Should I take a private lesson?
It depends. I think EVERYONE should do a private at least once! You get a level of focused attention that will help your practice immensely. Privates are a financial commitment but the benefits to your progress are notable. Consider privates if:
You just like them!
You have injuries that need more specific accommodations
You are working on very specific goals
You desire lots of personalized feedback
You struggle with mobility getting off and on the reformer or adjusting it
You learn more effectively alone
You want to gain confidence before you consider joining a group class
duo & trio privates
Two or three person private sessions are a great way to get personalized, private coaching at a less expensive price point. (Plus it's fun to work out with a friend or partner regardless of price!) Your sessions will be custom to meet your particular goals or challenges, just like a solo private.
Maybe you are in town for a wedding and you want to do a fun private session with your family? Or perhaps you and a friend, coworker, or partner live here and want to buy the 4 or 8 class package to get consistent, custom weekly workouts. The instructor will give direct feedback to each of you and will balance your varying abilities and desires.
intro to reformer private
This private is a discounted, required 45 minute session for people who want to participate in reformer classes but have never used a reformer before (either at studioCORE or at another studio).
This is NOT an option for students who have used reformers, students who are seeking a standard private coaching experience, AND/OR students who do not intend to take group classes right away. On rare occasions, after this intro, you and the instructor may determine you would benefit from another private lesson or two prior to joining classes. If that occurs, subsequent privates would be at the regular private rate.
Note: there is also a free 2x month reformer intro class that you can take
