Find Your Pilates Path


Classical Pilates is traditionally taught in 1- on -1 sessions.   The focused attention and correction you get from a private session ensures proper form and alignment to help you reach your goals faster.   This model is for you if you have a busy schedule or prefer private instruction, manage chronic pain, or are pre-natal or postpartum.

This is a simple and open-ended way of learning Classical Pilates.   Your workout is completely dependent on your goals as expressed to your teacher.   Your schedule is made to fit into your life.   Many students in the Traditional model attain their goals after 6 to 9 months of regular private sessions, but results vary.    Private packages are sold in packages of 5 or 10 sessions expiring in 6 months after your first visit.


These time tested models make the Pilates School unique.   

The In-Person School Model combines group classes and private sessions to facilitate deep learning and understanding of Classical Pilates in a group environment. 

You will learn Classical Pilates for half the cost of the Traditional model ($395-$250/ month).   The trade off is your level of commitment.   You need to dedicate 2-3 hours of in-studio training sessions and 1 hour of at-home study time a week.   These programs are taught in seasonal semesters Spring, Summer,  and Fall.  Primarily in the Fall and Spring seasons.   Due to high demand we are limited to accepting 50 new students per semester.  For most the In-Person School model takes 3-4 semesters to complete.

The simplest way to understand how this model work is you are enrolling in Pilates University.  You will have a regular school training schedule of private sessions, classes, and supervised workout sessions.   You are guided through Pre-Pilates, Basic, low and high Intermediate Pilates exercises.

Once you are ready, you take and pass your “final comprehensive exams” to graduate.   All graduates have access to participate in more advanced programs like our Open Studio membership, learning the Advanced system, or becoming a Classical Pilates teacher.
