  STEP 2   Buy a membership to the studio - needed to purchase any cards or packages (included in Initiation package)
 
  STEP 3   Purchase a card for private coaching, group apparatus, collective classes, or a system card (combination of apparatus and collective classes)
 
  STEP 4   Book classes in your level:
  • Foundation - no experience or limited experience (less than 20 classes)
  • Foundation/Beginner - 20 to 30 classes experience
  • Beginner - 40+ classes
  • Beginner/Intermediate – 1 to 2 years experience
  • Intermediate - 2 to 4 years experience
  • Intermediate/Advanced - 4+ years experience 

 


INITIATION PACKAGE

(Valid 2 months)

2 x Private coaching + 1 x Collective + 1 x Group Apparatus + free Membership

These will help you learn:

  • Vocabulary specific to your discipline (Pilates or Gyrotonic)
  • Specific spinal positions for your security
  • About your goals, posture, wellbeing etc. by giving you a chance to ask your teacher specific questions you have
  • Some basic breathing patterns to help guide the exercises, strengthen your diaphragm and give rhythm to the movement
  • To work with your current limitations and strengths and how to move forward to new movement patterns and better posture
  • Which classes will be of the most interest to you based on the teacher’s observations and your personal goals

Even if you are already experienced in Pilates, GYROTONIC®, GYROKINESIS®, Yoga or CoreAlign®, the Initiation package is still a wonderful option that allows you to go deeper into a discipline, or to explore others offered at Corpus Studios. This can be an opportunity for you to get to know the teachers or work on a different apparatus than you previously have used. It may be the perfect opportunity to reconnect with a familiar discipline or discover a new one.

Please be sure to enter in the level of classes that are appropriate to your skills. You can ask a Corpus Studios teacher or receptionist to help you.
