All sessions are 55 minutes. Private sessions are advisable for individuals beginning Pilates training. Working one-on-one with Kristin, you will receive the full benefit of Pilates with faster results, as all sessions are customized to your needs. You will explore working on all of the apparatus, in addition to some mat work. Semi-private sessions (or otherwise known as ``duets``) are similar to privates, but are shared between two students of similar health and ability. Work is done on the apparatus, as well as the mat.
It is never too late to learn Pilates and reap its benefits – even while pregnant. Kristin’s expertise teaches the proper modifications and alternate exercises that safely challenge the ever-changing body during pregnancy. Pilates provides the body with the deep conditioning needed for the rigors of labor and a smooth delivery. Through Pilates-based exercises and stretches, you will tap into the power of your own breath and strength. A safe Pilates practice can help soften and open the body and mind to facilitate the natural birth process.
