What is the Difference Between ‘Core’ Training and Pilates?
‘Core’ training refers to isolating and contracting the body’s abdominal muscles. Pilates strengthens, stretches, and balances the entire body with all of the movement initiated and controlled from the development of the body’s center which is referred to as the “Powerhouse.”
The Powerhouse is made up of all of the abdominal, back, and gluteal muscles, as well as the pelvic muscles, thigh muscles, and diaphragm. Learning to engage these muscles properly through Pilates is the key to a strong core, a balanced musculature and a supple spine.
What Should I Wear?
We recommend that you wear comfortable, breathable clothing that will allow you to move freely and stretch, and allow your instructor to see how you are moving. Be sure that pants or shorts are well-fitting and not too loose so they don't get caught in the apparatus. No shoes are required - be prepared to work out in grip socks.
Pilates Plus reserves the right to cancel classes and/or sessions for any reason. All classes require two or more participants. If only one person has signed up for a class it will be cancelled. We will do our best to fit you in to another scheduled class.
All appointments and classes are subject to a 12-hour cancellation policy. If you fail to cancel prior to 12-hours in advance you will be charged for the full amount of the scheduled session.
If you have not shown up within 20 minutes of your scheduled session time, you will be charged the full session fee. The teacher is not responsible to stay past 20 minutes if you have not called to say that you are coming.
Teachers are subject to change due to scheduling or emergencies, and that if another teacher is made available, you are still responsible for keeping your appointment if it is within 12 hours of the session or class time. (If you have requested a certain teacher all efforts will be made to contact you, therefore please keep us updated on new phone numbers and contact info.)
