What is Pilates?

Pilates is a form of low-impact exercise that aims to strengthen muscles while improving postural alignment and flexibility. Pilates moves tend to target the core, although the exercises work other areas of your body as well. At One Playground, our classes are both with and without equipment, with an emphasis on slow, precise movements & breath control. All in all, Pilates is a full-body workout that will help you do everything better. Our Pilates workouts vary from 45 minutes to an hour long.

What should I expect in a Pilates class?

When you arrive at your Pilates class, our instructors will be waiting to greet you. Their introduction will be focused on explaining the class format, what equipment you’ll be using (if any), and will ask if you are working with any injuries or restrictions. Class formats can be tailored to wherever you’re at in your fitness journey, no one is too new or too advanced. You’ll meet an array of instructors, all bringing a unique style to their Pilates classes. We do ask that you please arrive five minutes early to your class so your instructor can start on time.

What do I bring to my Pilates class?

We provide blocks, hand weights & mats in our studios. All that we ask is that you please bring a towel, water bottle (preferably not plastic as we’re not big on that) and a mat if you’d like to use your own. We’ll also provide the pretty studios and awesome line-up of instructors! We heavily enforce the towel policy (no towel, no play, no gym today).

What other facilities are available?

Along with our serene MindBody studio, you’ll have full access to our gym facilities. These include our boutique bathrooms that are fitted out with showers, lockers, hair dryers, hair straighteners & botanical soaps.

Can I bring someone?

Of course! When we reach out to book you in, don’t be afraid to tell us who you’d like to bring along to your first Pilates class.
