Studio Initial Consultation
Your first session is Solo at the Studio. We discuss your goals, assess your muscle balance and posture and do some introductory movement to learn how core stability can work for you. Then we’ll design a program tailored for you that addresses your goals and any rehab requirements for old or new injuries.
Studio SOLOS & DUOS
If its individual or private duo sessions you are wanting, due to Covid, or because you prefer to work on your own, we will tailor your workouts to give you a challenge that meets your stated goals. You’ll have our full attention. Positive and insightful feedback make a big difference to the way you feel and how effective the exercises are for you.
Studio SMALL GROUP Pilates
A small group is comprised of 3 people in studio. Imagine 3 solos occurring, each person on their own piece of equipment (Reformer, Cadillac, Wunda Chair) doing exercises uniquely designed to meet your needs and desired goals. The instructor works with one person at a time paying careful attention to detail. You get time to work on your own for a bit while they work with someone else and then they’ll come back to check how you are going and set you up with the next exercise or stretch.

Benefits of a Low Back Pain Program
Persistent and intermittent pain hinders daily activities. Bending, sitting, lifting, gardening , sleeping or standing for extended periods may be restricted because of your back pain. Pain sometimes refers to your hip, leg or even down to your foot.
At Waverley Pilates we will work with you to strengthen your low back and the deep abdominal muscles, (the CORE). Research has shown that working with these muscles a little as once a week assists in healing and alleviating pain.
Benefits of a Hip Pain Program
Misalignment of the spine and instability of the pelvis have a role in buttock, groin and hip joint pain. This can range from annoying to disabling pain when sitting, or driving for long periods, standing, sleeping, walking, sport and leisure activities and pregnancy.
We teach you in-studio and at-home techniques for releasing your tight hip muscles that may be constricting the joint and causing dysfunction. We will then work with specific muscles that need to be strengthened to rebalance the pelvis.
