How it works
The original Pilates studio worked somewhat like the ultimate gym. You would begin with more personalised instruction and gradually start to take on more responsibility for your training. Teachers would be available to assist you in your practice and give you physical help in stretches and spots for stronger exercises. Proper Pilates' studio runs very similarly. We work to a system that offers you continued personal training, plus offers monitored workouts so you can train yourself under supervision, enabling you to develop a strong and personalised practice.
A lot of modern Pilates is taught in large groups with little attention to client need or control. Or it's expensive and therefore prohibits taking lessons multiple times per week, which is essential if you're really wanting to experience change. At PP we schedule and price our system in a way which helps you to make Pilates a regular part of your week, so that you can build great movement practice into your body.
Step One: Get in touch with us and then we'll chat on the phone or via email, make sure we seem like the right fit for you, and if so, we'll setup bookings for Step 2
Step Two: You'll complete 6 introductory, half-hour appointments within two weeks. This establishes consistent practice, the beginnings of Pilates fitness, and helps you feel safe and ready to navigate usage of the studio in a more independent way going forward
You can continue with Private lessons or have the option of shifting into our Open Haus program. Our unique system enables you to combine Private Lessons and monitored group workouts where you work through your own, specially tailored program, which we'll continue to grow as your strength and skill increase.
What is Open haus?
Open Haus sessions bring groups of clients together to workout under supervision, but in a self-directed practice, as was experienced in the original Pilates studio. These sessions are capped at six clients maximum, and a teacher is present to assist, push, pull, correct and help you deepen your training.
Open Haus sessions are not classes in the common sense. In these workouts every client is navigating their own regime based on their own program, designed to meet their needs, and that is continually sculpted during Private Lessons. Open Haus enables members to refine their practice, stay safe and correct under supervision, and meet the needs of their body and mind each time they enter the studio.
Our system also helps to get you into the studio 3-4 times per week, which echos the recommended Australian Exercise guidelines of achieving 2.5 to 5 hours of workout time per week, half of which should be resistance training (Pilates!).
