Frequently Asked Questions
I’m new, what do I need to bring to a class?
Please wear comfortable clothing to your class that allows you to move. Active wear or comfortable pants/shorts are advisable. You will need to wear socks on the Reformer, preferably with grip on the soles, to avoid slipping. You can purchase Pilates sock at reception.
It’s always handy to bring a drink bottle and towel to freshen up during and after the class.

An initial consultation is required before you attend ANY OF THE CLASSES offered here at Radiant Pilates and Physiotherapy to assess your general level of fitness, any injuries you may have and identify which class is the right fit for you.
