Policies.

Reservations & Waitlist

  • While walk-ins are welcome, we recommend reserving classes online in order to guarantee your spot in class. For your convenience, we also have a free Bar Method app available for your phone. When you arrive at the studio, please check-in at the front desk so we know you have arrived and can ensure you have an enjoyable experience. If you do not arrive prior to the start of class, your reservation will be given away to someone on the waitlist. Click here to schedule a class.
  • You may call in your reservation up to 30 minutes prior to the start of class, however we strongly encourage using the online reservation system. We make this recommendation as the online reservations may book the class to capacity. We do not accept reservations left on our voicemail or via email.
  • WAITLIST INFORMATION
    • Classes fill up quickly, but spaces open up regularly due to peoples’ unpredictable schedules. If you’d like to attend a class that is full, please put yourself on the waitlist. As spots open up, you will be notified via email if you are put into the class. Please reply to the email immediately whether you can attend or not. You are responsible for your reservation if you are put into the class from the waitlist. If you do not cancel your class and do not attend, our standard cancellation policy will apply. You should take your name off the waitlist if you no longer want to be put in the class if a spot opens up.
    • If you get into a class and are already scheduled for another class, please cancel one of the classes so that someone else can attend. You may call the studio at any time prior to the start of class to check your waitlist status if you do not have email access.

Cancellations & No-shows

  • Please cancel at least two hours before class starts to avoid a late charge.
  • If you do not cancel or do not show up for the class, you will automatically be charged $10.
  • You may cancel online or by calling the studio.
  • We cannot take email cancellations.
  • We enforce this policy to give a waitlisted client a chance to take your spot.

Pregnant Clients

The Bar Method allows pregnant clients to continue taking class. We have adopted several modifications that allow the exercises to be performed comfortably throughout the pregnancy. However, we still need to adhere to the following policies:

  • Pregnant clients may participate only with doctor’s permission (Please provide a doctor’s note).
  • Pregnant clients may take the first half of class for half price if needed (focus is on arms and legs).
  • Please inform your teacher you are pregnant so appropriate modifications may be given.
