What is a Pilates class like?
Our small group classes range between 3-5 students (3-8 people for Mat classes). Each session is a workout specifically designed by your instructor to safely challenge everyone in the group. Your instructor does not work out with you– instructors are there to teach you, using both verbal and tactile cueing and occasional demonstration. We know that the true benefits of the Pilates method happens when you commit to a regular Pilates routine. At Studio L2, our classes are a fun and affordable way to receive high quality instruction in a comfortable, non-intimidating small group setting.
For any Pilates session, it’s best to avoid anything loose or baggy. Instead, opt for form-hugging clothing like leggings and tank tops or T-shirts to avoid clothing getting caught in the Reformer. This style of attire also allows your instructor to easily check your form and alignment throughout the class. Also, avoid wearing any clothing with zippers, especially down your back.
As far as shoes go, don’t worry! We do Pilates either barefoot or in ToeSox (can be purchased at the Studio).
Because you’ll be engaging your core (“Powerhouse”) during your session, it’s best to not eat anything for at least a couple of hours prior to your workout.
Also, for your own safety, don’t chew gum during your session. But do bring water. Hydration is always important!
