Spring Session and Studio News




Spring 2021 is here!!! This email brings news of significant changes for Pilates EQ as well as important spring registration information. 

One year ago, almost to the day, our classes were suspended because of COVID-19 restrictions.  Thank you all for supporting us during these past twelve months, which have been challenging for each of us in our own ways.  Happily, we are feeling hopeful that positive changes are coming and lighter days are ahead. 

With that said, Pilates EQ has some big news.  We will be closing our Roots on Whyte location as of May 14th, 2021.  We are excited to focus on our Pilates EQ Online Platform and take some time to re-evaluate the future for Pilates EQ in-studio programming.  We will be taking a break from a physical space to find the right future home.  We are looking at possible temporary spaces, but we don't have details to share as of yet. We would like to publicly thank our landlords, Judy and Barry Campbell, for their support over these past number of years.

We understand this news will be disappointing to you, as much as it is for us.  We have been in this beautiful space for nine years, but sadly, we can not continue here for various reasons.  Firstly, our lease was coming up for renewal and with the uncertainties of COVID-19, we did not feel able to commit to a long term lease.  Even though the government has currently given us the ability to have group classes, the size restrictions limit our revenue significantly and the overhead in this location is not sustainable. Secondly, health problems have been a significant concern this past year and we know we have to look after our own health first, so that we can continue to help you in your own wellness journey.

We are very thankful to all of our teaching staff, for helping us adapt and stay in business during these uncertain times with COVID-19. They all jumped on board, moving to online teaching, without any hesitation.  We are thrilled that all of our teachers have agreed to continue teaching with Pilates EQ Online. They too are excited about growing this part of the business.

Then there is our incredible Jen!!! Jen has been such a significant voice and heart of Pilates EQ for well over 10 years. She is planning to stay with us in her regular capacity, until the end of June. As our future plans unfold, Jen wants to continue with us in some capacity, as our needs become more clear. 

In summary, we are planning one final 6 week equipment session in this location. Registration begins Friday, March 19th. Registration for our Spring Live Virtual classes (7 week session) also begins on Friday March 19th.  The dates are as follows:

 Full details and the links are in the next section below.

This next virtual session will look very much like our current session, in terms of offerings of classes.  Over the next number of months, we want to invest in more live virtual classes and pre-recorded virtual training. Please keep in touch and give us ideas of what you might like to see in terms of expanded programming.  Spring schedule link here

We hope that those of you who have not tried our virtual classes, will be open to this new adventure.  You could always start with a virtual private, to get you feeling more comfortable. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via email or phone. Jen can forward questions to the studio to us personally as well.

Thank you again for all your support.

With gratitude,

Kelly, Lorraine and the Pilates EQ team
