Getting Started with Private Sessions
Change Your Body With Private Pilates Lessons
It’s all about YOU!
Whether you’re starting your Pilates practice to build core strength and stability, to rehab an injury or recover from surgery, or to improve your athletic performance, Pilates private sessions are a great way to start. At Studio Blue, your private Pilates lessons are held in an intimate, comfortable setting. You won’t be in a big room filled with other clients and their trainers. It’s just you and your Pilates instructor working together to meet your goals in a fully private setting.
What should you expect from a private Pilates session?
Expect to communicate, listen, get corrections, and receive feedback from your trainer and expect to move from the very start! You’ll perform the order of exercises while your trainer cues you toward correct form, breath, and alignment. Every body is unique. Private sessions allow instructors to focus on your specific goals and your body’s needs and abilities. In a private session, your instructor may use a variety of Pilates apparatus including reformer, cadillac, chair, barrels, mat, TRX, etc., to provide the most appropriate exercises for your body and goals.
Duet Privates (semi-private sessions for you and spouse or a friend) are also available and can be an ideal (and cost effective) way for two to work out together who are of similar physical ability and want more personal attention than in a group class.
Private lessons are for you if:
- You suffer from chronic pain and have tried other methods such as physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, acupuncture, surgery or other medical treatments to alleviate the pain and are not seeing improvement.
- You want to intensify your mat workouts.
- You prefer one on one coaching.
- You want to try the Pilates machines.
- You’re recovering from an injury or surgery.
- You have specialized needs that cannot be addressed in a group class setting.
Remember, it’s all about you! We’ll tailor a Pilates workout for your exact needs!
This isn’t a “one size fits all” Pilates lesson. Each session, we’ll customize an equipment workout based on your exact needs. You may start your workout on the Cadillac, move to the Pilates reformer and end your session on the mat. Every session will be different, informative and intense (and fun, too!)

Your medical insurance may cover your private Pilates sessions!
While we do not file medical insurance claims, we can provide your insurance company with your progress notes, session records and billing records if Pilates is covered. If you are being referred to Pilates from your physicial or physical therapist, make sure to call your insurance provider to see if you are eligible for reimbursement. Many employer FSA’s (Flexible Spending Accounts) can also be used to pay for your Pilates sessions, so check with your Human Resource department as well.
Late Cancel/No Show Policy
Our early cancellation policy for private sessions is at least 24 hours prior to your appointment time. After that, you will be considered a “late cancel” and subject to the full session fee. If you “no show” your appointment you will also be subject to the full session fee.
We look forward to meeting you and welcome to our Studio Blue family!
