Getting Started

Everyone coming into the studio 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 or Semi-Private Sessions.  These initial sessions introduce you to the basics of Pilates and our teaching style at the studio.  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 if done privately or $60 for both sessions per person if done semi-privately.  You may schedule with a friend or we would be happy to pair you up with someone else. 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.  What to expect:  You will meet with a post rehabilitation and corrective exercise professional for an initial comprehensive assessment that consists of manual muscle testing and movement screens to determine muscular imbalances, as well as discern the probable root cause of where the dysfunction is originating.  After that, you will schedule additional private sessions to implement a customized program specific to your body's individual needs.  We will work with your medical professional to assist in the transition out of therapy, into post rehabilitation, and ultimately an exercise maintenance program.   Please call or email the studio to set up an initial assessment.

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 six 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."
