There are many benefits of taking a Pilates class that you are well aware of. However, have you ever thought about whether you stand to gain anything by taking a private Pilates class?

Here are some of the big takeaways from a private Pilates class:

Better Form

Correct form is a major part of Pilates. In order to maximize what you gain from taking a Pilates class, you need to ensure that your form and technique are on-point. And the best way to do this is via a private session. Rather than having to pay attention to all the students in the class at the same time, a private session allows your instructor to focus 100% on you and fix every little misstep in your form.

Faster Improvement

Private session students find themselves improving in Pilates much quicker because they have much more hands-on attention. Each session can be catered exactly to your needs and what you need to focus more attention on, so your chances of improving quickly greatly increase.

More Knowledge

In a private session, you are one-on-one with a Pilates guru who is a wealth of knowledge on this exercise. This provides the ideal opportunity to pick your instructor’s brain and learn a great deal about Pilates that you wouldn’t learn in a classroom setting.

Different Motivation

While in a class setting you get motivation from the other students taking the class (which can be great!), in a private setting you get more individualized motivation and have an instructor who is cheering you on and motivating just you.


Everyone excels at different rates and in different areas of Pilates. In a class setting, you go along with the progress of the class, not your specific progress. In a private session, however, you are able to customize to fit exactly what you need to focus on, and what you can spend less time working on.

The Takeaway

We are all about group Pilates classes. They are a great way to practice Pilates and create a fun environment for you to work out in. However, there are some things that a private session can give you that a group session cannot.

We love the idea of using private sessions at Konnect Pilates to compliment your group classes. That way you get the best of both worlds!
