How Do I Get Started?

Tetbury Pilates operates a welcoming studio environment in which to practise pilates and hopes that the following requests will help the studio run efficiently for your comfort and ours.

 

If you would like to join one of our Mathwork, Barre, Yoga or TRX classes, then send us an email at info@tetburypilates.com. We can then check spaces in the class and book you on to attend.

 

If you would like to join a reformer/ mixed equipment class, then we ask that you attend a 1-2-1 session first to get you up to speed on the equipment before joining the course and go through the basics of the movements and exercises.

 

If you would like to have a 1-2-1 or Duet session, whether it is before joining a class or for ongoing 1-2-1’s, we ask that you contact us and together we will arrange a time to come in for a one hour session where we will take you through a postural analysis, the basic principles and teach you the basic movement patterns and exercises.

Arrival

If a session is being undertaken whilst you arrive please respect other clients and please come in quietly and move through to the lobby area. Here there is space to hang coats and shoes and a toilet.

When you have finished your workout please clean down the equipment you have been using, using the spray and flannels provided,  before moving through to collect your belongings.

What To Wear

Ensure appropriate clothing is worn during your sessions for your own comfort, those around you and the instructor. Fitted clothing that allows you to move with ease and safety is suitable especially when working on the equipment. Ideally have a layer to take off when you have warmed up.

Ideally no zips on clothing please – it scratches our equipment

Socks

Please bring with you a clean pair of socks to change into before exercising when using the Reformer equipment. This is for hygiene reasons when using the straps on the reformer. If you have socks with grips on the sole then these are beneficial  for many exercises.

Personal hygiene should be at a good level for both instructors and clients – this is to include feet!!
