If you are scheduling online just choose to schedule a 50 minute private session.  If you and a friend want to do the complimentary private session together you could both schedule a semi-private session at the same time and date.  If you have any problems at all please feel free to use the form below to contact us or call us and we can get you scheduled that way.

Want to start with a complimentary class instead of a private?

If you already have an established movement practice and are comfortable starting out with a class we don’t mind at all.  If you have any injuries or special conditions we would highly suggest starting off with a private session first, but otherwise you are welcome to start your journey off at Rivercity Pilates with a class.  If you are new to Pilates equipment work we suggest that you start off with a Pilates Mat Class first and then check in with your instructor about trying an equipment class next time.  Your safety is very important to us and we want to make sure that you are comfortable with how the equipment functions before starting a group class.  Any of our Pilates Mat, Yoga, or Barre classes would be great choices for your first class!!
