Leslee C. says, "Because of my Scoliosis I’ve been daily practicing yoga for over 40 years but if I skip a day my low back starts to hurt. I just had my second session with the Pilates trainer Crystal Cossey in Atwater Village. I’m just amazed at the quick relief out of pain in my back. I walked in with back pain so bad I couldn’t even stand up straight. I leave after an hour WITHOUT ANY LOW BACK PAIN!! This is astounding, Crystal clearly and slowly showed me simple exercises on a Foam Roller (which I now have at home) and my low back pain is gone. I also loved the Reformer as well to build up my core muscles, which I see is going to take a while to retrain those core muscles, did I mention I’m 65 years old. But I feel like a million bucks after having these 2 sessions with Crystal. She has the patience of a saint, I’m a little dyslexic but she calmly just walks me through the exercise again and again until I get it. Even after a massage my back never felt as good as it does after a training. Crystal is worth every penny if it keeps me out of pain and her prices are very very reasonable especially because I signed up for a series. She really makes Pilates fun and not too overwhelming, check her out if you have low back pain, you have nothing to loose and everything to gain. " Read more

Your Pilates Classes questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do Pilates lessons cost?

The cost of Pilates classes averages from $25 to $150 per session, depending on the instructor and class size. Pilates lessons typically last for an hour and tend to cost more than other types of exercise classes because of the high cost of equipment and the system requires more attention and direction from certified instructors. The actual cost of classes will vary based on the studio, the number of classes you take, and your geographical location.

  • Private Pilates lessons cost the most at $50 to $150 per session
  • Semi-private lessons for 2 or 3 students cost between $40 to $90 per class.
  • Larger group classes start at around $25 per class.
  • Online virtual classes may be free or charged by the month, rather than by the class.

What is Pilates?

Pilates is an exercise technique developed in the 1920s by Joseph Pilates as a form of rehabilitation. His method focuses on building core strength, flexibility, and body awareness through controlled movements. Pilates trains your body to move better in class and during your regular daily activities.

Pilates is a popular form of exercise because it is a minimal-impact exercise that works the whole body and works for people of all ages. Regardless of the type of Pilates lessons you take, the classic principles of breath, concentration, center, control, precision, and flow will remain the same.

What are the different types of Pilates?

There are 6 common types of Pilates classes, both with and without equipment. Picking the right type for you depends on your workout goals.

  1. Classical Pilates follows the original system created by Joseph Pilates that incorporates both mat and apparatus work. This type is good for those who want structure and predictability in their workout.
  2. Mat Pilates uses a yoga mat rather than machines and equipment, with a focus on your core. The movements in mat Pilates are based on the mat exercises in the classical system and are beneficial for those with back pain.
  3. Reformer Pilates offers the core-strengthening benefits of mat Pilates but uses a reformer machine with a bed-like frame, a platform, and a set of springs. The machine allows students to flow from one exercise to the next with transitions, enabling constant movement that burns more calories.
  4. Contemporary Pilates is inspired by the classical system, but each class varies depending on the type of training and personal preferences of the Pilates instructor. The exercises are based on contemporary research and are great for those intimidated by classical Pilates since the workout is less traditional.
  5. Stott Pilates incorporates rehabilitation and movements to align the body and release neck and back pressure. This method also adds props and is popular with those wanting to improve their balance.
  6. Winsor Pilates started as a video class designed to focus on weight loss and shaping the body with classical Pilates exercises done in a specific, nontraditional order to maximize results. The 20-minute workouts are ideal for beginners and those short on time.

What are the benefits of Pilates?

Pilates is a full-body workout that focuses on strengthening core muscles and building strength and stamina. The benefits of Pilates extend beyond your workout, improving the way you think and move in your everyday life. Here are some benefits you should expect to see as you continue your Pilates training:

  • Sculpted core, toned arms, and lifted glutes.
  • Better balance and coordination.
  • Relieved tension in your shoulders, back, and legs.
  • Boosted natural ability to burn fat.
  • Better strength and flexibility to prevent injury.
  • Improved mindfulness and body awareness.

What do I need to bring for a Pilates class?

The most important thing to bring to a Pilates class is comfortable, form-fitting clothing. Loose, baggy clothes make it difficult for the instructor to see and offer direction to improve your movements. Shoes are not worn in Pilates since they restrict movement, but grip socks are worn to provide traction while using the machines.

In addition to proper clothing, most studios suggest you bring a water bottle, towel, and a Pilates mat which is similar to a yoga mat, but thicker.

What questions should I ask a Pilates instructor?

The key to improving your body and mind with Pilates is to find the right instructor with the background and experience to help you get the most from your Pilates training. When calling or visiting Pilates instructors, be sure to ask these important questions:

  • Are you a certified instructor?
  • What training program did you complete?
  • How many hours of apprenticeship were you required to complete?
  • Are you up to date with your continuing education requirements?
  • How many years of teaching experience do you have?
  • What is your exercise specialty and training philosophy?
  • What is your experience with injuries?
  • Are you qualified to teach on all pieces of Pilates equipment?
  • What should I expect from my first class?
  • How often should I practice between lessons?

How do I choose a Pilates instructor?

Finding the right Pilates instructor can help you find balance and control not just in your workout, but in your daily life. Don't settle for the closest class but spend time researching instructors that can help you meet your workout goals. Here are a few tips to help you choose the best Pilates instructor for you:

  • Check with the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA), an international membership organization for Pilates.
  • Look for studios with certified instructors that have completed an intensive 500+ hour comprehensive Pilates teacher training program.
  • Read their reviews on Lessons.com and Google.
  • Ask about their training philosophy, exercise specialties, and experience with injuries and rehabilitation.
  • Make sure they have private, semi-private, or group lessons that suit your training schedule and budget.

Crystal has been very helpful in my recovery from a bad breakup. Through a guided meditation, I was able to cut the final cords of attachment that had been difficult for me to completely let go of. I recommend using Crystal and her unique gifts to help in your own personal transformation. This could be related to relationships, business, or health of body and mind.
