Greetings fellow Pilates enthusiasts!
Foremost, I hope that you and your family are safe & healthy while weathering this unprecedented crisis. It has changed everything for the foreseeable future and we at Pilates Perfect Studio adapt and adjust, our sole focus on how to best serve you.
However, life of course has to be lived. I know, based on your calls and questions, that continued commitment to your health and wellness is especially now a priority. Now is not the time to become stationary, stress eat and drink, or ignore our exercise routines. So stay hydrated, get adequate sleep and keep moving! Pilates stimulates your immune system and the six principles of stretch, strength, control, focus, breath and flow will help you stay connected and grounded. It also noticeably reduces the toxins of anxiety.
Many of you have started booking times for continuing your private sessions virtually. I am also open to expanding the Studio time slots available to accommodate what are, I know, hectic schedules now. One of the unexpected upsides to remote sessions is that you can now include a spouse or friend, as a number of you have asked about this. I will be using Facetime & Skype but am exploring Zoom and other options to better serve you.
If you are still in the city and cautiously trying to maintain vestiges of your daily routines, I am still taking clients in the studio. I just want to make it really clear: we are an entirely private single-client studio and I literally am sanitizing all equipment and any touched surfaces after every client session.
The following should answer any questions you might have regarding your Pilates Perfect Studio virtual session.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
Actually, nothing (if that’s all you have!) However, a mat, towel, blanket, etc. would be most comfortable for your session. Also, a foam roller, mini weights, magic circle, or any other equipment you have can be incorporated.
WHICH ELECTRONIC DEVICE CAN I USE?
You can use any device that you feel comfortable with. Laptop, Cell phone or Desktop. A few tips on setting up your device: the angle of your device should be from above and at an angle. To get this angle you can use books, cans of tuna or any item that will allow your device to be set up and propped forward. If you are using a cell phone, the cell phone should be vertical.
WHERE DO I NEED TO BE FOR MY PILATES SESSION?
Your body should be squared off in a room that is large enough to give you full arm & leg extension. This will give me the very best way to see all of you and help you with your practice. I will say that some of you are very creative!
HOW LONG WILL MY SESSION BE?
The usual 55 minutes or 30 minutes depending on your session package. You will still receive session reminders for your appointments. The industry standard of 24-hour cancellation still applies.
