    100%. We all start somewhere and that is why Group Sessions are “ALL LEVELS” and created to offer a space for everyone to learn and perfect/ practice their current journey be new or seasoned. Let your skilled instructor have a heads up before you begin a group class, and he/she will be certain to keep an extra eye to assist along the way. We recommend taking a few privates before a group session to receive that dedicated time learning the fundamentals of Pilates.

  • WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE FOR CLASS?
    Booked sessions allow for early access to studio 15 minutes prior. This allows you to pick your reformer spot, freshen up and stretch out prior to class. Post sessions we ask you to be respectful/considerate for preparation of the next session and politely excuse yourself from the studio. Studio is booked privately for each group session so there is a time frame we stick to. Don’t worry, we will have plenty of events and workshops to hang out in the studio. We love you and will see you next class. <3 *Doors close at the beginning of scheduled class. No exceptions. See Attendance Policy*
