Duet (Semi-Private) pilates Sessions
Attention for Two!
While there is no substitute for expert personal attention, the next best is semi-private and duet training. You and a friend will be able to train together at a discounted rate, without sacrificing all of the benefits on a one-on-one session. This is the perfect option if you and a friend are working on similar goals, or have a synched-up training schedule. Partner training can bring out the best in you, keeping you on your toes and accountable to your commitments.
About the Pilates Apparatus
This sophisticated piece of equipment encourages length through the tissues, but also demands stability, focus and sustained effort. This is achieved through eccentric muscle contractions: the muscle lengthening as it resists force. This is what creates the long, lean bulk-free look Pilates is famous for producing. The marriage of range of motion, strength & stretch brings about a holistic balance in the body.
Expect a custom, laser-focused session designed to meet both of your goals, tailored precisely to your bodies.
On the equipment, there is no place for muscular and structural imbalances to hide. This is what makes it so perfect for people working with injuries, and other conditions. It encourages - through slow & smoothly controlled movement sets - the equilibrium of strength, and your body responds over time by correcting for over & under compensations that often are a natural outcropping of injuries & conditions like scoliosis.
Studio 8 Pilates, is a wonderful Pilates studio, low key and without affectation but not without impact. You will definitely feel stronger and more flexible and this will positively influence other parts of your life. It also helps that Christine is a fantastic instructor and knows just how to push you that extra bit more to reach your goals. And she has a great sense of humor.-Amy K.

I was first introduced to pilates by my best friend who wanted to try something new. We took a duets class with Christine. I had hesitated at first mainly because of the unknown but Christine made our first session unforgettable. Love Christine's way of teaching & guiding. She has a way of making you extremely aware of your body mechanics which I appreciate! Who knew small, slow controlled movements went a long way! As an Registered Ultrasound Tech my arms, neck, upper back, etc… go through a great deal of stress and I do believe Pilates has helped! Also other several things I noticed, my body changed, I felt stronger/leaner/toned, but most importantly I swear that it helped me IMMENSELY with my cramps. I honestly should of tried this years ago! Christine is forever accommodating beyond belief. The studio is amazingly clean and open. Parking is easy & free! So it was a win-win every way I looked at it! Love Studio 8 and Christine!-Alicia B.
