FREQUENT QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

FAQ

In a pilates group class (mat or reformer), clients follow a standard program. The instructor offers general direction, and depending on their expertise can provide options for modifications.

In a personalised pilates studio session, clients’ condition is immediately assessed on the day, determining the direction of that day’s session format, in accordance with their overall personal goals for pilates and how they feel on that day.

Personalised pilates studio sessions enable relationship to develop between instructor-client, so they get to know the body’s natural capabilities and the pilates method can be more thoroughly explored.

Pilates InsideOut is a family-owned business. Rodney and Jennifer are the only instructors. They share a non-negotiable foundation in how pilates should be taught, and while their own individual teaching style is evident, they understand each other’s application of pilates – therefore clients feel confident in consistency of care.

No. No health fund recognises pilates as claimable. If you are told otherwise, it’s actually a breach of health fund policy, regardless of who is teaching.

In our personalised studio environment, we can guide anyone through a pilates session, regardless of age, condition, or ailment. 

This is the benefit of one-to-one instruction, and why we only take a maximum of 3 clients per session – enabling us to give more attention to each individual.

That said, we prefer you’re able to climb stairs (we are upstairs) and get up/down fairly easily from the pilates equipment.

‘Fitness’ pilates is generally taught in groups, and the content is pre-set sequencing. It will usually not cater to specific needs of the individual. It is generic pilates. If taught well, it is beneficial to the individual who has great body awareness and/or no physical complications.

‘Physio’ pilates is often an abbreviated form of pilates, using some of the core pilates exercises to help patients on the road to recovery. Many people experience benefits post-injury and post-surgery this way. However, some physiotherapists do no more than a weekend pilates course to be eligible to teach pilates in their clinics, making it difficult for them to fully embrace the nuances of pilates.

What we do is different because we are specifically and only pilates trained, over many years. We understand the pilates method, and its various styles and applications. 

Our education in pilates is steeped in its history, its modern approaches, its fundamentals, and in the way we program our sessions. Additionally, we’ve been trained from childhood to elite level, to be aware of how to move every part of our own body – athletically and artistically, and to see movement patterns in others’ bodies. We are highly skilled at being able to translate how to feel movement, and how to modify and progress pilates to suit an individual’s needs.

While there are many good instructors in the fitness and rehabilitative fields, it’s our firm belief that pilates should not be taught by those who have limited mastery of movement within their own body.

Pilates was and is its own genre of movement. It is such an adaptable method, and it works so well for so many reasons, which is why other industries have keenly adopted it. Each professional in their field understands their purpose – be it ‘general fitness’ or ‘clinical aid’ – and they use pilates to help their cause.

At the end of the day, you the consumer know what you need and like.

The main thing is to ensure you receive correct core strengthening, and find your own way for pilates to enhance your life.
