Getting Started

One to One Assessment or Straight to Class

A one to one assessment is a great way to get started with Pilates if you have never done it before. During the assessment, I will:

  • Assess your current fitness level and work with you to identify any areas of weakness or tightness.

  • Create a personalised program to address your individual needs.

  • Teach you the correct technique for each exercise.

  • Offer support and guidance as you learn the Pilates method.

If you have done Pilates before and have had a break, or you want to take it up a level, you can start straight into the class. Please contact me for a start date.

What To Wear and Bring

I recommend wearing comfortable, breathable clothing that is not too baggy, such as leggings or shorts and a t-shirt or vest top. You may also wish to bring a light sweater or long-sleeved shirt for cool-down exercises. Wear lightweight trainers for the warm up, then choose grip socks or barefoot for the rest of the session.

I suggest bringing  a water bottle to your session.


You will also need to bring a mat and any pilates equipment you have, however I can lend you these at first.

Pilates Equipment

  • Soft pilates ball – 18cm (7inch)

  • Thin Pilates cushion 2.5cm (1 inch)

  • Thick Pilates cushion 5cm (2 inch)

  • Mat – thick but not stretchy. I stock Physical company Pilates mats.

  • Exercise bands – they come in various strengths, I can advise

  • Pilates hard block - 30x20x5cm

  • Prickle stimulating balls pair – the correct ones only come from Physical Company, so I stock these. (not the hard trigger point balls)
