pilates

Pilates is an unregulated field, which means that anyone can say that they teach Pilates. When Christina Maria Gadar was certified in 2000 by Joseph Pilates’ protégé Romana Kryzanowska, only graduates of Romana’s program could legally say that they taught Pilates, all other teachers had to label their work as “pilates-based.” This distinction no longer exists, so it is extremely important to know your instructor’s credentials not only to gain the benefit that true Pilates can provide, but also to avoid serious injury.

Lesson Schedule:

Lessons are available by appointment.

PEAK SEASON (October-May): Monday through Friday, 7am-2:30pm (6am available for professional athletes during Spring Training).

SUMMER SEASON (June-September): Tuesday through Friday, 7am-2:30pm

Lessons are approximately 50 minutes in duration. There will be no time and/or cost adjustments for students who arrive late for a scheduled lesson.

Check/Cash Rates:

INITIAL ASSESSMENT: $70 (Required of all new students.)

SINGLE LESSON: $70/lesson (Rate for students who schedule less than four lessons per month.)

REGULARLY SCHEDULED PRIVATE LESSONS: $65/lesson. (Discounted rate for those who make a commitment to schedule at least once a week. Payments for regularly scheduled lessons are made on a monthly basis.)

SEMI-PRIVATE LESSONS: $45 per student. (For safety reasons, students must have undergone previous private instruction and have instructor approval to participate. Instructor approval is based on the students’ familiarity with the Pilates equipment and their individual workout routines.)

  • Credit cards are not accepted.
  • Payments for regularly scheduled lessons are due monthly upon completion of the last paid lesson of the previous month. Lessons can not be scheduled without payment in advance.
  • An absence of 4 weeks or more may result in the loss of a regularly scheduled time-slot.

Cancellations:

All lessons cancelled without adequate 24 hours notice will be charged the full amount. Cancellations are accepted via voicemail only. To ensure cancellations are received promptly, cancellations sent by email and/or text message are not accepted (the studio phone number is a land line). Regularly scheduled lessons cancelled with more than 24 hours can be made up. Make up lessons are subject to availability and can not be used as credits towards the next month of lessons.

Attire:

Wear comfortable workout clothing. Form fitting clothing is recommended, but not required. The use of clean cotton socks is required during the workout as part of the Florida Health Code. Please avoid the use of body lotion, belts, clothing with zippers and excessive jewelry.
