Frequently Asked Questions
I've never done pilates before. Where do I start?
We are proud of you for trying something new! The best place to start is with a private session. When working one-on-one with an instructor you will be well taken care of. Your instructor will be able to show you the ropes, and help create a Pilates routine that suits your anatomy. We have options available for new clients to try an introductory Pilates session. Choose either a prerequisite or intro private when booking. It is studio policy that you complete a minimum of one private session before attending any group sessions.
Do you offer Pilates education for students looking to become instructors?
Yes! Trainor Movement Co. is a STOTT PILATES Host Centre. We offer courses and workshops year round for new students looking to start their Pilates education, as well as existing certified instructors looking to fulfill CECs.
