Getting Started & House Keeping
How do I begin at HARA Beyond Movement Studio?
This depends on you. Do you have an injury, recovering from illness, surgery, birth, need to train for a specific sport or art form, are you a beginner or experienced student? Our Pilates MAT, Barre, Buff Bones®, Yoga and GYROKINESIS® Exercise group classes are for the healthy body, free from injury, however we do offer some Specialty classes - see our timetable for these. If you are a beginner, you would start with the Beginners class courses, 101 workshops or a general level class prior to attending our dynamic classes. If you have chronic pain, are recovering from illness or surgery or have a special condition or goal in mind, you most likely need to stay with Private 1:1 studio sessions. We have Duo sessions for those who don’t require one on one attention and you still experience training catered to your own specific needs and Specialty Pilates MAT and Yoga Therapy classes.
Are there change rooms at the studio?
Yes. We have a changing room, shower and towels for hire.
Do I bring my own mat?
We have Pilates Mats for everyone . There are yoga mats for use and you may use them at no extra cost(for hygienic reasons because of bare feet we suggest that you buy your own.)
Is there parking near the studio?
Yes. There are 6 allocated parking spaces for HARA students along the East wall of the studio. The other parking on the site is allocated to the other businesses from 8.30am-5.30pm, however outside of these hours HARA students may also use these carparks. Please be polite to our neighbours. On West High St directly in front of our studio driveway there is 2 hour parking. Across the road in Lister Street and around the corner in Murdock Street there is 2 hour parking. There is a Council car park down West High Street which is accessed from Scarba St and another council car park in Lister Street.
