Health and Wellbeing
Pilates & Co are committed to ensuring the health and wellbeing of all of our studio clients. You are required to inform the studio and our instructors of any health risks, pre-existing injuries, illness, pregnancy, a medical condition or anything that may affect your exercise practice before starting a class. Pilates & Co’s instructors and staff are not trained medical professionals, and Pilates & Co recommends that you seek medical advice before participating in any classes at our studio.
Participating in any exercise at our studio or events is done so at the client/member’s own risk. All new students are required to sign a liability waiver.
All of our instructors will use methods in which they may ‘correct’ or adjust a client’s Pilates poses or exercise form, and as such might make physical contact. This type of instruction is in place to ensure safer practice and limit of injury to clients while exercising. By taking part in a class you acknowledge that you accept this method of instruction and take part in the class at your own risk.
Pilates & Co reserves the right to make changes to the class schedules, opening hours, membership pricing and instructors at any time.
You are responsible for the loss, theft or breakage of any personal belongings you bring into the studio. We recommend not bringing valuable items into sessions, such as phones, jewellery, wallets or purses.
