  2. At Gia Pilates the following cancellation policy applies to all clients and memberships: Group classes must be canceled 9 hours prior to the scheduled class time to avoid loss of class credit and or late fee's. Private classes must be cancelled 24 hours to the scheduled class time.  As our class sizes are small, late cancelations or no-shows often cannot be filled, therefore another client may miss out on a class. If you are unable to attend your class we request you cancel your class as soon as possible via MINDBODY or the ‘Gia Pilates’ App as there may be others clients that can take your place. Late cancelation (within 9 hours) will result in a forfeit of that session for clients on packages. Not showing to a class will result in loss of class credit and $5 fee for clients on packages. Cancellations via SMS, email or social media will not be accepted. We understand there may be unforeseeable circumstances in which you cannot attend your class. Please email if you are unable to attend a class due to an emergency. If you are unwell, please email a medical certificate to and we will happily reinstate your class.

  16. We have a strict 5 minute late policy. The instructor and/or owner has the right to refuse entry if a client is late to class and the class credit may be forfeited. This ensures clients are warmed up efficiently and doesn't provide distraction to the instructor or other clients. Please be aware your spot may be given to a stand by client or waitlisted client if you are not on time to class. If it is your first class, you may not be able to join in if the class has started as we need to explain how the reformer works prior to the start of class and cannot hold up the class starting on time.

  17. Whilst we love children, persons under the age of 16 are not permitted in the studio for liability purposes. We also want to ensure clients receive a quality class without distraction. This excludes ‘mums and bubs’ classes.

  18. Waitlisting classes: Classes fill quickly so we recommend joining the waitlist of classes you wish to attend. Our system will automatically add you to the class when a position becomes available.

  19. How do I know if I get in? If a spot becomes available outside the cancellation period (9 hours or more), you will be notified via email and/or text and can accept or deny the spot. If you deny the spot, the next person will be offered the position. If you respond yes or do not respond (no show), you will automatically be added to the class and the credit will be used so be sure to reply! Tip: Check your settings via your account to ensure you allow email & text for "schedule reminders". It is the responsibility of clients to ensure they have notifications turned on and monitor bookings and waitlists - not knowing you were added to a class is not a valid reason to return a class credit or avoid fee's.

  20. Your Gia Pilates App will tell you what number in line you are to a position in the class. There will be a tick i you are booked into the class. The waitlists move quickly, especially a day before and day of the class so check in every now and then to see what number you are.

  21. After 9 hours: If you are on a waitlist, please check your App regularly as you can be added to the class with 2 hours notice. It is the responsibility of the client to check their booking schedule and Gia Pilates do not take responsibility or refund classes clients did 'not know they were booked into'.

  22. We will send you a text to let you know if we have manually added you to the class. If the class is scheduled to start within 2 hours and you are added to the class but cannot attend, your class will be returned to your package if you respond N.

  23. Waitlists are treated the same as booking a class and the cancellation policy applies. Please only waitlist classes you can attend. If you are added to the class within 9 hours of the class and cannot attend, it will result in a loss of class credit. We understand things will pop up so if you can no longer attend the class, be sure to remove yourself form the waitlist to avoid being added to the class and losing a class credit.

  24. Pre-existing clients are able to attend classes up until 16 weeks pregnant. We do not recommend starting group pilates classes if you have never done pilates and are pregnant. A medical certificate is required for all pregnant clients to ensure you are not at high risk and it is safe for you to exercise.

  25. A medical certificate is also required for post-natal and post surgery clients to ensure it is safe for the client to resume group fitness classes.

We do not recommend attending group pilates classes with an injury unless the client has provided a medical certificate. Our instructors have the right to refuse entry if they are not satisfied that the client should be attending a class. If refusal occurs the class will be credited back to the account.
