What to wear

Comfortable clothing or gym kit that is not too loose. Dress in non-bulky layers as the studio may be chilly with the windows and doors open for ventilation. Shoes are not worn, so wear socks (grippy, best) or go barefooted.  If you choose to wear shorts, please ensure that they are knee length and close fitting ie cycling shorts. 

What to bring

Your mat (10mm thick, best), water if you tend to get thirsty and a hand towel for a cushion.  Studio mats and small equipment are available to borrow and are sanitised after use. 

What to expect the first session

All new clients will begin with a 1:1 session. This allows for an individual introduction to the Pilates principles such as breathing, alignment and core engagement as well as learn a few basic exercises. 

Can I book just one class to try

As mentioned above, I prefer to invest time with individuals to get the best start with Pilates and hope that they would want the same.  Clients feel more confident and successful having completed a 1:1 session before starting a class.  

How to find the studio

The studio is located at 110 Cadzow Street, Hamilton ML3 6HP.  It is along the street from the Town House. Look for the clock on the building, the entry door is just below.

Where to park

There are many parking options. Two car parks near the Town House have spaces and lower rates (free after 19:30) with a very short walk.  On street parking in front of the building and along Cadzow street is also available (free after 18:00) but can be busy in the evenings.

Access the studio

Call Lisa - 07735024078 - if the door is locked, as the intercom is unreliable. Take a series of stairs to the second floor.  If stairs are an issue, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call to make an appointment for a home visit or different venue.

Are there changing areas

It is best if you can come dressed for class, however there are two toilets available for privacy.

Is there a place to store my possessions 

The reception area has chairs for your comfort and a space to leave your coat, clothing, bags, shoes, wallets and phones (on silent).  Valuables should be safe behind a locked door; however you may ask permission to bring these into the studio. 

What can I take into the studio

In an effort to keep the studio clear and safe, only a minimum of items should be brought in: bottle of water, hand towel, and mat. Ask permission to bring phone (RINGER OFF), wallet/purse and keys.
