What PilateswithCherese is all about
Pilates with Cherese gives you an option to choose either group or private classes. Some individuals prefer to have a few private lessons, especially if they are new to Pilates, in order to grasp the more subtle elements of understanding Pilates and their bodies. This is especially beneficial if the person has a specific injury or pre-existing condition that needs attention. Private lessons will give the person modifications of exercises that best suits their needs when they do decide to join a group class.
The classes are done in a series of blocks, in order for the individual to be able to benefit completely from Pilates allowing you to progress more effectively. The classes are done on a mat with regular use of small light-weight equipment such as triadballs, toning circle and resistance bands. These classes are less expensive than reformer classes and the added bonus once you learn these exercises you could practice and perfect them at home or when away from home.
