About our Studio

What we offer

Every Capital Pilates client will receive an individual program which includes floor exercises for home. Programs are updated on request.  A re-assessment session is required to facilitate this as a risk mitigation strategy for the business enabling us to cater for client progression and changing circumstances. A private session is then required to be taught the new program.

The studio is open Monday  to Saturday. We have time slots available to cater for clients wanting sessions before, after work or during the day. Two or three sessions per week will give clients the best chance of achieving their goals.

(Our booking system allows for regular weekly time slots but also provides flexibility to cater for changes in client  commitments from week to week.)

COVID-19 Regulations require clients to have  a regular weekly booking (same day/time each week)

Each session lasts for one hour and is carried out in a semi-private small group environment. Regular private or duet sessions are also available.

How to get started

Clients must firstly attend two private sessions. The first session is an Initial Assessment which includes gathering client medical history, performing a movement analysis and postural assessment and discussing personal needs and goals.

During the second session, the Program Session, clients are introduced to the underpinning techniques as well as the exercises which form part of their Pilates Program.

Following the two private sessions, options are available for either individual private sessions or semi-private group sessions.
