Please read the terms and conditions and waiver set out by Suzannah King at SK Bodyworks which must be agreed to before completing your consultation form and before attending your first massage or pilates session, as well as before signing into SK Bodyworks online studio.
It is always recommended to gain approval from your GP/ Dr or other health professional before participating in any exercise program. You will take full responsibility if you choose to go ahead without gaining approval first.
Suzannah King at SK Bodyworks provides a safe, friendly and professional service from her home studio in Waimauku, offering both a high standard in massage therapy and private pilates to local female residents as well as group pilates classes taken at a local venue.
Private Pilates Courses
Pilates sessions are taken in blocks of 6 or 12 on a 1:1 basis. Weekly sessions are required to help you to maximize results and to achieve your goals. Suggestions and homework will be given to you, as well access to the online studio. Each pilates block has an expiry date for your sessions but it also takes into account any illness and holidays. This is put in place so you can progress from week to week and to help you really feel the benefits from your weekly sessions and achieve your goals faster.
6 week block expires 12 weeks after your initial paid session
12 week block expires 24 weeks after your initial session.
During the duration of your block booking, please schedule your sessions in advance, but if you need to rearrange a session, please provide a minimum of 24 hours notice and Suzannah will try her best to fit you in.
If after two weeks, and a minimum of two pilates sessions, you feel the pilates classes are not for you, Suzannah King will refund the remaining paid amount to you.
Group Pilates Classes
Currently all classes will be held at the bowling club in Waimauku. Please arrive on time or 5 minutes early for your class. If you have any niggles, aches and pains, please advise Suzannah King before the commencement of class so she is able to give you modifications if needed. Group classes are not suitable for those who are pregnant or newly postnatal, those with chronic health conditions or for those with sudden acute pain. If you have any health issues, it is advised to gain your Dr's approval before the commencement of physical exercise. For chronic or acute injuries, 1:1 pilates classes would be more suitable for you upon approval from your Dr.
Please respect others in the class.
We use small equipment in classes as well as using our body weight. Equipment is inspected on a regular basis to make sure they are safe for your use. You are welcome to bring your own equipment from home if you prefer.
