{So you’re new here}
Intimidated by Pilates? Don’t be. At Pure Pilates, we welcome all shapes, sizes and skill levels – and our instructors know how to make you feel at home. If you’re attending your first class, here are a few tips to get you comfortable:

Come early. We’re not school marms or anything, but if you’re a first-timer, come in a few minutes early to fill out some paperwork and get to know the studio.

What to wear. Stretchy pants welcome. Wear comfortable clothing that is appropriate for exercise. Your pants should allow you to move easily and your top should be fitted or semi-fitted. It’s in your best interest to wear fitted clothing so our instructors can keep an eye on your form and alignment so avoid baggy, loose clothing or shorts. Stretchy lycra fabrics are awesome for ease and freedom of movement (think yoga pants or leggings).No shoes beyond the shoji doors, so leave those with your belongings. Please no jewelry, strong-scented perfumes, or lotions.

Toesocks are mandatory inside the studio.

Towels. In our efforts to provide you and your fellow students a pleasant and clean environment, we ask that you bring your own towels for all your needs during class. We will have Pure Pilates towels available to purchase for $2.

Be talkative. Your instructor is there to make sure you get the most out of your Pilates session, so feel free to chat her up. Tell your instructor about any medical conditions, injuries, pregnancies or other issues that could limit your ability to exercise. This will help your instructor modify movements appropriately for you.

Disconnect. The beauty of our studio is that it allows you to exercise and rehabilitate in a calm, tranquil environment. Noisy, buzzing, vibrating devices won’t help any of us get our groove, so keep your cell phones silent or leave them in the car.

{studio policies}
We love surprises, but not when it comes to company policies. Here’s what you need to know before you come to class.

Cancellation policy. Can’t make it to a class? No big deal, just cancel online at least 8 hours in advance. If you cancel within 8 hours or ditch the class altogether, you’ll lose the class or, if you’re an unlimited member, you’ll incur a $7 fee charged to the credit card on file. We understand that life is unpredictable, so if you know you can’t make a class and you’re already inside the 8-hour window, just call us. We’ll do everything we can to fill your spot.

Expiration policy. Milk, yogurt, even chocolate – the best things in life expire. If you bought a package, keep in mind that it might have an expiration date attached to it. If you have unused, expired classes, don’t panic: buying another package will reactivate it.

Payment plans. The worry-relieving attributes of Pilates won’t do you much good if you’re stressing out about finances. We offer flexible payment plans on all of our packages. Just ask us!

Sharing. Sharing is caring, so you’re free to gift purchased sessions to family or friends. This, of course, excludes unlimited packages

Guarantees. They say there are no guarantees in life, but we don’t agree. We want you to have a great experience at our studio. If, for any reason, you’re unhappy with your session, we’ll refund you. Period.
