What to look for in a Pilates Class?
As a new client you should be asked to complete a questionnaire regarding health, well-being and injury;
Classes with 12 or fewer participants are more appropriate for beginners;
The teacher should show individual attention, expect to be individually helped or corrected;
The teacher should constantly be observing and communicating with both the group and individual clients;
Classes are better when they run on a course basis to allow teachers to get to know clients individually and prescribe specific exercises or adaptations;
Classes should use a variety of teaching aids, full length mats, blocks, bands and various support methods for individual use. Expect to see pillows, lumbar rolls and other equipment;
Teachers should be able to offer adaptations and should have equipment such as blocks and supports to enable them to do so.
