Each month your teacher will prepare a new custom-tailored syllabus for your month of lessons. If you have a specific goal for the month (preparation for a skiing trip, marathon, golf tournament, tennis match etc) or general goal (desire to improve posture, balance, stamina, coordination etc.) please let your teacher know when scheduling your lessons so that she may take that into consideration when planning your syllabus.
By making a commitment to your teacher with your schedule one month at a time, she can provide you with lessons that have distinct themes and well thought out endings that will leave you with a better understanding of how to incorporate Pilates into every minute of your day. When Pilates is done correctly with skilled instruction and original equipment, it becomes an investment that enhances your life.
Please try to be consistent with your practice so that you can progress. It is strongly recommended that you supplement your training in the studio with your own Pilates practice at home. Your teacher has a Pilates Workbook which presents a general outline of many of the exercise routines you will encounter in your Pilates lessons and a Pre-Pilates Book which contains individual exercises you can do as homework. Please do not do any exercise on your own if you have not already worked on it with your teacher. Taking an active part in your Pilates education is a wonderful way to make the most of your investment in your health and well-being.
