Where do I start?
You have been told you need Pilates in your life, so how do you get started. Email Skye and tell her a little about yourself and why you want to start. She will suggest the best course of action to suit your needs and goals. You may require a private session, or book straight into a class. She will help you to understand the fundamentals of posture, alignment and correct core activation. If its cardio, strength and sculpting the body of a dancer you are after, then go ahead and join into a Fusion or Dance class. And if time is a problem, or you have little ones at home, jump onto a Zoom class.
