Getting Started

Everyone coming into the studio that is interested in our classes needs to start with introductory private sessions, regardless of previous Pilates experience. These sessions allow us to get to know you better, thereby giving us valuable information so that we may recommend the best program to suit your needs.   The introductory session options are as follows:

  • Two Initial Private Sessions.  For those interested in our Pilates equipment or mat classes, as well as our Biocored classes.  These initial sessions introduce you to the fundamental principles of Pilates, our teaching style at the studio, and include an assessment to provide us with vital information so that we may recommend the best protocol for you body.  Since these sessions are a requirement before joining classes, the cost is discounted from our traditional private hourly fees.  Cost is $100 for both sessions.  The sessions are each one hour in length.

  • Post Rehabilitation/Corrective Exercise Sessions.  These sessions:  1.  are for those currently undergoing or immediately following treatment for a health condition or injury as prescribed by a physician, physical therapist, chiropractor or other medical professional or  2.  for those dealing with chronic health conditions and/or alignment challenges.  For more information, click on the Services tab and scroll to the link on Post Rehab.
  • Pelvic Floor and Bellicon Classes  If you'd like to join our pelvic floor or Bellicon Bounce classes, we do require at least one thirty minute private to learn the basics of the class content.  Cost for this thirty minute private is $30.

Cancellation/Payment Policy

All private and semi-private sessions require 24 hours notification to avoid a charge.  If your session is scheduled on Monday, notification by Friday at 5 pm is required.  Additionally, there are no refunds or exchanges once payment has been made.  If you are unsure whether Pilates is for you, please call or email the studio and we would be happy to schedule a tour so that we may answer any questions prior to scheduling a session.


"I signed up for the initial introductory sessions at Lakeshore Pilates, thinking I would just do that and continue on at home to DVDs I ordered off an infomercial.  That was was eight years ago and I've never left.  I've found that you need one-on-one instruction to do Pilates properly and at Lakeshore Pilates, that's exactly what you get.  In fact, you won't find better qualified instructors anywhere else."
