First time at the studio – Initial Consultation
Your first time at the studio is a one-on-one introduction session. We discuss your goals, posture, how core stability can work for you and injuries that may affect your program. We test your strength through introductory exercises and design a program to suit you that can be adjusted as you progress. You may do more one-on-one sessions if needed.
Small Group ‘Studio’ sessions – up to four people – 60 minutes
In small group Studio sessions everybody is doing an individual program in a friendly non-competitive atmosphere. Your instructor will help you get the most out of each exercise. Most clients do one or two of these sessions a week (or combine with Matwork or Equipment Circuit session) and love the effect on their bodies. We are very happy to work with other health professionals you are seeing with regard to an injury or issue of concern. Just let us know. Bookings essential.
