How to Make a Pilates Studio at Home

It’s not always easy to make it to the Pilates studio for your classes. Sometimes life gets in the way and you don’t have time to take out of your day. That’s why it’s a great idea to have an at-home Pilates studio for you to get some practice in on those days you can’t make it. Today, Sheppard Method Pilates explains how to make an effective studio that you can use at home.

Pick the Right Room

The first thing you should do is pick a space. You want to pick a room that is well lit and comfortable to do your exercises in. It’s not recommended to have your exercise area somewhere like the garage. If the area you set your Pilates studio up in is uncomfortable, you won’t be motivated to use it. A bright, airy room is preferable and will make you happy to use your Pilates space.

Make Sure the Room is Big Enough

To create a comprehensive at-home Pilates studio, you’ll need room to perform your exercises, and room for a reformer. A reformer isn’t always necessary if you only plan on doing a session here or there, but if you plan on using the room for practice often, you should definitely get a reformer. Also, if the room is too cramped, you won’t be able to get the full benefits of your workouts. Take measurements of the room to make sure you’ll have enough space to fit everything you need.

Personalize it and Make it Your Own

Since it’s your private Pilates studio, make sure you personalize it! Get creative with colors, decorations, and anything else that makes you more comfortable and more motivated. By making it your own, you’ll feel more connected to the space and want to use it more. Remember, the whole point of having your own Pilates studio is to make up for those days you can’t make it to classes, so motivation is key!
