Changes in JoyMoves' programming

A message from Shoshana...

Hi everyone,

I am pleased to announce an important transition for the JoyMoves studio.

For a long time, I've wanted to create a business model that focuses solely on Privates and Duets, since students make much faster progress with the personal attention.

My husband, who is also my business partner, and I have put a lot of thought into this decision and both agree it's time for me to go solo in support of this vision. This means a lot more of my time spent pampering you and molding Classical Pilates workouts to fit your needs. But it also means saying goodbye to my teachers. I want to thank them for the commitment and help over the years.

The plan is that December 15, 2017 will be the last day of Pilates classes at JoyMoves. At that point JoyMoves will exclusively offer Private and Duet sessions taught by me.

We recognize some of you will still have unused class passes then or be within your autopay cycle on that date. I'll work individually with each of you who are in that situation - either to refund the unused portion of your class passes or autopay - or entice you with a special offer to switch to Privates or Duets. The offer will be that we'll take the value of the unused class passes (or value remaining in your autopay) and apply it to one or more Privates that are priced at a 25% discount.

In closing, I would like to thank you for your support and interest in Pilates. It's my hope that this change will enable me to be better serve you in all of your Pilates needs.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have during this transition. I'll also be reaching out to each of you as quickly as I can.
