Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Pilates?
    Pilates (specifically Mat Pilates )is a great workout for all fitness levels. It sometimes incorporates props such as light weights and resistance bands, but is often done with just body weight. Pilates focuses on full body strengthening (with an emphasis on core strengthening), and improving flexibility and balance.
  • What do I need to bring to class?
    Since the majorty of my classes are over Zoom the classes require WIFI and a computer, tablet, or phone to watch the class. Other Items needed include: - Yoga/Pilates Mat - Water Bottle - Comfortable workout clothes Note: sock and shoes are not required for Pilates
  • I've never done Pilates before.. will I be ok in the class?
    Yes! Many of my clients are brand new to Pilates and have never been to a class previously. Classes are suitable for all fitness levels and I will often give modified exercises if you need an easier option. Everyone is a beginner at some point so don't be too hard on yourself!
  • Can men join classes?
    Yes! All genders are welcome in classes. Pilates is often thought of as a womens exercise but many men are getting into it including some of the top male athletes (Auston Matthews, Lebron James, Peyton Manning, and Cristiano Ronaldo just to name a few)!
  • If I want to buy props for classes which ones should I get?
    Props are an amazing way to add some challenge to your workout! These would be the first two I feel like would be most beneficial to start with: - I highly recommend light weighted tonining balls (1-3 lbs). These can be found on Amazon. Here is the link for the ones I use which are 2 lbs. - Loop Resistance Bands are the perfect small, light prop that can really intensify some exercies. When I used to travel for work this is what I would bring with me in my suitcase since it doesnt take up much room but is SO effective! Here are the ones I use which come in a 5 pack with different levels of resistance.
  • My Doctor/ Physiotherapist recommended that I try Pilates, what class should I attend?"
    Depending on the reasoning (ex. recovering from an injury), it's best to start with a Private Class. This way I am able to spend time with you and focus on exercises that will benefit you the most (and avoid any exercises that you shouldn't be doing). If your Doctor recommeded Pilates to help with general mobility/ flexibility - than a group class will be perfect for you! Please feel free to email me at or, send me a message on the CONTACT page before you sign up to let me know about any concerns so I can figure out how to best support you. Safety is the most important thing.
  • Can I do a class in person?
    Yes! (depending on where you are located) Currently I am able to do in-person private classes (at your home/backyard) if you are located in Toronto, or Pickering Ontario. During the summer I host a few outdoor park group classes (join the email list to stay up to date for these)
  • I am not located in Ontario, Canada, can I still join classes?
    Yes! I have clients from all over the world. The majority of my group classes and private classes are done virtually over Zoom. I host virtual live group classes Tuesdays-Fridays which are 30 minutes long. Book a Virtual Group Class here You can also book a Private Virtual Class here
