The Pilates Advantage is certified to teach this exercise program
Our experienced instructors are committed to providing the best instruction in Classical and Contemporary Pilates as well as work with individuals with specific rehabilitation needs.
Quality instruction is important to us. Our student to teacher ratio is 4:1 for equipment classes and 6:1 for mat classes. Pilates isn't the lowest-cost fitness program out there, but it's worth every penny. Don't choose a facility by finding the one that provides the cheapest sessions in the area, but make sure you're realistic in determining what you will learn in a class that has a large class size. A good Pilates studio limits class size to enable instructors to spend adequate amounts of time with everyone. Equipment classes should be made up of no more than 6 students (with an experienced instructor.) Larger classes limit the amount of individual attention you receive-- and the quality of your workout.
Pilates devised many highly specialized pieces of equipment. It is important to have access to the full complement of this equipment in order to achieve the balanced workout, which is the hallmark of the original Pilates Method. Pilates should be taught by a comprehensively trained instructor with many hours of training and experience who understands the essence of the work and is not just showing you exercises. Not all Pilates Teacher Training Programs are created equal.
