Pure Pilates General Terms & Conditions
After an assessment session and first class, clients who purchase passes or memberships may view their schedule and purchase further passes through our Mind & Body online service. Classes last for a minimum of 60 minutes. During the Covid outbreak all classes in the studio will be of 50 minutes to allow for thorough cleaning between clients.
All classes must be prepaid and clients agree to give 24 hours notice when cancelling and/or rescheduling. Therefore if you book into a class and then miss it or cancel less than 24 hours beforehand, you will be charged. Private one to one classes are subject to 48 hour cancellation otherwise you will be charged.
Classes are subject to availability; however, we will always try to accommodate you in your chosen class. If the class is full, you will be put on a waitlist, if you can it is always best to book another class to avoid disappointment.
Out of consideration to the instructor and others in the class, please arrive so that the class can start on time and you are able to participate in the warm up, which is an important part of the class. If you arrive more than 5 minutes late for the class, you may not be able to join in.
The purchase of a class pass entitles you to either 10 or 20 classes. It is flexible, allowing you book into any available class slot that you wish. In the case of a 10 pass it is valid for 3 months from the date of first use, 4 months for a 20 pass. Once the pass has expired, you will not be able to use it. Class passes are non refundable and non transferable. All passes including those purchased in the form of a Gift Certificate are activated on the day of the first class assigned to the pass. With respect to purchases of an assessment & pass as gift, use of the assessment appointment does not activate the pass, they are 2 separate entities.
Gift certificates can be purchased and assigned to a current / new client or can be purchased unassigned. Both will have a unique number which the management system we use will be able to trace, assign and activate. The certificate must be presented at the studio, or the assignee details if bought for a specific person, when booking.
Private one to one sessions are for one client with an instructor and last a minimum of 60 minutes. During the Covid outbreak classes will be of 50 minutes to allow for cleaning between clients.
