FAQs

Do I need to bring a mat?

Yes – due to covid-19, we are asking that you bring your own mat.  If you do not have one, you can purchase one from the studio for £20, or borrow one.  You are welcome to use one of our thicker studio mats underneath your mat to give you the right level of cushioning for a Pilates class.

How does membership work?

Our memberships are super flexible, allowing you to combine online and studio classes. Payments are automatically taken monthly, but there is no commitment.

We now also offer class passes, for those looking for maximum flexibility without the monthly payment.

Do you have a changing room?

You are welcome to get changed in the loos at the studio.  However, if it is possible for you to arrive ready for class, we recommend that you do so.

Can I park nearby?

The nearest car park is a 3 minute walk away at Clifford’s Tower – click here for the car park location and pricing.  There is also limited pay and display parking on Cumberland Street, directly outside the studio.

Where can I leave my bike?

There are bicycle racks directly opposite the studio, on Cumberland Street.

I’d like to speak to someone before attending, how can I do that?

As we don’t have a reception desk, our instructors are not available by phone.  However, they are always more than happy to speak to you in person about any concerns you may have.  Please email hello@yorkpilatespeople.com – we can pass on a message to your teacher or make sure they are available 10min before the class starts to speak to you.

I have an chronic health condition, can I still attend?

If you have any concerns about your ability to take part in a class, it’s best to book a 1:1 session to start off with.  This allows you to work through some of the exercises at your own pace, and to find any adaptations that you might need for class.
