We strive to make the Mindful Movement Centre a clean and welcoming space for all. The studio is founded on a deep respect for the practices we teach and for the students and instructors who make up our community. Please follow these simple guidelines to ensure a pleasant experience for everyone:
Before and After Class
Please arrive at least ten minutes before your scheduled class to get changed, sign in, take a sip of water, and settle in.
We encourage you to sign in for classes online to secure your spot. We would hate to turn you away after you’ve made your way to the studio just because a class is full. Maximum attendance is 15 people in group mat classes and 5 in group reformer classes.
Please refrain from using a mobile device at the studio.
Please keep your voices low so as not to disturb ongoing classes or meditation.
Please clean up after yourself: return mats and props neatly to their proper places, ready for use by the next set of students.
Please familiarize yourself with the studio’s cancellation and class-expiration policies. They will be strictly enforced.
Please leave your shoes in the designated area by the entryway. Classes are practiced barefoot or in socks, and no shoes are allowed beyond the studio staircase.
Pilates and yoga should not be practiced on a full stomach, and you will do better if you arrive to class well hydrated.
Please refrain from using strongly scented products in the studio.
Classes begin promptly and latecomers will be admitted in exceptional cases only.
If you need to leave early, please inform the teacher beforehand, set up your mat close to the door, and leave quietly, causing the least disruption possible.
Please turn off your phones.
If you are new to the practice or studio, or if you are dealing with an injury or any other limitation, please advise the teacher before the beginning of class.
If you do not wish to receive any hands-on adjustments during class, please let the teacher know beforehand.
Please be mindful of your fellow students.
Respect your body: challenge yourself, but go at your own pace and rest if you need to.
