How to use the studio for
Practice and practice teaching
Practice/Practice teaching hours are determined monthly and can be found in the student lounge and with the education studio. All times are subject to change so please check with a studio coordinator.
Students are invited to observe sessions a part of their education requirement, with the prior permission of the studio coordinator. When observing sessions, students are expected to discreetly observe while taking notes, so as not to distract the class or the Instructor. Please refrain from talking to fellow students during this time. Also note, there are times when the studio is at capacity, we recommended that you call in advance to ensure the availability to observe.
Students are welcome to join client group classes. Two students are permitted in each class if space permits. Weekly sign-up sheet is available at the studio front-desk, but students must check with a studio coordinator the same day if there is room in the class. Clients take priority in last-minute bookings. Students can participate in group classes free of charge during the duration of their course or course bundle. After the course(s) has ended, students can purchase a group class – 10 pack at a 25% discount through the studio coordinators. Students can also keep track of classes and their availability using the group class schedule available at the front-desk and by checking the Merrithew® Studio website.
Students are welcome to take Group Matwork classes provided they have completed the Essential Matwork portion of the course and Group Reformer classes if the Essential Reformer portion of the course or ten hours of private reformer training have been completed.
To confirm registration in a STOTT PILATES® course, a 20% nonrefundable, nontransferable deposit is due at time of enrollment. Final payment is due four weeks before the course begins. To confirm registration in any ZEN•GA®, CORE™, Total Barre®, Merrithew® and Halo® Training Foundation Course or any workshop, full payment is due at the time of enrollment. Failure to submit full payment may result in forfeiting your spot in the course/workshop.
Students enrolling in any course bundles (course fee consisting of more than one course, i.e. Intensive Mat-Plus and Reformer) must register in all courses at time of enrollment, and courses must be completed within 6 months of the first course taken; or 12 months for Full Comprehensive and Full Intensive Level 1 course bundles.
If the student cancels their enrollment in a STOTT PILATES course or course bundle less than four weeks prior to the start date, there will be no refund of monies paid. When the student cancels their enrollment with more than four weeks’ notice, the 20% deposit will be forfeited towards the cancellation fee. Once any Merrithew course, course bundle (consisting of more than one course), or workshop(s) has commenced, no refunds are permitted.
If an amendment is requested to the course or course bundle schedule after the deposit has been paid and within four weeks of the start date, it is subject to $200.00 (+ tax) change fee per course. If the student does not complete all courses within 6 months from the first course taken, the remaining course fees are forfeited.
Upgrades to course bundles are available within the first three weeks of the first course. Any additional fees associated with the upgrade must be paid in full within five days of the request date. Enrollment in any courses beyond the three week deadline will be subject to individual course fees.
Private education sessions (e.g. review, workshop, etc.) can be cancelled or rescheduled with more than 24 hours’ notice, based on Instructor Trainer availability. If a private session is cancelled or rescheduled within twenty-four hours of the session, the participant will be charged for the full session fee.
