Policies and FAQs

What should I wear or bring to the studio?
Wear anything you feel comfortable exercising in. Layers are usually a good option. Socks or bare feet. No need to bring a mat. We have a water cooler. Please bring a water bottle for yourself.

Why is there a 24 hour cancellation policy?
Our cancellation policy is a way of guaranteeing your reserved space in the studio. It’s also a way for our teachers to be guaranteed payment for the classes they teach. Many thanks to all our students for respecting this policy.

How do I sign up for classes?
All classes and private sessions can be scheduled online with Mindbody Online, or by calling the studio at (845) 876-5686. We also have a scheduling app for androids and iPhones for booking classes on the go! Review the Scheduling section for more information.

Are any classes drop-in?
All classes should be registered for ahead of time to reserve your place, as space is limited, especially in the equipment classes.

Do class packages expire?
All packages have a three month expiration date. If your package does expire and you still want to use classes, you may contact the studio within one year of the expired package and the money will be placed into your account as credit for any classes at the full rate per class (for three additional months only).

How many times per week should I come?
Many people find that attending 1-3 classes per week is the perfect amount of times to visit the studio, to fully immerse the body in the pilates method, and to feel the benefits more effectively. Of course, Joseph Pilates recommended doing pilates every day – so that’s a goal to keep in mind!

I’m not flexible and feel like I’ll look like a complete dork in class, can I still try pilates?
Lacking flexibility, coordination, or feeling un-fit are great reasons to do Pilates in the first place! No one starts something new as anything but a beginner, anyway! At Rhinebeck Pilates, we are all friendly, encouraging and welcoming to new students in class. Come!
