Getting Started with Pilates

Dear Ideal Client,

It’s been a few months since you started taking Pilates with me. You were a little nervous to start – you said you weren’t flexible enough, you felt a little heavier than was comfortable, and you have this niggling problem with your neck/shoulder/back. But you courageously started lessons, despite your trepidation. You were finally ready to take care of yourself and get strong.

You admitted that even in the first few class you had reservations about Pilates. You needed so much focus for the detailed movements that it was a brain workout too!

You began to enjoy moving and being in control of your body. Before you knew it, 1 month, 2 months went by and you excitedly tell me little strength improvement stories, like that time you moved a heavy piece of art that you move every year but this year it was so light! You could put your shoes on without falling over! You could sit on the floor to play with your kids – and get up again!

Nicole is knowledgeable, professional and supportive. I highly recommend her for beginners and experienced students of Pilates looking for thoughtful one on one instruction.

You say you’re sticking with it because you feel so good after each class. Energized. Strong. Every class goes by super-fast because of your dedicated focus and well, we laugh a lot together.

That niggling pain went away. When it comes back, you know precisely what movements (or lack thereof!) caused it, and what movements make you feel better.

This letter is a thank you. For taking that courageous first step. For trying something new, out of your comfort zone. I feel honoured you chose me as your instructor. Not only do you work hard to the best of your ability, you keep showing up, week after week. You are open to having fun with movement and learning to experience a connection between your mind and body.

Thank you so much for sharing your Pilates journey with me.

After just this one session, my confirmations were true – little things like over doing my range, curling my shoulders incorrectly, not positioning my legs, etc. were a few of the tips she was able to spot and correct with me!  THANK YOU!  I actually felt some of the ‘burn’ (so to speak) or where I had hoped my muscles were getting a workout and where I needed her help.
