A duet Pilates session consists of two compatible partners being taught a Pilates lesson simultaneously. Students are matched up by the studio or include partners who already know each other. Similar goals or issues are helpful in getting the most out of a duet Pilates session. A duet session is also very tailored like a private, however the time is shared between the two clients. The exercises chosen are those that benefit both bodies. All equipment is available to be utilized.
*A private session may be recommended before beginning duets. Private sessions may be recommended if a student's well-being would be better served in an individual setting.
Trio Essentials caters to a group of 3 students and covers essential level material on the reformer and cadillac as well as small equipment such as foam rollers and balls.

Stott Pilates advanced Performance and rehab Instructor
Kitty James has lived in Coronado since 2003. She is originally from NYC where she
was raised and danced professional classical ballet for 15 years. She studied with
The Royal Academy of dance (RAD) and School of American Ballet (SAB). She also
had the opportunity to dance at Pacific Northwest Ballet and Competed in the Prix
de Lausanne in Switzerland.
Kitty first discovered Pilates while recovering from a dance injury at age 14 at The
School of American Ballet. She had multiple stress fractures on her Lumbar spine
and needed a rehab therapy method that would support her classical dance
movements and train her entire body safely.
Kitty retired from dance and had to further heal her body of chronic injuries she had
acquired and used the Pilates method to get her body back online. She moved to San
Diego in 2001 when her husband was perusing his career in the Navy.
After the birth of her 3rd child she decided to undergo her complete Stott Pilates
training and pursue her desire to teach and help others through Pilates. She had a
severe abdominal diastasis and needed to heal herself again.
This has given Kitty the opportunity to train clients for the past 4 years from the
rehabilitation level to a high performance level. She enjoys working with a variety
of clients and is excited to work at Bamboo Pilates and be so close to home!
"When I started Pilates two years ago, I thought the goal I had set was realistic. At age 75, all I wanted was to keep my body somewhat flexible and to build up enough body strength to help prevent injury if I should fall. I have always exercised, but I have watched my body deteriorate over the years.
It appears that I seriously underestimated the power of Pilates. I have seen my posture and strength improve…as I look in the mirror, I no longer see a dowager's hump; my tummy and buns are firmer. My previously slumped shoulders have become square and relaxed, and my arms and legs are gaining strength and muscular definition.
With this new image I feel much younger. I am looking forward to a future that is bright and full of adventure; thanks to Bamboo in Coronado. " - Sheila
"You are never too old for Pilates! Working with a well trained instructor like Julie on the excellent Stott equipment can make positive changes in body patterns that need changing. Learning the importance of correct breathing while doing the exercises; and focusing on Julie's clear instructions and gentle reminders can challenge your memory and be more beneficial and fun than doing crossword puzzles. I find my Pilates sessions stimulating and rewarding. Thanks, Julie!" -Barbara
"Sarah Gereghty is the rarest of instructors-she leads me way beyond where I even could imagine in pilates. She has this ability to make Bill, Sue and I somehow want to please her and put our bodies through a lot. I never thought that I would try so hard. When I am coasting, Sarah knows it, and, with her good humor, gets me going again. Sarah is really the 8th wonder of the world! She is so full of enthusiasm for pilates and ballet and that enthusiasm cannot help but rub off. I just wish everyone could have her teach them. I really feel so much better with the workout she has given me over the past year. Now if only I would do her "home exercise" program. That will be something to strive for.
PS This sounds like Sarah is always fun. She can really drive me to go so much further than I ever could have with anyone else. She is tough but supportive in her teaching. " - Ann
"Since discovering Bamboo Pilates and beginning weekly sessions with Julie almost a year ago, I have gained more than just strength and flexibility from excellent workouts tailored to my individual needs. I have also gained a friend. Julie has the most calming presence, and she makes each workout challenging yet low stress. I used to dread going to the gym to labor through repetitive workouts. Now I look forward to sessions with Julie and I actually enjoy sweating!"
"Julie has patiently helped me work through back problems and weakness due to stress. I have learned to be aware of my body and I feel myself using muscles I didn’t even know I had. I look better, my posture is much improved and I feel stronger and healthier than ever. I always walk out of the studio feeling refreshed, limber and strong. Pilates has definitely changed the way I think about fitness and I am so grateful to Julie for being such a fantastic instructor!" -Katie
