Medical Clearance
Please note: as with all exercise programs doctor’s clearance is advised.

For your safety, where rehabilitation from injury is required, your medical practitioner should provide us with a written permission, report and recommendations. We will be happy to keep in touch with your medical team for any questions or updates regarding your condition.

We have a great respect for your health and for the heritage of Joseph Pilates and we hope you will share it with us. Therefore we advise all beginners to complete a minimum of 4 private sessions before joining a Pilates group class. Pilates has to be taught step-by-step. Not all exercises are suitable for every person. Often appropriate modifications are required. This will help us to become aware of your strengths and limitations in order to achieve your goals safely and effectively.
