If you are unable to attend your scheduled class please cancel in a timely manner so others can register in your place.

Private clients, PLEASE NOTE OUR 24 HOUR CANCELLATION POLICY. Privates cancelled in less than 24 hours may be subject to a charge.


 

DRESS CODE

Active wear is a trend today and is not just warn to exercise. Please make sure you wear something comfortable but allows your body to be visible to your instructor to correct alignment etc.

SHIRTS: Tops should be form-­‐fitting and contour the body to eliminate getting caught in the springs of the apparatus. Appropriate neck lines and skin coverage is appreciated due to tactile cueing and over all presentation.

PANTS/SHORTS: Exercise pants or leggings are suggested at PILATES LIFE but due to the extreme heat in Florida tight fitting shorts are acceptable. Maximum coverage is preferred due to the compromising positions we find ourselves in during class.

UNDERGARMENTS: Please wear undergarment to avoid wardrobe malfunction. Gentleman MUST wear spandex shorts under their loose fitting shorts

SOCKS: Socks are REQUIRED at PILATES LIFE. If you forget your socks, don’t worry, clean socks will be provided for you. However, FUN Pilates socks are sold at the studio for your convenience. We thank you for your support as cleanliness and safety are top priority at the studio.


 

STUDIO ETIQUETTE

 

 

Please be mindful of other classes and privates going on at the studio before, during and after your session to keep noise level to a minimum. We are here to have fun and give you a great work out at the same time. A place to store your shoes and bags are provided for you to eliminate clutter and keep you safe. Please remove your shoes upon entering the studio and silence your cell phones.

As many of you know PILATES LIFE is a teacher training studio and we are proud to have Mentor and Pilates Master Lolita San Miguel as an integral part of our studio. We provide high quality instruction and do our best to accommodate you when workshops and courses are taking place. Pilates was created as a system, integrating Mat, Chair, Cadillac, Reformer and Auxiliary equipment. Although we all have our favorite apparatus, it is your instructors job to give you the best Pilates experience with the options that are available to them on a given day. NOTE, Apprentices will be active in the studio practicing, taking class, assistant teaching and observing. If you are not comfortable being observed please let myself or Nicole know and we are happy to dismiss the apprentice during your workout time. We do appreciate your help in providing our teacher trainers with a positive learning environment.
