Pilates Santé inspires to bring healthy lifestyle habits to the people of the french riviera.
Our classes are offered in the comfort of your own home in the Cote d’Azur region, from Cannes to Monaco. Your first appointment will consist of a consultation, fitness evaluation and an introduction to the foundational movements of modified pilates. This first session will last approximately 1hr 15min, where your instructor will take the time to go over all your concerns and help you create realistic goals. All neccessary equipment will be supplied by your instructor, though we do ask that you provide your own towels. You will need comfortable, flexible clothing and enough floor space to be able lie flat with your arms spread wide. All sessions are one-on-one, unless previously arranged with the instructor.
The home pilates exercise program from Pilates Santé is currently available in French and English.
Where does Pilates Santé offer classes?
Pilates Santé provides modified pilates classes at your home within the region of the french riviera including the cities of: Cannes, Antibes, Sophia-Antipolis, Villeneuve-Loubet, Cagnes-Sur-Mer, Saint Laurent-du-Var, Nice, Villefranche-Sur-Mer, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Beaulieu-Sur-Mer, Eze, and Monaco.
Is Pilates only for women?
Absolutely NOT. This is a common misconception because there is often talk about Pilates being a dancer’s exercise and requiring a considerable amount of flexibility. The Pilates Santé method is structured around a strong central core that stabilises the torso in order to be able to work out all other muscle groups safely. The exercises are resistive and are meant to build strength and endurance.
Can I do the classes with a friend?
Duo classes are available as long as the both of you have similar levels of fitness or physical condition and you have enough space at your home. Please contact Maria before booking to make sure the dual classes will be appropriate.
Do I need a medical certificate to participate?
Not necessarily. Your instructor will ask you to fill out a health questionnaire in your introduction session which will cover all the basics about your readiness to start the pilates program. If there are no complications, then we can start straight away.
What if I need to cancel?
In case of cancellations, please call Maria on 06.21.40.13.72 straight away. Last minute cancellations within less than 24 hours will be charged in full.
How can I make a payment?
Payments for your classes should be made before the scheduled session. Pilates Santé accepts bank transfer payments, personal checks and cash.
How much space do I need in my home for the Pilates Classes?
The minimal amount of space that you will need to properly complete the Pilates exercises is approximately three times your size (horizontally) or enough space to lie down with your arms and legs spread. It is perfectly acceptable to do the classes on your terrace or in your garden, weather permitting.
Do I need to have any equipment?
All equipment neccessary will be provided by your instructor for your class. Though investing in your own equipment (mat, exercise ball, elastic bands, etc) is highly recommended so that you can continue to follow your exercise program between classes.
