What if I have an injury or am currently in Physical Therapy? Can I still take Pilates?
The short answer is yes. However, in a private setting only and in some cases — your Physical Therapist or Doctor may not want you practicing at all. We will work with you and your medical team to determine what is best. NOTE: Our Group class service level is for those that have no injuries or limited range of motion issues. Anyone participating in group classes must be able to perform and keep up with all exercises cued in a class and so for our clients best care and experience – private training is the best format allowing us to modify lessons to your specific needs. If a current member experiences an injury that causes significant modifications, we will put your membership on hold and see you in a private setting until you have recovered and injury free.
What is Your Cancellation Policy?
We require clients to cancel at least eight (8) hours prior to class without penalty. Cancellations must be made online through our online booking solution. All late cancels and no-shows will be charged $10.00 or $15.00 respectively. A class is also deducted from your account for any missed classes.
How to Cancel Membership / Auto Pay?
We understand things change – Life Happens! We make our contract cancellation process pretty simple and straight forward for this reason. We ask for a 30 day notice, which means any scheduled payments planned within the following 30 days of your request to cancel will go through. After the 30 day window, all remaining payments will stop. There is a one time $50 charge to cancel early if on a longer plan than month to month.
Account Holds / Vacation / Medical Leave Request
All memberships/auto pays can be placed on hold for a $25 fee up to twice a year to keep your current rates. This charge helps us pay for our administration costs to oversee holds. Please email email@example.com with your request. Note: If you are on a medical leave, we will require a physician release letter that you are approved to continue Pilates/TRX upon returning.
How do I see how many visits I have remaining?

When Do You Publish Your Class Schedule?
The studio schedule is released for booking by the middle of each month for the next month following. You may book up to two weeks in advance. When you book your class, please arrive 10 minutes early to sign in and set up.
Do You Have Lockers and Showers?
We do not have showers and utilize our bathroom or office as a changing area. We have cubbies to place any personal belongings in during class.
What should I wear to class? What should I bring?
Please bring a bottle of water, a towel perhaps and get excited! We do have water for purchase at the studio. Try to wear tight-fitting exercise clothing that allows you to sweat. Come with an open mind and be prepared to move your body and have fun.
How Often Should I Practice Pilates?
A successful pilates practice requires consistency and commitment. To experience the true benefits of Pilates, we recommend practicing three to five days per week. A practice of two to three days per week, if consistent, will create transformation over time. Develop consistency in your practice and you will see results. If you are active in other activities outside of Pilates (running, tennis, etc.) two sessions per week may be plenty, depending on your goals.
What if I Am Not That Flexible?
Flexibility is something Pilates gives you so you don’t have to be flexible to begin. One of the main benefits of Pilates is that it brings flexibility to the body. When you sit a lot during the work day, or when you’re engaging in repetitive motion activities, you’re shortening your muscles. Pilates allows you to lengthen, expand and release toxins that build up during these activities.
I arrived a few minutes late to class and the door was locked. Why is that?
We are so sorry. It’s our priority to honor and respect our student’s time. Therefore, we promptly begin and end class on time, and we lock the door after 5 minutes into each class out of respect to the students who are taking class. Please show up to class at least 5 – 10 minutes early so that we can provide a timely and enjoyable class for everyone.
I am new to Pilates. Anything I should know?
Yes. We have an encouraging environment where all levels and abilities can participate together. Ask one of our Pilates instructors or front desk personnel for the best class to fit your needs.
What Are Some of the Benefits of Pilates?
Some of the significant benefits include stress reduction (if you allow it), elimination of back pain, weight loss by building muscles mass, increased blood circulation, improved flexibility, increased strength, improved sleep and relaxation.
