Frequently Asked Questions
- How often should I attend?
You should attend once per week unless there are special
- How long is a session?
Sessions are 75 minutes and participants are then expected
to complete 15 minutes of stretching at the end of their session. Initial
assessments, shared lessons (one on two) and private lessons are 60 minutes.
- How long will it take before I notice a difference?
This is very individual, but most people notice small
differences after approximately 10 weeks. It may be that you feel a little
less stiff, it may be easier to look back over your shoulder, easier to put
your socks on or your balance may feel a little better.
- What should I bring to my initial assessment?
You should bring all relevant documents, such as X-rays
- What should I wear?
Wear clothing in which you will feel comfortable when
you are lying on your back with your legs in the air. The clothing should
not be too loose or baggy. Eg. leggings and a t-shirt, bike pants and a t-shirt,
exercise pants and a t-shirt . Also, please wear socks.
- How many are in a session?
Normally there are 4 in a session, but occasionally there
may be 5.
- Can I do other forms of exercise as well?
Variety is important for the body and the mind. Therefore,
we encourage clients to undertake a variety of exercise and to include an
aerobic form of exercise such as walking or swimming.
- How do I pay?
You can pay at the end of the session or by the term.
Initial assessments, private lessons and shared lessons (one on two) are paid
at the end of the session.
- What is a term?
We follow the Department of Education school terms, which
are usually 9 or 10 weeks. Only special sessions such as initial assessments,
private and shared lessons are held during school holidays.
- What is the advantage of paying by the term?
You will save money because each session is cheaper than
if you pay each session individually. Under this system all participants have
a set time spot and there is no discount for sessions that are not attended.
However, you may attend a catch-up session if you cannot attend at your usual
time, providing you write your name in the catch-up diary and/or give a minimum
of 24 hours notice that you cannot attend.
- What is the catch-up diary?
When you cannot attend a session you write your name
and your session time in the catch-up diary under the date you cannot attend.
- How do I receive a catch-up?
Look in the catch-up diary for a name showing when someone
will be away at a date and time that suits you. Cross that name out and write
your own name beside it. However, if you fail to attend a catch-up session
you cannot re-schedule. Please note: catch-up sessions are only available
for continuing clients. It is not possible to do catch-up sessions once you
are not paying term fees.
- What do I do if I want to go away for several weeks?
If you anticipate missing several sessions then it may
be better to give up your spot and re-enrol when you return.
- Are there any discounts?
There are discounts for clients taking two or more sessions
per week or clients on an aged pension.
