What to wear
Clients are requested to wear clothing that is free from any zips (eg cycling tops/shorts that have zips at the back), as these can tear the leather on our equipment.
We ask customers to wear socks at all times – please bring a clean pair of socks rather than the ones you have been wearing all day 😉
In order to offer you the best instructors and the best service, The Pilates Clinic has to remain strict on the cancellation policy. We always try to do our best for you and this is the one area where we ask our customers to commit to us. The cancellation policy is a generous 24 hours, but please let us know as soon as possible if you are going to cancel.
How to cancel: please use the online booking system or The Pilates Clinic London App. to cancel sessions. Please do not cancel by phone or email unless it is at least 48 hours before the session.
Regular sessions and blocks of sessions
It is possible to book regular time slots – provided you also buy blocks of sessions. However, please note: regular time slots and blocks of sessions are not linked. When you have a regular slot, it does not expire when your block expires; so, you need to notify us if your regular slot is no longer needed, otherwise you remain liable to pay for it. Equally, blocks of session do not require a regular time slot; you can buy a block and use the sessions in random time slots – time and availability permitting.
REGULAR TIMES THAT ARE MISSED/CANCELLED MORE THAN 4 WEEKS IN A ROW, CAN BE TAKEN AWAY FROM THAT CLIENT.
Payments/cancellations / Refund Policy / Expiration of blocks
- All classes must be paid for prior to the scheduled class date to ensure your place.
- Cancellations within 24 hours will NOT be refunded.
- Cancellations earlier than 24 hours will receive a full credit towards a future class based on availability and same session cost.
- Refunds for blocks/sessions will be given at the discretion of Lisa Lamberti, depending on the circumstances. In the event of a refund on a block, discounts will be lost from the sessions that have already been used, card fees deducted, and the balance refunded.
- Blocks of sessions have expiry times on them: All blocks expire after 6 months, and blocks of 50 or 80 expire after one year. If you reach expiry on your block, all is not lost. For a fee, you can extend the block.
- Remember, if you have booked a regular time slot, you are liable to pay for it until you give us notice to stop.
