founded by noam Gagnon | Vancouver, canada | Est. 2005






A private session is one in which the teacher works directly with a single student. Private sessions are an excellent way of introducing the fundamental principles of Pilates or the  Franklin Method to beginning students or to those practitioners who wish to gain a more thorough knowledge of the methodology.  

Mat work and the various Pilates apparatus can be incorporated into private Pilates sessions.  Student and teacher will work together to address specific areas of interest.

Please note we reserve the right to change teacher without prior notice.

Noam Gagnon is a special spirit — His studio is hard work but there’s laughter too. I remember his classes with gratitude and hope that I can return and learn more from a master teacher”
— Sir Ian McKellen (London, England)

semi-Private session

After each individual has had their initial three to five private sessions, semi-private sessions can be arranged. Please ask your teacher about arranging for semi-private sessions, working out with partners or independent studio sessions.

Ideal for workout partners with similar levels of Pilates fitness and experience who enjoy working in a small group setting and would benefit from one another’s motivation.

Instruction is for two to three people (usually arranged between friends) wanting to learn similar things or focus on the same specific areas of interest (e.g. mat work, reformer).

Three to four private sessions are recommended prior to enrolling in a semi-private session. Semi-Private sessions are only booked when a small group has been established.

Finding Noam and his unique perspective on Pilates has been the highlight of my 30-plus years of recovery and rehabilitation from a devastating stroke and several hip and pelvis fractures! Noam’s joyous playfulness masks a profound knowledge and respect for the human body and our ability not merely to heal but to dance! I strongly recommend taking advantage of his generosity of spirit if you possibly can!

“I was trained in Russia as a gymnast as a child and have been athletic throughout my life until a car accident. After seeking treatment from many professionals, I have finally found the healer who is making me pain free and stronger and more flexible than ever. Very grateful for his caring, his passion and extraordinary skill- and of course, perhaps as important- the sessions are fun!

“I’ve been working with Noam over Skype. I was initially skeptical that this would be workable but it has in fact been great: Noam has been giving me highly effective and demanding workouts. He has an amazing eye, and with just a few words of direction can transform a rote, empty movement into a challenging, whole-body exercise. He is especially skilled at tailoring the exercises to best address my body’s particular strengths and weaknesses.”
