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.
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 session?
Joseph Pilates developed a full suite of Pilates apparatuses — reformer, cadillac, chair, barrels, arcs and more! The apparatuses 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 and moving your body on these marvelous inventions. They will help you reform your body!
All new clients must complete two forms prior to their first session: a general health history form and participation waiver. I look forward to getting to know you and discussing your wellness goals, general health and fitness history, as well as precautions and contraindications for movement.
Each session is one hour and conducted one-on-one (you have Debora's undivided attention!). Each session strives to be a full body experience. Many clients say, "Wow - I didn't know that muscle existed!"
Debora is available to teach at a few locations near downtown Brooklyn.
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.
