Initial Session

New Students

For new students, we recommend scheduling an Initial Session for assessment, guidance and learning. Our skilled instructors will address your goals and needs while introducing you to the exercise techniques we offer. You’ll get a good sense of the work and have a clear direction for moving forward.

  • Work one-on-one with an expert instructor.
  • Develop a personalized program that focuses on your specific goals and needs.
  • Address imbalances to create more freedom of movement.
  • Create a plan for your exercise and conditioning goals to carry into the rest of your daily activities.
  • Enhance your current workout regimen.
  • Learn to get the most out of group sessions and mat classes.

The cost of an Initial Session is equivalent to a single private session. We can apply this payment toward your purchase of a combo Welcome Package or pass of private sessions. To get started with an Initial Session, please call the studio at (650) 967-6414.

Private and Group Sessions

Owen teaching Pilates workshopAfter you've taken some privates, you can continue with private instruction and/or move into an ongoing group with instructor approval. Because we organize groups based on students' compatible level of understanding and fitness, we'd assess the next best step after you've been coming in a few times.
