Setting up for your class - Checklist

To get the most out of your online class with as little interruptions as possible;

  • Your environment and space are safe for movement; there is no clutter and you have all the equipment you need, as well as a towel and bottle of water

  • If you’d like me to see your movement, you have placed the camera about 2.5 metres from you

  • Your home environment is free from distractions and you’ve optimized your bandwidth

  • You’re ready to focus on yourself and your health for the duration of our time together (if you were coming to class in person you would probably silence your phone/other devices to not be interrupted!) 

Testimonials

I am so pleased that I found Julie in my fitness journey. I enjoy a multitude of sports and activities but I wanted to add something like Pilates to balance out the intensity of some of those workouts, and really focus on slowing it down, and targeting my smaller muscles, balance, mobility, and Core. A huge thing for me was my struggle to prevent back issues. After having done Physio in the past, Pilates with Julie has been key in prevention from injury. She is so professional and really has a vast knowledge of the muscular skeletal anatomy.

 

I was also pleasantly surprised at the variety of Pilates classes she is able to offer, I am never bored as her workouts are continually progressive and she is constantly introducing new tools to aid in that progression and keep me interested. Julie has years of experience but she keeps her style and lessons fresh and current with her own continuing education and variety of classes.

 

I have also taken her Stretch and Yin Yoga classes periodically, and find them equally beneficial. I was super impressed at how well she adapted through the pandemic and was able to pivot to adding online classes when I was unable to go in person. Her keen eye didn't miss a step or subtle movement. 

 

I would very highly recommend Julie and Studio 1 Pilates become apart of your lifestyle

- Heather Y.  

I've found that after all these years of you training me, just seeing your face and hearing your voice puts me in the workout zone. Doesn't matter if you're really there live, I laugh with you and talk to the computer as if you were.

This ballet class has been amazing!!! Love everything. Ballet class with Julie brings joy to my week!!

There is a sense of immediacy and connection taking Julie's classes, whether via Zoom or with the recordings. Knowing she cares about my progress means I feel a sense of commitment to showing up and working hard. 

- Crystal P. 

Julie is an amazing teacher. She is very knowledgeable and knows how to allow me to get the most out of my workout while still having fun!

- Karen S. 

I started taking Julie's Stretch, Yin Yoga and Fascia classes as a way to help maintain my flexibility while maintaining a large volume of weekly cycling. These classes have been fantastic, well thought out, innovative, and excellent instruction. I really look forward to them. The added capability of being able to watch a recording of the each workout allows me to still attend the class even when life interrupts your schedule and you find you cant make the specific time of the class.

 

I recently underwent major ankle surgery and when I was ready to resume my classes, Julie was ready with modified stretches or positions so I could still attend and get maximum benefit from the class. This is the type of attention and instruction only a small studio like Studio 1 Pilates can offer. 

- Joanne D. 

It has been amazing to come back to you this past year, I realized that this Pilates reformer class was my favorite and most important for my health. You are the best instructor, you are passionate and knowledgeable, everyone I have shared my class with has been impressed with you.

- Odile K. 

The instructors commitment to the Stott Pilates method, and continual professional development, is evident in every correction she makes during each different class she offers. Her years of experience also ensures that she can modify every exercise and class to individual fitness and ability level. I constantly recommend Studio 1 classes, not only because of the focus on wellness, but because it is always a welcoming and fun atmosphere

- Gail P. 

I just want to tell you how much I love love love your Barre classes. You are a great teacher, very knowledgeable and conscientious, yet playful . The perfect mix to keep us coming back to do the hard work to stay fit and enjoy doing it! 

- Kelly. 

I've been going to Studio 1 Pilates for several years for Pilates, Zumba and Barre, and the classes never get stale. The environment is supportive and friendly, and Julie's knowledge and ability to modify exercises is a rare quality in an instructor. I'm so grateful that I found such a great local fitness instructor.

- Kate H. 

I am so pleased that that Julie has offered online classes for Stretch, Yin Yoga, and Fascia through her studio, and gives a much needed counter balance to my other sports (running & cycling).

 

While the Stretch classes are a nice, dedicated time to helping with my mobility, and I am still learning the basics of Yin Yoga, my favourite classes are Julie’s Fascia sessions. I have found that over the last year with Julie focusing on different sections of the body during the Fascia classes, that I have been able to make progress on my chronic shoulder issues. A combination of exercises with stretch classes and specific work during the fascia classes has made a significant difference in the mobility of my shoulder, which has been an issue for a long time.

 

Julie is very knowledgeable both in body structure and technique, for all of her classes, and I would recommend them to anyone. While there are equipment requirements for the Fascia, I would highly recommend this class if you get the chance to try it. All of the other classes/sports seem easier to do after completing a Fascia class (everything seems more flexible).

 

-Mike C.

I just want to let you know that I am really enjoying my Pilates sessions. I can see definite improvements, albeit subtle. The long term benefits will be huge. My fitness got overlooked for the past few years but I am excited to be moving forward.

- Tasie C.

I have so much fun in every Zumba class! I absolutely love the songs (and the moves of course), the classic ones and the new ones you've been adding, I'm always amazed by your taste!! I always have much more to say, so if you multiply my comments by 5, that's about the amount of my joy and appreciation after each class.
