If I'm pregnant can I start Pilates?

Yes, with a doctor's confirmation. Private sessions are recommended.

I've had a baby in the last 3 months can I start Pilates?

Yes, with doctors permission and we suggest some privates sessions to begin with.

I've got a bad back can I do Pilates?

Yes, with the all clear from a clinical physician and any referral notes from a physio. Pilates is a great system to strengthen and stabilise any back issues.

I've had an operation/major illness/injury in the last 6 months can I do Pilates?

Yes, as long as you have been given the all clear by your doctor/physicians. We recommend private sessions to start so they can be specifically tailored to your needs and rehabilitation.

Absolutely love Pi studio. The team is fabulous and the atmosphere very relaxed and professional at the same time. I have had many injuries and every single teacher is so considerate and helpful. I can’t recommend this place enough.

Do you have to have a good base level of fitness and flexibility to get started?

No. Everyone is welcome.

Not only a friendly environment but at the age of 65 they are happy to focus on any issues I have while building up my strength for an active life.
— Deborah Shaw

How often should I do Pilates?

Joseph Pilates recommended 3 times a week. However, we recognise that we all have busy schedules and this is not easy and many undertake other activities as well. We recommend a minimum of one session a week to start and give Matwork as homework. However, if you can two to three times a week you will feel the benefits fast.

Can I book, amend and cancel sessions myself?

Yes, we love it if you are independent in managing your own schedule.

When you purchase your first package an account is created for you on our online MINDBODY system. You can then access this anytime through our website or via the MINDBODY online app on your phone to make any bookings or adjustments. If unsure please ask when you are next in the studio.

What should I wear for a session?

Comfy, stretchy close-fitting clothing. No trainers needed. Socks or barefoot.

Can I become a pilates teacher?

Yes, anyone can become a Pilates teacher with practice, passion and discipline. We offer two world renowned programmes here at Pi - Matwork and Full Studio training. 

It isn’t until now, out in the big wide world teaching, that I have realised just how lucky I was to find Pi Studios and the Pi teacher training course. I feel confident that I can provide any client with what they need from their Pilates session, including those with injuries and specialized needs. It’s these tools and skills that allow me to stand side by side and work alongside skilled Pilates instructors, physiotherapists, osteopaths and other professionals in the health and wellness industry.
— Rebecca Clarke

Where can the teacher training apprenticeship be undertaken?

At an agreed classical studio –  Please speak to Pi teacher trainers regarding this.

Do I have to have private sessions to start?

We always recommend you start with private sessions to get a strong foundation and see immediate results in your body. However, we appreciate this is not always an option, so you are more than welcome to join our intro level classes instead.

What does the Introductory session entail?

This is an opportunity to experience Pilates first hand with one of our expert teachers. It is not a full session, but you will have a strong flavour and a good idea of what to expect going forward. You will also have the opportunity to discuss all our purchasing options with Suzie and find the best package to suit you.

 I can’t find a session/class time that suits my requirements?

We are always open to suggestions for additional classes, class times and always happy to see if one of our teachers is available at a time you would like a session. The same for corporate classes/specialist sessions and workshops – please do get in touch.
