Looking to get started with Pilates?

We are so excited to introduce you to our studio and Pilates!  Welcome and get ready to feel great!

We recommend an Introductory Session for all new clients, whether you have taken Pilates before or not.  This one hour private session at a discount ($35), gives us a chance to get to know you, to look at your strengths and challenges, and to get you started with Pilates safely. If you have considerable experience with Pilates and you would like to jump into a group class, please feel welcome to reserve a spot for yourself using our online web-scheduler, but all other new clients are encouraged to take advantage of at least one (or up to three) Introductory Sessions at our discounted rate.  

Introductory Sessions can also be scheduled online by clicking on our SCHEDULE/ ONLINE STORE tab on the home page.  Once you have opened the online scheduler, click on APPOINTMENTS and choose INTRODUCTORY SESSION, then select a day and time that work for you to schedule your first session.  Feel free to contact us at 585-381-2640 or via email at michelle@rocpilates.com  if you have any questions or need help scheduling your session.  

We look forward to getting you started with Pilates and welcoming you to our community!

Introducing our Pilates Playground with a Purpose WORKSHOP SERIES!

We are SO excited to bring you this new series!  

Our Pilates Playground will offer monthly, single session workshops on a variety of topics to complement your Pilates practice.  We hope to ignite a sense of discovery for you and give you tools to invite fun and play into your exercise routine! 

That's ONE part of our Pilates Playground purpose.  The other part is about giving back to our community.  Evolution Pilates will be donating a portion of the proceeds from every workshop ticket sold to a corresponding community-based non-profit.  Check out some of the charities we will support in our workshop listing below.  Click on the links to learn more about these organizations and the amazing work that they do in our community.  You can find all of these workshops on our class schedule.  Prices may vary and space is limited!

Introductory Sessions at Evolution Pilates

New clients can enjoy up to three private Introductory Sessions at Evolution Pilates ($35 each).  During this private hour we will introduce you to Pilates and the Pilates apparatus, talk about your fitness goals and any injuries, and assess your strengths and weaknesses.  Even if you have done Pilates before this is a great opportunity to let us help you get more out of your Pilates workouts.  We encourage all new clients to take an Introductory Session before joining any group Pilates class.  If you have considerable Pilates experience, you may choose to waive the Introductory Sessions, but we really hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to have a discounted private and deepen your practice!

You can purchase and schedule your Introductory Sessions in our online store on the home page of this website.  Introductory Sessions can be scheduled at any time that is convenient for you.  If you don't find the time you were hoping for in our scheduler, give us a call or send an email and we will try to accommodate you!

We look forward to getting you started on your Pilates journey!
