What if I am injured? In pain? Out of shape?
Come as you are, my friend. Come as you are! Many people think they have to reach a certain point – such as losing weight, or getting out of chronic pain – before they can try Pilates, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! You do not have to be a certain age, shape, or in any specific circumstance to start enjoying the benefits of Pilates. And we can’t emphasize that enough! When you walk in our door for your first lesson, we take great care starting you right where you are. We, of course, want you to be safe and get your doctor’s advice about Pilates if you are dealing with a current injury, but let us reassure you that you are in excellent hands at The Pilates Nook. All of our instructors take their craft seriously and go to workshops all over the country to stay educated on a number of issues in order to better serve you. We have experience teaching people dealing with sciatica, hip replacements, knee surgeries, bulging discs, scoliosis, lupus and multiple sclerosis, just to name a few. If you have concerns about your situation, just come in and talk to us. We are here to listen and answer any questions you might have.
