Studio & Private Pilates Sessions

INFORMATION TIMETABLE PRICES BOOKING

What is Studio Pilates? What is Private Pilates?

We teach Studio Pilates at our Grange Private Studio in EH9 AND Central Studio in EH1. They are equipped with  ‘Balanced Body’ Pilates apparatus shipped from California.

Joe Pilates invented pieces of large apparatus in conjunction with his exercise method. This was the ‘original’ way to do Pilates.

It adds a new dimension to matwork as the ‘machines’ help build muscle faster with resistance, stretch you and improve your proprioception. Exercising in the studio gives you the benefit of the equipment plus individual teacher attention. Everyone in the studio does privates, initially. You can choose to continue to with privates or do one-to-two studio Pilates. You will still be taught as an individual, but there will be one other person also being taught simultaneously in a 1-to-2 session. Our ‘studio’ teachers are available for both studio/apparatus Pilates and matwork privately.

Gill Bertram, our very experienced matwork teacher, offers private matclasses or a one-to-twos at Central Studio.  She teachers the matwork exercises and uses the small pieces of equipment we use in matwork, but she will not use the apparatus. She is also a Yoga teacher and can combine Pilates in Yoga in her private sessions or even do just Yoga with you.

How Sessions Work

studio1At both Bea’s Private Grange Studio EH9  and Central Studio, EH1, we offer individual or one-to-two sessions. Many people only do studio work, rather than Pilates matwork, as they prefer the individual attention and using the apparatus Joe Pilates invented. A lot of people with strong fitness programmes use it as part of their regime and others use it for rehabilitative work. Bea and Katy particularly work with the injured using Pilates as a therapeutic form of exercise, similar to physiotherapy except we spend a whole hour doing the exercises.

Everyone new to studio Pilates takes an initial private one-hour session with us, so we can discuss your medical history, do a postural assessment and talk about your needs and wants. You and your teacher will then choose whether you should continue with privates or whether one-to-two Pilates would be suitable for you.

Continuing to do one-to-one classes suits many people – it is Pilates ‘personal training’ or ‘body therapy’. One-to-one is always recommended for those with very specific needs or conditions, or if you want to learn fast and very accurately. If you want to attend 1:2 classes, it is a bit cheaper. You can decide to book in with a friend or the same person regularly, or you can book in for a one-to-two where another person can then choose to book into that same time-slot.

You do not have to stick to the same appointment-time each week, you can book an appointment any time within our schedule, subject to availability. Do be aware many people come and see us every week and keep that appointment booked months in advance. Wednesday evenings with Katy at the Grange Studio are only offered as one-to-two appointment slots, although these times can be used for the one-off ‘initial’ appointments too.

 Private Teachers

studio3The Studio teachers are Bea Alexander and Katy Bromberg at The Grange. At Central Studio we have Carolina Cardenas, Katia Calderola, Valentina Pintus and Wyn Pottratz.  Bea, trained in both matwork and studio equipment Pilates 14 years ago, with the Pilates Foundation UK. They provide the longest and most comprehensive studio equipment training in the UK. Katy is APPI trained, The Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute, who run a very well respected studio training course in London. Carolina did her mat and studio training in New York with Joe Pilates’ pupil, Romana Krysanowska. Valentina and Katia are Italian-trained studio and matwork teachers.  Wyn Pottratz trained with the excellent ‘Balanced Body’ organisation in the States as a studio and matwork teacher. There are very few studio-trained teachers in Scotland; most people are solely matwork trained. Gill Bertram is one of our most experienced matclass teachers and she holds private and 1:2 matclasses at Central Studio too.  These are included in the timetable below. Note these therefore can use small Pilates equipment but not the apparatus.
