Private Sessions

Most of our instructors offer private sessions. If you buy a package of 10 private sessions, a discount is available (some restrictions apply).

Private Pilates Session (one person)
Private Sessions are personally customized to meet individual needs. Your instructor will help develop a workout program specific to your body and your goals, selecting the exercises that will benefit you the most. Private Sessions are ideal for new clients, clients with injuries and more advanced clients looking to improve their form.

Semi-private Pilates Session (2 people)
Semi-Private sessions provide an opportunity to reduce costs while maintaining a small instructor to student ratio; these sessions are also ideal for friends or family looking to share a workout.


Gyrotonic™ Sessions
From the very first time you experience the Gyrotonic Expansion System® you quickly realize it is unlike any other exercise you have tried before. It is a truly unique exercise experience.

The Gyrotonic® method offers some of the same benefits also found in dance, gymnastics, yoga, swimming and tai chi, but is not derived from these other modalities. And it has been described by many exercise professionals as a breakthrough system for fitness and rehabilitative exercise.

Most of the exercises are performed on the Professional Pulley Tower, and the system is fully adjustable and can meet the needs of many people with varying body types and levels of strength. Unlike conventional exercise programs and their machines which utilize linear movement patterns, Gyrotonic® exercise incorporates three-dimensional circular motion to promote coordinated and efficient movement throughout the body while simultaneously strengthening the muscular attachments.

This circular approach to movement is designed to offer balanced conditioning of the body, and create synchronized strength and length while articulating the joints. The exercises are intended to be fluid and rhythmic, bridging the gap between contraction and extension. This brings balance to the musculoskeletal structure, by utilizing the natural patterns and shapes in the human body, which are comprised of circles and spirals. More is available at gyrotonic.com.

Structural Integration
Pilates exercises helps to align the body restoring proper posture, however, sometimes the muscles and connective tissue have been in a dysfunctional state for so long it's very difficult to change the way they are holding the bones, pressing on nerves and even compressing major organs. This causes chronic pain that doesn’t seem to go away with exercise and other treatments. In this situation the Structural Integration program developed by Evolve Pilatess & Fitness can help.

Structural Integration sessions utilize multiple modalities to help you restore healthy tissue, correct faulty movement patterns and balance your posture. Sessions may include bodywork modalities like massage, stretching and neuromuscular techniques as well as exercises that isolate specific problems and correct joint function.

The structural therapists at Evolve are highly trained in anatomy and bodywork modalities as well as nationally certified Pilates instructors with extensive training in special populations. They have also been trained in a specific type of therapy called Neurosomatic Therapy; a type of neuromuscular massage that works by using manual techniques to release the muscles and connective tissue that are compressing bones, nerves and organs. Neurosomatic Therapy is different from other types of massage because the therapists use a very specific assessment system that leads them right to the source of the pain. Coupled with the knowledge of healthy joint function and movement, the assessment is like drawing a map of a person's entire body from the toes to the head. This enables the therapist to see the body as whole working unit. Unlike many establishments that treat only one body part at a time, Neurosomatic therapists treat the body as a whole, knowing that just because the pain is in the shoulder, it doesn't necessarily mean the shoulder is the cause of the pain.

The Sturctural therapists at Evolve Pilates will get to the source of your pain and after your evaluation, they will then help you restore healthy joint function and realign your body by establishing new muscle memory patterns and creating strong healthy posture, so you won’t have to spend years in the therapy room.
