• Course enrolments -The number of participants on each course is limited.  Once a course is fully booked there are no more places left on it.  Your place on a course is secured by payment.  This must be made at least 1 week prior to the course starting.  If you have not paid your course fee by this date your place may be offered to someone on the waiting list. You are signing up for a course of Pilates classes with a specific start and end date on a named day at a set time.  If you cannot attend all the sessions on that course it may be possible to swap to a different session if there are places available on it using class swap but we cannot guarantee this.

  • Class swap option – you must log onto the class swap site and list the class you will not be attending at least 24 hours before the session.  If you do not list the session on the class swap site you cannot swap that session.  Any swaps must be taken within each half term block.

  • Cancelling a course – If you need to cancel a course you have paid for we can hold a credit against your name which can be used for a course in the future.  If you are unable to attend and wish for a refund of your course fee up to 1 week before the start date of a course we will refund the course fee minus a £10 administration charge.  If the course has started we will offer a pro rata refund of sessions remaining once we are notified, minus a £10 administration fee.
