Top Questions for New Students
I've never done pilates before. Is there an Intro class or should I start with a private session?
Ok, I am going to sign up for my first session! I'm excited but not sure how to register for class. Can I just pay when I get there?
At the top of this webpage there is a button that says “book a class” that will take you to my Mindbody page. There, you can create a profile and securely pay for your sessions under the retail tab. If you have any trouble paying or signing up for class please do no hesitate to email us at info@ and I will walk you through it. If for some reason you do not have access to our site you can pay in person, just be aware that we cannot hold session spots for you. If you show up and the hour is booked you may be turned away if you didn’t pre-register.
Ok I'm signed up on LIT. What should I wear to class and what do I bring with me to the studio?
We sell sticky socks at the studio for $15. Make sure to tell Kim your shoe size and she can help you pick out a sock that will fit you. You don’t need to bring water with you but if you have a water bottle you can fill it up for free at the studio- I offer complimentary filtered water.
How do I get there?
To enter the building, please ring.
Do you have lockers and showers?
I am not going to make my appointment. Can I reschedule?
Where are you located?

Wear comfortable clothes that you can easily move in, much like you would for a yoga class, the gym or a backyard football.
Do not wear jewelry or strong perfumes.
Your credit card is on file, so no need to bring your wallet, unless you prefer not to make your payment online and/or would like to purchase any LIT. merchandise, Pilates gear or Remedy Bar elixirs. Please note that no sessions are confirmed if you’re not prepaid.
Why is Pilates so darn expensive?
The art of REAL Pilates is very disciplined, guarantees speedy results and the instructors have very in-depth training. The art & theory behind the practice, which is considered the ‘Crème de la crème’ throughout the fitness field, because the trainers don’t take you through motions, they know the actual anatomy of the motion, including the muscles recruited, where the muscle originates, and where it inserts. My first client, for example, a medical school student, was highly impressed with my level of pilates experience...precisely because of the extensive training. Personally, it took me, over 2 years of intensive training to complete all my interning, anatomy classes, workshops, supervised training, student teaching, etc.- which was well over 500 hours combined. Also the highly trained instructors are few and far between, so large fitness studios charge less for mat classes because instructors are easy to find whereas properly trained reformer instructors are not. As a matter of fact, when I am at a fitness studio observing other trainers work with clients, I cringe. The training I personally underwent should be mandatory for every trainer in the field, regardless of their interest in Pilates. Which is why I also offer various ‘postural analysis’ type workshops for certified trainers. Also, reformers and other Pilates equipment are very expensive for gym/studios, and take up valuable real estate on the fitness floor.
