Is pilates safe for me?
Yes; Pilates movements can be modified to be safe for you! If you have any pre-existing conditions that you feel may restrict your movement, you may need to obtain consent from your physician. All clients start with an evaluation to help determine the appropriate program.
how many sessions do you recommend i do?
Joseph Pilates has said, "In 10 session you'll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you'll see the difference, and in 30 sessions you'll have a whole new body." Liturgy Pilates agrees! Practicing Pilates at least twice each week would be a great way to start moving towards that new body! As with many activities, the more consistent the practice, then the more efficient movements will be in your body. Soon, you will not want to miss a day of Pilates.
what can i expect during a reformer session?
Joseph Pilates developed a full suite of Pilates apparatuses - one of which is the reformer. The reformer can be used in various positions (supine, standing, kneeling, etc). It may look intimidating at first, but rest assured that you will come to enjoy exercising on this marvelous invention. This apparatus lives up to its name: it will reform your body.
All new clients will have an evaluation as part of their first session. This is where we discuss your general health and fitness history, precautions and contraindications, and wellness goals.
Each reformer session is one hour and conducted one-on-one (you have Debora's undivided attention!) in the comfort of a home studio with lots of natural light. Each session strives to be a full body experience. Many clients say, "Wow - I didn't know that muscle existed!"
WHAT DO I WEAR?
In general, clients are recommended to wear comfortable workout clothes. Many clients prefer leggings or a combination of athletic shorts along with compression shorts. For your safety as well as the integrity of the apparatus, please make sure that clothing does not contain any zippers, buttons, or any protruding objects. If you choose to wear socks, please make sure that they have grips on the bottom.
