Getting Started at Kona Pilates is easy!
Ready to get started with us? Great! (And yay for you!)
Your Kona Pilates experience begins with the completion of a series of 3 Private Orientation lessons (although 6 lessons are highly recommended for best results). Each lesson is 60 minutes in length. Prior training in Stott (Contemporary) Pilates or GYROTONIC exercise may be considered to meet all or part of this prerequisite.
These lessons form the foundation of your movement arts experience. Without a strong foundation, no technique (no matter how good it is) will yield all of the benefits available to you.
Your lessons begin with a brief history of either The Method pioneered by Joseph Pilates, progressing to the contemporary, anatomical approach of STOTT PILATES, and current spinal rehabilitation training or a brief history of the GYROTONIC Expansion System as created by our teacher, Juliu Horvath. During this first lesson your instructor will: 1) take a brief medical history focusing on any issues that may affect physical performance, 2) talk with you about your goals with Pilates and/or GYROTONIC exercise, 3) complete a postural analysis and an initial muscular assessment, 4) you will learn the basic principles of alignment and movement within Stott Pilates and/or GYROTONIC exercise, and 5) we'll get you moving and on your road to feeling fantastic! You may choose to focus on one discipline or you may choose to enjoy both. Your instructor will help you decide which system(s) will best serve you and your fitness goals.
Each subsequent lesson will build upon the previous, introducing more complex movements along with core strengthening and stabilization exercises. By the end of these introductory lessons, you will have learned the foundational elements of either GYROTONIC exercise or Stott Pilates and a solid curriculum of essential equipment exercises that build initial strength in the core, lengthen and release tight muscles, as well as the use of props (if necessary) to assist you in your program. Your instructor may recommend additional private lessons if deemed necessary prior to joining duet, shared or group lessons, as the group class environment may not be appropriate for every person.

The "Gold Standard" in Mind-Body Exercise. Both Pilates and GYROTONIC exercise are designed to be taught one-on-one with each student so that each lesson is custom tailored to meet your personal learning style, speed, and meet your goals. Private Lessons move at your pace, not at the pace of a group, and are the quickest way to make progress and transform your body. Private lessons are also the choice for those who are working with an active or chronic injury/pain, and for those who prefer the personalized attention that only Private Lessons can provide. Available in any of the movement disciples (or combination) we offer, including Post Rehab Therapy. Private lesson students can expect to workout on a variety of the following (depending on your goals) the Pilates Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, and Barrels, the GYROTONIC Pulley Tower, Ladder, and Jump Stretching Board, TRX, Barre, and props

It is suggested that prior to joining a GYROKINESIS group class, new students book a single private lesson so that the basic FUNdamentals of this amazing system are learned before applying them to movement. (If you are already a GYROTONIC student, you'll already be doing those FUNdamentals and more!)
