Frequently Asked Questions

Can I stop in and talk to someone?

While we would love for you to stop in and take a tour or our studio, our administration and bookings are fully online.  To keep class prices competitive, we do not maintain a full time receptionist. However, we do answer the phone (when we are not teaching) and are always happy to discuss specific questions.  If you are new to Pilates and want some dedicated guidance, you can schedule a $60 introductory private session to address your goals, needs and concerns one-on-one.

What is the best way to book a Group class?

To book a group class, simply purchase one of our packages or click the “Book Now” link on our website.  This will connect you to our live schedule and availability.

What should I wear?

Comfortable clothing that allows for movement. Most clients wear yoga pants & a tank top or tee shirt that is neither non-constricting or too loose. Your clothing doesn’t need to be skin tight, but it does help if it is more on the fitted side (helps your instructor see the way your body moves). Non-slip tread socks, yoga socks or grippy socks are highly recommended.

What is the best way to book a Private appointment?

The best way to book a Private appointment is to call us at 646 766 0143.  We can match you with an instructor who can help you get the most from your session. Once you have a regular cadence with an instructor, we encourage you to book further appointments using the online booking tool under the Appointments link.

Do I have to be in shape to do Pilates?

Anyone can start Pilates at any level. Classes will be catered to meet your fitness needs based on where you level of ability.  However, as with any pyhical exercise, please do speak with your instructor about any pre-existing medical condtions before the start of each class.

How often should I do Pilates?

The ideal Pilates practice is 2-3 times per week. We suggest starting with one session (100% more than you are doing now!) and adding more sessions when you can. The more sessions you do per week, the quicker you will see results.

How long do I need to take Pilates to see changes in my body?

With regular sessions, in less than one month you will see and feel a difference in your overall body strength and composure. Every body is different, but wonderful changes will happen if you commit to doing Pilates every week! As Joseph Pilates himself said, “In ten sessions, you’ll feel the difference, in twenty you’ll see the difference, and in thirty you’ll have a new body.”

What is your cancellation policy for sessions?

Once you book a class with us, your spot is reserved in class and we never over-book clients. We have a 24-hour cancellation policy to allow the studio and teacher to book another client and fill the spot in class or appointment time.

Under what circumstances does the studio cancel a class?

We apologize for the rare occasions when we have to cancel a class. There are 3 situations that may cause us to cancel:

  • If a teacher is unexpectedly sick and we are unable to find a substitute;
  • In the event of terrible weather (blizzards etc);
  • If there is no one signed into a class 2 hours prior to the scheduled start.

If you are booked into a class that we need to cancel, we will reach out to you and do our best to accommodate your preferred alternative schedule.
