What to Expect
Whether you have never stepped into a Pilates studio before, of if you have been taking classes for years, you can expect to spend your first session getting to know Lucy Garcia - and getting to know yourself. The way you move. The way you sit. The way you engage your core.
Before recommending a program to you, Lucy takes the time to understand your goals and your habits, your strengths and your weaknesses. She suggests that you take at least one or two private sessions so that you feel entirely confident handling the equipment in a group setting.
Her initial sessions will emphasis proper form and alignment. She will assess your level of fitness, evaluate your posture, review your strengths and weaknesses, and review your goals. She will show you what it means to articulate your spine, use the reformer carriage and activate your muscles. These are among the basic principles of Stott Pilates®.
You may feel sore after your first session. Over time, you will notice that your strength and flexibility is improved as well as your balance and range of motion.
