We can’t believe it’s that time already! Yes, Christmas is just around the corner. And we’d love you to join us to celebrate on Friday 8th December. Join us for a catch up and a drink to celebrate a wonderful 2017 for our pilates community! It’s been a great year with lots of achievements in and out of the studio, and we would love to shout you a drink to say thanks for being a part of it.
Movement Principle Christmas Drinks
Friday 8th December from 6pm
Jessie’s Girl, 110 Petrie Terrace
In this newsletter we have a little housekeeping for you in regards to opening hours, closed dates and how the studio operates the booking system going into 2018. Please read all the info below and don’t hesitate to email if you have any questions.
Studio Closures & Schedules
This year both studios will trade with their full schedules up until close of business on December 23rd, making sure to keep you moving better right up until the Christmas break!
After a short break we will resume our full schedules across both studios from first thing on Tuesday January 2nd, allowing you to get right back into your regular routine or treat yourself to some extra classes if you have more space in your schedule!
Information for pre-paid Package holders
All 5,10 and 20 packs purchased between November 23rd & December 23rd will automatically have an extra months validity (eg. 5 packs will be valid for 3 months instead of 2, 10 & 20 packs for 4 months instead of 3) to account for the holiday period and the days that we will be closed. If you have a current pack that was purchased prior to this, and need an extension, please ask your instructor to help you when you are in the studio or send us an email.
Information for 15 Class/30-day Pass holders
Any 30 day/15 class passes will be extended to a 45 day expiry when purchased on or after November 23rd. We are only closed for 9 days but we understand many of you have family commitments and additional time away from the studio, so an extra 15 days should help you get the most out of your pass.
Please be aware that these passes are unable to be paused for holiday periods. Remember this pass brings you the best price per class to reward you for your commitment to coming frequently. If you are going away for an extended break, you have two options: squeeze more classes in before you go or when you return, or buy a 5 or 10 pack which can be extended by request.
2018 Regular Bookings
The final weeks of November will see our teachers securing all regularly booked clients into the diary for 2018. If you wish to keep your regular booking your teacher will be confirming these in classes next week, or you can click here to fill out an online form.
Again please let your instructor know asap that you would love to keep your regular routine and the return date you have scheduled for 2018 and they will lock that in before the diary becomes available to online bookings. Regular bookings are available for private, trio and group classes.
2018 Online Bookings
If you prefer to book online and manage your own schedule, the online system for 2018 will be open from December 4th.
Friend or family member wanting to start?
Our holiday time sees lots of new clients and visitors to our classes, but to ensure the best service available to all newcomers, our 10-Day Introduction Pass will only be available for purchase up until December 13th. These will be offered again in January but if you have friends or family that may be interested in enjoying the benefits of Pilates over the xmas period then please be aware of the suspension to accomodate for the studio closure December 24th 2017 – Jan 1st. All other casual passes and starter packs are available as normal.
Hello’s & Goodbyes!
We are lucky that 2017 has continued to be a year of growth and expansion for our amazing Pilates community and alongside that we have had the pleasure of welcoming some new instructors to our studio.
We want to take this opportunity to formally welcome Mana Ogawa to our team. Mana joins us from Sydney having trained and worked in a well-known teaching and training studio. Mana’s background is in dance and her deep knowledge of movement and eye for detail is a wonderful addition to our teaching team. We hope you will enjoy her classes and make her feel welcome! We also farewell Sophie this week as she finishes up for maternity leave. We have thoroughly enjoyed having her on staff and we wish her all the best with bub number two! There will be a few other minor changes to teachers schedules for the New Year as we accommodate study schedules and leave, so look out for some new times on offer and additional availabilities across the timetable.
