Each person is unique, with different body structure, movement patterns, and issues that can benefit greatly from individual attention. A private session is your opportunity to give yourself exactly what you need, in a session tailored for your own abilities, needs, and goals. Whether you are a beginner who wishes to prepare for Reformer classes, or a long-time student, private sessions focus on the appropriate alignments, corrections, challenges, and adaptations to your specific needs.
"I loved getting the extra special private Pilates lesson — you are such a good teacher, your studio is beautiful, and you have inspired me to get healthier!!!!!!" — Kathleen D. PhD
Working with the Whole Person
We work with the whole person: body, mind, and inner self. Movement is fundamental to life. People of all ages and body types can benefit from greater ease of movement, flexibility, and core strength.
"Some of the movements in these sessions feel incredibly subtle, and when we're done I feel so fine-tuned... I'm thrilled to start feeling this good!!!" — Sarah C.
Through awareness you discover habitual movement patterns that may be the root cause of joint pain, weakness, or stiffness. You can receive private instruction in Pilates and Movement Analysis with Lucille Dyer, a Certified Pilates Instructor, Bartenieff Fundamentals Practitioner, and Laban Movement Analyst with advanced degrees in theatre and dance. Lucille offers a uniquely integrated approach to meet your individual needs. You can develop a clearer awareness of what is moving and how you are moving. We focus on correct alignment and sequencing of muscles, and re-patterning habitual movements into ways of moving that are more comfortable, more effective, and more expressive of who you truly are.
To get started in your Pilates program: Schedule a free brief consultation to see the studio and discover the plan that will best fit your needs. We offer:
- A 3-Session Introductory package to prepare you for Reformer classes ($45/ Session) Please note: not all students are ready for classes after 3 sessions, and may need to schedule additional private sessions prior to joining a class. These sessions prepare students for classes which are designed for students without chronic bone, joint or health issues that would limit use of the whole body during exercise.
- Introductory 5-Step Full Session Package: For first timers, this is the best way to experience Pilates! Your teacher takes you step-by-step through all of the Level 1 Pilates exercises including the Mat, Cadillac, and Reformer, and includes a full "Up to Speed" session, giving you an idea of what you'll experience in a Classical Pilates Reformer class in terms of the transitions and tempo... and it feels great! ($44/ Session)
- Specially designed private sessions: For elite athletes, students with chronic bone, joint, or health issues, and people with specific instructions from their primary health care provider and/or physical therapist, private sessions are available starting at $75/ session for Movement Analysis, and $60 / session for Pilates Cadillac Room sessions.
