Practicing Pilates in a group setting is often FUN and encouraging! You get to experience the dynamics of a group, and learn from others! New students should use caution, however, and keep their focus on their Instructor. It is easy to become distracted by watching others perform and lose site of your own movement. Group instruction is definitely meant for those who have taken Pilates in the past and can understand the Pilates Fundamentals. Instructor approval is required before signing up for classes.
