FAQ’s

Is there any parking available? 2017-01-12T22:34:48+00:00

There is ample parking around our studio.

You can park for free outside Sutton Town Hall after 5pm. Outside these times you can park here and on Midland Drive for an hour free of charge.

Parking is also available on Railway Road opposite the entrance to the Job Centre or further down for only 40p.

How do waiting lists work? 2017-01-12T22:23:41+00:00

In the event of a class being full we operate a waiting list; if somebody cancels and a space becomes available, the person at the top of the waiting list will automatically be moved onto the class. An email will be sent to you informing you so please keep an eye on your e-mails if you are waiting.   You can remove yourself from the waitlist at any time – right up until class starts, likewise you can be moved on too.  Please note that if you are moved onto the class from the waiting list, the cancellation policy still applies.

Are there any changing facilities? 2017-01-02T15:02:02+00:00

No, we provide space to store shoes and hang your coat but unfortunately this doesn’t expand to changing rooms. There are lockers for your valuables.

What do I need to bring? 2017-01-02T15:00:53+00:00

Nothing! Everything is here at the Pilates Lounge. We provide mats but you’re more than welcome to bring your own. A bottle of water for hydration is a good idea and any comforts you want for personal use such as a rolled up towel.

Who is Pilates for? 2017-01-12T22:39:57+00:00

Pilates is for everyone interested in moving in a healthy way.  Literally it is for everyone! It underpins our fundamental movement in life, including sports and other fitness activities.

What is the Pilates Method? 2017-01-12T22:45:01+00:00

Pilates is a method of exercise and physical conditioning designed to stretch, strengthen, and balance the body. Pilates strengthens all the muscle groups, but particularly the deep “core muscles” which are so important to both our posture and our overall health and well being. Pilates teaches balance and control of the body, this not only brings improvements to movement in class but also other areas of your life.

The results you see from Pilates won’t just remain in the studio. You will learn to incorporate what you learn in your Pilates sessions into your daily lives – how you stand and walk, how you sit at the computer or drive a car, as well as more physical activities such as football, skiing, tennis, running, cycling, hiking, dancing or swimming.

What are the advantages of private sessions? 2017-01-02T14:54:57+00:00

When Joe Pilates taught it, he designed each programme to suit individual needs and only did a few group classes. Mostly exercises are tailored to address personal imbalances, strengths and weaknesses. You get undivided attention with plenty of opportunity to ask questions, seek clarification, stop and repeat a movement again. You get time to understand what you are trying to achieve with each exercise and the reasons for doing it in that particular way – so that you develop good technique.
