Expectations of Beginner Pilates Classes
Beginners Pilates classes and programs are a welcoming, supportive environment at our Westwood Pilates studio. Our approach embraces classical Pilates training and body control to encourage participants to understand better and accept their own unique way of being.
As you prepare for a beginners Pilates class, you can expect the Sheppard Method Pilates studio to have any mats and equipment you might need, but feel free to bring your own if you’d prefer.
We require socks. We offer socks with sticky bottoms which helps provide traction and greater safety. We do not require you to wear our specific socks, you may bring your own from home, but socks must be worn in the studio. Plan on wearing clothing that fits tight or snug, but allows you to move. Form fitting clothing helps your instructor guide and instruct you for proper positioning and, therefore, maximum effect.
Plan on tying up long hair and remove any loose accessories or jewelry.
Feel free to bring water to stay hydrated and refreshed! (we also have a h2o fountain).
Plan on arriving early. Arriving late should be avoided so as not to disturb a class that may already be underway. Staying focused, for you and other participants, is an important part of the Pilates experience.
