Whether you come once or weekly, Join us for our semi-private sessions on the Reformer, Tower, and Chair. Beginners welcome but may want to consider a Private Lesson before joining.



  • What makes pilates different than yoga?
    Pilates and Yoga both strive to harness strength of the body but have key differences in methodology.  The use of apparatus is the most obvious of difference.  However, there are also differences in the breathing techniques as well as stretching and cueing.  Pilates and Yoga both strive for balanced freedom of movement and complement each other well.  The body needs movement above all.
  • Do I need to bring a mat?
    No.  All of the wood line apparatus are convertible to mats.  Feel free to bring a sealed water bottle.
  • Is pilates for dancers?
    Joseph Pilates was not a dancer.  He was a boxer, wrestler and gymnast.  The Pilates – Dance connection was by coincidence of lease when Joseph opened his first studio in NY.  Dancers frequented the studio for rehabilitation and cross-training.  They eventually became the first trainees and were given permission to open their own studios carrying on the lineage. Joseph created Pilates (Contrology), as a training regimen with therapeutic results. Dancers have been integral in lineage of the method but Pilates is meant for everyone.     
  • Is there a late cancellation policy?
    Yes.  Private, small group and duet sessions have a 24 hour cancellation policy.  Under 24 hours and the client is responsible for payment in full.  Classes have a 12 hour cancellation policy.  If registered for a class clients will be charged if not removed from the class 12 hours in advanced.  Late cancellations will be charged in full. Please Note: If only one client is booked, the session will become a 30-minute private session with no difference in cost. If you arrive more than 5 minutes late to semi-group classes, you will be charged the full amount for the session and will not be able to attend.
  • Is there a shower in the studio?
    No. There is not a shower at Pilates 804 but there are two private changing stalls for those on the go.  There is also storage for your personal items during your lesson.
  • What is the best thing to wear?
    Where whatever you feel comfortable working out in.  Clothes should be form fitting and not excessively baggy because instructors need to see your body to keep you in good working form.  Be aware that Pilates requires movement in various special planes and we all value our modesty.  Socks are not required but are highly recommended.  
  • I'm not sure how to use the pilates apparatus. Help?!
    Do not be intimidated by the apparatus and its torturous appearance. Everyone has to start somewhere.  The apparatus is actually incredibly simple and easy to use by design.  Instructors at Pilates 804 make your safety priority.  Therefore, every client is taught basic terminology and handling of the apparatus.  You will gain confidence in using the apparatus to your body’s needs within you first few classes.  With dedicated practice, the apparatus will become as regular to you as an elliptical.
