What is the cost of private training?

Plus

Private training done in-person or over zoom is $75/one hour session. If you do two sessions in one week, the cost is $65/session.

What type of training is available?

Plus

Sabrina has a wide training background, but generally, after a discussion around the client's goals or challenges a basic hip/spine/shoulder joint assessment will take place to determine best and safest path forward. Usually training is a blend of traditional and contemporary Pilates exercises on the various equipment as well as specific joint training from Functional Range Systems.

How often should I come?

Plus

Usually clients will do either one or two sessions per week. There is also an option to come in as able for check-ins, reassessments, and updates to "homework" exercises or to check progression from regular work from the on-demand library. This can be a more budget friendly option if you are diligent about working on your own but still want occasional in-person guidance and assessments of your progress.

How is Pilates different from other exercise programs?

Plus

In a Pilates equipment class there is limitless possibility to accommodate each individual's strength levels and physical abilities. Pilates equipment is unique in that it utilizes various springs as resistance and allows for the body to work in numerous positions. Since each session is completely private, all equipment is available during every class.

How many classes a week should I take a class to see results?

Plus

That will depend on what you are seeking. If you are only using the membership classes, Sabrina recommends one to two mobility classes per week. You can also add one to two Pilates or Barre classes. The Self Care classes should be used "as needed" for body aches and/or stress.

If you are training in-person, that will be a discussion you will have with Sabrina to craft an effective plan that can adapt with your physical ability and goals.

Will I feel sore after classes?

Plus

Soreness is to be expected when you are training but shouldn't cause joint pain or exacerbation of old injuries. If you experience this, please discontinue whatever activity was the cause and seek the advice of a medical professional.

If I have limitations due to injury or other current or past body history, will you give alternative options during class?

Plus

Sabrina has taught a wide variety of clients ranging from a cancer survivor returning immediately after aggressive treatment to top level dancers and athletes and everyone in between, so it is very natural for her to often suggest modifications throughout classes. It will still be of utmost importance for you to be aware of your own body’s signals and to make best judgements for your personal health and safety as well as obtaining your physician’s clearance to do an at-home exercise program. We all have our individual histories and it is vital that we honor that so we can enjoy the long-lasting ability to pursue a life of health and fitness!

Can I do Pilates while pregnant?

I have back pain. Are these classes good for me?
