Frequently asked questions

What should I wear?


Comfortable form fitting clothing is usually best. Gents cycling shorts with overshoots and t-shirt are common. Please NO SHOES in the studio.




What does Classical Pilates mean?


Pilates instruction is easy to come by these days. The ever-growing popularity of Pilates has put it on the map all over the world. This means there are many ‘types’ of Pilates out there now. These have been now defined into two groups Contemporary and Classical. Classical means that we follow Mr Pilates original method and systems using the apparatus that he designed and patented to support ‘the method’.At StudiQ we are proud to use the classical method - the training is comprehensive meaning we learn the whole system and why and where the exercises link together allowing us to use the whole studio to challenge the client where they need it.




What are the benefits of practising Pilates?


Unlike some forms of exercise, Pilates does not over-develop some parts of the body and neglect others. Though Pilates focuses on core strength, it works the body as a whole. Pilates can be modified to work with any body; attention to the core and full-body fitness, includes the breath and the mind, provide a level of integrative fitness that is hard to find elsewhere. Pilates is popular in rehab scenarios, as well as with sports professionals who find that Pilates is a great foundation for their own focused training. • Improved flexibility. • Increased muscle strength and tone • Improved balance • Improved Posture • Increases Energy • Promotes a strong mind body connection




Who was Joseph Pilates?


Joseph Pilates was born in Germany in 1883, he moved about Europe a lot and during in the early 1910’s was in England teaching boxing and wrestling. As WW1 broke he was still in the UK teaching and helping within the camps as a nurse. It was during this time in the UK he started to develop the Method he called ‘Contrology’ it was also during this time he started to develop the ideas for the apparatus. Later in 1926 Pilates moved to the USA and New York city and it was here that he opened his first studio.

Joseph Pilates continued to develop, train and teach using his method as a basis up until his death in 1967.

His legacy is kept alive mostly in part of his first Protégé Romana Kryzanowska (1923-2013) who’s passion for the method meant that Pilates as we now refer to Contrology it is now taught throughout the world.
