Terms & Conditions
By booking a class or private session with Studio Scoop you are agreeing to the terms and conditions as set out below.
We want you to enjoy and benefit from your Pilates classes. The terms and conditions below are set out to help you do this and to safe-guard our classes.
Payments, Cancellations & Refunds
Your mat class or private session is not confirmed until we have received payment from you. If you choose to pay by direct bank transfer, cheque or cash, your place is only secure once we have received it and notified you of receipt.
Cancellations and refunds are possible before the start of the term / block but will be subject to a 15% admin fee. Once the term / block has started sessions cannot be refunded.
Courtesy Class swap system
Studio Scoop runs a courtesy ‘class swap’ system for all termly-booked mat classes, which means that if you are ill, kept at work, or on holiday and miss one of your classes, you can swap your class to a class on a different day or time of a similar level. You can even ‘make up’ a class in advance of you being absent!
All swaps must be booked in advance and cannot be carried over to subsequent courses.
Retrospective cancellations are not guaranteed a swap.
To qualify for the class swap, absence must be notified in writing at least 24 hours in advance.
Swaps are only available where space is available at the discretion of the teacher.
Please still cancel your space even a few hours before the class in case someone is waiting to swap into the space.
If you need more information, please contact us on:

I will stop doing the exercise if I or s/he thinks I need to, or follow the alternatives my teacher gives me.
I understand my teacher may offer me professional advice relating to my ability to exercise and s/he may consider it unprofessional to continue to teach me if I do not wish to follow that advice.
