Private Pilates Sessions
In a Private Pilates session, you experience a 55-minute session tailored to your body’s level and desired focus on Pilates mat and equipment: the Reformer, Wunda Chair and BioCored. You will also learn your body like never before through the tutelage of your own certified Pilates trainer that works with you for quick results.
With a private session you book a time that works in your schedule rather than sticking to a pre-set class schedule–we recommend 30 minute classes to start for those with fibromyalgia. A Pilates instructor’s trained eye is crucial for proper form and ultimate results. The instructor ensures that it never gets boring by introducing something new in variations, props, equipment and constant motivation.
What is Reiki?
A Japanese term meaning “vital life force energy,” Reiki is a healing modality during which spiritually guided subtle energy is transmitted to clear energetic blockages and balance body, mind, and spirit. Using gentle hand placement, the Reiki practitioner facilitates energy flow wherever needed to promote healing and pain relief on many levels. Deeply relaxing and soothing, Reiki therapy helps the recipient reconnect with her/his essential nature and own healing energy to work with issues such as anxiety, discomfort, pain and insomnia.
What happens during a Reiki session?
At the beginning of the 60 or 90 minute session, the recipient is asked to share any problem or issues, and what is hoped to be achieved from the treatment. Treatment is received while lying on a massage table, or if necessary while sitting in a chair. Many people report a warm or tingling sensation when receiving Reiki. Emotional issues sometimes arise or a spiritual question presents itself. Because Reiki is transmitted with loving compassion, it creates a safe space to express feelings, even strong feelings. Overall, the time should be pleasant, relaxing, and even invigorating.
Sessions are available for 30 or 60 minutes.
