Train Classical Pilates in a Home Session
Private sessions in Matwork or Apparatus comfortably in your home

Your home session in Matwork or Apparatus will be tailored to your fitness level by a professional Pilates instructor. Every session is unique and the instructor choose Apparatus (Reformer, Cadillac, Tower, Chairs, Barrels etc.) and props (Magic Circle, Hand Weights, Foam Roller, Thera-Band etc.) after your needs. Increase your strength and movement quality even if you are unable to visit our studios. Home sessions are a great way to learn Pilates and to achieve your goals comfortably in your home.

Benefits of Home Session
  • Perfect for Everybody regardless of your fitness level, age, body type, or pre-existing injuries. That’s because Classical Pilates consists of over 600 exercises all of which have modifications and variations. The exercises can be tailored for beginners, professional athletes or anyone in between!
  • It’s a Full Body Workout so even though Pilates focuses on core strength, it also develops strength and flexibility in the extremities. Compared to many other activities that isolate the muscles of the body, Pilates is an extremely efficient method of exercise because it works the body as a whole.
  • Improves Mind-Body Awareness by bringing attention to your posture and which muscles you are engaging at any given moment. This mind-body connection is important in everyday movement as well as in your other physical activities.
  • Increases Flexibility by contracting certain muscles, while finding length through other muscles. Many exercises work on increasing range of motion through a joint or focus on building flexibility through muscles.
  • Improves Posture by your increasing your understanding of correct body alignment and increasing core strength. Good posture is a reflection of good alignment supported by a strong core.
  • Improves athletic performance for a wide range of activities including golf, running, cycling, skiing, tennis, dance and more! A stronger core means more power from your center when rotating in racquet and club sports. Expect better posture, coordination, control and flexibility for all athletes.
  • Risk of injury is reduced by creating a more balanced body and strengthening underutilized muscles. Bad backs improve by building support and stability in the deep abdominals and muscles that support the spine.
  • Improves balance and joint health which is particularly important for older adults. Classical Pilates also improves circulation, overall health and well-being.

I've never done Pilates before, when will I see results?

Joe Pilates always said, “In 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 you will see the difference, and in 30 you will have a whole new body”

Can I do this?

Yes, provided you can stand, sit and lie on the floor, you can train classes. If you have been recommended by a physiotherapist, doctor or have a known injury, we recommend at least one private session first. During a private session together with a professional instructor, you discuss your individual goals and specific challenges. The instructor observes how you move and together you step-by-step review how to modify specific exercises during a class so that you feel confident and at the same time get a safe and effective workout.

I have a disability, can I train Pilates?

It depends on your disability. We currently have clients with prosthetics who train, but we are unfortunately not able to train people who have mobility, hearing or visual impairments for safety reasons. This is something we continuously evaluate and hope to be able to offer in the future as Pilates is really good for everyone. If you are uncertain, please contact us to consult.

How often should I exercise?

To promote health, reduce the risk of chronic diseases, prevent premature death and to maintain or improve physical capacity such as fitness and strength the following is recommended for all adults from 18 years and up:

  1. Be physically active in total at least 150 minutes a week. The intensity should be at least moderate. At high intensity recommended at least 75 minutes per week. The activity should be spread over at least three of days of the week. Moderate and high intensity can also be combined. More physical activity provides additional health effects.
  2. Muscle strengthening physical activity should be performed at least twice a week for the majority of the body’s large muscle groups.
  3. The elderly (defined here as adults over the age of 65) should also practice balance.

Joseph Pilates was ahead of his time and he recommended exercising 3 times a week. We believe you will see development with at least one private session or class per week as a complement to other physical activity to stretch and strengthen your entire body. If you can exercise two to three times a week, you will feel results much faster.

Pilates can be experiences as slow to high intensity depending on the your fitness level and experience from Pilates. All types of sessions and classes in Classical Pilates trains the whole body. Our Vintage classes (for 60+ and people recovering from illness) are slow to medium intensity with additional exercises to improve balance.

How late can I book / reschedule?

You can book a session up until 6 hours before your session start.
You can cancel your session up until 12 hours before your session start.

Can I change a Studio Session to Remote Session?

Yes, you can. Reply to the booking confirmation with a request to change to a remote session and the Instructor will respond to you. Once a booking has been changed to a Remote Session, you will receive a new booking confirmation.
