Private Pilates Lessons:
Pilates is truly done best one on one, where the instructor can closely watch the student’s movement and alignment. In teaching private Pilates lessons, I give full attention to my student. Because it’s one on one, I can focus entirely on how someone executes the exercises, so that I can assure he or she is moving effectively and safely.
I always advise those who are new to Pilates to start with at least a few private lessons. This will give beginners a foundation—a basic understanding of the Pilates principles, how to move through exercises, and the things on which to focus. Moreover, those who have injuries or special physical needs should do private lessons as opposed to group sessions.
Advanced students, and even professionally trained Pilates instructors, such as myself, benefit from private lessons from time to time as well. It is impossible to constantly see and be aware of our bodies through every movement and position, and therefore having a professional “eagle-eye” our Pilates practice is always advantageous.

Taking a group Pilates lesson as opposed to a private lesson is quite a different experience. As a student, you won’t get the one on one attention of a private class, but what you will gain is the collective, shared energy and experience that a group class gives, which can be so wonderful and special!
Although I am a certified Pilates instructor, I still attend group classes at times. I love my own self-practice—I can challenge myself, be creative and explore movements and sequences, and get into a very meditative state as I flow through my practice. Yet sometimes I need that energy and inspiration that only comes from doing Pilates alongside fellow instructors and students.
Ultimately, I think a combination of private and group Pilates classes is the ideal!
