
After a thorough consultation your instructor will take you through a series of Pilates exercises to asses bodily strengths and weaknesses, taking into account a pupil’s fitness goals which can be anything from being pain-free to a complete core-strength and flexibility programme.
Your instructor will then devise and develop a unique series of Pilates exercises which can be performed alone at home; introduced into an ongoing fitness goal or as an ongoing One 2 One with your instructor.
Time and finances are always taken into consideration as Pilates should be available to everyone.
What can it be used for?
