Your First Visit - Studio Orientation


Intimidated by Pilates? Don’t be. At Pure Pilates, we welcome all shapes, sizes and skill levels – and our instructors know how to make you feel at home. If you’re attending your first class, here are a few tips to get you comfortable:

You have an injury.

Come in a few minutes early .Your instructor is there to make sure you get the most out of your Pilates session, feel free to chat with your instructor about any medical conditions, injuries, pregnancies or other issues that could limit your ability to exercise. This will help your instructor modify movements appropriately for you.

What to wear.

Stretchy pants welcome. Wear comfortable clothing that is appropriate for exercise. Your pants should allow you to move easily and your top should be fitted or semi-fitted. It’s in your best interest to wear fitted clothing, so our instructors can keep an eye on your form and alignment.  Please avoid baggy, loose clothing or shorts. Stretchy lycra fabrics are awesome for ease and freedom of movement (think yoga pants or leggings).  No shoes beyond the shoji doors, so leave those with your belongings. Please no jewelry, strong-scented perfumes, or lotions.

Toe socks and Straps.

Are mandatory inside the studio.  If you don't own either, we sell both at the studio.  You will be able to borrow both, during your first few visits.


In our efforts to provide you and your fellow students a pleasant and clean environment, we ask that you bring your own towels for all your needs during class.


The beauty of our studio is that it allows you to exercise and rehabilitate in a calm, tranquil environment. Noisy, buzzing, vibrating devices won’t help any of us get our groove, so keep your cell phones silent or leave them in the car.
