One on One
Sessions are offered in two levels: Essential Matwork and Essential/Intermediate Matwork.
At the Essential Level, clients are introduced to the “Five basic principles” of STOTT PILATES® :
2. Pelvic Placement
3. Rib Cage Placement
4. Scapular Movement and Stabilization
5. Head and Cervical Placement
At the Essential/Intermediate Level, we continue reviewing and reinforcing the 5 Basic Principles whilst building up and adding progression to the Essential Matwork. At this level clients should be familiar with the essential repertoire and are encouraged to work at their own pace.
Private sessions with Brisa will give clients the opportunity to discuss any specific postural issues, injuries or rehabilitation post-injury. Clients will be able to follow a programme tailored to their needs and goals.
- spinal articulation and mobility around the joints.
- correct alignment
- coordination of breath and movement.
- initial strengthening of core (intrinsic) muscles and core stability.
- flexibility around the joints.
Brisa will support clients on a one-to-one basis, offering modifications and providing equipment and props to help individuals with different needs and abilities, reach their goals.
Session length: 50-60mins
“I have been doing Pilates for over ten years. In the last few months I have had the pleasure of being taught by Brisa.
She is without doubt the best teacher I have ever had. Her detail given out during the class ensures that everyone is doing the exercises correctly. A* Brisa”
- Sue Coulson
Those new to pilates are encouraged to attend one-to-one sessions before joining a group class. This is necessary so the individual is adequately introduced to the foundation of the exercises and given the confidence and knowledge to work at their own pace.
"I started Pilates with Brisa to gain my core strength back after a Cesarean birth and more recently, an operation on my ovaries. To begin with I learnt the deep breathing Pilates technique and after a few one-on-one sessions, I was already beginning to connect my mind and body which enabled me to start gentle core exercises. Brisa devised an individual program for me and has continued to tailor the exercises each week. After 9 months, I'm able to do a full Pilates session and I feel stronger than I ever have done.
I've decided to continue with the one-on-one sessions with Brisa because afterwards I feel confident, happy and aware of my posture!"
"From the very beginning Brisa told me "Pilates is your medicine". She is right! I have developed a love of Pilates and it has become a part of my life. I am stronger, more flexible and it makes me feel really happy. Brisa is so lovely and very professional."
- Zoe Sheldon
