In a private session is where you become familiar with the equipment, and the set up. In Classical Pilates you are taught independence with your machines. Private sessions are for new clients to Pilates, elderly clients, clients with special needs, or the person who does not want his/her time shared. After 5-10 Private sessions you may move into semi-private sessions. Discuss what you would like with your instructor at your first Classical Pilates session.
Semi-Private sessions are like mini-privates sessions. There are no more than two people in a session. You get a good workout and plenty of undivided attention. Due to limited time slots available for Marie if you are a healthy body she may suggest taking semi-privates sessions after a series of privates.
