Thank you for your interest in joining our studio community...We're looking forward to meeting you! In the meantime, please feel welcome to fill out our request form.
Please take the time to read any applicable notes before filling out the request form below.
Our studio is not like a lot of other group fitness studios or gyms, in that our primary focus is working with individual clients on a regular basis to build consistent, progressive, personalized Pilates practices.
Because the majority of our existing clients already have regular weekly 1:1 spots, our calendar is not usually very flexible and it may take time for your preferred timeslots to open.
We do our best to take in new clients only when we fully have the time and space to dedicate to your process and your progress.
If you have questions, you are welcome to get in touch via email or text or set up a free 15-minute consultation (online, phone, or in person).
How long is your waitlist? We've currently cleared our waitlist, and we're so excited about it! Our booking calendar is now publicly open for new people to access. You are still welcome to join our waitlist list if you have a specific teacher or a specific timeslot you would like to be prioritized for. If you're hoping for a reccurring weekly or biweekly spot, then we definitely recommend joining the waitlist and letting us know. We also prioritize clients who are dealing with health conditions, surgical recovery, chronic or acute pain, or complex conditions, so you can let us know if you urgently need specific timeslots, and we can do our best to squeeze you in. Because most of our clients have standing weekly appointments and our weekly calendars are already 100% full with our regular clients, any availability will depend on our regulars giving up their sessions or travelling or one of our teachers adding new hours.
Studio teaching hours Our instructors teach Monday to Saturday (typically with the exception of holidays). Our earliest appointment time is generally 8:30 a.m. and our latest appointment time is 6:30 p.m. We will never have early morning (5:00, 6:00, 7:00 a.m. etc) or Sunday availability.
"I am interested in group mat classes" Our group mat classes are semi-private and for four people at a time (maximum). They are usually attended by studio clients who already have regular 1:1 practices. If you're wanting to jump into an established/already running group class, our policy is to require at least a single 45-minute 1:1 new client intake with one of our instructors prior to joining a group class, though the group class instructor may feel comfortable waiving that policy in certain circumstances. Our studio offers nine group mat classes a week (with some available to join online). We primarily offer classes through preregistration (full sign up for a 6-8 week/2-month period), and if there are extra mats available, we may open them for drop in to current clients or people who have done at least one 1:1 session. You can find out more on our Group Classes page.
"I am looking for duets" All our duets are taught by Mykaela, and she typically schedules duets for Monday afternoons/evenings, Friday mornings, and Saturday afternoons. You can head to our "book a class" page, select "Private studio sessions", and then "duet requests" and submit a request for a duet at your preferred time. A member of our team will be in touch to let you know if your request is approved. If you would like to book duets, please already have a partner in mind -- our studio does not arrange for casual duet partners.
"I am looking for group reformer/apparatus classes" While we do have two reformers and we offer duets, group reformer classes are not something we will be able to offer at any point, sorry! Our studio is little and we do not have the physical space for equipment group classes, nor do we have the budget to invest in so many expensive pieces of equipment. We enjoy focussing on 1:1 sessions or limited groups, and we plan to keep our studio small.
"I specifically want to work with Nadea" Nadea's schedule is primarily regularly booked by clients who have standing weekly appointments, and so she doesn't typically have much flexibility to add new people. She may have occasional openings if one of her regulars is away. Her public new client intake is closed, but you are welcome to fill out the waitlist form below. Her new client intake priority will go to folks with referrals (from other clients, medical professionals, etc), pregnant/postpartum mothers, folks in acute pain, and folks with complex needs. You are always welcome to send in a request to work with her specifically, but you may be waiting for some time, especially if you're looking for a specific or consistent timeslot. Exceptions may be made for folks in acute pain or folks who are only looking for short-term appointments, so feel welcome to add that note to your waitlist form. Nadea only teaches on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, so she will never have weekend, Monday, or Tuesday availability. She will never have evening availability. Nadea will not be teaching any additional group matwork classes and she is not teaching any duets. Mykaela really enjoys teaching duets and group classes and she is maintaining a list of interested folks, so please feel welcome to let us know if you would like to join a future class with her.
"I am interested in doing Pilates to lose weight." We've seen this goal mentioned on a number of waitlist forms so far, so we want to address it right off the bat: While Pilates is excellent for building strength, flexibility, and body connection, it is not an effective weight-loss method. Plenty of very strong and fit humans who have longstanding and robust Pilates practices are in larger bodies, including our studio instructors. Root + Reach Pilates is specifically a body and weight-neutral studio. We focus on how our bodies feel, not on how they look or what size they are. We believe that taking care of yourself, challenging yourself, nourishing yourself, and enjoying your life don’t need to be linked with your appearance or body size at all. We believe you can be healthy, happy, and strong no matter what body you’re in. If weight loss is your primary goal and if you want a coach who is going to hype you up with that specifically, Pilates classes at Root + Reach are not going to be helpful in that regard. If nourishing your zest for life and helping your body feel strong, capable, comfortable, and connected — regardless of what you look like — are primary motivators for you, then we’re the right studio for you!
You are always welcome to give us a call or send us a text or email or direct message if you'd like some assistance with getting on our waitlist!
Due to our full teaching hours throughout the day, we are rarely available by phone without prior appointment.
