We all often have concerns or questions when trying something new or visiting a new place for the first time. Here, we aim to answer some of these questions to help you plan and enhance your visit to Studio Air.

If you have any further questions other than the information provided here please do not hesitate to contact me at kelly@studio-air.co.uk.

What to wear

Pilates:

  • Comfortable clothes suitable for exercise that allow you to move freely. No footwear is worn and you will either exercise in bare feet or socks (yoga socks are great, but not essential).

  • All outer layers and personal belongings can be stored in your own personal storage box throughout the lesson (all items brought into the studio are at your own risk).

Aerials:

  • Tight fitting layers that allow you to move freely are usually best, as baggy clothing can hinder your performance of some aerial skills. It is recommended that you wear or bring with you layers that cover your body, including legs, back, stomach and arms, as some moves will provide pressure to these areas that may be uncomfortable, especially if they are not covered.

  • No footwear is worn and you will either exercise in bare feet or socks (yoga socks are great, but not essential).

  • All outer layers and personal belongings can be stored in your own personal storage box throughout the lesson (all items brought into the studio are at your own risk).

Changing/Facilities

  • Within the Basepoint Business Centre campus there is a separate facilities block which includes; separate male and female bathrooms, a disabled bathroom, a shower room and kitchen (including fridge, microwave and kettle).

  • Within the studio there are storage boxes for your own personal belongings that can be used throughout all lessons, however all items brought into the studio are at your own risk.

  • Children who attend class must be happy to go to the toilet facilities unsupervised.

What to bring

Water:

It is always a good idea to bring a drink of water to help you stay hydrated.

Camera/recording equipment:

  • For Aerials, it can be helpful to take photo's, videos or make notes of new skills you learn to help you remember them and for you to be able to enjoy and celebrate your achievements. Therefore this is actively welcomed within the studio.

  • However, please respect others and only post items on social media of yourself or after gaining permission of anyone else within the photo/video (it is especial important to consider this within the children's classes held at the studio).

Parking

There is ample free parking on site at Basepoint Business Centre including a gravel overflow car park for when it is very busy. So you should always be able to find suitable parking immediately outside of the studio at no cost.

Timekeeping and forms

  • Please arrive at least 5-10 minutes prior to your lesson so that you have time to get ready, make any lesson payments as appropriate and complete any paperwork required (disclaimers will need completing prior to your first class of both Pilates and Aerial Art).

  • Lessons will start promptly and anyone who misses the essential warm-up section of any class will not be able to participate in the main body of the lesson to protect your own physical health and help prevent against injury.
