MEMBERSHIP AND CANCELLATION

 

Enrollment Fee: Anka requires for all members to pay a one-hundred-dollar ($99) enrollment fee unless otherwise stated by Anka.

  • Classes: Advance booking and reservation are required for all classes. All the classes require advance booking and reservation, and you will not be permitted to participate in these classes unless you have properly booked and reserved your spot. You may book one (1) class online per class category. Anka may give away your reserved spot if you are not in the class at class start time. If you book online (including through our mobile app), you may cancel a booked class up to twelve (12) hours before the class starts. If you do not cancel within this allotted time or check in by the start of class, you will be considered as having “missed” your booked class. Please avoid entering a class late or leaving a class early, as this is disruptive to other members’ experience. If you need to cancel or reschedule a class booking, please do so 12 hours or more prior to the class. Failure to cancel will result in the following: Class-credit members will lose a credit; Unlimited members will be charged $20 for a late cancel and no show.

 

Class Levels: Regardless of previous pilates experience, all members required to start at the “All Levels” class. This ensures you receive the ultimate Anka Pilates experience by covering all the essential foundations before advancing.
