  • Do I need pilates experience to participate in your classes?
    All online classes are meant to be accessible for all ability levels. For private sessions, I offer an introductory package to help familiarize you with the basics.
  • Why is Pilates such an effective fitness program?
    Pilates focuses on control of the muscles, and balancing strength with flexibility. Grounded in the belief that a strong core facilitates healthy movement, the practice helps to strengthen underutilized, intrinsic muscles while learning to relax overworked muscles that cause tension and discomfort. You will learn which muscles are most effective in each type of movement, and how to turn on those muscles, applying that knowledge to everyday activities and other forms of exercise.
  • What equipment do I need for your classes?
    Please see online class descriptions for optional equipment. For in person classes, please wear comfortable, fitted exercise clothes. Grip socks are a good option if your toesies get cold.
  • How soon after an injury can I take a class?
    Always check with your doctor or physical therapist to see when it would be appropriate to resume exercise. Private sessions are a great option as you continue your recovery. The Reformed Method is designed to help with injury prevention and rehabilitation.
  • How do I sign up for classes?
    For online Reformed Method classes, sign up here. For private sessions, please contact to schedule.
  • Can I take Reformed Method classes if I’m pregnant?
    Absolutely! I exercised this way throughout my entire second pregnancy and it helped to keep my spine stable. As with any form of exercise, please check with your doctor first. For a healthy pregnancy, all exercises are safe up to 20 weeks. After 20 weeks, please reach out to me to arrange a time to review appropriate modifications.
  • What is the difference between Pilates and Yoga?
    Pilates focuses on muscular control and core strength. Yoga was developed originally as a way to train the mind, and can focus on anything from seated breath work to asana, which is the series of poses we commonly associate with yoga, and tends to place more emphasis on flexibility.
  • Can The Reformed Method classes help me lose weight?
    The goal of The Reformed Method is to help you build strength, stability and achieve more functional movement. Building lean muscle can help burn fat. This practice has changed my body more than any form of exercise I’ve participated in.
  • Can I take Pilates with pre-existing injuries?
    I found this practice when my physical therapist released me and sent me straight to Pilates. Pending doctor or PT approval, Pilates is the best method I know to rehabilitate an injury. I recommend private sessions first, so that I can get familiar with your injury and review modifications before you join a group class.
  • I have scoliosis. Can I take Pilates?
    Yes, yes and yes! I am certified through the Scolio-Pilates method and I also have scoliosis. I wish I had started practicing when I was diagnosed. By building a stronger core, we can effectively create an inner brace to help stabilize your spine, and slow or stop the progression of your curve.
  • Do I need to take private sessions before taking a group class?
    While I recommend it, this is not a requirement. The Reformed Method is meant to be accessible for different ability levels and you can choose which class feels right for you depending on your needs. That said, if you are recovering from an injury, I would love an opportunity to meet privately and offer appropriate corrections.
  • How often can I take Pilates classes?
    I practice Pilates almost every day! If you are new to the practice, I recommend starting with 2-3 times per week and building from there.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    For The Reformed Method private sessions and virtual classes, I ask for the courtesy of at least 24 hours notice.
