What to Expect:
Studio Etiquette

Here at Concord Pilates, we strive to offer a warm, welcoming, and focused ambiance and community. To assure everyone’s comfort and convenience and to assist in classes running smoothly, please follow these guidelines:

  • Please stop by the office upon your arrival.
  • Please remove your outdoor shoes before entering the studio. We provide shoe mats and cubbies in the office so that we can keep our beautiful cork floor clean!
  • If you do not have your own Pilates mat, we can provide one for you. Pilates mats need to be a minimum of 5/8 inch thick to support your spine adequately.
  • We offer complimentary towels.
  • Be sure to inform the instructor before class of any injuries or limiting conditions you may have.
  • Arrive 10 minutes early for your first session so you have time to fill out a consent form.
  • Wear comfortable, fitted clothing that allows for ease of movement. Loose shirts can get in the way.
  • Please practice either with bare feet or in socks with grips on the bottom. Our cork floor is too slippery in regular socks.
  • Refrain from eating one hour before coming to class.
  • Please do not wear any perfumes or scents in the studio. 
  • Please turn off all cell phones and beepers and electronic devices.
  • Please make every effort to arrive on time to change, set up your mat, gather your props, and chat with the other lovely folks before class.
  • Concord Pilates is also a teacher training facility. Please note that, on occasion, trainees will observe and assist in classes & sessions.
