Small Pilates classes (up to 8 students) in Annette’s beautiful home studio in a rural location only 3 km from Penguin. Enjoy the peace of yoga with a backdrop of a forest and Bass Strait and the sound of bush birds. You will complete a Client Information sheet and enjoy a Pilates practice tailored to your individual needs. Pilates consists of centring, learning how to engage specific core and stabilising muscles and follows specific practices for strength, stability, mobility and balance. To ensure hygiene please bring your own mat. Cushions and straps and some mats are provided.
Private sessions help you to have a personally focussed and tailor-made yoga or Pilates practice suited to your specialised needs. You will complete a Client Information Form which will detail your medical history as well as your aims and needs. The first session usually lasts an hour and a quarter, then every session after that lasts an hour. You will be given a personalised practice perhaps with recordings on your phone.
Some people like to have a series of private sessions to really hone their practices and skills, and some like to have a session every few weeks to monitor their improvements of required changes. Some people have private sessions in order to improve how they go about the practices in their weekly class.
For many, the aim is therapeutic so that you can have a home-practice that you can continue to do to improve your health in whichever way is suitable for you. For example, Yoga Therapy is usually for those with a compromised health condition who really want a home-practice to help their physical and mental/emotional response to their condition. The practice may be a combination or any one of physical, meditative, breathing or relaxation practices.
The therapeutic practice for Pilates will be more physical but can include a relaxation if you so desire.
As a highly experienced yoga therapist, I will take great care to really hone into your needs and create a well-balanced practice. Please contact me by phone or email if you would like a private session and we shall work from there.
