FAQ

What is Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT)?

Neurokinetic Therapy approaches the body’s movement patterns from a neurological standpoint.  The motor control center initiates our movements utilizing a variety of muscles in any given pattern.  At times, these movement patterns the brain uses might be older, inefficient patterns that it remembers from injuries, trauma, scars, etc.  NeuroKinetic Therapy helps me discover those inefficient patterns and get the motor control center to revert to its original, efficient pattern.  It is rather like a google maps construction reroute that never reverts back to the quickest A to B route.

What do I wear?

I recommend clothes that allow for full range of motion, while maintaining modesty (we do many exercises on our back with our legs in the air).  We work either barefoot or with socks with grippers on the bottom. Socks with grippers or shoes are mandatory for any clients with fungal, wart or other foot infections.

Why do you require 1 - 2 introductory, private sessions?

Pilates is a movement method that works best when the body is in good alignment.  Every person’s alignment and ability varies, and in order for me to assess what approach would work best for your body, I need 1 to 2 sessions to see how you move.  If you are new to pilates, these sessions will introduce you to what alignment I am looking for as you move.  If you have been doing pilates for a while, the intro sessions will introduce you to my form of pilates (each instructor will bring their own nuance to the method).

What is your cancellation policy?

I require a 24 hour notice of cancellation for your session.  Any notice given less than 24 hours will result in a full charge for your session.

What is your refund policy?

There are no refunds.  If you have purchased a package, I will work with you to use those sessions up.

What is your inclement weather policy?

I will email those clients who have scheduled sessions and notify them of any studio closings as soon as possible.  Please be sure to check your email before leaving on those days where we have black ice, white outs, etc.  Notification will occur at least one hour ahead of scheduled sessions.

Where do I park?
The studio has 2 entrances, one on the east side of the building along Blue Star Highway, and one on the south side of the building. Clients are asked to park on the south side if possible, and to use that entrance. The south side entrance has a yellow chair next to the door, along with The Pilates Hive sign.
Why does your intake form have so many questions on it?

Our body carries its lifetime of experiences with it.  These experiences all leave an imprint which will manifest itself one way or another.  If I have a full history and background of those experiences, it will facilitate a faster discovery of the first causes in movement dysfunction.
