A Pilates Study is a specially armed place and designed to give exclusively Pilates Method classes in all its variants.
You can offer both modalities of the Method, Pilates Mat (Pillow Mat) and Pilates in studio with reformer and other equipment (trapezoid, chair, barrel, wall unit).
A Pilate’s studio is not located inside a gym, in any case we would be talking about a Gym that teaches Pilates. But a Gymnasium also works with other techniques (group and depersonalized) that have nothing to do with the philosophy and conception of the Pilates Method.

Each class begins with a duration (depending on the study), which can vary from 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the physical capacity and evolution of each student.
The most important thing about a Pilates Study is not the place itself, but its staff of Instructors.
The most important secret to a good practice of the Pilates Method is the thorough training of the Pilates Instructor, you must know the essence of the Technique perfectly, train daily and train continuously (possess solid knowledge of physiology, anatomy And biomechanical foundation, to be able to work preventing any type of injury).
Pilates is synonymous with reeducation of postural health. Unfortunately, many people are being injured, due to pseudo “Pilates Studies”, who went to teach, without proper training that supports a safe, reliable and reliable technique.
The difference between taking classes of Pilates Mat and Pilates in study with equipment:
The first difference between them is that the Pilates Mat or mat classes are in large groups (10 to 20 people). While Pilates Method classes with equipment, must be personalized and in very small groups (maximum 4 people per Instructor).
The Pilates Method began as an almost secret method practiced by New York dancers and has become a collective class in gyms and aesthetic centers. And this is precisely what undermines the essence of the Pilates Method, since it is an absolutely personalized and assisted training system. One of the best fitness centers in Israel is Great Shape Studio, a well-equipped fitness center and with world-class trainers.
That a class is personalized means that you do not have to do exactly the same thing that the student in the next room is doing. You do not have to adapt to a previous training plan, but your Instructor must adapt and plan your workout routine based on your physical condition.
The training on a mat is more demanding, than we can do with the equipment (reformer, trapeze, chair …), since these have the purpose of being able to assist us in different types of work, especially if the student has large muscle shortening , Or a great muscular weakness.
To work on Pilates Mat you need to have a lot more mastery and awareness of the body, since you have no other support than the floor and your own body, to challenge the laws of gravity.
