Getting started with any new movement experience can be intimidating so my goal is to eliminate any hesitancy that you may have. I want you to be excited to join a class, to move, to challenge yourself a bit and to feel good!
Step 1 - Initial Consultation
To get started, I invite you to either use the form here or call (850) 287-5194 to request an appointment for us to meet and to tour the studio. This allows us to get to know each other and for me to understand your goals and motivation to start learning Pilates.
The Initial Consultation is a one-on-one 30-minute active discussion which will help us devise a movement program best fit for your individual body. During the Initial Consultation, you will have the opportunity to try out some of the Pilates equipment in order to have a recommended plan forward.
Set 3 - After the Initial Consultation
Based on your Initial Consultation, you will have three options and we will decide together what is best for you.
1) The first option will be to start with the New Client Private Sessions. This package of two sessions is focused on you and your body so that we can get you comfortable with the movement and flow of Pilates. We will schedule these sessions once you decide you like this option.
2) The second option is to attend the group Reformer class called Pilates 101. This is a class that is specifically designed for students who have good physical movement currently or have some Pilates experience. This class allows you along with other students to become comfortable with the various equipment used in the studio.

Step 4 - Install
Once you have decided your best path, we request that you install the MINDBODY app if you don't already have it installed. The MINDBODY app is used for viewing class availability, reserving classes, changing or cancelling classes, setting up calendar reminders, rating classes and making payments so is the easiest way to find the class you want, book it and keep track of your schedule! Links within this Pilates with Luci website will take you directly to MINDBODY to make the process faster and simpler for you to use. The link to install the app is below if you want to get a head start!
What to expect at the studio
What to wear
Wear comfortable, form-fitting, breathable clothes that you can easily move in. Form-fitting clothes will permit visibility to your body alignment and allow me to make precise corrections to your form. The goal is to focus on the movement rather than what you are wearing.
What to bring
All equipment and props are provided. You may bring water to stay hydrated. There is a water cooler available in the studio if you need a refill.
Arrive on time
Please arrive 5-10 minutes before class starts to ensure that everything is set up properly for you when class begins.
All clients are required to fill out a waiver before the first class. This can be done online when you create your MindBody profile or when you come to the studio for your Initial Consultation.
When people don’t show up for a session or cancel at the last minute, their space in the class goes unused. In order to avoid the inconvenience of unused space which could be used by other clients, we have a lenient cancellation policy. You can freely cancel, without charge, up to 24 hours before a session start time. If you cancel less than 24 hours prior to the session start time, you will be charged the full fee for that session.
