Bring your Reformer workout to the next level. 
The Konnector utilizes a 1 rope pulley system that facilitates full-body integration and stronger core activation in dynamic new ways.

Not only has my standing balance improved but my dynamic balance has improved since I've been doing Pilates. I can feel that this is one of the many results from having a strong core!!!

I have been doing Pilates regularly, on a weekly basis, for about 12 years, and I found it very helpful with a pain management. It's not only cheaper than co-pay at physical therapy, it is more fun and social. For my physical issues, it definitely works better than yoga did, I like the focus on mobility and toning and general tips for daily functioning. So yes, that's why I usually go for 2x a week at the Hadley Pilates Studio. The knowledgeable & friendly staff helps, too!

As a woman in my 70s, I am deeply grateful to Pilates for helping me restore and maintain balance and avoid injury. Pilates' vital focus on the importance of balance enables me to move more efficiently and improves functional strength to sustain an active lifestyle at any age.

Important information about our software


For months we have been working very hard with our software vendor, Wellness Living.  We have been letting them know of the problems that we have been having, and communicating all of our frustration on your behalf.  Despite our sincere belief that the issues we have raised should be fixed by the vendor, we could not get them to agree. 

Unfortunately, last week we came to the conclusion with the vendor that we cannot move forward together. While we hoped to work out a short-term agreement with them, the outcome is that we will be switching to a new system within a matter of weeks. 

We realize the timing of this change is unfortunate, especially since we’ve recently been making a push for you to buy packages online. We can assure you, however, that we are working diligently to make the transition as smooth as possible for you and our dedicated staff.  We will be sending out additional information with everything you need to know as we get closer to the transition.  

What Happens Next?


We have determined that the Mindbody system has the right mix of features and ease of use for our client’ needs. Their strong industry reputation, their dedication to continuing to enhance their software over the past few years, and their experience working with larger studios like ours serves to reinforce that belief.  

Mindbody is working with us to transfer all key data in Wellness Living to their system. This will make the transition as seamless as possible, since schedules, purchases, and bookings will be migrated automatically.  For security reasons we cannot migrate credit card data. We will be closing our credit card processing account with Wellness Living and opening a new one with Mindbody. Your credit Card information will be reentered at your next transaction and we will work closely with you to make that process as simple as possible. 

How Does This Effect Me Today?

For now there is nothing for you to do.  For the next two weeks you will continue using Wellness Living as you have been.  We will send further emails and post details of action steps that need to be taken in the future.  We will also be available to show you everything you need to know about the new software when the time comes.  

If you have any immediate questions or concerns, please direct them to Katrina.  She will be will be handling all of your questions, which will allow Laurie and Mark to focus on the transition of our software system. 




Plingo

You've just gotten into your fall routine.  After a hectic summer you're back to your regular Pilates routine and you feel GREAT! It's amazing how tall and strong you feel when you do Pilates 3-4x a week.  

But now the holidays. They come faster every year.  There's  4pm darkness, holiday travel, school events, work parties, snowy weather..it goes on.  Your Pilates routine slips. 

We get it. That's why we play PLINGO in November!

All you need to do to play is get your Plingo card at the studio.  Do what the card says (i.e take a mat class, do Pilates on a Monday, Try a new instructor, etc).  Not only will you stay on track but you'll have a blast doing it.  PLUS: You could win a $500 studio credit!

New Prices & Payment Policies

Hello and Happy Fall,

 We hope that your fall is getting off to a great start! We have some important updates to share with you today, as we continue to make sure you have the best possible Pilates experience.


Update on Rates

Like all businesses, we periodically need to adjust our prices due to higher costs. Things like studio supplies, utilities, and rent have become more expensive over the past couple of years. In order to maintain a thriving studio with great classes, instructors, and equipment we need to raise our prices. New pricing will begin to go into effect on October 15th. The changes are detailed on our website (http://thepilatesstudioinhadley.com/2019priceincrease/) and we’ll also have information available in the studio.

 

To make this adjustment easier for you, we have decided that our prices will remain at the current rates until Jan. 1, 2020 when booking online or via the appWe have worked hard to make it easy and convenient for you to book sessions and classes as well as make payments online from your computer, tablet or phone and we want to encourage everyone to familiarize themselves with these tools! We have recorded very short tutorials that will help you step by step here.

 

There are a couple of other benefits of booking and paying online. First, it allows our instructors to spend more time focusing on the great Pilates work they do with you, rather than administrative tasks. It will also give you more control about when you want to pay for your upcoming visits. And you know that traffic jam at the front desk at the end of every hour? Well, we think that’ll go away, too, as more people take advantage of our online tools!!

 

To quickly recap the pricing changes:  

Update on Payment Policy

We want our instructors to focus 99% of their time on serving you rather than on administrative tasks that take them away from caring for you. One area we’ve identified over time as a distraction from customer service is related to our payment policies. So we are making some changes to our payment policies to streamline our service to you. 

 

  1. Unpaid Visits: Unpaid visits will be now be charged as a single class/session. They cannot be included in a package. This policy change will be effective as of October 15, 2019. 
    1. For example, Jamie forgot her wallet and can’t pay for Tuesdays visit.  When she comes next week she will need to pay full price for that class or session.  
    2. To help you keep track of when you need to renew a package, you will receive reminder emails when your package is running low, giving you plenty of time to keep your packages current.  Notifications will be sent: 
      1. When there is 1 class/session left, and
      2. When there are 0 classes/sessions left, and
      3. When the package is expiring in 60, 30 days and 10 days
  2. We will now offer Auto-Renew for your purchases through the website and online app.  This convenient feature sets packages to automatically renew when they expire or when all of the sessions/classes have been used up. 
    1. Auto renew requires a credit card be stored on the client’s account in our secure studio management software.
    2. You have complete control to turn auto-renew off or on at anytime by updating a simple setting in your profile. 
    3. By using auto-renew you will always get the best discount on package prices.
    4. If any of your packages are coming up on their expiration date (a year from purchase) you will be notified 3 times via email or text message, depending on what notification preferences you have set in your account.

 

Thank you so much for your continued support of The Pilates Studio! We love being able to serve you as you become stronger, more balanced, and healthier!! This community makes our job so fulfilling and delightful - we are forever grateful for you. 

Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!!

Katrina and Laurie
